To God be the glory, great things He has done.
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son
who yielded His life an atonement for sin
and opened the life-gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Let the earth hear His voice.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Let the people rejoice.
Come to the Father through Jesus the Son
Give Him the glory; great things He has done.

Oh, perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
to every believer the promise of God.
The vilest offender who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
and great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son.
But purer and higher and greater will be
our wonder, our worship when Jesus we see.





Our children and young people leave us to go to their groups





Lord God, you created all things.
Each of us owes everything to you
and ought to serve you wholeheartedly.
Thank you for all you have given us.  

But we have all sinned
and failed to acknowledge you as God.
In turn, we don’t deserve anything good from you.
We are sorry for many sins. 

Thank you that in love
you sent your Son Jesus Christ to us.
He lived a sinless life, pleasing to you.
Yet He died a shameful death in our place.
Thank you for His death for us. 

Then you raised Him from the dead,
conquering sin, death and hell.
In Him new life and His righteousness
are given to those who believe.
Thank you for His glorious resurrection. 

To all who trust in Him,
you pour out your Holy Spirit,
equipping us to live for you
and making us more like Jesus day by day.
Thank you for your life-changing Spirit. 

This past week, we have had ups and downs.
In our battle with sin, sometimes we triumphed
and sometimes we have given in.
Thank you for those victories.  
We are sorry for our failures.  

You promise to strengthen and keep
all who continue in repentance and faith
until you bring us home to glory.
Thank you for these wonderful truths.  
Please help us to believe them now and to go on believing them.  
In Jesus’ name, Amen 



I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me.
I see His wounds, His hands, His feet.
My Saviour on that cursed tree

His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb.
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone.

O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Then on the third at break of dawn,
The Son of heaven rose again.
O trampled death where is your sting?
The angels roar for Christ the King!

He shall return in robes of white,
The blazing Son shall pierce the night.
And I will rise among the saints,
My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face.

Man of sorrows, Lamb of God, by His own betrayed.
The sin of man and wrath of God has been on Jesus laid.

Silent as He stood accused, beaten, mocked, and scorned.
Bowing to the Father’s will,He took a crown of thorns.

Oh, that rugged cross, my salvation,
where Your love poured out over me.
Now my soul cries out, “Hallelujah!
Praise and honour unto Thee.”

Sent of heaven, God’s own Son, to purchase and redeem,
and reconcile the very ones who nailed Him to that tree.

Oh, that rugged cross…

Now my debt is paid, it is paid in full
by the precious blood that my Jesus spilled.
Now the curse of sin has no hold on me.
Whom the Son sets free, oh is free indeed.

See the stone is rolled away, behold the empty tomb.
Hallelujah, God be praised! He’s risen from the grave!

Oh, that rugged cross…



Matthew 26:1-16

When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, “You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.”

Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, and plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him. But they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar among the people.”

Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table. And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor.” 10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. 12 In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”

14 Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him.





All I once held dear, built my life upon,
all this world reveres and wars to own;
all I once thought gain, I have counted loss,
spent and worthless now, compared to this.

Knowing you, Jesus, knowing you,
there is no greater thing.
You’re my all, you’re the best,
you’re my joy, my righteousness;
and I love you Lord.

Now my heart’s desire is to know you more,
to be found in you and known as yours;
to possess by faith what I could not earn
all-surpassing gift of righteousness.

Oh to know the power of your risen life,
and to know you in your sufferings;
to become like you in your death, my Lord,
so with you to live and never die!

My worth is not in what I own;
not in the strength of flesh and bone
But in the costly wounds of love at the cross.

My worth is not in skill or name;
in win or lose, in pride or shame.
But in the blood of Christ that flowed at the cross.

I rejoice in my Redeemer, greatest treasure,
wellspring of my soul.
I will trust in Him, no other;
my soul is satisfied in Him alone.

As summer flowers fade and die;
Fame, youth and beauty hurry by.
But life eternal calls to us at the cross.

I will not boast in wealth or might,
or human wisdom’s fleeting light
But I will boast in knowing Christ at the cross.

I rejoice in my…

Two wonders here that I confess:
My worth and my unworthiness.
My value fixed my ransom paid at the cross.

I rejoice in my..
