As we look forward to our first service at Bramcote College since March 2020, we ask that in all situations God’s name would be praised.



In our bitesize we look forward to next Sunday and what to expect.



In our first reading and next song, we encourage one another with what will happen at the end of time.

Revelation 21:1-8

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.
2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
4He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.”

And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.”





led by Tom and Esther Coekin



Before we hear from God’s word, we ask that we would be ready to hear what he says to us.

Speak, O Lord, as we come to you
to receive the food of your holy Word.
Take your truth, plant it deep in us;
shape and fashion us in your likeness,
that the light of Christ might be seen today
in our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfil in us
all your purposes for your glory.

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
holy reverence, true humility;
test our thoughts and our attitudes
in the radiance of your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
your majestic love and authority.
Words of pow’r that can never fail –
let their truth prevail over unbelief.

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
help us grasp the heights of your plans for us.
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
that will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we’ll stand on your promises,
and by faith we’ll walk as you walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, till your church is built
and the earth is filled with your glory.



BIBLE TALK with Ekids Introduction & Bible Reading

In the next video Helen introduces the children’s material for today, Cate reads the bible passage which Richard then speaks on.


As part of our response to God’s word, we confess that we fail to be the people he made us to be.


In Philippians 1 we are told to ‘let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ’.
We confess that often we do not live in this way.

Despite our encouragement in Christ
and comfort from his love,
we do not love as we should.
Lord please forgive us,
and help us to live like Jesus.

We often act from rivalry and conceit,
And consider ourselves more important than others.
Lord please forgive us,
and help us to live like Jesus.

We look to our own interests,
ignoring the interests of others.
Lord please forgive us,
and help us to live like Jesus.

We do not share the mind of Jesus
in how we live and act.
Lord please forgive us,
and help us to live like Jesus.

Our Lord Jesus humbled himself by being obedient to death, even death on the cross.
His death has won full and free forgiveness for all who trust in him.
Thank you lord Jesus for dying for us. Amen.



We finish our service by praising our all-powerful God.



“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
