Now why this fear and unbelief?
Has not the Father put to grief
his spotless Son for us?
And will the righteous Judge of men
condemn me for that debt of sin
now cancelled at the cross?

Jesus, all my trust is in your blood.
Jesus, you’ve rescued us through your great love!

Complete atonement you have made,
and by your death have fully paid
the debt your people owed.
No wrath remains for us to face.
We’re sheltered by your saving grace
and sprinkled with your blood.

Jesus, all my trust…

How sweet the sound of saving grace.
How sweet the sound of saving grace. Christ died for me!

Be still, my soul, and know this peace;
the merits of your Great High Priest
have bought your liberty.
Rely then on his precious blood,
don’t fear your banishment from God
since Jesus sets you free.

Jesus, all my trust…(altogether)

MEN: Jesus, all my trust…
WOMEN: How sweet the sound…

I’m going to trust in God
I’m going to trust in Jesus
without shame and without fear.
I’m going to fix my eyes on the hope of glory
for his day is drawing near.

How great is the love of God, how steady is his hand
to guide me through this world.
And though I’m weak in him I stand
and you will hear me say today in faith,
“I’m going to trust in God.”

Now when the cares of life seem overwhelming
and my heart is sinking down
I’m going to lift my hands to the One who’ll help me,
to the One who holds my crown.


We’ll hear from one of our mission partners, Lydia who works for Friends International here in Nottingham



Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day:
Christ on the road to Calvary.
Tried by sinful men, torn and beaten, then
nailed to a cross of wood.

This the power of the cross: Christ became sin for us.
Took the blame, bore the wrath – we stand forgiven at the cross.

Oh to see the pain written on Your face,
bearing the awesome weight of sin.
Every bitter thought, every evil deed
crowning Your bloodstained brow.

This the power of the cross…

Now the daylight flees,
now the ground beneath
quakes as its maker bows his head.
Curtain torn in two, dead are raised to life;
‘finished!’ the victory cry.

This the power of the cross…

Oh to see my name
written in the wounds,
for through Your suffering I am free.
Death is crushed to death,
life is mine to live,
won through Your selfless love.

This the power of the cross:
Son of God – slain for us.
What a love! What a cost!
We stand forgiven at the cross.


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





As the heavens are higher than the earth
so his ways are higher than the ways of this world,
and his thoughts run deeper than the mind of man;
Father, break into our darkened hearts.

Come and drink the river of his Word
if you thirst for water that can satisfy;
come and join the banquet at the Master’s feast
where his love and faithfulness provide.

I will trust in you as you speak to me,
I will turn to you as you call my name,
as the rain gives life on this arid ground,
so your Word will bring your children home.

Come and listen to his gentle voice
for the words he speaks to us are Spirit and life;
come and seek your Saviour while he may be found,
sure that Jesus’ words can never lie.

I will trust in you as you speak to me…


Matthew 25:1-13

“Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. 11 Afterwards the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.





Great is the darkness that covers the earth,
Oppression, injustice and pain.
Nations are slipping in hopeless despair,
Though many have come in Your name.
Watching while sanity dies,
Touched by the madness and lies.

Come, Lord Jesus, come, Lord Jesus,
Pour out Your spirit we pray.
Come, Lord Jesus, come, Lord Jesus,
Pour out Your Spirit on us today.

May now Your church rise with power and love,
This glorious gospel proclaim.
In every nation salvation will come
To those who believe in Your name.
Help us bring light to this world
That we might speed Your return.

Come, Lord Jesus…

Great celebrations on that final day
When out of the heavens You come.
Darkness will vanish, all sorrow will end,
And rulers will bow at Your throne.
Our great commission complete,
Then face to face we shall meet.
