We have heard a joyful sound: Jesus saves!
Spread the tidings all around, Jesus saves!
Bear the news to every land
Climb the steeps and cross the waves
Onward! ‘tis our Lord’s command, Jesus saves!

He saves, he saves, Christ Jesus is alive.
His cross and grave become our victory cry!
He saves, he saves, be reconciled to God
Tell the nations Jesus saves.

Sing above the battle’s strife, Jesus saves!
By his death and endless life Jesus saves!
Sing it softly through the gloom
When the heart for mercy craves
Sing in triumph o’er the tomb, Jesus saves!

Give the winds a mighty voice, Jesus saves!
Let the nations now rejoice, Jesus saves!
Shout salvation full and free
Highest hills and deepest caves
This our song of victory: Jesus saves!








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



Only by grace can we enter,
only by grace can we stand;
not by our human endeavour,
but by the blood of the Lamb.

Into your presence you call us, you call us to come.
Into your presence you draw us,
and now by your grace we come, now by your grace we come.

Lord, if you mark our transgressions who could stand?
Thanks to your grace we are cleansed by the blood of the lamb. (repeat)



Matthew 26:17-35

17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Where would you have us prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 18 He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.’” 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the Passover.

20 When it was evening, he reclined at table with the twelve. 21 And as they were eating, he said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22 And they were very sorrowful and began to say to him one after another, “Is it I, Lord?” 23 He answered, “He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.” 25 Judas, who would betray him, answered, “Is it I, Rabbi?” He said to him, “You have said so.”

26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” 27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. 31 Then Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away because of me this night. For it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ 32 But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee.” 33 Peter answered him, “Though they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away.” 34 Jesus said to him, “Truly, I tell you, this very night, before the cock crows, you will deny me three times.” 35 Peter said to him, “Even if I must die with you, I will not deny you!” And all the disciples said the same.





I will glory in my redeemer
whose priceless blood has ransomed me.
Mine was the sin that drove the bitter nails
and hung him on that judgment tree.
I will glory in my Redeemer
who crushed the power of sin and death;
my only Saviour before the holy Judge,
the Lamb who is my righteousness,
the Lamb who is my righteousness.

I will glory in my Redeemer:
my life he bought, my love he owns.
I have no longings for another,
I’m satisfied in Him alone.
I will glory in my Redeemer:
his faithfulness my standing place.
Though foes are mighty and rush upon me,
my feet are firm, held by his grace,
my feet are firm, held by his grace.

I will glory in my Redeemer
who carries me on eagle’s wings.
He crowns my life with loving kindness,
his triumph song I’ll ever sing.
I will glory in my Redeemer
who waits for me at gates of gold.
And when He calls me, it will be paradise
his face forever to behold,
his face forever to behold.



As we come to the Lord’s table we confess our great need of the death of Jesus which this bread and wine signify.

Heavenly Father.
We praise you for adopting us
as your children and making us heirs of eternal life
in your Son Jesus Christ,
who has freed us from our sins by his blood.
We know that we still fail to love you with all our heart,
We know that we still fail to serve you as we ought.
We know we need the death of Jesus for us.

Thank you that in him you pardon our offences
and make us clean. May we continue
as members of Christ,
in whom alone is salvation. Amen.


The Lord Jesus told us to eat and drink this meal to proclaim his death until he comes again.

Heavenly Father, it is our privilege to remind one another that you gave your only Son to die on the cross for our redemption. By his death, as the one perfect sacrifice, Jesus Christ has offered all that was needed to take away the sins of the world. By rising to life, he has assured us of our resurrection to eternal life. By ascending to your right hand in heaven, he has poured out your promised Holy Spirit, equipping us to serve you.

How wonderful you are, our God and Saviour! How rich in mercy! How great the love with which you loved us! You have blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing! Therefore with your whole creation, and with all your people since time began, and with all the thousands upon thousands gathered now around your heavenly throne, we honour and glorify you, saying together:

To him who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb,
be blessing and honour and glory and might
for ever and ever. Amen.



What love could remember
no wrongs we have done?
Omniscient, all-knowing, He counts not their sum,
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore:
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more!

Praise the Lord, His mercy is more! 
Stronger than darkness, new every morn’. 
Our sins they are many,  
His mercy is more! 

What patience would wait as we constantly roam?
What Father so tender is calling us home?
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor!
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more!

What riches of kindness lavished on us!
His blood was the payment, His life was the cost.
We stood ‘neath a debt we could never afford;
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more!

On the night he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘This is my body given for you.

We eat to remember Jesus who died for us.

Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’

We drink to remember Jesus who shed his blood for us.



When I stand accused by my regrets
And the devil roars his empty threats,
I will preach the gospel to myself:
That I am not a soul condemned;
For Jesus Christ is my defence.

My sin is nailed to the cross!
My soul is healed by the scars!
The weight of guilt I bear no more!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

When my doubt and shame hang over me,
Like the arrows of the enemy.
I will run again to Calvary,
That rugged hill of hell’s defeat;
My fortress and my victory.

My sin is nailed to the cross!
My soul is healed by the scars!
The weight of guilt I bear no more!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

My sin is nailed to the cross!
My soul is healed by the scars!
Now I’m alive forevermore!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

It is finished, sin is vanquished!
Hallelujah, praise the Lord!
All the glory, all the honour
To my Saviour, Christ the Lord! (repeat)

When I stand before the throne at last,
His blood will plead my innocence.
I will worship Him with holy hands
And raise the song that never ends,
Of Jesus Christ, my righteousness.

My sin is nailed to the cross!
My soul is healed by the scars!
The weight of guilt I bear no more!
Praise the Lord, oh praise the Lord!

My sin is nailed to the cross!
My soul is healed by the scars!
Now I’m alive forevermore!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Oh praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
