WELCOME by Ed Bowerman



The splendour of the King clothed in majesty;
let all the earth rejoice, all the earth rejoice.
He wraps Himself in light and darkness tries to hide
and trembles at His voice, and trembles at His voice.

How great is our God! Sing with me – how great is our God!
And all will see how great, how great is our God!

And age to age He stands and time is in His hands;
Beginning and the End, Beginning and the End.
The Godhead, three in one; Father, Spirit, Son.
The Lion and the Lamb, the Lion and the Lamb.

Name above all names! Worthy of all praise!
My heart will sing: how great is our God!


We are introduced to our preacher, Tom Coekin!


PRAYERS     led by Angela Godfrey 



Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord,
we will wait upon the Lord, we will wait upon the Lord. (repeat)

Our God, you reign forever. Our hope, our strong deliverer.

You are the everlasting God, the everlasting God.
You do not faint, you won’t grow weary.
You’re the defender of the weak, you comfort those in need,
you lift us up on wings like eagles.



The children can now leave for their groups, those who haven’t yet started school for ‘Pebbles’, and those up to age 14 for ‘Roborip’. 


BIBLE READING by Carey Latham

Acts 9:19b-31

For some days he was with the disciples at Damascus. 20 And immediately he proclaimed Jesus in the synagogues, saying, “He is the Son of God.” 21 And all who heard him were amazed and said, “Is not this the man who made havoc in Jerusalem of those who called upon this name? And has he not come here for this purpose, to bring them bound before the chief priests?” 22 But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that Jesus was the Christ.

23 When many days had passed, the Jews plotted to kill him, 24 but their plot became known to Saul. They were watching the gates day and night in order to kill him, 25 but his disciples took him by night and let him down through an opening in the wall, lowering him in a basket.

26 And when he had come to Jerusalem, he attempted to join the disciples. And they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple. 27 But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles and declared to them how on the road he had seen the Lord, who spoke to him, and how at Damascus he had preached boldly in the name of Jesus. 28 So he went in and out among them at Jerusalem, preaching boldly in the name of the Lord. 29 And he spoke and disputed against the Hellenists. But they were seeking to kill him. 30 And when the brothers learned this, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him off to Tarsus.

31 So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied.



BIBLE TALK by Tom Coekin



There is no other name in heaven can be found
Through whom we are redeemed through whom your grace abounds
No other name can save but Jesus Christ our Lord.

My joy in sorrowʼs tears, my strength to cast out fears
No other name but Jesus, Jesus.
My hope in darkest night, my broken soulʼs delight
No other name but Jesus, Jesus.

There is no victory, but Jesus crucified
No other cure for sin but that our Saviour died.
No other hope we have but that he rose again!

No other throne endures, no other song remains
But ʻWorthy is the Lamb who was for sinners slain
When every knee shall bow and tongue confess you are Lord, You are Lord!

My joy in sorrowʼs tears, my strength to cast out fears
No other name but Jesus, Jesus.
My hope in darkest night, my broken soulʼs delight
No other name but Jesus, Jesus.



My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus’ name.

Christ alone; cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Saviour’s love.
Through the storm, He is Lord, Lord of all.

When Darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

When He shall come with trumpet sound
Oh, may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless I stand before the throne.
