Bless the Lord, O my soul O my soul,
Worship his holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I’ll worship your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning,
It’s time to sing your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.

You’re rich in love and you’re slow to anger,
Your name is great and your heart is kind.
For all your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore.


WELCOME  by Paul Jenkins



You were the Word at the beginning
One with God the Lord most high.
Your hidden glory in creation,
Now revealed in You our Christ.

What a beautiful name it is,
what a beautiful name it is
The name of Jesus Christ, my king.
What a beautiful name it is
Nothing compares to this.
What a beautiful name it is, the name of Jesus

It was for Your sake that You came down
For the sake of Your good name.
Our sin was great Your love was greater
What could separate us now?

What a wonderful name it is…

Death could not hold You,
the veil tore before You.
You silenced the boast of sin and grave.
The heavens are roaring
The praise of Your glory,
for You are raised to life again.

You have no rival
You have no equal
now and forever God You reign
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory.
Yours is the name above all names!

What a powerful name it is,
what a powerful name it is
The name of Jesus Christ, my king.
What a powerful name it is
Nothing can stand against!
What a powerful name it is, the name of Jesus
What a powerful name it is, the name of Jesus
What a powerful name it is, the name of Jesus




PRAYERS led by Pete & Ruth Watts


Our children and young people go out to their groups



Consider Christ the source of our salvation,
that he should take the penalty for me.
Though he was pure, a lamb without a blemish,
he took my sins and nailed them to the tree.

My Lord and God, you are so rich in mercy,
mere words alone are not sufficient thanks.
So take my life, transform, renew and change me
that I might be a living sacrifice.

Consider Christ, that he could trust his Father
in the garden of Gethsemane.
Though full of dread and fearful of the anguish,
he drank the cup that was reserved for me.

Consider Christ, for death he has defeated,
and he arose, appeared for all to see.
And now he sits at God’s right hand in heaven
where he prepares a resting place for me.


BIBLE READING read by Emma Cornforth
1 Kings 21
Now Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard in Jezreel, beside the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. 2And after this Ahab said to Naboth, “Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near my house, and I will give you a better vineyard for it; or, if it seems good to you, I will give you its value in money.” 3But Naboth said to Ahab, “The LORD forbid that I should give you the inheritance of my fathers.” 4And Ahab went into his house vexed and sullen because of what Naboth the Jezreelite had said to him, for he had said, “I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers.” And he lay down on his bed and turned away his face and would eat no food.

5But Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, “Why is your spirit so vexed that you eat no food?” 6And he said to her, “Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite and said to him, ‘Give me your vineyard for money, or else, if it please you, I will give you another vineyard for it.’ And he answered, ‘I will not give you my vineyard.’” 7And Jezebel his wife said to him, “Do you now govern Israel? Arise and eat bread and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.”

8So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name and sealed them with his seal, and she sent the letters to the elders and the leaders who lived with Naboth in his city. 9And she wrote in the letters, “Proclaim a fast, and set Naboth at the head of the people. 10And set two worthless men opposite him, and let them bring a charge against him, saying, ‘You have cursed[a] God and the king.’ Then take him out and stone him to death.” 11And the men of his city, the elders and the leaders who lived in his city, did as Jezebel had sent word to them. As it was written in the letters that she had sent to them, 12they proclaimed a fast and set Naboth at the head of the people. 13And the two worthless men came in and sat opposite him. And the worthless men brought a charge against Naboth in the presence of the people, saying, “Naboth cursed God and the king.” So they took him outside the city and stoned him to death with stones. 14Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, “Naboth has been stoned; he is dead.”

15As soon as Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, Jezebel said to Ahab, “Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money, for Naboth is not alive, but dead.” 16And as soon as Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, Ahab arose to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.

17Then the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 18“Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who is in Samaria; behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone to take possession. 19And you shall say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD, “Have you killed and also taken possession?”’ And you shall say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD: “In the place where dogs licked up the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick your own blood.”’”

20Ahab said to Elijah, “Have you found me, O my enemy?” He answered, “I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do what is evil in the sight of the LORD. 21Behold, I will bring disaster upon you. I will utterly burn you up, and will cut off from Ahab every male, bond or free, in Israel. 22And I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, for the anger to which you have provoked me, and because you have made Israel to sin. 23And of Jezebel the LORD also said, ‘The dogs shall eat Jezebel within the walls of Jezreel.’ 24Anyone belonging to Ahab who dies in the city the dogs shall eat, and anyone of his who dies in the open country the birds of the heavens shall eat.”

25(There was none who sold himself to do what was evil in the sight of the LORD like Ahab, whom Jezebel his wife incited. 26He acted very abominably in going after idols, as the Amorites had done, whom the LORD cast out before the people of Israel.)

27And when Ahab heard those words, he tore his clothes and put sackcloth on his flesh and fasted and lay in sackcloth and went about dejectedly. 28And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 29“Have you seen how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has humbled himself before me, I will not bring the disaster in his days; but in his son’s days I will bring the disaster upon his house.”


BIBLE TALK by Rich Adam



Who else commands all the hosts of heaven?
Who else could make every king bow down?
Who else can whisper and darkness trembles?
Only a Holy God.

What other beauty demands such praises?
What other splendour outshines the sun?
What other majesty rules with justice?
Only a Holy God.

Come and behold Him the One and the Only.
Cry out, sing holy forever a Holy God,
Come and worship the Holy God.

What other glory consumes like fire?
What other power can raise the dead?
What other name remains undefeated?
Only a Holy God.

Come and behold…

Who else could rescue me from my failing?
Who else would offer His only Son?
Who else invites me to call Him Father?
Only a Holy God.
Only my Holy God!


As we come before our holy Lord God, let us confess our sins:

Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
you made all things,
and you call everyone to account.
We admit that we have sinned against you,
in what we have thought, and said and done,
and we deserve your judgement.
We turn from our sins
and are truly sorry for them.
Have mercy on us, merciful Father.
For the sake of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ,
forgive us all that is past.
Enable us to serve and please you,
to your honour and glory,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Let all who confess their sins and trust in Christ
hear these comforting words from the Lord:
“though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow.”

Bread and wine is distributed



Come and see, come and see,
come and see the King of love;
see the purple robe and crown of thorns he wears.
Soldiers mock, rulers sneer,
as he lifts the cruel cross;
lone and friendless now, he climbs towards the hill.

We worship at your feet,
where wrath and mercy meet,
and a guilty world is washed by love’s pure stream.
For us he was made sin – oh help me take it in.
Deep wounds of love cry out ‘Father forgive.’
I worship, I worship the Lamb who was slain.

Come and weep, come and mourn
for your sin that pierced him there;
so much deeper than the wounds of thorn and nail.
All our pride, all our greed,
all our fallenness and shame;
and the Lord has laid the punishment on him.

Man of heaven, born to earth
to restore us to your heaven,
here we bow in awe beneath your searching eyes.
From your tears comes our joy,
from your death our life shall spring.
By your resurrection power we shall rise.



Heavenly Father, we thank you because you gave
your only Son to die on the cross for our redemption.
By his death, he has offered once and for, the one
true sacrifice for sin, reconciling us to you and
satisfying your just demands.

Thank you for giving Jesus for us

On the night before he died, Jesus took bread;
and when he had given you thanks, he broke it,
and gave it to his disciples, saying,
‘Take, and eat. This is my body given for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.’

Thank you that Jesus’ body was broken for us

After the meal, he took the cup, and again giving
you thanks he gave it to his disciples, saying,
‘Drink from this, all of you. This is my blood of the
new covenant which is shed for you and for many for
the forgiveness of sins. Do this, as often as you
drink it, in remembrance of me.’

Thank you that Jesus blood was shed for us

Therefore Father,
we thank you for these gifts of bread and wine,
and pray that we, who eat and drink them,
believing our Saviour’s word, may share in his
body and blood. Amen.


Yes, finished! The Messiah dies
cut off for sins, but not his own.
Completed is the sacrifice,
the great redeeming work is done.
Yes, finished! All the debt is paid,
justice divine is satisfied,
the grand and full atonement made;
God for a guilty world has died!

The temple curtain is torn down,
the living way to heaven is seen.
Through Christ the middle wall has gone,
and all who will may enter in.
The ancient shadows are fulfilled,
the Scripture prophecies prove true,
the sinless Lamb of God is killed,
the promised covenant made new.

The reign of sin and death is done,
and all may live, from sin set free.
Satan and his pretended throne,
are swallowed up in victory.
Saved from the curse of God I am;
my Saviour hangs upon a tree!
See there the meek and silent Lamb;
his final breath he breathes for me.

In Christ accepted and brought near,
and clothed in righteousness divine,
I see the path to life made clear,
and all your merits, Lord, are mine.
Death, hell and sin are now subdued,
all grace is now to sinners given,
and so we plead the atoning blood,
and claim the title deeds of heaven.
