O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
consider all the works thy hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder;
thy power throughout the universe displayed;

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

And when I think that God his son not sparing,
sent him to die I scarce can take it in;
that on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
he bled and died to take away my sin:

When burdens press, and seem beyond endurance,
Bowed down with grief, to Him I lift my face;
And then in love He brings me sweet assurance:
‘My child! for thee sufficient is my grace.’

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
and there proclaim, ‘My God, how great thou art!’

Awake, Awake, O Zion
and clothe yourself with strength.
Shake off your dust
and fix your eyes on him.
For you have been redeemed by
the precious blood of Jesus,
and now you sit enthroned with him.

Our God reigns, he is King of all the earth.
Our God reigns, and he’s seated on the throne.
Lift your voice, and sing a song of praise.
Our God reigns, the awesome Lord most high.

How beautiful the feet are
of those who bring good news,
for they proclaim the peace
that comes from God.
Rise up you holy nation,
proclaim the great salvation,
and say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Emmanuel, Emmanuel, our God is with us now.

The watchmen lift their voices,
and raise a shout of joy,
for he will come again.
Then every eye will see the
salvation of our God,
for he has redeemed Jerusalem.


We’ll hear about what’s coming up this week!


We’ll hear about how Hope Cumbria Camp got on last week!


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





I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me.
I see His wounds, His hands, His feet.
My Saviour on that cursed tree

His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb.
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone.

O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Then on the third at break of dawn,
The Son of heaven rose again.
O trampled death where is your sting?
The angels roar for Christ the King!

He shall return in robes of white,
The blazing Son shall pierce the night.
And I will rise among the saints,
My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face.

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.


Matthew 24:1-35

Jesus left the temple and was going away, when his disciples came to point out to him the buildings of the temple. But he answered them, “You see all these, do you not? Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.”

As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ’, and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

15 “So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, 18 and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. 19 And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! 20 Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. 22 And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. 23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness’, do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms’, do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32 “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. 34 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.





We’re Not Alone, for Christ is here;
Emmanuel, our God, come near.
We’re not alone, for to our world
Jesus has come, eternal Word.
And as he speaks, our souls laid bare,
naked, ashamed, sin is made clear.
And yet he clothes us in his love:
never alone, Christ is with us, is with us.

The longest walk, earth’s darkest day,
the pressing crowd, his mounting pain.
A heavy load of grief and shame,
breathless that we should breathe again.
‘Father forgive them,’ comes his cry;
silence from God blackens the sky.
A creeping dread in every heart,
lost in the world, now God departs,
God departs.

The dawn will come, the sun will rise,
out of the grave we’ll see hope’s light.
Tomb opened wide, stone rolled away,
morning has come, a brand new day.
‘He isn’t here,’ the angel said.
‘He is alive, no longer dead.’
Our hearts are lifted, souls raised high
Christ is with us, Christ is our life,
he’s our life.

‘Never alone’, is now our cry,
in joy, in grief, in lonely sin.
Never alone, for Christ is ours:
he lives in us, we live in him.
And till we reach that final day
when fears are gone, cast far away,
we’ll live secure, trust in his love;
never alone, Christ is with us,
he’s with us.
