SONG

Blessed be your name
in the land that is plentiful.
Where your streams of abundance flow,
blessed be your name.

Blessed be your name
when I’m found in the desert place.
Though I walk through the wilderness,
blessed be your name.

Every blessing you pour out I’ll
turn back to praise.
When the darkness closes in, Lord,
still I will say…

Blessed be the name of the Lord,
blessed be your name.
Blessed be the name of the Lord,
blessed be your glorious name.

Blessed be your name
when the sun’s shining down on me.
When the world’s ‘all as it should be’,
blessed be your name.

Blessed be your name
on the road marked with suffering.
Though there’s pain in the offering,
blessed be your name.

Every blessing…

You give and take away.
You give and take away.
My heart will choose to say,
“Lord, blessed be Your name.”

WELCOME

 

SONGS

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!

 

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

 

CHURCH FAMILY NEWS

 

SONG

Before the world began, God made a masterplan
To bring all things together under one head
That head is Jesus Christ, who died and rose to life
And now he’s seated at the right hand of God

Once we were dead in sin
Now we are raised with him
By grace we’re saved, through faith in Jesus alone
Part of his body now, united by his power
Joined with his people all over the world

We are the church, have you heard?
He washed us clean with his word
He chose us to be on his team
We are more loved than we could dream

We’ve got good news, shout it out
You’ve got to hear what it’s all about
No-one’s too far away to be
Welcomed into God’s family

Speaking the truth in love to build the body up
We serve each other using gifts from the King
We pray for unity so everyone will see
God’s plan in action in his people today

We are the church, have you heard…

One Lord, one faith, one God, one Father,
One body, one Spirit, we are one in Christ!
One hope, one truth, one cross, one Saviour,
One mission, one future, we are one in Christ!

We are the church, have you heard….

Our children and young people now leave for their groups.

 

PRAYERS

 

SONG

Speak, O Lord, as we come to you
to receive the food of your holy Word.
Take your truth, plant it deep in us;
shape and fashion us in your likeness,
that the light of Christ might be seen today
in our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfil in us
all your purposes for your glory.

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
holy reverence, true humility;
test our thoughts and our attitudes
in the radiance of your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
your majestic love and authority.
Words of pow’r that can never fail –
let their truth prevail over unbelief.

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
help us grasp the heights of your plans for us.
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
that will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we’ll stand on your promises,
and by faith we’ll walk as you walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, till your church is built
and the earth is filled with your glory.

BIBLE READING
Acts 11:19-30

19 Now those who were scattered because of the persecution that arose over Stephen travelled as far as Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the word to no one except Jews. 20 But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who on coming to Antioch spoke to the Hellenists also, preaching the Lord Jesus. 21 And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord. 22 The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23 When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, 24 for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord. 25 So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, 26 and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called Christians.

27 Now in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 And one of them named Agabus stood up and foretold by the Spirit that there would be a great famine over all the world (this took place in the days of Claudius). 29 So the disciples determined, everyone according to his ability, to send relief to the brothers living in Judea. 30 And they did so, sending it to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.

 

BIBLE TALK

 

SONG

O Church arise and put your armour on;
hear the call of Christ our captain.
For now the weak can say that they are strong
in the strength that God has given.
With shield of faith and belt of truth,
we’ll stand against the devil’s lies;
an army bold, whose battle-cry is love,
reaching out to those in darkness.

Our call to war, to love the captive soul,
but to rage against the captor;
and with the sword that makes the wounded whole,
we will fight with faith and valour.
When faced with trials on every side
we know the outcome is secure,
and Christ will have the prize for which he died,
an inheritance of nations.

Come see the cross, where love and mercy meet
as the Son of God is stricken;
then see his foes lie crushed beneath his feet,
for the conqueror has risen!
And as the stone is rolled away,
and Christ emerges from the grave,
this victory march continues till the day
every eye and heart shall see Him.

So Spirit come put strength in every stride,
give grace for every hurdle,
that we may run with faith to win the prize
of a servant good and faithful.
As saints of old still line the way,
retelling triumphs of His grace,
we hear their calls, and hunger for the day
when with Christ we stand in glory.
