Word of Scripture 
O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. Ps 63:1–3 


Opening prayer
Loving God, we have come to worship you. 

Help us to pray to you in faith, 

to sing your praise with gratitude, 

and to listen to your word with eagerness; 

through Christ our Lord. 




Water You turned into wine

Opened the eyes of the blind

There's no one like You

None like You


Into the darkness You shine

Out of the ashes we rise

There's no one like You

None like You


Our God is greater

Our God is stronger

God You are higher than any other

Our God is healer

Awesome in power our God our God


And if our God is for us

Then who could ever stop us

And if our God is with us

Then what could stand against

And if our God is for us

Then who could ever stop us

And if our God is with us

Then what could stand against

(Then) what could stand against

In the eye of the storm

You remain in control

In the middle of the war

You guard my soul

You alone are the anchor

When my sails are torn

Your love surrounds me

(In the eye of the storm)


When my hopes and dreams are far from me

And I'm runnin' out of faith

I see the future I picture

Slowly fade away

And when the tears of pain and heartache

Are pouring down my face

I find my peace in Jesus' name

Bible Reading: Mark 6:1–13


Children leave for their own activities.


Almighty God, our heavenly Father, 

we have sinned against you 

and against our neighbour 

in thought and word and deed, 

through negligence, through weakness, 

through our own deliberate fault. 

We are truly sorry 

and repent of all our sins. 

For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, 

who died for us, 

forgive us all that is past 

and grant that we may serve you in newness of life 

to the glory of your name. 


May almighty God, 

who sent his Son into the world to save sinners, bring you his pardon and peace, now and for ever. 



Bible Reading: Daniel 1:1-21



Over the mountains and the sea

Your river runs with love for me

And I will open up my heart and

let the Healer set me free

I'm happy to be in the truth

And I will daily lift my hands

For I will always sing of when

Your love came down


I could sing of Your love forever

I could sing of Your love forever


Oh I feel like dancing,

it's foolishness I know

But when the world has seen the light

They will dance with joy

like we're dancing now

When the music fades all is stripped away

And I simply come

Longing just to bring something that's of worth

That will bless Your heart


I'll bring You more than a song

For a song in itself is not what You have required

You search much deeper within

Through the way things appear

You're looking into my heart


I'm coming back to the heart of worship

And it's all about You all about You Jesus

I'm sorry Lord for the thing I've made it

When it's all about You all about You Jesus


King of endless worth no one could express

How much You deserve

Though I'm weak and poor all I have is Yours

Ev'ry single breath

Sermon: Patrick Lambert 


Affirmation of Faith 

I believe in God, the Father almighty, 

creator of heaven and earth. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, 

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

born of the Virgin Mary, 

suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, died, and was buried; 

he descended to the dead. 

On the third day he rose again; 

he ascended into heaven, 

he is seated at the right hand of the Father, 

and he will come to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy catholic Church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting. 




Lord’s Prayer 

As our Saviour taught us, so we pray

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours now and for ever.  




What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer

There is no more for heaven now to give

He is my joy my righteousness and freedom

My steadfast love my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus

For my life is wholly bound to his

Oh how strange and divine I can sing all is mine

Yet not I but through Christ in me


The night is dark but I am not forsaken

For by my side the Saviour he will stay

I labour on in weakness and rejoicing

For in my need his power is displayed

To this I hold my Shepherd will defend me

Through the deepest valley he will lead

Oh the night has been won and I shall overcome

Yet not I but through Christ in me


No fate I dread I know I am forgiven

The future sure the price it has been paid

For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon

And he was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold my sin has been defeated

Jesus now and ever is my plea

Oh the chains are released I can sing I am free

Yet not I but through Christ in me


With every breath I long to follow Jesus

For he has said that he will bring me home

And day by day I know he will renew me

Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus

All the glory evermore to him

When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat

Yet not I but through Christ in me


When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat

Yet not I but through Christ in me

Yet not I but through Christ in me!

Offertory Prayer

God of all goodness and grace,  

receive the gifts we offer;  

and grant that our whole life may give you glory and praise;  

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  




You're the Word of God the Father

From before the world began

Ev'ry star and ev'ry planet

Has been fashioned by Your hand

All creation holds together

By the power of Your voice

Let the skies declare Your glory

Let the land and seas rejoice


You're the author of creation

You're the Lord of everyone

And Your cry of love rings out

Across the lands


Yet You left the gaze of angels

Came to seek and save the lost

And exchanged the joy of heaven

For the anguish of a cross

With a prayer You fed the hungry

With a word You stilled the sea

Yet how silently You suffered

That the guilty may go free


With a shout You rose victorious

Wresting victory from the grave

And ascended into heaven

Leading captives in Your wake

Now You stand before the Father

Interceding for Your own

From each tribe and tongue and nation

You are leading sinners home

Closing Prayer

Lord, you have brought us through this day 

to a time of reflection and rest. 

Calm us, 

and give us your peace to refresh us. 

Keep us close to Christ 

that we may be closer to one another 

because of his perfect love. 

In his name we pray. 



May God keep you in all your days. 

May Christ shield you in all your ways. 

May the Spirit bring you healing and peace. 

May God the Holy Trinity drive all darkness from you 

and pour upon you blessing and light.  



Please do join us for coffee after the service in the Parish hall
