10.30am Sunday 3rd May

 

Welcome and Introduction
 
Opening Prayer:
All:
Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life: raise us, who trust in him, from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, that we may seek those things which are above, where he reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
 
Song: Christ Will be my Hideaway

1.I will dwell within the shelter
Of the God Who reigns above
I will rest beneath the shadow
Of the mighty King of love
Though a sickness hides in darkness
Though a plague destroys by day
I will stand upon His promises
Christ will be my hideaway
 
Chorus
In You my God I trust
You are strong and here with us
In You my hope remains
Christ will be my hideaway

 
2.Angels gather to protect me
When they hear my Savior call
Sovereign hands are ever ready
To uphold me should I fall
Safe beneath His wings of refuge
All my fears are kept at bay
I am shielded by His faithfulness
Christ will be my hideaway
 
Chorus
 
3.Though a thousand fall around me
Though death looks me in the eye
Evil shall not have the vict'ry
While the Lord is at my side
God in power raised my Savior
I no longer fear the grave
Through this fragile life and evermore
Christ will be my hideaway
 
Chorus

Confession
All: Almighty God, our loving Father
we have sinned against you, in wrong things we have done, in loving other things more than you, and by living for ourselves rather than you. We are sorry. Please forgive us. We thank you for your Son, Jesus that he gives us his perfection and takes our imperfection. Our trust is in him alone. Please change us by your Spirit, that we might do what is right, love you the most, and live for you this week.  Amen.

Creed:
All: We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. We 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. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen

Sermon

 
Song: Immortal, Invisible
1.Immortal invisible God only wise
In light inaccessible
Hid from our eyes
Most blessed most glorious
The Ancient of Days
Almighty victorious
Thy great name we praise
 
2.Unresting unhasting
And silent as light
Nor wanting nor wasting
Thou rulest in might
Thy justice like mountains
High soaring above
Thy clouds which are fountains
Of goodness and love
 
3.To all life thou givest
To both great and small
In all life thou livest
The true life of all
We blossom and flourish
As leaves on the tree
And wither and perish
But naught changeth thee
 
4.Great Father of glory
Pure Father of light
Thine angels adore thee
All veiling their sight
All praise we would render
O help us to see
'Tis only the splendor
Of light hideth thee
