Pentecost service

Tomorrow our Pentecost service includes a sermon from Rev Clive and hymns by Denise. Our service link will be posted here early tomorrow morning and also remember our zoom coffee at 11:30am. It would be great to beat our record number last week!

The words to the songs are as follows:

Be Still

Be still, for the presence of the Lord,
The holy One, is here;
Come bow before him now
With reverence and fear
In him no sin is found
We stand on holy ground.
Be still, for the presence of the Lord,
The holy One, is here.

Be still, for the glory of the Lord
Is shining all around;
He burns with holy fire,
With splendour he is crowned:
How awesome is the sight
Our radiant king of light!
Be still, for the glory of the Lord
Is shining all around.

Be still, for the power of the Lord
Is moving in this place:
He comes to cleanse and heal,
To minister his grace –
No work too hard for him.
In faith receive from him.
Be still, for the power of the Lord
Is moving in this place.

Spirit of the living God

Spirit of the Living God
Fall afresh on me
Spirit of the Living God
Fall afresh on me
Melt me mold me
Fill me use me
Spirit of the Living God
Fall afresh on me

Lyrics for tomorrows worship songs:

JESUS, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL NAME

Jesus, what a beautiful name.
Son of God, Son of Man, Lamb that was slain.
Joy and peace, strength and hope,
Grace that blows all fear away.
Jesus, what a beautiful name.

Jesus, what a beautiful name.
Truth revealed, my future sealed, healed my pain.
Love and freedom, life and warmth,
Grace that blows all fear away.
Jesus, what a beautiful name.

THERE IS A REDEEMER

There is a redeemer, Jesus, God’s own Son.
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Holy One.

Thank you, oh my Father
For giving us Your Son
And leaving Your Spirit
‘Til the work on earth is done.

Jesus my redeemer, name above all names.
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Oh, for sinners slain.

Thank you, oh my Father
For giving us Your Son
And leaving Your Spirit
‘Til the work on earth is done.

When I stand in glory, I will see His face.
And there I’ll serve my King forever in that Holy Place.

Thank you, oh my Father
For giving us Your Son
And leaving Your Spirit
‘Til the work on earth is done

O LORD, MY ROCK AND MY REDEEMER

O Lord, my rock and my redeemer

Greatest treasure of my longing soul
My God, like You there is no other
True delight is found in You alone
Your grace, a well too deep to fathom
Your love exceeds the heavens’ reach
Your truth, a fount of perfect wisdom
My highest good and my unending need.

O Lord, my rock and my redeemer
Strong defender of my weary heart
My sword to fight the cruel deceiver
And my shield against his hateful darts
My song when enemies surround me
My hope when tides of sorrow rise
My joy when trials are abounding
Your faithfulness, my refuge in the night.

O Lord, my rock and my redeemer
Gracious Saviour of my ruined life
My guilt and cross laid on Your shoulders
In my place You suffered bled and died
You rose, the grave and death are conquered
You broke my bonds of sin and shame.

You rose, the grave and death are conquered
You broke my bonds of sin and shame.


O Lord, my rock and my redeemer
May all my days bring glory to Your name
May all my days bring glory to Your name.

Sunday 17th May

Do join us for our lockdown service tomorrow (link available from tomorrow morning), and virtual coffee on Zoom at 11:30 (link also published here tomorrow). This week we welcome Ramsay as our guest preacher, and in preparation for our worship here are the words you will need:

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be

Great is Thy faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside

The Steadfast Love of the Lord never ceases

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases

His mercies never come to an end

They are new every morning, new every morning,

Great is Thy faithfulness, O Lord

Great is Thy faithfulness.

ALL HEAVEN DECLARES

All Heaven declares the glory of the risen Lord.
Who can compare with the beauty of the Lord?
Forever You will be the Lamb upon the throne.
I gladly bow the knee and worship You alone.

I will proclaim the glory of the risen Lord.
Who once was slain to reconcile man to God.
Forever You will be the Lamb upon the throne.
I gladly bow the knee and worship You alone

Songs for Sunday 10th May 2020

Denise has recorded three songs for our online service tomorrow. The words are as follows, if you would like to join in:

IN CHRIST ALONE

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my all in all,

here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! – who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe.
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

IS HE WORTHY?

Do you feel the world is broken?  (We do)
Do you feel the shadows deepen?  (We do)
But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through?  (We do)
Do you wish that you could see it all made new?  (We do)

Is all creation groaning?  (It is)
Is a new creation coming?  (It is)
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst?  (It is)
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?  (It is)

Is anyone worthy?  Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honour and glory
Is He worthy of this?
He is

Does the Father truly love us?  (He does)
Does the Spirit move among us?  (He does)
And does Jesus, our Messiah hold forever those He loves?  (He does)
Does our God intend to dwell again with us?  (He does)

Is anyone worthy?  Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honour and glory
Is He worthy of this?
He is

He is

TO GOD BE THE GLORY

To God be the glory! Great things He has done!
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son;
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life-gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Let the people rejoice!
Come to the Father, through Jesus the Son:
Give Him the glory! Great things He has done!

O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood!
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be;
Our wonder, our rapture, when Jesus we see.
