                        310         I heard the voice of Jesus say, come unto me and rest,

                       666         The Spirit lives to set us free, walk, walk in the light.

Introduction and Call to Worship

Today is often known as Passion Sunday and marks the beginning of the costly two weeks leading up to Easter. The focus is on the cost of discipleship.


Most merciful God, who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ delivered and saved the world: grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross we may triumph in the power of his victory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

Today’s Readings

First Reading Jeremiah 31:31-34

God is not finished with the disobedient people but makes a new start with them.

Second Reading Hebrews 5:5-10

Christ was given to humanity by God, so that through his prayers everyone could be restored to God’s company.

Gospel John 12:20-33

The struggle of Jesus as he sensed his life was in danger but would not run away is foretold by him as the struggle of all who remain true to God’s call.

Introduction to the Peace.

“I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” We are the people of God in this place and God will speak peace to all the world. The peace of the Lord…

Post Communion Prayer: 

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do also for you: give us the will to be the servant of others as you were the servant of all, and gave up your life and died for us, but are alive and reign, now and for ever. Amen.


May you know the deep, eternal love that suffuses our Gospel today, the love of a mother for her son, the love of a Messiah for his disciple, and God’s great love for you. And the blessing of God almighty…

Old Time Music Hall The church will be holding an Old Time Music hall on Saturday 26th May at Zurgena theatre.

Take this opportunity to let your hair down. I am also looking for people who have other talents that could be of use in some way. –Tony Noble

A thought for this Week.  God can definitely heal what is hurting you, but first you have to ask Him, and then you have to let Him.

A Prayer for this week. Lord please enlighten what’s dark in me, strengthen what’s weak in me, mend what’s broken in me, heal what’s sick in me and revive whatever peace and love has died in me. Amen.
