Palm Sunday Service - Sunday 5th April

We are looking forward to worshipping together at 10.30am even though we can't physically meet up together in the same building. 

We hope meeting in this way will help us to be reminded that we belong to one another, and that families will take the opportunity to worship together wherever they may be.

Please find below the service information, including song lyrics, alternatively click here for the service sheet.
If you have one, it would be good to have a Bible close to hand, for the reading which is Luke 22:63-23:25, or you can access the Bible reading online here.

Katy has also put together some questions and activities for families to do at home - see the details here.
Also here is a sermon notes sheet for kids (or adults) that you can download 



10.30am Sunday 5th April

Welcome and Introduction 

Opening Prayer
Almighty and everlasting God, who in your tender love towards the human race sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ to take upon him our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross: grant that we may follow the example of his patience and humility, and also be made partakers of his resurrection; 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 forever. Amen. 

Song: Praise is Rising
1.Praise is rising Eyes are turning to
You We turn to You Hope is stirring Hearts are yearning for You
We long for You 

'Cause when we see You We find strength to face the day
In Your presence All our fears are washed away (Washed away) 

Hosanna hosanna
You are the God who saves us
Worthy of all our praises
Hosanna hosanna
Come have Your way among us 
We welcome You here Lord Jesus 

2.Hear the sound of Hearts returning to You
We turn to You
In Your Kingdom Broken lives are made new
You make us new

Leader: This is how God shows his great love for us: While were still sinners, Christ died for us 
All: Almighty God, most merciful Father, we have sinned against you in thought, word and deed and in all the things we should have done but have not. For the sake of your Son, forgive us all that is in the past and help us to serve you in a renewed life to the glory of your name. Amen.

Song: I Stand Amazed

1.I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner condemned, unclean. 

How marvellous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvellous! How wonderful!
Is my Saviour’s love for me! 

2.For me it was in the garden,
He prayed: “Not my will, but Thine.”
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat-drops of blood for mine 


3.He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calv’ry,
And suffered, and died alone. 


4.When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
’Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me
