As we come to worship: Hymn 714 The King is among us.

The King is among us

His Spirit is here

Let’s draw near and worship

Let songs fill the air.

 

He looks down upon us

Delight in His face

Enjoying His children’s love

Enthralled by our praise.

 

For each child is special

Accepted and loved

A love gift from Jesus

To His Father above

 

And now He is giving

His gifts to us all

For no-one is worthless

And each one is called.

 

The Spirit’s anointing

On all flesh comes down

And we shall be channels

For works like His own

 

We come now believing

Your promise of power

For we are you’re people

And this is your hour.

 

The King is among us

His Spirit is here

Let’s draw near and worship

Let songs fill the air.

 

Graham Kendrick  c.1981 Thankyou Music

 

 

Leader:   O Lord open our lips                               

All:        and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

 

Leader:   Give us the joy of your saving help

All:         and sustain us with your life-giving Spirit.

 

Leader:   O God, who calls all life into being,
All:        The earth, sea and sky are yours.

Leader:   Your presence is all around us,

All:        Your Spirit enlivens all who walk the earth,

              With her we yearn for justice to be done,

              For creation to be freed from bondage,

              For the hungry to be fed,

              For captives to be released,

              For your kingdom of peace to come on earth.

 

 

Confession                                                  

The Spirit of the Lord fills the world and knows every word and deed.

Let us then open ourselves to the Lord and confess our sin in penitence and faith.

 

              We have not always worshiped God, our creator.

All:        Lord, have mercy.

 

              We have not always followed Christ our Saviour.

All:        Christ, have mercy.

 

              We have not always trusted in the Spirit, our guide.

All:        Lord have mercy.

May the Father forgive us by the death of his Son and strengthen us to live in the power of the Spirit all our days.

All: Amen.

 

The Collect

 

              Holy Spirit, sent by the Father,

              ignite in us your holy fire;

              Strengthen your children with the gift of faith,

              Revive your church with the breath of love,

              And renew the face of the earth,

              Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

              Amen.

 

Readings:                                                                         sit for the reading

Ephesians 4:25-32  ©NIV

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbour, for we are all members of one body, “In your anger do not sin”. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving eachother, just as in Christ God forgave you.b

 

 

1 Corinthians 14:26-33a   © NIV

What then shall we say, Brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church. If anyone speaks in a tongue, two-or at most three- should speak, one at a time and someone must interpret. If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and God.

Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop. For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged. The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets. For God is not a God of disorder, but of peace.

 

              This is the word of the Lord.                    

All:               Thanks be to God.

                                                                                                                                       

Hymn 571 O Love that will not let me go.

O Love that will not let me go

I rest my weary soul in Thee

I give Thee back the life I owe

That in Thine ocean depths it’s flow

May richer, fuller be

 

O Light that follow’st all my way

I yield my flickering torch to Thee

My heart restores it’s borrowed ray

That in Thy sunshine’s blaze it’s day

May brighter, fairer be.

 

O Joy that seekest me through pain

I cannot close my heart to Thee

I trace the rainbow through the rain

And feel the promise is not vain

That morn shall tearless be.

 

O Cross that liftest up my head

I dare not ask to fly from Thee

I lay in dust life’s glory dead

And from the ground there blossoms red

Life that shall endless be.

George Matheson 1842-1906

 

Sermon

 

The Creed                                                                                                    We stand

 

Let us declare our faith in God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

All:       We believe in God the Father,
              from whom every family
              in heaven and on earth is named.

             We believe in God the Son,
             who lives in our hearts through faith,
             and fills us with his love.

             We believe in God the Holy Spirit,
             who strengthens us
             with power from on high.

             We believe in one God;
             Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
             Amen.

 

 

Prayers  (end with Lord’s Prayer)

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer together

              Our Father in heaven,

              Hallowed be your name,

              Your kingdom come,

              Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,

              Give us today our daily bread,

              Forgive us our sins,

              As we forgive those who sin against us,

              Save us in the time of trial

              And deliver us from evil,

              For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,

              now and forever. Amen.

 

 

The Power of Love                         The following responsory MAY be used

 

Leader:   Out of death came life

All:        and good defeated evil.

              An empty cross and an empty tomb,

              A nail mark shown and a presence known.

 

Leader:   Out of sorrow came joy,

All:        and God sent the Spirit:

Leader:   coming like fire to all people and all ages,

All:        coming to birth in the water of life.

 

Leader:   Out of difference came unity

All:        and God’s people were called:

Leader:   Called to receive him in bread and wine.

All:        Called to be free in the power of love.

 

Leader:   For when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,

              You will be filled with power

All:        and be witnesses for Christ to the ends of the earth.

             

Hymn 580 O Thou who camest from above

O Thou who camest from above

The pure celestial fire to impart

Kindle a flame of sacred love

On the mean altar of my heart.

 

There let it for Thy glory burn

With inextinguishable blaze

And trembling to it’s source return

In humble prayer and fervent praise.

 

Jesus, confirm my heart’s desire

To work and speak and think for Thee

Still let me guard the Holy Fire

And still stir up the gift in me.

 

Ready for all Thy perfect will

My acts of faith and love repeat

Till death Thy endless mercies seal

And make the sacrifice complete.

Charles Wesley 1707-178

 

Blessing:

              May Christ’s holy, healing, enabling Spirit be with you

             and guide you on your way at every change and turn;

              And the blessing of God almighty,

              The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

              Be with you and remain with you always, Amen.

 

All:        Filled with the Spirit’s power,

              We go in the light and peace of Christ.
