LITURGY

COMMITMENT READING

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:

“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”

All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshipped God, saying:

“Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honour and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”

(Revelation 7:9-12)

 MUSIC

  • Revelation Song (Kari Jobe): A song of praise that sings of the glory and majesty of Christ and looks forward to the day where we will be with him for all of eternity.

  • It is Well:  A hymn that sings of the peace we can know and the security of our salvation through faith in Jesus.

MICAH 3

SERMON

This week Alex Passmore will be preaching from God’s word to us from Micah 3.

LITURGY

COMMITMENT READING

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.

He was in the form of God, but did not count equality with God something to be grasped. He emptied himself, taking on the form of a servant and humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

(Based on Philippians 2:3-8)

MUSIC

  • This is Amazing Grace (Phil Wickham): A song of praise that sings of the character of God and the wonder of grace that is ours in Christ Jesus.

  • The Lion and the Lamb (Bethel Music):  A celebration of our saviour Jesus who comes to rule and reign with justice. The Lion of Judah and the lamb who was slain on our behalf.

MICAH - Chapter 1

SERMON

This week we are starting our new summer series in the book of Micah. Tom Ingleby will be opening up the series for us and preaching from Micah 1.

LITURGY

COMMITMENT READING

Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all our sins and heals all our diseases, who redeems us from the pit and crowns us with love and compassion.

He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

(Based on Psalm 103:1-12)

MUSIC

  • Behold our God (Sovereign Grace): A song that calls us to draw our attention and fix our eyes on the majesty of God. A reminder that he is glorious and worthy of all of our praise.

  • Lamb of God (Vertical Worship): A reflection on Jesus as the lamb of God, whose blood was shed on our behalf and who stands in our place to take the judgement of God.

ROMANS - Groaning & Glory

SERMON

Gary Aston will be preaching to us from Romans 8:18-30 this Sunday as we think about the groaning we can experience as we feel the effects of sin and the glory that is ours in Christ.

LITURGY

COMMITMENT READING

Brothers and sisters, let us not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

So let us fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

(2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

MUSIC

  • O God of Mercy Hear Our Plea (Sovereign Grace): A song that pleads with God to hear our prayers as we join in creations groaning for Jesus to return.

  • How Great Thou Art: A hymn that sings of the glory of God seen in his creation.
