BAPTISM

SERMON

LITURGY

CALL TO WORSHIP

Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture.

(Psalm 95:1-7)

ROMANS - Recap

SERMON

This Sunday we are back in our sermon series in the book of Romans. Gary Aston will be preaching to us from selected texts as we recap the series so far.

LITURGY

CONFESSION & ASSURANCE

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous.

He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin.

We are made right with God through faith in Jesus Christ and we are justified by his gift of grace.

(Based on Romans 3:22-26)

MUSIC

  • Come Ye Sinners (Sojourn Music): A song that sings of the invite Jesus gives us to come to him in our sin where we find salvation and rest.

  • A God Who Saves (Sovereign Grace): A song that reminds us that whilst we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

IMPACT - The Call to Impact

SERMON

This Sunday we will be continuing to look at the IMPACT part of our vision. Tom Thrower will be preaching to us as from Isaiah 58 as we look at the call to impact.

LITURGY

CALL TO WORSHIP

The LORD is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and filled with unfailing love. The LORD is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.

The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does. The LORD upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.

My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.

(Psalm 145:8-14)

MUSIC

  • In Tenderness He Sought Me (Citizens): A song that reminds us of the love and grace that has been poured into our hearts in Jesus and his blood that has redeemed us.

  • There is a Fountain: A song that reflects on the lengths Jesus was willing to go to save us from our sin, the blood that was shed on our behalf.
