Opening Hymn - Christ is Made the Sure Foundation
I am the way, the truth and the life, says the Lord; no one comes to the Father except through me.
whose way is love, whose truth is searching,
whose life is freely given in Jesus Christ our Lord:
as you have opened for us your house of many rooms,
so may we make a place for the rejected and unloved,
and share the work of peace;
through Jesus Christ, the image of God. Amen
Acts 7:55-60, Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16, 1 Peter 2:2-10 and John 14:1-14

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
Glory to God, whose power, working in us,
can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.
Glory to God from generation to generation,
in the church and in Christ Jesus,
For ever and ever. Amen
May the Peace of God which soars beyond all understanding
Keep our hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God,
And of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
And May the blessing of God almighty,
the Creator, the Redeemer and the Sanctifier
be with us, our loved ones and our homes this day and always. Amen
Closing Hymn - Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee
