The service was led by Reverend Anne Cash. Our first hymn was “Father, we love you, we worship and adore you”.
After prayers of adoration and confession, Brian Smith (our Worship Leader) addressed the children. Today was Education Sunday and Homelessness Sunday. Next, our Praise Song was “Colours of the Day” and the children joined in enthusiastically with flag waving.
The children then left for their Junior Church classes.
The Scripture readings were Old Testament – Nehemiah 8 read by Iain Templeman, New Testament – Luke Chapter 4, verses 14-21 read by Glennys Astley.
There was then a short drama expounding on the New Testament reading of Jesus’ message in the temple at Nazareth. It took the form of an interview with Alison Critchley as the TV interviewer and Steve Maslivec as Jesus.
Our next hymn was “God has spoken by his prophets”. Details of Reverend Anne’s sermon can be found elsewhere on this website.
The penultimate hymn was “Come now you blessed, eat at my table”. The prayers of intercession were led by Joe Leighton. Our final hymn was “Community of Christ who made the cross your own”.
The service ended with a blessing by Reverend Anne.
