Service Review: 2nd October

Today Rev Hilary Howarth took our morning worship which included Holy Communion and the Reception of New Members.

"God cares for all the children of the world " was the cheery action hymn sung by our younger children . This was followed by each of the teenagers being presented with their new personalised hoodie. On the back of each one was printed the Church logo , New Youth , and the Church website. Their initials are on the front.

Sheila Nelson lead our opening prayers.

The hymns we enjoyed were chosen by our new Church Members , and the first of these was Shine Jesus shine.

Reception into Membership.

Rev Hilary took us into this part of the service and welcomed Alison, Jenny and Louise , their memberships were being transferred from other churches . A further service will be held at a later date for others who were not able to be with us today.

Hymn 3 was The Lord s my Shepherd ( the version by Stuart Townsend ) after which Brian read from Matthew ch 6 v v 25 -33. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God.

Rev Hilary then developed this passage in a very relevant and understandable way , talking about our human desires for goods , many of which lose their importance over time.

We need to focus our priorities in life finding time in our daily lives for the things that really do matter - the things of God.

The passage from Matthew 6 shows how relevant are the words of Jesus today, as he talked about Food, Fashion, Finance and Future.

Jesus says " Seek ye first the Kingdom of God , and His righteousness , and all these things shall be added unto you " . Not easy when set against the needs of family, friends, work etc. Nevertheless, put your trust in God and put Him first. After a minute of silence we were asked to consider:

  • Do you need a re-evaluation in your life ?
  • Do you need to examine your priorities ?
  • Does your relationship with God , through Jesus take first place ?

We then sang " Seek ye first the Kingdom of God " followed by prayers lead by Alison Critchley. The service of Holy Communion followed, and the service ended with the hymn "How great Thou art"and the blessing.
