Covenant Services can be, well let’s be honest, a tad boring and ‘wordy’ but not this Sunday, Hilary always gives us a cracking service and this one was no different.

The service was delivered in a serious but fun way, where we could confirm by our own Covenant (promise) to God as we were reminded of Gods promise to us that has remained the same throughout the centuries, He is ours and we are His.

The service began by singing the hymn ‘From the breaking of the dawn’ which is number 156 in the hymn books, then Hilary explained to us what the covenant service is all about, telling us that the covenant service is pretty much the same today as when John Wesley wrote the first one and why it still matters as much today as it did then.

We had readings from Dennis Hobson and Doreen Hobson, Exodus 24:3-11, Jeremiah 31:31-34 and romans 12:1-2 followed by hymn 544: ’When a deer pants for the water’. Hilary then gave a sermon titled ‘I am no longer my own but yours’ which is found on-line and is well worth the trouble to find and read so I won’t spoil it for you by going through it here!

We welcomed some new members to the Triangle at this point and most welcome they are and I’m sure we will help them to find their feet and answer any questions they may have. Following this we had the offering to the sound of ‘I am no longer my own’ by Cheri Keaggy.

Then we had the actual moment of making our covenant which if you would like to read it through again it is found on page 285 of the worship book, please feel free to read it the books are in the foyer. The hymn ‘Covenant of grace’ was then sung. The intercessions were read by Denis Kirkham and can also be read again if you would like to, they are on page 290 of the worship book. We then shared to Peace with each other, a moving part of any service but especially so when made during the covenant service.

We then had communion followed by the hymn 563: ‘O Jesus I have promised’ and the benediction, a moving end to an important service.
