Introduction & Call to Worship


Psalm 117

Hymn STF 30 Jesus Stand Among Us

  1. Jesus, stand among us at the meeting of our lives,
    be our sweet agreement at the meeting of our eyes.
    O Jesus, we love you, so we gather here,
    join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.
  2. So to you we're gathering out of each and ev'ry land,
    Christ the love between us at the joining of our hands.
    O Jesus, we love you, so we gather here,
    join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.
  3. Jesus, stand among us at the breaking of the bread;
    join us as one body as we worship you, our Head.
    O Jesus, we love you, so we gather here,
    join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

Hymn STF 517 Eternal Father Strong To Save - Emmanuel Singers



  1. Eternal Father, strong to save, whose arm doth bind the restless wave,
    who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep its own appointed limits keep:
    O hear us when we cry to thee for those in peril on the sea.
  2. O Saviour, whose almighty word the winds and waves submissive heard,
    who walked upon the foaming deep, and calm amid its rage didst sleep:
    O hear us when we cry to thee for those in peril on the sea.
  3. O sacred Spirit, who didst brood upon the chaos dark and rude,
    who made its angry tumult cease, and gavest light and life and peace:
    O hear us when we cry to thee for those in peril on the sea.
  4. O Trinity of love and power, shield all who sail in danger's hour;
    from rock and tempest, fire and foe, protect them wheresoe'er they go:
    and ever let there rise to thee glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
  5. William Whiting (1825-1878) Reproduced from Singing the Faith Electronic Words Edition, number 517

Hymn STF 495 Dear Lord And Father Of Mankind - Emmanuel Singers


  1. Dear Lord and Father of mankind forgive our foolish ways;
    reclothe us in our rightful mind; in purer lives thy service find,
    in deeper reverence, praise. In deeper reverence praise
  2. In simple trust like theirs who heard beside the Syrian sea
    the gracious calling of the Lord, let us, like them, without a word
    rise up and follow thee. Rise up and follow thee.
  3. O Sabbath rest by Galilee! O calm of hills above,
    where Jesus knelt to share with thee the silence of eternity,
    interpreted by love! Interpreted by love!
  4. With that deep hush subduing all our words and works that drown
    the tender whisper of thy call, as noiseless let thy blessing fall
    as fell thy manna down. As fell thy manna down
  5. Drop thy still dews of quietness, till all our strivings cease;
    take from our souls the strain and stress, and let our ordered lives confess
    the beauty of thy peace. The beauty of thy peace
  6. Breathe through the heats of our desire thy coolness and thy balm;
    let sense be dumb, let flesh retire; speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
    O still small voice of calm! O still small voice of calm!
  7. John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892) Reproduced from Singing the Faith Electronic Words Edition, number 495.

Prayers of Intercession - Rev Ian Ring

Lord in your mercy Hear our prayer

Hymn STF 407 Hear The Call Of The Kingdom - used 1 Sept 2019

  1. Hear the call of the kingdom, lift your eyes to the King;
    let his song rise within you as a fragrant offering
    of how God, rich in mercy, came in Christ to redeem
    all who trust in his unfailing grace.
  2. Hear the call of the kingdom to be children of light
    with the mercy of heaven, the humility of Christ;
    walking justly before him, loving all that is right,
    that the life of Christ may shine through us.
    King of heaven, we will answer the call. We will follow, bringing hope to the world,
    filled with passion, filled with power to proclaim salvation in Jesus' name.
  3. Hear the call of the kingdom to reach out to the lost
    with the Father's compassion in the wonder of the cross,
    bringing peace and forgiveness, and a hope yet to come:
    let the nations put their trust in him.
    King of heaven, we will answer the call. We will follow, bringing hope to the world,
    filled with passion, filled with power to proclaim salvation in Jesus' name.
