*** Rocks now go to their room – leading today is Pam ***


Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “If you love me, keep my commandments; happy are those who hear the word of God and keep it.”  Hear then these commandments which God has given to his people, and take them to heart.

I am the Lord your God; you shall have no other gods but me.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.  Amen.  Lord have mercy.

You shall not make for yourself any idol.
God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth. 
Amen.  Lord have mercy.

You shall not dishonour the name of the Lord your God. 
You shall worship him with awe and reverence.  Amen.  Lord have mercy.

Remember the Lord’s day and keep it holy. 
Christ is risen from the dead: set your mind on things that are above, not on things that are on the earth.  Amen.  Lord have mercy.

Honour your father and mother. 
Live as servants of God; honour all people; love each other.  Amen.  Lord have mercy.

You shall not commit murder. 
Be reconciled to each other; overcome evil with good.  Amen.  Lord have mercy.

You shall not commit adultery. 
Know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.  Lord have mercy.

You shall not steal.  Be honest in all that you do and care for those in need.
Amen.  Lord have mercy.

You shall not be a false witness.  Let everyone speak the truth.  Amen.  Lord have mercy.

You shall not covet anything which belongs to your neighbour.
Remember the words of the Lord Jesus: It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Love your neighbour as yourself, for love is the fulfilling of the law. 
Amen.  Lord have mercy.

Lord, have mercy on us, and write all these your laws in our hearts.

KYRIE (page 4)




Most merciful God,
who by the death and resurrection of our Son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved the world:
grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross
we may triumph in the power of his victory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, now and for ever.  Amen.

COMMUNION HYMN   234               I need thee ev’ry hour


Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us
that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters
we do also for you:
give us the will to be the servant of others
as you were the servant of all,
and gave up your life and died for us,
but are alive and reign, now and for ever.  Amen.

In church


We would like to try out a sort of ‘mentoring’ system for our young people.  What we need are willing adults volunteering to have a young person come and sit with them, either when they come in from Rocks, or during the All Age Services.  What is expected of you?  Help your ‘charge’ engage in and follow the service.  [Note the very helpful guide to Holy Communion on the book rack in the porch.]  We hope this will not only enable all ages to get more out of the services, but also allow better interaction between the ages in our congregation.  If you are interested, please speak to Sarah. 

If you have any photos of Parish/Church life, send them to Paul or Sarah via email and they will be posted on the parish blog site.

Vocations Day – 20th April; please see flyers at back of church.

God promised a safe landing –
not smooth sailing.
