Singing:  VU #396  Jesus, Stand Among Us

  1. Jesus, stand among us

in your risen power;

let this time of worship

be a hallowed hour.

  1. Breathe the Holy Spirit

into every heart;

bid the fears and sorrows

from each soul depart.

  1. Lead our hearts to wisdom

till our doubting cease,

and to all assembled

speak your word of peace.

Welcome and Community News


Song:  VU #183  We Meet You, O Christ (vs. 1,2 and 4)

  1. We meet you, O Christ, in many a guise;

your image we see in simple and wise.

You live in a palace, exist in a shack.

We see you, the gardener, a tree on your back.

  1. In millions alive, away and abroad;

involved in our life you live down the road.

Imprisoned in systems you long to be free.

We see you, O Jesus, still bearing your tree.

  1. You choose to be made at one with the earth;

The dark of the grave prepares for your birth.

Your death is your rising, creative your word:

The tree springs to life and our hope is restored.


Scripture:  John 20: 19-23

Song: VU #185 You Tell Me That the Lord is Risen (Vs. 1, 3 and 4)

  1. You tell me that the Lord is risen,

That you have seen his face.

Then tell me why you crouch in fear

And hide within this place.

You say that he spoke words of peace

And stood just as before.

But ‘til I touch his very flesh

I will not trust your joy.

  1. “Now peace be with you. Come, my friend,

My wounded body see.

Let the rich courage of your doubt

bring you to fresh belief.

Fear not to wonder at the Word,

to search the depths of grace.

Reach out and touch, here is my hand.

Receive the gift of faith.”

  1. “How blest are they, how fortunate

Who know without the sight.

But Thomas, you are favoured too,

For searching yields its light.”

So may each pilgrim in the Way,

Each road to Christ be blest,

‘til lips declare, “My Lord and God!”,

Christ’s body one at last.

Song: VU #166 Joy Comes with the Dawn


Joy comes with the dawn;

Joy comes with the morning sun;

Joy springs from the tomb

And scatters the night with her song,

Joy comes with the dawn.

  1. Weeping may come;

Weeping may come in the night,

When dark shadows cloud our sight. R

  1. Sorrow will turn,

Sorrow will turn into song

and God’s laughter make us strong. R

  1. We will rejoice,

We will rejoice, and give praise,

To the One who brings us grace. R


Thank You

Singing: MV#212 Sent Out in Jesus’ Name

Sent out in Jesus’ name, Our hands are ready now

To make the world a place In which the kingdom comes.

The angels cannot change A world of hurt and pain

Into a world of love, Of justice and of peace.

The task is ours to do,To set it really free.

O help us to obey, And carry out your will.
