SoF 1041

‘Because of You’

To sing before the service begins.


There’s a place where the streets shineWith the glory of the Lamb.There’s a way, we can go there,We can live there beyond time.Because of You, Because of You,Because of Your love,Because of Your blood.


All our sins are washed away,And we can live forever,Now we have this hope,Because of You.Oh, we’ll see You face to face,And we will dance togetherIn the city of our God,Because of You.


No more pain, no more sadness,

No more suffering, no more tears.

No more sin, no more sickness

No injustice, no more death.

Because of You, because of You,

Because of Your love,

Because of Your blood.


All our sins are washed away,And we can live forever,Now we have this hope,Because of You.Oh, we’ll see You face to face,And we will dance togetherIn the city of our God,Because of You.


There is joy everlasting,There is gladness, there is peace.There is wine ever flowing,There’s a wedding, there’s a feast.

Because of You, because of You,Because of Your love,Because of Your blood.


All our sins are washed away,And we can live forever,Now we have this hope,Because of You.Oh, we’ll see You face to face,And we will dance togetherIn the city of our God,Because of You.

L: The psalmist writes ’Because God’s love is better than life, my lips will glorify Him …’

R: I will praise him as long as I live and I will lift up my hands in his name.


L: Jesus said, ‘I am the light of the world.’

R: He has come so that we may never walk in darkness but may have the light of life.


L: Jesus said, ‘No one can see the kingdom of God until they are born again.’

R: We gather to be born-again, to be renewed, to be made whole.


L: Spirit of God, be present with us as we join in worship.

R: Soothe our troubled hearts. Challenge our confused thinking. Compel us to respond to your call.

Matthew 5:18 & John 8:12


Light of the world.

‘Worship’ = Hands/prayer.

‘Bow down’ = bow head.

‘Say’ = hand to mouth.

‘God’ = point to ceiling.

‘Cross’ = Arms out wide.

Light of the World


LIGHT OF THE WORLD, You stepped down into darkness,Opened my eyes, let me seeBeauty that made this heart adore You,Hope of a life spent with You.


So here I am to worship,Here I am to bow down,Here I  am to say that You’re my God;And You’re altogether lovely,Altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me.


King of all days,Oh so highly exalted,Glorious in heaven above;Humbly You cameTo the earth You created, All for love’s sake became poor.


So here I am to worship,Here I am to bow down,Here I  am to say that You’re my God;And You’re altogether lovely,Altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me.


And I’ll never know how much it costTo see my sin upon that cross.(Repeat)


Prayers of Confession & The Lord’s Prayer

My Jesus, My Saviour


MY JESUS, MY SAVIOUR,Lord, there is none like You.All of my days I want to praiseThe wonders of Your mighty love.My comfort, my shelter,Tower of refuge and strength,Let every breath, all that I am,Never cease to worship You.


Shout to the Lord all the earth, let us singPower and majesty, praise to the King.Mountains bow downAnd the seas will roarAt the sound of Your name.I sing for joy at the work of Your hands.Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand.Nothing compares to thePromise I have in You.


John 3:1-21

You must be born again


What is it to be born again?


How can I be born-again?


What makes the difference between life and death?


What are our hopes for Rebecca as she lives as a disciple?


The story of the Stiffkey Rector!


Discipleship is supposed to be an ‘adventure’ not ‘death by misadventure’!

Love Divine


Love divine, all loves excelling,Joy of heaven to earth come down;Fix in us thy humble dwelling;All thy faithful mercies crown!Jesus, Thou art all compassion,Pure unbounded love Thou art;Visit us with Thy salvation;Enter every trembling heart.


Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit,Into every troubled breast!Let us all in Thee inherit;Let us find that second rest.Take away our bent to sinning;Alpha and Omega be;End of faith, as its Beginning,Set our hearts at liberty.


Come, Almighty to deliver,Let us all Thy life receive;Suddenly return and never,Never more Thy temples leave.Thee we would be always blessing,Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,Pray and praise Thee without ceasing,Glory in Thy perfect love.


Finish, then, Thy new creation;Pure and spotless let us be.Let us see Thy great salvationPerfectly restored in Thee;Changed from glory into glory,Till in heaven we take our place,Till we cast our crowns before Thee,Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

…He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again, he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father,and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.


L: Do you believe and trust in God the Holy Spirit?
