Amazing grace how sweet the sound. That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now I'm found. Was blind but now I see

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved;

How precious did that grace appear, The hour I first believed!

My chains are gone, I've been set free. My God, My Saviour has ransomed me.

And like a flood his mercy reigns. Un-ending love, amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures;

He will my shield and portion be, As long as life endures.


The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, The sun forbear to shine; But God, who call’d me here below, Will be forever mine.

OVER ALL THE EARTH, You reign on high, Every mountain stream,

Every sunset sky. But my one request, Lord, my only aim

Is that You’d reign in me again.

Lord, reign in me, Reign in Your power; Over all my dreams, In my darkest hour.

You are the Lord of all I am, So won’t You reign in me again?

Over every thought, Over every word, May my life reflect the beauty of my Lord;

‘Cause You mean more to me, Than any earthly thing, So won’t You reign in me again?

Christ is my reward And all my devotion, Now there's nothing in this world

That could ever satisfy, Through every trial, My soul will sing, No turning back,

I've been set free.

Chorus -Christ is enough for me, Christ is enough for me , Everything I need is in You

Everything I need

Christ my all in all My joy and my salvation, And this hope will never fail

Heaven is our home, Through every storm, My soul will sing, Jesus is here

To God be the glory


I have decided to follow Jesus, No turning back no turning back

I have decided to follow Jesus. No turning back no turning back

The cross before me, the world behind me, No turning back no turning back

The cross before me, the world behind me, No turning back no turning back


ALL I ONCE HELD DEAR, built my life upon, All this world reveres, and wars to own,

All I once thought gain I have counted loss; Spent and worthless now, compared to this.

Knowing You, Jesus, Knowing You, there is no greater thing.

You’re my all, You’re the best, You’re my joy, my righteousness, And I love You, Lord.

Now my heart’s desire is to know You more, To be found in You and known as Yours.

To possess by faith what I could not earn, All-surpassing gift of righteousness.


Oh, to know the power of Your risen life, And to know You in Your sufferings.

To become like You in Your death, my Lord, So with You to live and never die. Chorus



Oh Lord, enable us to hear your message to us today through the gift of Anne's sermon. Amen

You call me out upon the waters The great unknown where feet may fail And there I find You in the mystery In oceans deep my faith will stand

And I will call upon Your Name And keep my eyes above the waves When oceans rise My soul will rest in Your embrace For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters Your sovereign hand will be my guide Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me You've never failed and You won't start now


Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would call me Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander And my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Saviour


What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer, There is no more for heaven now to give He is my joy my righteousness and freedom, My steadfast love my deep and boundless peace To this I hold my hope is only Jesus For my life is wholly bound to his Oh how strange and divine I can sing all is mine Yet not I but through Christ in me

The night is dark but I am not forsaken, For by my side the Saviour he will stay I labour on in weakness and rejoicing, For in my need his power is displayed To this I hold my Shepherd will defend me Through the deepest valley he will lead Oh the night has been won and I shall overcome Yet not I but through Christ in me

No fate I dread I know I am forgiven The future sure the price it has been paid For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon And he was raised to overthrow the grave To this I hold my sin has been defeated Jesus now and ever is my plea Oh the chains are released I can sing I am free Yet not I but through Christ in me

With every breath I long to follow Jesus For he has said that he will bring me home And day by day I know he will renew me Until I stand with joy before the throne To this I hold my hope is only Jesus All the glory evermore to him When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat, Yet not I but through Christ in me

Small group questions

Read Acts 21:1-26

1) Paul knew he had to go to Jerusalem but what were the pros & cons for him doing this?

2) Is there a Christian (living or dead) that inspires you because of their perseverance and faith over time?

3) How do you think that we can get better at hearing God's voice - either individually or as a church?

4) Please pray for each other in their specific role in their job, family or church family.
