    8:00am Holy Communion

    10:30am Family Communion*

    The Order of Service is contained in the separate Service Book.

    Opening Hymn*

    1. Let us build a house where love can dwell

    and all can safely live, a place where saints and children tell

    how hearts learn to forgive. Built of hopes and dreams and visions,

    rock of faith and vault of grace; here the love of Christ shall end divisions:

    All are welcome, all are welcome

    all are welcome in this place

    2. Let us build a house where prophets speak and words are strong and true,

    where all Gods children dare to seek to dream Gods reign anew. Here the cross shall stand as witness and as symbol of Gods grace; here as one we claim the faith of Jesus.

    3. Let us build a house where love is found

    in water, wine and wheat: a banquet hall on holy ground

    where peace and justice meet. Here the love of God, through Jesus,

    is revealed in time and space; as we share in Christ the feast that frees us

    4. Let us build a house where hands will reach

    beyond the wood and stone to heal and strengthen, serve and teach,

    and live the Word theyve known. Here the outcast and the stranger

    bear the image of Gods face; let us bring an end to fear and danger:

    5. Let us build a house where all are named their songs and visions heard

    and loved and treasured, taught and claimed, as words within the Word.

    Build of tears and cries and laughter, prayers of faith and songs of grace,

    let this house proclaim from floor to rafter

    Words & Music: Marty Haugen (b 1950) 1994 GIA Publications Inc

    (Ancient & Modern 365)


    Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ have overcome death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life:

    grant that, as by your grace going before us you put into our minds good desires,

    so by your continual help we may bring them to good effect; through Jesus Christ our risen Lord. Amen.

    First Reading Acts 7.55-60

    Standing before the high priest and the council, Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. Look, he said, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God! But they covered their ears, and with a loud shout all rushed together against him. Then

    they dragged him out of the city and began to stone him; and the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul. While they were stoning Stephen, he

    prayed, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. Then he knelt down and cried out in a loud voice, Lord, do not hold this sin against them. When he had said this, he died.

    Second Reading 1 Peter 2.2-10

    Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in Gods sight, and like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer

    spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it stands in scripture: See, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame. To you then who believe, he is precious; but for those who do not believe, The stone that the builders rejected has become the very head of the corner, and A stone that makes them stumble, and a rock that makes them fall. They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, Gods own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness

    into his marvellous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are Gods people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

    Gradual Hymn*

    For Im building a people of power and Im making a people of praise, that will move through this land by my Spirit, and will glorify my precious name.

    Build your church, Lord, make us strong, Lord,

    join our hearts, Lord, through your Son.

    Make us one, Lord, in your body, in the kingdom of your Son.

    Gospel John 14.1-14

    Jesus said: Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Fathers house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place

    where I am going. Thomas said to him, Lord, we dont know where you are going, so how can we know the way? Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him. Philip said, Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us. Jesus answered: Dont you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has

    seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, Show us the Father? Dont you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just

    my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I

    have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to

    the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

    Offertory Hymn*

    1. To God be the glory! great things he hath done;

    so loved he the world that he gave us his Son; who yielded his life an atonement for sin,

    and opened the life-gate that all may go in.

    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord! let the earth hear his voice; praise the Lord, praise the Lord! let the people rejoice:

    O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son, and give him the glory; great things he hath done.

    2. O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood! to every believer the promise of God; the vilest offender who truly believes

    that moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

    3. Great things he hath taught us, great things he hath done,

    and great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son; but purer, and higher, and greater will be our wonder, our rapture, when Jesus we see.

    Communion Hymns*

    1. There is a higher throne than all this world has known,

    where faithful ones from evry tongue will one day come.

    Before the Son well stand, made faultless through the Lamb;

    believing hearts find promised grace: salvation comes.

    Hear heavens voices sing, their thundrous anthem rings through emrald courts and sapphire skies,
