    10:30am Family Communion*

    The Order of Service is contained in the separate service booklet.

    We welcome Revd Canon Wim Zwalf as our preacher at 10:30am today.

    Opening Hymn*

    1. Come, let us join our cheerful songs

    with angels round the throne;

    ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

    but all their joys are one.

    2. Worthy the Lamc that died, they cry, to be exalted thus; Worthy the Lamb, our lips reply, for he was slain for us.

    3. Jesus is worthy to receive

    honour and power divine;

    and blessings, more than we can give,

    be, Lord, for ever thine.

    4. Let all that dwell above the sky,

    and air, and earth, and seas,

    conspire to lift thy glories high,

    and speak thine endless praise.

    5. The whole creation joins in one

    to bless the scared name

    of him that sits upon the throne,

    and to adore the Lamb.

    Words: From Revelation 5.11-13, Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

    Music: Nativity, Henry Lahee (1826-1912)

    (Ancient & Modern 362)


    Almighty God,

    whose Son revealed in signs and miracles

    the wonder of your saving presence:

    renew your people with your heavenly grace,

    and in all our weakness

    sustain us by your mighty power;

    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.

    Old Testament Reading Isaiah 9.1-4

    But there will be no gloom for those who were in anguish. In the former time he

    brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter

  • 4

    time he will make glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of

    the nations.

    The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;

    those who lived in a land of deep darkness on them light has shined. You have multiplied the nation, you have increased its joy;

    they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest,

    as people exult when dividing plunder.

    For the yoke of their burden, and the bar across their shoulders,

    the rod of their oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian.

    New Testament Reading 1 Corinthians 1.10-18

    I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of

    you be in agreement and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be

    united in the same mind and the same purpose. For it has been reported to me by

    Chloes people that there are quarrels among you, my brothers and sisters. What I mean is that each of you says, I belong to Paul, or I belong to Apollos, or I belong to Cephas, or I belong to Christ. Has Christ been divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of

    you except Crispus and Gaius, so that no one can say that you were baptized in my

    name. I did baptize also the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know

    whether I baptized anyone else. For Christ did not send me to baptize but to

    proclaim the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, so that the cross of Christ might

    not be emptied of its power.

    For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us

    who are being saved it is the power of God.

    Gradual Hymn*

    1. Jesus, hope of every nation,

    light of heaven upon our way;

    promise of the world's salvation,

    spring of life's eternal day!

    2. Saints by faith on God depending

    wait to see Messiah born;

    sin's oppressive night is ending

    in the glory of the dawn.

    3. Look, he comes! the long-awaited Christ, redeemer, living Word;

    hope and faith are vindicated

    as with joy we greet the Lord.

    4. Glory in the highest heaven

    to the Father, Spirit, Son;

    on the earth all praise be given

    to our God, the Three-in-One!

    Words: from Nunc Dimittism Luke 2, Michael Perry (1942-1996)

    Gospel Reading Matthew 4.12-23

    When Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. He left Nazareth

    and made his home in Capernaum by the lake, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali,

    so that what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:

    Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali, on the road by the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,

    and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned. From that time Jesus began to proclaim, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.

    As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and

    Andrew his brother, casting a net into the lake for they were fishermen. And he said to them, Follow me, and I will make you fish for people. Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of

    Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets,

    and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.

    Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good

    news of the kingdom and curing every disease and every sickness among the people.

    Offertory Hymn*

    1. Jesus, the name high over all

    in hell or earth or sky

    Angels and men before it fall

    and devils fear and fly

    Jesus, the name to sinners dear;

    the name to sinners givn. It scatters all their guilty fear

    and turns their hell to heaven

    O, that the world might taste and see

    the riches of His grace.

    The arms of love that compass me

    would all the world embrace.

    2. Jesus, the prisoner's fetters breaks

    and bruises satan's head.

    Power into strengthless souls it speaks,

    and life into the dead.

    Thee I shall constantly proclaim

    though earth and hell oppose;

    bold to confess Thy glorious Name

    before a world of foes

    3. His only righteouness I show;

    his saving truth proclaim.

    Tis all my business here below to cry behold the Lamb.

    Happy, if with my latest breath

    I may but gasp His name;

    preach Him to all, and cry in death:

    Behold, behold the Lamb!

    Happy, if with my latest breath

    I may but gasp His name;

    preach Him to all, and cry in death:

    Behold, behold the Lamb!

    Words: Charles Wesley (1707-1788)

    Communion Anthem*

    Lead me, Lord, lead me in thy righteousness,

    make they way plain before my face.

    For it is thou, Lord, thou, Lord, only,

    that makest me dwell in safety.

    Words: Psalms 5.8, 4.9

    Music: Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)

    Communion Hymn*

    1. Rock of ages, cleft for me,

    let me hide myself in thee;
