    8:00am Holy Communion

    10:30am Family Communion*

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

    Opening Hymn*

    1. Tell his praise in song and story,

    bless the Lord with heart and voice in my God is all my glory, come before him and rejoice.

    Join to praise his name together, he who hears his people's cry;

    tell his praise, come wind or weather, shining faces lifted high.

    2. To the Lord whose love has found them

    cry the poor in their distress; swift his angels camped around them

    prove him sure to save and bless. God it is who hears our crying

    though the spark of faith be dim taste and see! Beyond denying

    blessed are those who trust in him.

    3. Taste and see! In faith draw near him,

    trust the Lord with all your powers; seek and serve him, love and fear him, life and all its joys are ours -

    true delight in holy living, peace and plenty, length of days;

    come, my children, with thanksgiving bless the Lord in songs of praise.

    4. In our need he walks beside us,

    ears alert to every cry; watchful eyes to guard and guide us,

    love that whispers, It is I. Good shall triumph, wrong be righted,

    God has pledged his promised word; so with ransomed saints united

    join to praise our living Lord!

    The Collect

    Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain,

    and entered not into glory before he was crucified: mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross,

    may find it none other than the way of life and peace; 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.

    First Reading Isaiah 55.1-9

    The LORD says this: Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you that have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without

    price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labour for that which does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and

    delight yourselves in rich food. Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you may live. I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for

    David. See, I made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples. See, you shall call nations that you do not know, and nations that do not know you shall run to you, because of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel,

    for he has glorified you. Seek the LORD while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; 7let the wicked forsake their way, and the unrighteous their thoughts; let

    them return to the LORD, that he may have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways

    my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    Second Reading 1 Corinthians 10.1-13*

    I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all

    under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same

    spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ. Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them, and they

    were struck down in the wilderness. Now these things occurred as examples for us, so that we might not desire evil as they did. Do not become idolaters as some of

    them did; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and they rose up to play. We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. We must not put Christ to the test, as some of them did, and were destroyed by serpents. And do not complain as some of them

    did, and were destroyed by the destroyer. These things happened to them to serve

    as an example, and they were written down to instruct us, on whom the ends of the ages have come. So if you think you are standing, watch out that you do not fall. No

    testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing he will also

    provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.

    Gradual Hymn*

    1. As the deer pants for the water,

    so my soul longs after you. You alone are my hearts desire and I long to worship you.

    You alone are my strength, my shield, to you alone may my spirit yield.

    You alone are my hearts desire and I long to worship you.

    2. I want you more than gold or silver,

    only you can satisfy. You alone are the real joy-giver

    and the apple of my eye.

    3. Youre my Friend and youre my Brother, even though you are a king.

    I love you more than any other, so much more than anything.

    Words & Music: Martin J. Nystrom (b 1956) 1983 Restoration Music/Sovereign Music UK (Ancient Modern 592)

    Gospel Reading Luke 13.1-9

    There were some present who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had

    mingled with their sacrifices. He asked them, Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were worse sinners than all other Galileans? No, I tell you; but

    unless you repent, you will all perish as they did. Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them - do you think that they were worse offenders

    than all the others living in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish just as they did. Then he told this parable: A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and found none. So he said to the gardener, See here! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil? He replied, Sir, let it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and put manure on it. If it bears fruit next year, well

    and good; but if not, you can cut it down.

    Offertory Hymn*

    1. In Christ alone my hope is found,

    he is my light, my strength, my song; this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,

    firm through the fiercest drought and storm. What heights of love, what depths of peace,

    when fears are stilled, when strivings cease! My Comforter, my All in All,
