If you have a pram, there are aisles beside the walls where you can park your pram, if that helps. Also, there is more pram space at the back of the church where there is a wider gap. Children do not disturb us, and we are very happy for you to explain to your children what is happening during the service. We stand to sing. In the Order of Service it will say other places WHERE WE STAND UP, if you are able. HYMNS are numbered and found in the red hymn book Together in Song, or printed in the Order of Service. If the LORD S SUPPER (communion) is being celebrated, (there will be a white cloth on the communion table) everyone of every age and background is welcome to share in the supper with us. We serve bread (and gluten free bread is available if you indicate to the server) and grape juice. TEXT IN BOLD is to be said by the congregation.

Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen. 13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, Who are these, robed in white, and where have they come from? 14 I said to him, Sir, you are the one that knows. Then he said to me, These are they who have come out of the great ordeal; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 For this reason they are before the throne of God, and worship him day and night within his temple, and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter them. 16 They will hunger no more, and thirst no more; the sun will not strike them, nor any scorching heat; 17 for the Lamb at the centre of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of the water of life, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.!8 We stand to sing: (sung twice) Behold, behold, I make all things new Behold, behold, I make all things new beginning with you and starting from today. Behold, behold, I make all things new, my promise is true for I am Christ the way. John L Bell (Iona Community) The Gospel reading is from John 13: When he had gone out, Jesus said, Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him. 32 If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once. 33 Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, Where I am going, you cannot come. 34 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. In this is the word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.!9 Anthem (Psalm for Easter 5) Cantate Domine Text: Psalm 148:1-2 Music: Giuseppe Pitoni ( ) Cantate Domino canticum novum, laus ejus in ecclesia sanctorum.
