Call to Worship

To all who are imprisoned, God says, “Come out.
To all who are living in darkness, God says, “Show Yourselves”.
To all who hunger and thirst, God gives food and springs of water.
To all who are far away, God makes smooth the way home.
God will not forget us, we are inscribed on the palms of His hands.

Let all the world in every corner sing, “My God and King!”
The heavens are not too high, His praise may thither fly;
the earth is not too low, His praises there may grow.

Let all the world in every corner sing, “My God and King!”
Let all the world in every corner sing, “My God and King!”
The Church with Psalms must shout: no door can keep them out.

But, above all, the heart must bear the longest part.
Let all the world in ev’ery corner sing, “My God and King!”
Prayers of Approach and Confession

The Lord’s Prayer

Prayer of Illumination

Readings Isaiah 55 : 1 – 5
Matthew 14 : 13 – 21

Holy Wisdom, lamp of learning, bless the light that reason lends.
Teach us judgment as we kindle sparks of thought your Spirit sends.
Sanctify our search for knowledge and the truth that sets us free.
Come, illumine mind and spirit joined in deepest unity.

Vine of truth, in you we flourish; by your grace we learn and grow.
May the word of Christ among us shape our life, your will to know.
Joined to Christ in living, dying, may we help the Church convey
witness to the saving gospel, bearing fruit of faith today.

Sermon

Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us o’er the world’s tempestuous sea;
guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us, for we have no help but thee;
yet possessing every blessing, if our God our Father be.

Saviour, breathe forgiveness oer us: all our weakness thou dost know;
thou didst tread this earth before us, thou didst feel its keenest woe;
lone and dreary, faint and weary, through the desert thou didst go.

Spirit of our God, descending, fill our hearts with heavenly joy,
love with every passion blending, pleasure that can never cloy:
thus provided, pardoned, guided, nothing can our peace destroy.

Affirmation of Faith

We believe in God creator of all whose word sustains the life of humanity, and directs our history. God is our life.
We believe in God’s Son, born amongst the poor, light in our night,
first-born from the dead. He is alive.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who gives birth to the new life of God, who breathes life into the struggle for justice and leads us to hope, who is a living force.
We believe in the holy universal Church, herald of the Good News which frees people and brings new life.
We believe in the coming of a new world where Jesus Christ, our Lord, will be all in all. Amen.

Offering

Prayers of Intercession

The Kingdom of God is justice and joy;
for Jesus restores what sin would destroy.
God’s power and glory in Jesus we know
and here and hereafter the kingdom shall grow.

The kingdom of God is mercy and grace;
the captives are freed, the sinners find place,
the outcast are welcomed Gods banquet to share;
and hope is awakened in place of despair.

The kingdom of God is challenge and choice:
believe the good news, repent and rejoice!
His love for us sinners brought Christ to his cross:
our crisis of judgement for gain or for loss.

God’s kingdom is come, the gift and the goal;
in Jesus begun, in heaven made whole.
The heirs of the kingdom shall answer his call
and all things cry ‘Glory!’ to God all in all.

The Blessing
