4 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.

5 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 feeds us; All are welcome, all are welcome, All are welcome in this place.

6 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. Built of tears and cries and laughter, Prayers of faith and songs of grace; Let this house proclaim from floor to rafter: All are welcome, all are welcome, All are welcome in this place..

9 “God will turn all these curses against your enemies, who hated you and oppressed you..” (verse 7) “… you will have to obey him and keep all his laws that are written in this book of his teachings. You will have to turn to him with all your heart. (verse 10) I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. [John 10:14-16] Now 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. [1 Cor 1:10]

12 “According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building on it. Each builder must choose with care how to build on it. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ.”

17 “The Northbridge Methodist Church was opened on 7 th May 1955 … The door was opened by Rev M K Gilmour and Miss Bessie Cooke sang Open the Gates of the Temple.” Open the gates of the Temple! Open the gates of the Temple, Strew palms on the conqueror’s way Open your hearts, O ye people, That Jesus may enter today Hark! From the sick and the dying, Forgetting their couches of pain, Voices, glad voices, with raptures Are swelling, are swelling, are swelling a glad refrain, Voices, glad voices, with rapture Are swelling a glad, a glad refrain. I know, I know, that my Redeemer liveth. Canst thou, my heart, canst thou lift up thy voice and sing: I know, I know, yes I know that my Redeemer liveth; And because He lives, and because He lives, Yes because He lives, I too, I too, I too shall live.

20 The church's one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord; she is his new creation, by water and the word: from heaven he came and sought her to be his holy bride; with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.

21 Elect from every nation, yet one o'er all the earth, her charter of salvation, one Lord, one faith, one birth; one holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food, and to one hope she presses, with every grace endued..

24 When I survey the wondrous cross on which the young Prince of Glory died, my richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride.

25 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, save in the cross of Christ, my God: all the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to his blood..

28 Kneels at the feet of his friends, silently washes their feet: master who acts as a slave to them. Yesu, fill us with your love, show us how to serve the neighbours we have from you.

29 Neighbours are rich men and poor, neighbours are black men and white, neighbours are nearby and far away. Yesu, fill us with your love, show us how to serve the neighbours we have from you..

34 O Father Everlasting Our prayers we raise to Thee; God bless the men and women Who serve across the sea, In Tari and in Mendi, Samoa and Fiji, In Tonga and New Guinea, Or whereso’er they be.

35 Guard them from every harm, Lord, And when dark fears assail, Teach them Thy love and power, Can never, never fail. ‘Mid toil and tribulations May they the footprints see Of Christ, their Lord and Master, Who died to set men free.

36 And we with hearts united, Whate’er our service be, Let all we do, dear Master, Be done as unto Thee. We go forth in Thy strength, Lord, Grant us Thy boundless grace, Till we behold Thy glory, And see Thee face to face..

37 Gospel Reading: John 15:1-8 [V Gomm] L:This is the Gospel of the Lord. P: Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

38 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. … Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. [John 15:1-4]

39 based Jesus our Future (by B Prewer)

40 L: We have been stupid again, God. We have let our faith be corroded by the worries of the world. P: We are more aware of fear than hope, more familiar with anxiety than serenity. L: We confess that this acidic unfaith even eats away at our church committees, councils and worship.. P: We worry, worry, worry about falling numbers and our declining influence in society.

41 L: We even worry about the possibility of the church becoming extinct. P: Then we become weary and irritable with one another. L:Lord, have mercy. P: Lord, have mercy. L:Christ, have mercy. P: Christ, have mercy.

42 L:Lord, have mercy. P: Lord, have mercy. L: Most loving and ever-faithful God, return us to the sanity of faith. Help us to let go of our worrying habits and stand empty in the presence of your abundant grace. P: Remind us that the church is yours, not ours. In its strength or in its weakness, keep us faithful to the gospel of Christ and alert to your Spirit's pulse.

43 L: If it is your will that aspects of the church that we have loved must die, let us embrace death gracefully. P: If it is your plan that a new church should be born, let us suffer the travail gratefully. L: Fill us with courage, a sense of humour and a quiet mind. P: For yours is the kingdom, power and glory of irrepressible love, today, tomorrow and forever. Amen.

P: We are a pilgrim people on the way to the promised goal.

52 L:On this way, we are called to live and work within the faith and unity of the one holy catholic and apostolic Church. P: In this unity, we offer our worship, witness and service and receive one another in love and joy. L:We are being led to the free obedience of the children of God, and so we look with yearning and hope to the final reconciliation of humanity with God, and the renewal of all creation. P: Alleluia. Amen.

54 Guide me, O thou great Redeemer, pilgrim through this barren land; I am weak, but thou art mighty; hold me with thy powerful hand; Bread of heaven, feed me now and evermore.

55 When I tread the verge of Jordan, bid my anxious fears subside; death of death, and hell’s destruction, land me safe on Canaan's side; songs of praises, I will ever give to thee..

56 Send me, Jesus; send me, Jesus; Send me, Jesus; send me, Lord. I will go, Lord; in your name, Lord, I will go.
