Welcome and Announcements

Call to Worship

Hymn CMP 1286 Hope is here

1        Hope is here, shout the news to everyone,

it’s a new day, peace has come: Jesus saves.

Mercy triumphs at the cross,

love has come to rescue us: Jesus saves.

Hope is here, what a joyful noise we’ll make,

as we join with heaven’s song

to let all the world know that Jesus saves.

Raise a shout to let all the world know that Jesus saves.

2        Free at last, every debt has been repaid,

broken hearts can be remade: Jesus saves.

Sing above the storms of life,

sing it through the darkest night: Jesus saves.

Free at last, what a joyful noise we’ll make,

as we join with heaven’s song

to let all the world know that Jesus saves.

Raise a shout to let all the world know that Jesus saves.

Sing it out, to let all the world know that Jesus saves.

Raise a shout to let all the world know that Jesus saves.

You save, You heal, restore, reveal

Your Father’s heart to us.

You rose to raise us from the grave; Your Spirit lives in us.

Sing it out . . .      Sing it out . . .      . . .Jesus saves.

Nick Herbert and Tim Hughes.

Summer Holiday Club: This year’s Summer Holiday Club will be on Tuesday 1 & Wednesday 2 August. It will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm. This has been a very successful format in the club’s we have run before. What we need is people to volunteer as a leader. Please think about it. If you do not have a PVG, we will have to start the process now. Without your help we cannot run the club, and it is a lot of fun both for the kids and the helpers. Please speak to Karen Hamilton for more information.

Exploring Faith? Thinking about joining church? If you have started attending church recently and would like to know more about Christianity, please get in touch with our minister, Peter. He hopes to get a few people together to explore the Christian faith and whether they would like to become members of the church. It would also be nice to have a few people who are already members to come along to encourage the new folk! Contact Peter at 0141 586 2126 or ku.gro.dnaltocsfohcruhcnull@omminp.
