Welcome to worship. Together we seek to honour God in our worship. We sing, we pray, we encounter stories of grace from the bible. We support one another and make a difference in our world.

“People who love to eat are the best people”
Julia Child.

“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish. But what are they among so many people?”
John 6:9

Entry of the Written Word

Call to Worship (Psalm 145 verses 13–18)

One: Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations
All: The Lord is faithful in words, and gracious in deeds.
One: The Lord upholds all who are falling, and raises up all who are bowed down.
All: The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.
One: You open your hand, satisfying the desire of every living thing.
All: The Lord is just, and kind. The Lord is near to all who call, to all who call in truth.
