Old & New

On Sunday, 7th February we’re trying something a bit different … An experimental Zoom FIRST gathering.
Why, you say? Well we thought we would try an occasional fully live gathering on Zoom (to give us a different experience of worship AND to give video editors a break).  Eunice Attwood will be speaking on Luke 5:36-28.
We’ll be recording the LIVE Zoom worship and then premiering that video on FB Live and YouTube at 5:15.  If you’d like to join us on Zoom it is totally fine to leave your camera off and stay muted if that makes you more comfortable.  We’ll ask you what you thought afterwards to see if this experiment should be repeated!
If you’d rather not join the Zoom, you can watch the recording later at 5:15 on FB Live & YouTube (and comment in the chat as usual).
Welcome – Danielle
Song – Love So Great (Ali & Ellie)

Love So Great

Verse 1

Your love so great Jesus in all things
I’ve seen a glimpse of Your heart
A billion years still I’ll be singing
How can I praise You enough
How can I praise You enough

Chorus

You are the Lord Almighty
Outshining all the stars in glory
Your love is like the wildest ocean
Oh nothing else compares

Verse 2

Creation calls all to the Saviour
We are alive for Your praise
In earth and sky no one is higher
Our God of wonders You reign
Our God of wonders You reign

Bridge

Not to us but to Your Name
We lift up all praise
Not to us but to Your Name
We lift up all praise
(REPEAT)

Question for Sharing (everyone)

What is the best or most unusual NEW meal you have ever created with leftovers?  (Success or failure?)

Prayer (Everyone)

Scripture Reading: Luke 5:36-38

36 Then Jesus gave them this illustration: “No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and uses it to patch an old garment. For then the new garment would be ruined, and the new patch wouldn’t even match the old garment.

37 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins.38 New wine must be stored in new wineskins.

Reflection (10-15 minutes) – Old & New (Eunice)

Song – Beautiful Things (Ali & Ellie)

Beautiful Things

Verse 1

All this pain
I wonder if I’ll ever find my way
I wonder if my life could really change
At all

Verse 2

All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found
Could a garden come up from this ground
At all

Chorus

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

Verse 3

All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found
In You

Bridge

You make me new You are making me new
You make me new You are making me new
(REPEAT)

Love Feast (Danielle & Everyone)

Song – Who You Say I am (Ali & Ellie)

Who You Say I Am

Verse 1

Who am I that the highest King
Would welcome me
I was lost but He brought me in
Oh His love for me
Oh His love for me

Chorus 1

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

Verse 2

Free at last
He has ransomed me
His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin
Jesus died for me
Yes He died for me

Chorus 2

In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

Bridge

I am chosen not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me not against me
I am who You say I am

Tag

(Oh) (Yes) I am who You say I am

Mental Health Tip- Ellie

What’s Coming up (Danielle) *

Blessing: “May we live fully, love wastefully and have the courage to be all that God has created us to be.”

** We’ll END the Zoom and then re-open it for those who would like to join a discussion or casual chat.

We’ll record this session and premier it on FB Live & YouTube at 5:15 for those who’d prefer not to join a live Zoom.
