Suggestions for Adult & All Ages

(Songs in italics are suitable for all ages.)

Alleluia, sing to Jesus!
And after all
As we gather in your presence now
Awake, my soul, and with the sun
For the healing of the nations
From heaven you came, helpless babe
God has chosen me
God’s Spirit is deep in my heart
Go forth and tell! O church of God, awake
I come with joy, a child of God
I, the Lord of sea and sky
I want to walk with Jesus Christ
Jesus take me as I am
Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy
My life is yours, O Lord
O thou who camest from above
Send me out from here, Lord
Take my life, and let it be
This is my, my response
We have a gospel to proclaim

Very young childrens Session

Here I come to worship you (new words to: Old Macdonald had a farm)

Here I come to worship you, here I, here I come,
and when I come you welcome me, here I, here I come.
‘Cos you loved me then, and you love me now,
love me then, love me now, every day you love me now.
Here I come to worship you, here I, here I come.

Here I come to know you more, here I, here I come.
There’s so much more to learn of you, here I, here I come.
‘Cos you knew me then, and you know me now,
knew me then, know me now, every day you know me now.
Here I come to know you more, here I, here I come.
