Suggestions for Adult & All Ages

(Songs in italics are suitable for all ages.)

Alleluia, Alleluia! hearts to heaven
Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Blest are the pure in heart
Christ’s is the world in which we move
Go forth and tell! O church of God, awake
I am an instrument of the living God
In an age of twisted values
In our hearts, Lord, in this nation
I want to serve the purpose of God
Jesus, you are changing me
Multiply your love through us
New every morning is the love
See his kingdom growing
See the kingdom grow and flourish
Teach me, my God and King
The kingdom of God is justice and joy
Unless a single grain of wheat
We are a flame that is burning bright
We are marching in the light of God
Will you come and follow me

Very young childrens Session

0-5s song(s)

‘A wise child knows’ (new words to the tune of: The wise man built his house upon the rock)

A wise child knows a seed needs lots of care,
you don’t just plant your seedlings anywhere!
They need good grounding, food and love to share,
so plant your seeds with care.


Faith as small as a mustard seed (CJP 519)
We need to grow, grow, grow, grow (KS 359)
