Good morning and welcome to our online service today. Following an open-air meeting of the leadership last Wednesday I have recorded a statement of where we are in term of planning to return to meeting together on a Sunday morning. We decided to recommence on 12th July, but this will involve quite a few restrictions, as I mention in the statement, which follows here:
And now, a couple of praise and worship videos which we have featured previously. They are songs I would like us to learn (whenever we can start singing together again!), so though they would bear re-featuring here:
And here is today’s message from Psalm 46:
Psalm 46: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has made desolations in the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
