The church’s one foundation
1. The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord; she is his new creation by water and the word; from heaven he came and sought her to be his holy bride; with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.
2. Elect from every nation, yet one o’er all the earth, her charter of salvation one Lord, one faith, one birth; one holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food, and to one hope she presses with every grace endued.
3. Yet she on earth has union with God the Three in One, and mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won. O happy ones and holy! Lord, give us grace that we, like them, the meek and lowly, on high may dwell with thee.
Samuel John Stone
Lighting of the Candle TMC Celebrates the Past A Takapuna presence for 134 Years - Peter Norman Reading Romans 12:9-18 Helen Beckingsale TMC celebrates 50 years of Nancyâ€™s afternoons - Peter Norman HYMN
1. Love divine, all loves excelling, joy of heaven, to earth come down, fix in us thy humble dwelling, all thy faithful mercies crown: Jesus, thou art all compassion, pure unbounded love thou art; visit us with thy salvation, enter every trembling heart. 2. Come, almighty to deliver, let us all thy life receive; suddenly return, and never, never more thy temples leave: thee we would be always blessing, serve thee as thy hosts above, pray, and praise thee, without ceasing, glory in thy perfect love. 3. Finish then thy new creation, pure and spotless let us be, let us see thy great salvation, perfectly restored in thee: changed from glory into glory, till in heaven we take our place, till we cast our crowns before thee, lost in wonder, love and praise.

God Who Sets Us On A Journey
1. God who sets us on a journey to discover, dream and grow, lead us as you led your people in the desert long ago; journey inward, journey outward stir the spirit, stretch the mind; love, for God and self and neighbour, marks the way that Christ defined. 2. Exploration brings new insights, changes, choices we must face; give us wisdom in deciding, mindful always of your grace; should we stumble, lose our bearings, find it hard to know what's right, we regain our true direction focused on the Jesus light.
Joshua Salvador (Hyfrydol)
3. End our longing for the old days, grant the vision that we lack – once we've started on this journey there can be no turning back; Let us travel light, discarding excess baggage from our past, cherish only what's essential, choosing treasure that will last. Offering Community Time Prayer of Hope and Healing
Hymn God Who Sets Us On A Journey cont.
1. God who sets us on a journey to discover, dream and grow, lead us as you led your people in the desert long ago; journey inward, journey outward stir the spirit, stretch the mind; love, for God and self and neighbour, marks the way that Christ defined.
2. When we set up camp and settle to avoid love's risk and pain, you disturb complacent comfort, pull the tent-pegs up again; keep us travelling in the knowledge you are always at our side, give us courage for the journey, Christ our goal and Christ our guide.
Go Gently, Go Lightly
1. Go gently, go lightly go safe in the spirit, live simply, don’t carry much more than you need: go trusting God’s goodness, go spreading God’s kindness, stay centred on Jesus and where he will lead.
2. Go singing, go bringing the gifts of the Spirit, go hopefully searching for things that are true: in living , in loving, whatever befalls you, God keep you, God bless you in all that you do.
