Hymn  All Hail the Power of Jesus Name
(Led by Walton Salvation Army Choir and band)

Don’t forget to skip the ads


O Lord open our lips
And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Give us the joy of your saving help
And sustain us with your life-giving spirit.

Confession: Isaiah 53v1-6

Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.

He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.

Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;

and the Lord has laid on him
 the iniquity of us all.

May God who loved the world so much that he sent his Son to be our Saviour
forgive us our sins and make us holy to serve him in the world,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Affirmation of Faith

Do you believe and trust in God the Father,
source of all being and life,
the one for whom we exist?

We believe and trust in him.

Do you believe and trust in God the Son, who took our human nature,
died for us and rose again?

We believe and trust in him.

Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit,
who gives life to the people of God
and makes Christ known in the world?

We believe and trust in him.


This is the faith of the Church.

This is our faith.

We believe and trust in one God,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


Reading: John 20v11-18

Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb  and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”
Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary.”
She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).
Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

This is the word of the Lord
Thanks be to God.

Talk 1 by Neil

Song: Rejoice the Lord is King


Day by day, dear Lord of you three things I pray:
To see you more clearly,
To love you more dearly,
To follow you more nearly,

Lord, thank you for the community of St Michaels to which we belong; for its strength and its challenges. Thank you for those who have been alongside us in the struggles of life and especially during this difficult period. Help us to see all people through your loving gaze and to speak of your love beyond these walls to those in our wider community. 


A prayer for healing
Lord Jesus, you healed many who were blind, lame and suffering from many kinds of illness.
We believe your healing power is as great as ever.
Today we remember before you those who we are concerned for,
that they may receive comfort, hope and recovery of health.

We say together the Lord’s Prayer:

Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come; thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation: but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, For ever and ever.

Hymn: Great is thy faithfulness

Christ crucified draw you to himself,
to find in him a sure ground for faith,
a firm support for hope,
and the assurance of sins forgiven,
and the blessing of God Almighty the Father the son and the Holy spirt be with you
this day and evermore. Amen.
