Glory of the Risen Lord – S@S

Sunday@Seven – The Glory of the Risen Lord

Our next Sunday@Seven service will be on April 28th, meeting together in the hall at Christ Church. In the follow up to Easter, the theme this time is: ‘The Glory of the Risen Lord’.

The title comes from the great song written by Noel Richards and Tricia Richards and you can find a link to a performance of it here.

The song in turn is based on Psalm 19 the start of which is like this:

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
    It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

Please follow this link to Bible Gateway if you want to read the rest of this wonderful Psalm.

Nigel will have been to Spring Harvest so there will probably be some new songs to learn too…

What is Sunday @ Seven?

Sunday@Seven is an opportunity to sing and pray in a more informal setting than the usual Sunday and weekday church services. It’s led by Nigel Silvester, our Authorised Lay Minister (lead vocals and acoustic guitar) and Cath Hilton (backing vocals and keyboard), plus anyone else who has been volunteered on the night. It lasts around an hour (ish).

So if you enjoy hymns old & new then we’d love to see you! There’s prayer and thought-provoking meditations too. Plus a brew, cake and biscuits to keep you going. And this year we hope to hold Sunday@Seven on the last Sunday of every month.

We look forward to seeing you!
