Readings

The gospel lesson for Palm Sunday: Matthew 21:1-11 – read by James Wallace-Hadrill.


As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”


This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

“Say to Daughter Zion,

‘See, your king comes to you,

gentle and riding on a donkey,

and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”


The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”

The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”


This is the Word of the Lord! THANKS BE TO GOD!

Song – Ride on! ride on in majesty!

Sing with Lloyd and Rosemary


Ride on! ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die;

O Christ, thy triumphs now begin

o'er captive death and conquered sin.


Ride on, ride on in majesty!

Hark all the tribes 'hosanna' cry

Thine humble beast pursues his road

With palms and scattered garments strowed

Ride on, ride on in majesty!

Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh

The Father on His sapphire throne

Expects His own anointed Son


Ride on, ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die!

Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain

Then take, O God, Thy power, and reign!

Prayers – lead by Gill and Pete Drysdale

Our prayers are based on today’s reading from Matthews gospel.


Pete: If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.

Gill: Lord, thank you for the encouragement that even a humble donkey colt can be of great service to you. May our prayers today and throughout the Holy Week ahead bring cries of Hosanna and glory to you, our King. Lord in your mercy,

All: Hear our prayer.

Pete: The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them.

Gill: Lord God, thank you for the obedience of the disciples. We pray you would help us to keep to the wise and carefully constructed guidelines in this time of crisis. May our obedience bring the end of this crisis forward. Lord in your mercy,

All: Hear our prayer.

Pete: A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees.

Gill: Lord, we thank you for those who gave their cloaks to serve you and bring glory to your Name. We pray you would protect all who are in work, today and throughout the week, to serve the needs of others, particularly we pray for all in our medical services as the numbers of patients rise dramatically, may they get the protective equipment they need and may they know your Divine help. Lord, in your mercy,

All: Hear our prayer.

Pete: When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred.

Gill: Lord God, stir up the hearts of all in your Church and throughout the world. May we walk with you the road to Calvary this week, knowing that in your loving sacrifice we find resurrection life and hope. We commit all those we hold dear to your loving care. May they find in you, a healing presence, a shining hope, and peace at the last. Lord in your mercy,

All: Hear our prayer.

Let's say the Lord’s Prayer together.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Amen.

From heaven you came helpless babe

We sing this wonderful modern hymn, with Lloyd and Rosemary.

From heaven you came helpless babe

enter'd our world Your Glory veil'd

Not to be served but to serve

And give Your life that we might live


This is our God, the Servant King -

He calls us now to follow Him

To bring our lives as a daily offering

Of worship to the Servant King


There in the garden of tears

My heavy load He chose to bear

His heart with sorrow was torn

Yet "Not my will but Yours", He said


Come see His hand and His feet -

The scars that speak of sacrifice

Hands that flung stars into space

To cruel nails surrendered


So let us learn how to serve

And in our lives enthrone Him

Each other's needs to prefer

For Christ we're serving
