“I am the Good Shepherd”
John 10:11

Introductory music


Welcome to our time of worship. Thank you for joining us. Most of our videos have subtitles, which you can switch on / off. On a computer you may have a option “CC” to choose subtitles in English. On phone or tablet, you may need to choose subtitles from a settings menu.

Introduction and Psalm 23

This week’s time of worship is led by John Dent, who provides a welcome, and Sarah Jane Dent will read Psalm 23.


Our opening hymn is “The King of Love, my Shepherd is”.

Bible Readings

Luke chapter 15 verses 3-7 and John chapter 10 verses 11-18, read by Frances Dent


by John Dent, which has subtitles.


Let us reflect on these words as we sing “Father Hear The Prayer We Offer”, recorded for BBC Songs of Praise.


John Dent now leads us in prayer

Let us say together the words which Jesus taught us:

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 debts
as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,


Our final hymn is “All the way my Saviour leads me”, this recording is taken from the publisher, and the words with the music will appear on the screen as the video plays.


We normally say the words of the Grace to each other. We say them now to whoever is with us, and to everyone we have thought about during this time of worship.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, now and evermore. Amen.

Final music

Trumpet voluntary by J Clarke, played on our church organ
