ONLINE CHURCH for the time being

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have suspended all physical contact meetings for the time being.

We will post a weekly “church service” online (on our webpage) that you can follow to have church at home.  Like Paul says in Colossians 2:5, we are absent from each other in body, but we will be “present in the Spirit”.

We do not know what the future holds, but we know Who holds the future.

Worship Service 29 March 2020

1) Preparation and Prayer

Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.

Psalm 40:1–3 (ESV)
I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry.
He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.

Carols by Candlelight


1) Welcome & Prayer

2) Voorlesing #1: Galasiërs 4:3-7

3) Sang-item: Kom Alle Getroues

4) Sing: Kom Kinders Besing

1. Kom, kinders, besing met ‘n vrolike stem

die wonder van God in die stad Betlehem,

want daar is die Heiland gebore, dié nag,

die hoop van die wêreld, deur eeue verwag.

3. In need’rige krip was sy bedjie berei –

die Kind wat die harte van almal verbly.

Omhoog, uit die hemel, sing engele eer,

die herders en wyses kom kniel voor Hom neer.

4. Ons bring soos die herders en engele weer

aan Hom alle hulde, ons Heiland en Heer.

Verlos van die sonde, besing ons tesaam

die roem en die eer van sy heerlike Naam.

4) Sing: Die Heiland is gebore

1. Die Heiland is gebore, soos eeue reeds voorspel.

Daar in die stad van Dawid word Hy Immanuel.

Met blye hemelkore wil ons ook juig en sing:

Ons Heiland is gebore – dis Hy wat redding bring!

2. Die Lig kom na die wêreld in Jesus Christus, Heer

Uit liefde vir die mensdom daal Hy as dienskneg neer.

So lief het God die wêreld, Hy gee vir ons sy Seun –

só word Hy ons Verlosser, ons Middelaar en Steun.

3. Wie glo in Jesus Christus, word nou sy eiendom.

Hy gee die reg tot kindskap aan dié wat glo in Hom.

Juis daarom juig ons harte opnuut dié Kersfeestyd:

Ons Heiland is gebore – vertel dit wêreldwyd.

5) Sing: Away in a manger

1. Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,

the little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.

The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay,

the little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

3. Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask Thee to stay

close by me for ever, and love me I pray.

Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,

and fit us for heaven to live with Thee there.

6) Al Was Ek Nie daar Nie.

1. Al was ek nie daar nie ek weet dit is waar

Die krip en Maria met die Kindjie by haar

Dis asof die engel die boodskap nog bring

Van Jesus, Sy vrede wat harte laat sing

2 Al was ek nie daar nie ek weet dit is so

Die herders en wyses het dit eerste geglo

En deur al die jare bou Jesus Sy kerk:

Die Gees en die Woord kom geloof in ons werk

3. Al kan ek Hom nie sien nie tog weet ek Hy’s daar,

omdat ek God’s liefde in my lewe ervaar.

O kom nou, Heer Jesus en maak my hart skoon,

dat U ook as Koning in my kan kom woon.

7) Reading #2: Isaiah 9:2-7

8) Sang Item: Little Drummer Boy

9) Sing: O Holy Night

1. O holy night! The stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining

‘Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees; O hear the angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born

O night, O holy night, O night divine!

2. Truly He taught us to love one another;

His law is love and His gospel is peace

Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother

And in His name all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we

Let all within us praise His holy name

Christ is the Lord; O praise His name forever!

His power and glory evermore proclaim

His power and glory evermore proclaim

10) Sing: O come all ye faithful

1. O come, all ye faithful,

joyful and triumphant

O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem

Come and behold Him,

Born the King of angels

O come, let us adore Him 3x

Christ the Lord

2. Sing choirs of angels,

sing in exultation,

Sing all ye citizens of Heaven above!

Glory to God,

in the highest!

3. Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,

born this happy morning,

Jesus to thee be all glory giv’n:

Word of the Father,

now in flesh appearing

10) Sing: Once in Royal David’s city

1. Once in royal David’s city,

Stood a lowly cattle shed,

Where a mother laid her Baby,

In a manger for His bed.

Mary was that mother mild,

Jesus Christ – her little child.

2. He came down to earth from heaven,

Who is God and Lord of all,

And His shelter was a stable,

And His cradle was a stall:

With the poor and meek and lowly

Lived on earth our Saviour holy.

3. And our eyes at last shall see Him,

Through His own redeeming love,

For that Child so dear and gentle

Is our Lord in Heav’n above,

And He Leads His children on

To the place where He is gone

11) Sing: O die Goeie Tyding

kom met krag in die Kersfeestyd:

Hy, die Hemelkoning,

maak by mense woning –

Hy, gebore in die volheid van die tyd!

3. O die goeie tyding, o die blye tyding –

oral hoor ons: Dis Kersfeestyd.

Blye jubelkore, loof die Kind, gebore.

Juig nou mensdom, prys Hom tot in ewigheid!

12) Sing: Hoor die blye Eng’lelied

Hy daal tot die sondaar neer.”

Almal, juig met hart en stem:

God word mens in Betlehem.

Hoor die blye eng’lelied

aan die Koningseun gebied.

2. Christus ewig God en Heer

Christus daar omhoog vereer

In die volheid van die tyd

word Hy mens in need’righeid

Sondelose Lam van God

kom aanvaar die mens se lot

Hy, met mense saamgetel

ware God – Immanuel!

Ook die aarde bring Hom eer –

Christus ewig God en Heer

3. Jesus, ware Vredevors,

kom vir Hom ‘n volk verlos.

Wêreldwyd, in elke land

kom bevryding deur sy hand.

In ons nood het Hy gedaal,

vir ons lewe duur betaal.

Vrygemaak, deur Hom gevind,

is ek ook nou koningskind!

Almal deur sy koms verlos,

dank en loof die Vredevors!

loof die Here God

in die hoogste heem’le.

Kom, loof die Heer,

praat hul van die Jesuskind:

Herder vir die mens op aarde

wat verdwaaldes soek en vind.

klink dit nou die wêreld deur:

Liefde, vrede, welbehae

daal in Jesus tot ons neer.

16) Sing: O Christus ons Verlange

1. O Christus, ons verlange,

U het ons heil gebring.

Sal ooit ons jubelsange

u lof na waarde sing?

Vervul in welbehae

ons harte met u Gees;

skenk ons in hierdie dae

‘n ware Christusfees.

2. U wat as Hemelkoning

in heerlikheid regeer,

maak onder mense woning;

daal as ‘n dienskneg neer –

en herders vind ‘n Herder

oor wie hul dankbaar juig;

en wyses vind dié Wysheid

voor wie hul biddend buig.

3. Soos kinders met “hosannas”

hul Koning bly ontmoet,

en Sion sy Messias

met jubels kon begroet –

my lof- en dankgebede

U juigend hulde bring.
