Father we thank you that once again we can meet together in this place, we thank you for one another, as we come to give thanks, praise and worship you.
Father we think of those who are not well at this time and cannot be with us, may they know your peace and presence with them at this time.
And so we offer up this time to you, to honour you, to glorify you in all we say and do, in Jesus name amen.
The King has come
You are the king of Glory
King of Kings Majesty

We continue to thank all those who work behind the scenes in visiting, phone calls, whatsapp, etc who are a source of great encouragement.
We normally have a clip for the children with the subject being looked at this morning, but could not find a suitable clip for the parable of the Minars, as it is thought to be the same as the parable of the talents which we will look at another time, so here is a clip from a movie based on Luke 19:1-27.
11 As they heard these things, he proceeded to tell a parable, because he was near to Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. 12 He said therefore, “A nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and then return.13 Calling ten of his servants, he gave them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Engage in business until I come.’14 But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’15 When he returned, having received the kingdom, he ordered these servants to whom he had given the money to be called to him, that he might know what they had gained by doing business.16 The first came before him, saying, ‘Lord, your mina has made ten minas more.’17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant! Because you have been faithful in a very little, you shall have authority over ten cities.’18 And the second came, saying, ‘Lord, your mina has made five minas.’19 And he said to him, ‘And you are to be over five cities.’20 Then another came, saying, ‘Lord, here is your mina, which I kept laid away in a handkerchief;21 for I was afraid of you, because you are a severe man. You take what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.’22 He said to him, ‘I will condemn you with your own words, you wicked servant! You knew that I was a severe man, taking what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow?23 Why then did you not put my money in the bank, and at my coming I might have collected it with interest?’24 And he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him, and give it to the one who has the ten minas.’25 And they said to him, ‘Lord, he has ten minas!’26 ‘I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.27 But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me.’”
