Prayer of Prenitence

God so loved the world

Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith,

firmly resolved to keep God’s commandments

and to live in love and peace with all.

Almighty God, our heavenly Father,

we have sinned against you

and against our neighbour

in thought and word and deed,

through negligence, through weakness,

through our own deliberate fault.

We are truly sorry and repent of all our sins.

For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,

who died for us,

forgive us all that is past

and grant that we may serve you

in newness of life to the glory of your name. Amen.

Lord God, Lamb of God,

have mercy on us;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father:

HYMN (Please stand)

643 Augustus Montage Toplady (1740-1778) alt.

1. Rock of ages, cleft for me,

let me hide myself in thee;

let the water and the blood,

from thy riven side which flowed,

be of sin the double cure:

cleanse me from its guilt and power.

2. Not the labours of my hands

can fulfil thy law's demands;

could my zeal no respite know,

could my tears for ever flow,

all for sin could not atone:

thou must save, and thou alone.

3. Nothing in my hands I bring,

simply to thy cross I cling;

naked, come to thee for dress;

helpless, look to thee for grace;

tainted, to the fountain Aly;

wash me, Saviour, or I die.

4. While I draw this fleeting breath,

when mine eyelids close in death,

when I soar through tracts unknown,

see thee on thy judgement throne;

Rock of ages, cleft for me,

let me hide myself in thee.

The Apostles’ Creed (Stand)

I believe in God,

the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ,

his only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again;

he ascended into heaven,

he is seated at the

right hand of the Father,

and he will come to judge

the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.

HYMN (Remain Standing)

(During this hymn, a collection is taken)

777 Fiances June van, Alayme

(Fanny J. Crosby) (1820-1915)

1. To God be the glory!

great things he hath done;

so loved he the world

that he gave us his Son;

who yielded his life

an atonement for sin,

and opened the life-gate

that all may go in.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

let the earth hear his voice;

praise the Lord, praise the Lord!

let the people rejoice:

O come to the Father,

through Jesus the Son,

and give him the glory;

great things he hath done!

2. O perfect redemption,

the purchase of blood!

to every believer

the promise of God;

the vilest offender

who truly believes,

that moment from Jesus

a pardon receives.

Preparation of the Table

Yours, Lord, is the greatness, the power,

the glory, the splendour, and the majesty;

for everything in heaven and on earth is yours.

All things come from you,

and of your own do we give you.

Final verse of the hymn is sung

3. Great things he hath taught us,

great things he hath done,

and great our rejoicing

through Jesus the Son;

but purer, and higher,

and greater will be

our wonder, our rapture,

when Jesus we see.


Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation,

you bring forth bread from the earth.

Blessed be God for ever.

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation,

you create the fruit of the Vine.

Blessed be God for ever.

The Eucharistic Prayer

The Lord be with you

and also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give thanks and praise.

You are worthy of our thanks and praise, Lord God of truth,

for by the breath of your mouth you have spoken your word, and all things have come into being.

You fashioned us in your image and placed us in the garden of your delight. Though we chose the path of rebellion you would not abandon your own.

Again and again you drew us into your covenant of grace. You gave your people the law and taught us by your prophets to look for your reign of justice, mercy and peace.

As we watch for the signs of your kingdom on earth, we echo the song of the angels in heaven, evermore praising you and singing:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

(Please kneel or sit)

Lord God, you are the most holy one, enthroned in splendour and light, yet in the coming of your Son Jesus Christ you reveal the power of your love made perfect in our human weakness.

Embracing our humanity, Jesus showed us the way of salvation; loving us to the end, he gave himself to death for us; dying for his own, he set us free from the bonds of sin, that we might rise and reign with him in glory.

On the night he gave up himself for us all he took bread and gave you thanks; he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me.

In the same way, after supper he took the cup and gave you thanks; he gave it to them, saying: Drink this, all of you; this is

my blood of the new covenant which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.

Therefore, we proclaim the death that he suffered on the cross, we celebrate his resurrection, his bursting from the tomb, we rejoice that he reigns at your right hand on high and we long for his coming in glory.

As we recall the one, perfect sacrifice of our redemption, Father, by your Holy Spirit let these gifts of your creation be to us the +body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ; form us into the likeness of Christ and make us a perfect offering in your sight.

Look with favour on your people and in your mercy hear the cry of our hearts. Bless the earth, heal the sick, let the oppressed go free and fill your Church with power from on high.

Gather your people from the ends of the earth to feast with

[N and] all your saints at the table in your kingdom, where the new creation is brought to perfection in Jesus Christ our Lord;

by whom, and with whom,

and in whom, in the unity

of the Holy Spirit, all honour

and glory be yours,

almighty Father,

for ever and ever. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer (Sung)

Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has 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 trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

the power and the glory,

for ever and ever. Amen.

Breaking of the Bread

We break this bread to share in the body of Christ.

Though we are many, we are one body,

because we all share in one bread.

Agnus Dei (Sung)

Jesus, Lamb of God,

have mercy on us.

Jesus, bearer of our sins,

have mercy on us

Jesus, redeemer of the world,

grant us your peace.

Draw near with faith.

Receive the body of our Lord Jesus Christ

which he gave for you,

and his blood which he shed for you.

Eat and drink in remembrance that he died for you,

and feed on him in your hearts by faith with thanksgiving.

Most merciful Lord,

your love compels us to come in.

Our hands were unclean,

our hearts were unprepared;

we were not fit

even to eat the crumbs from under your table.

But you, Lord, are the God of our salvation,

and share your bread with sinners.

So cleanse and feed us

with the precious body and blood of your Son,

that he may live in us and we in him;

and that we, with the whole company of Christ,

may sit and eat in your kingdom. Amen.

All are welcome at the Lords Table, if you usually take communion in your own Church you are welcome to receive the sacrament. Otherwise if you would like a blessing please come to the altar rail and bring this booklet with you. If you would prefer to remain quietly in your seat, please do so.

(Optional Communion Hymns)

152 - John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)

1. Dear Lord and Father of mankind,

forgive our foolish ways!

Re-clothe us in our rightful mind,

in purer lives thy service find,

in deeper revrence praise,

in deeper rev'rence praise.

2. In simple trust like theirs who heard,

beside the Syrian sea,

the gracious calling of the Lord,

let us, like them, without a word,

rise up and follow thee,

rise up and follow thee.

3. O Sabbath rest by Galilee!

O calm of hills above,

where Jesus knelt to share with thee

the silence of eternity,

interpreted by love!

Interpreted by love!

4. Drop thy still dews of quietness,

till all our strivings cease;

take from our souls the strain and


and let our ordered lives confess

the beauty of thy peace,

the beauty of thy peace.

5. Breathe through the heats of our


thy coolness and thy balm;

let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;

speak through the earthquake, wind

and fire,

O still small voice of calm!

O still small voice of calm!

465 "Mneo Chrind by Bishop Synesius (375-430)

wrams. Allen William Chatfield (1803-1896)

1. Lord Jesus, think on me,

and purge away my sin;

from earth-born passions set me free,

and make me pure within.

2. Lord Jesus, think on me,

with care and woe opprest;

let me thy loving servant be

and taste thy promised rest.

3. Lord Jesus, think on me

amid the battle's strife;

in all my pain and misery

be thou my health and life.

4. Lord Jesus, think on me,

nor let me go astray;

through darkness and perplexity

point thou the heavenly way.

5. Lord Jesus, think on me,

when flows the tempest high:

when on doth rush the enemy,

O Saviour, be thou nigh.

6. Lord Jesus, think on me,

that, when the flood is past,

I may th'eternal brightness see,

and share thy joy at last.

811 Joseph Medlicottcriven (1312-Ipe,

1. What a friend we have in Jesus,

all our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry

everything to him in prayer!

O what peace we often forfeit,

O what needless pain we bear,

all because we do not carry

everything to God in prayer!

2. Have we trials and temptations?

Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged:

take it to the Lord in prayer!

Can we find a friend so faithful,

who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness-

take it to the Lord in prayer.

3. Are we weak and heavy-laden,

cumbered with a load of care?

Jesus only is our refuge,

take it to the Lord in prayer!

Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

In his arms he'll take and shield thee,

thou wilt find a solace there.

The Dismissal (Please stand)

The peace of God,

which passes all understanding,

keep your hearts and minds

in the knowledge

and love of God,

and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord;

and the blessing of God almighty,

the Father, the Son,

and the Holy Spirit,

be among you

and remain with you always. Amen.


416 come labor (1923103)

1. King of glory, King of peace,

I will love thee;

and, that love may never cease,

I will move thee.

Thou hast granted my appeal,

thou hast heard me;

thou didst note my ardent zeal,

thou hast spared me.

2. Wherefore with my utmost art,

I will sing thee,

and the cream of all my heart

I will bring thee.

Though my sins against me cried,

thou didst clear me,

and alone, when they replied,

thou didst hear me.

3. Sev'n whole days, not one in sev'n,

I will praise thee;

in my heart, though not in heav’n,

I can raise thee.

Small it is, in this poor sort

to enrol thee:

c'en eternity's too short

to extol thee.


Go in peace to love and serve the Lord

In the name of Christ. Amen
