Sing psalms, hymns and sacred songs: let us sing to God with thankful hearts. cf Colossians 3. 16, 17 Opening Song: Hope of the nations Jesus hope of the nations Jesus comfort for all who mourn You are the source of heaven's hope on earth Jesus light in the darkness Jesus truth in each circumstance You are the source of heaven's light on earth In history You lived and died You broke the chains You rose to life Continued…. .
You are the hope living in us You are the Rock in whom we trust You are the light shining for all the world to see You rose from the dead conquering fear Our Prince of Peace drawing us near Jesus our hope living for all who will receive Lord we believe
We kneel to pray… Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hidden: cleanse thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen. All The Summary of the Law The response to the Summary is: Amen. Lord, have mercy. Kyrie Lord, have mercy. All Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. All Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. All Lord, have mercy.
The Collect: O GOD, whose never-failing providence orders all things both in heaven and earth: We humbly beseech you to put away from us all hurtful things, and to give us those things which are profitable for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
New Testament Reading: Romans 8: 12 -17 So then, brothers and sisters, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. This is the word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
Song: Create in me a clean heart, oh God And renew a right spirit within me Cast me not away from Thy presence, oh Lord And take not Thy Holy Spirit from me Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation And renew a right spirit within me
The Gospel: St Matthew 7: 15 -21 When the Gospel is announced, the priest says, Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St Matthew Glory to you, O Lord “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thorn bushes? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. This is the Gospel of the Lord Praise to you, O Christ
Song: The risen Christ O Breath of God come fill this place Revive our hearts to know Your grace And from our slumber make us rise That we may know the risen Christ O Word of God so clear and true Renew our minds to trust in You And give to us the Bread of Life That we may know the risen Christ O love of God so unrestrained Refresh our souls in Jesus' name Let us reflect Your sacrifice That we may know the risen Christ May God the Father God the Son And God the Spirit make us one In holiness let us unite That we may know the risen Christ The Talk
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen. Prayers of Intercession (we kneel or sit) The intercessor prays: Lord, in your mercy We respond: Hear our prayer And at the end: Merciful Father We all say: accept these prayers for the sake of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
Confession and Absolution Priest Jesus says, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is close at hand. ’ So let us turn away from sin and turn to Christ, Confessing our sins in penitence and faith. cf Matthew 3: 2 Silence is kept
We pray the following after a moment of silence: 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 heartily 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.
The priest says Almighty God, who forgives all who truly repent, have mercy upon you, pardon and deliver you from all your sins, confirm and strengthen you in all goodness, and keep you in life eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord. All Amen. The Peace (we stand) The peace of the Lord be always with you. All and also with you. All may exchange a sign of peace.

Eucharistic Prayer The Lord be with you. All And also with you. Lift up your hearts. All We lift them to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. All It is right to give thanks and praise. It is indeed right, it is our duty and our joy, at all times and in all places to give you thanks and praise, holy Father, heavenly King, almighty and eternal God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. For he is our great high priest, who has loosed us from our sins and has made us to be a royal priesthood to you, our God and Father.
Therefore with angels and archangels, and with all the company of heaven, we proclaim your great and glorious name, for ever praising you and saying: All 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. (we kneel to pray) All glory be to you, our heavenly Father, who, in your tender mercy, gave your only Son our Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption; who made there by his one oblation of himself once offered a full, perfect and sufficient sacrifice, oblation and satisfaction for the sins of the whole world; he instituted, and in his holy gospel commanded us to continue, a perpetual memory of his precious death until he comes again.
Hear us, merciful Father, we humbly pray, and grant that, by the power of your Holy Spirit, we receiving these gifts of your creation, this bread and this wine, according to your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ’s holy institution, in remembrance of his death and passion, may be partakers of his most blessed body and blood; who, in the same night that he was betrayed, 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 All Amen often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.
The Lord’s Prayer Let us pray All 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.
Agnus Dei All Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world, have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world, grant us peace.
Prayer of Humble Access All We do not presume to come to this your table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but in your manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under your table. But you are the same Lord whose nature is always to have mercy. Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of your dear Son Jesus Christ and to drink his blood, that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his body and our souls washed through his most precious blood, and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. Amen.
The Administration of Communion An Act of Spiritual Communion My Jesus, I believe that You offer yourself to us in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come spiritually into my heart. I embrace You, believing You are already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
Medley God of all my days I came to You with my heart in pieces And found the God with healing in His hands I turned to You put ev'rything behind me And found the God who makes all things new I look to You drowning in my questions And found the God who holds all wisdom And I trusted You and stepped out on the ocean You caught my hand among the waves 'Cause You're the God of all my days Each step I take You make a way And I will give You all my praise My seasons change You stay the same You're the God of all my days Continued…. .
I ran from You and wandered in the shadows And found a God who relentlessly pursues I hid from You haunted by my failure And found the God whose grace still covers me I fell on You when I was at my weakest And found the God the lifter of my head And I've worshipped You and felt You right beside me You're the reason that I sing 'Cause You're the God of all my days In my worry God You are my stillness In my searching God You are my answers In my blindness God You are my vision In my bondage God You are my freedom In my weakness God You are my power You're the reason that I sing 'Cause You're the God of all my days
Still my soul be still and do not fear Though winds of change may rage tomorrow God is at your side no longer dread The fires of unexpected sorrow God You are my God And I will trust in You and not be shaken Lord of peace renew A steadfast spirit within me To rest in You alone Still my soul be still do not be moved By lesser lights and fleeting shadows Hold on to His ways with shield of faith Against temptation's flaming arrows Still my soul be still do not forsake The truth you learned in the beginning Wait upon the Lord and hope will rise As stars appear when day is dimming
You dwell in the songs that we are singing Restless Rising to the heavens Rising to Your heart Our praises filling up the spaces In between our frailty and ev'rything You are the Keeper of my heart And I'm restless 'Til I rest in You 'til I rest in You I am restless I'm restless 'Til I rest in You 'til I rest in You Oh God Oh speak now for my soul is list'ning Say that You have saved me Whisper in the dark 'Cause I know You're more than my salvation Without You I am hopeless tell me who You are the Keeper of my heart Still my heart hold me close Let me hear a still small voice Let it grow let it rise Into a shout into a cry
Prayers after Communion [a moment of silence] All Father of all, we give you thanks and praise, that when we were still far off you met us in your Son and brought us home. Dying and living, he declared your love, gave us grace, and opened the gate of glory. May we who share Christ’s body live his risen life; we who drink his cup bring life to others; we whom the Spirit lights give light to the world. Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us, so we and all your children shall be free, and the whole earth live to praise your name; through Christ our Lord. Amen. Notices After the notices we stand to sing the closing song
Final Song: What a faithful God Lord I come before Your throne of grace I find rest in Your presence And fullness of joy In worship and wonder I behold Your face Singing what a faithful God have I What a faithful God have I Faithful in ev'ry way Lord of mercy You have heard my cry Through the storm You're the beacon My song in the night In the shelter of Your wings hear my heart's reply Singing what a faithful God have I Lord all sov'reign granting peace from heav'n Let me comfort those who suffer With the comfort You have giv'n I will tell of Your great love for as long as I live
The priest pronounces the Final Blessing Go in peace to love and serve the Lord. All In the name of Christ. Amen.
