The light and peace of Jesus Christ be with you
And also with you.
Faithful God, who fulfilled the promises of Easter by
sending us your Holy Spirit, and made known to every
race and nation the way of eternal life; open our lips by
your Spirit, that every tongue may tell of your glory,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Christ the light of the world has come to dispel the
darkness. Together, let us confess our sins.
Silence is kept for one minute
Let us admit to God the sin which always confronts us:
Lord God, we have sinned against you; we have done
evil in your sight. We are sorry and repent. Have
mercy on us according to your love. Wash away our
wrongdoing and cleanse us from our sin. Renew a
right spirit within us and restore us to the joy of your
salvation, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
May the God of love and power forgive you and free
your from your sins, heal and strengthen you by the
Spirit, and raise you to new life in Christ our Lord.
O Lord, we call to you: come to us quickly.
Hear us when we cry to you.
Let our prayers rise up before you like incense.
Let our lifted hands be like an evening sacrifice.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever.
St Mark 8:28-34
When he came to the other side, to the country of the
Gadarenes, two demoniacs coming out of the tombs met
him. They were so fierce that no one could pass that
way. Suddenly they shouted, ‘What have you to do with
us, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us
before the time?’ Now a large herd of swine was feeding
at some distance from them. The demons begged him, ‘If
you cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.’ And he
said to them, ‘Go!’ So they came out and entered the
swine; and suddenly, the whole herd rushed down the
steep bank into the lake and perished in the water. The
swineherds ran off, and on going into the town, they told
the whole story about what had happened to the
demoniacs. Then the whole town came out to meet
Jesus; and when they saw him, they begged him to leave
their neighbourhood.
Hear my prayer, O Lord
Hear my prayer, O Lord: and let my crying come
unto thee.
Henry Purcell (1659-1695)
Blessed are you, Lord God, King of the universe.
To you be glory and praise for ever.
From the rising of the sun to its setting your name is
proclaimed in all the world.
To you be glory and praise for ever.
When the times had fully come you sent the Sun of
In him the fullness of your glory dwells. To you be
glory and praise for ever.
We pray to the Lord: in faith we pray.
We pray to you our God.
Silence is kept for one minute
That the rest of this day may be holy, peace full and full
of your presence; in faith we pray.
We pray to you our God.
That we may hear and respond to your call to peace and
justice; in faith we pray
We pray to you our God.
That you will sustain the faith and hope of those who are
lonely, oppressed and anxious; in faith we pray
We pray to you our God.
That you will strengthen us in your service, and fill our
hearts with longing for your kingdom; in faith we pray
We pray to you our God.
God of mercy, you know us and love us and hear our
prayer: keep us in the eternal fellowship of Jesus
Christ our Saviour. Amen.
O Lord, from whom all good things come: Grant to us
your humble servant, that, by your holy inspiration we
may think those things that be good, and by your
merciful guiding may perform the same; through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.
Jesus Christ is the light of the world:
a light no darkness can quench.
Stay with us, Lord, for it is evening:
and the day is almost over.
The darkness is not dark to you:
The night is as bright as the day.
Let your light scatter the darkness:
and fill your church with your glory. Amen.
