Welcome in the name of Christ. God’s grace, mercy, and
peace be with you.
And also with you.
We come from scattered lives to meet with God. Let us
recognise God’s presence with us.
As God’s people we have gathered. Let us worship
together. Amen.
We come to God as one from whom no secrets are
hidden, to ask for his forgiveness and peace.
Silence is kept
Let us admit to God the sin which always confronts us:
Almighty and most merciful Father, we have
wandered and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.
We have followed too much the devices and desires of
our own hearts. We have offended against your holy
laws. We have left undone those things that we ought
to have done; and we have done those things that we
ought not to have done; and there is no health in us.
But you, O Lord, have mercy upon us sinners. Spare
those who confess their faults. Restore those who are
penitent, according to your promises declared to
humankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O
most merciful Father, for his sake, that we may live a
disciplined, righteous and godly life, to the glory of
your holy name. Amen.
May the God of love and power forgive you and free you
from your sins, heal and strengthen you by the Spirit,
and raise you to new life in Christ our Lord. Amen.
God in Christ has revealed his glory.
Come, let us worship.
From the rising of the sun to its setting.
The Lord’s name is greatly to be praised.
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 Luke 6:20-26
Then he looked up at his disciples and said: ‘Blessed are
you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
‘Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be
filled. ‘Blessed are you who weep now, for you will
laugh. ‘Blessed are you when people hate you, and when
they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account
of the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy,
for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what
their ancestors did to the prophets. ‘But woe to you who
are rich, for you have received your consolation.
‘Woe to you who are full now, for you will be hungry.
‘Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn
and weep. ‘Woe to you when all speak well of you, for
that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets.
Nunc Dimittis
Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace:
according to thy word. For mine eyes have seen thy
salvation which thou hast prepared before the face of
all people; to be a light to lighten the Gentiles and to be
the glory of thy people Israel.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy
as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised.
There is no end to God’s greatness.
One generation shall praise your works to another
and shall declare your power.
All your works praise you, Lord,
and your faithful servants bless you.
They make known the glory of your kingdom
and speak of your power.
My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord:
let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
We pray to the Lord: in faith we pray.
We pray to you our God.
Silence is kept
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.
God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit upon
you Church in the burning fire of your love: Grant that
your people may be fervent in the fellowship of the
gospel; that, always abiding in you, they may be found
steadfast in faith and active in service; through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.
Heavenly Father, we share together the blessing of your
Give us in this life knowledge of your truth, and in
the world to come life everlasting; through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.
