Opening Hymn - CP# 577 God of Grace and God of Glory (verses 1,2 and 4 only) 


The Grace

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. And also with you.


Kyrie Confession (from Common Worship)


You raise the dead to life in the Spirit:

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.


You bring pardon and peace to the broken in heart:

Christ, have mercy.

Christ, have mercy.


You make one by your Spirit the torn and divided:

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.


A moment of silence for personal confession.




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.


Collect Prayer 

Almighty God, whose Son was revealed in Majesty before he suffered death upon the cross, give us faith to perceive his glory, that being strengthened by his grace we may be changed into his likeness, from glory to glory; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.


Readings: Philippians 3:17-4:1, Psalm 127, Luke 13:31-35




Affirmation of Faith - Apostle’s Creed


Let us confess the faith of our baptism, as we say,

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He 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, and is seated at the right hand of the Father He will come again 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.


Prayers of the People


The Peace

May the peace of the Lord always be with you. And also with you.

Prayer over the Gifts

God of wisdom, may the light of the eternal Word, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, guide us to you glory. We ask this in his name.


The Great Thanksgiving


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 our thanks and praise.  


We give you thanks and praise, almighty God, through your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Redeemer…


Now with all creation we raise our voices to proclaim the glory of your name.


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.


Holy and gracious God, accept our praise…


All glory and honour are yours, Father and Son, with the Holy Spirit in the holy Church, now and for ever. Amen.


The Lord’s Prayer

As our Saviour taught us, let us pray,

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial, and deliver us from evil. For he kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen.

Breaking of the Bread


We break this bread, Communion in Christ’s body once broken.

Let your Church be the wheat which bears its fruit in dying.

If we have died with him, we shall live with him; if we hold firm, we shall reign with him.




Communion Hymn : CP #63 Eat This Bread, Drink This Cup


Prayer after communion

Creator of heaven and earth, we thank you for these holy mysteries, which bring us now a share in the life to come, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 



Glory to God, whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Glory to God from generation to generation in the Church and in Christ Jesus. Amen.
