The Apostles' Creed

In response to the hearing of the Word let us join together in confessing the faith of our baptism,

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 life everlasting. Amen.

The Offertory Prayer

O God, you are eternally giving of yourself. Fill us fresh that we might share your blessings with those we meet.  Receive all that we offer you this day to the glory of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And 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 the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever. Amen.

Closing Hymn   Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken  Link to Hymn


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


For your goodness and generosity in giving us all we need,

help us to praise you O God.

In every circumstance of life, in good times and bad,

help us to trust you, O God.

In love and faithfulness, with all that we have and all that we are,

help us to serve you, O God.

As we speak or write or listen to those nearby or far away,

help us to share your love, O God.

In our plans and work for ourselves and for others,

help us to glorify you, O God.

In every thought and word and deed, by the power of your Holy Spirit,

this week, may we live for you, O God.

And May the Blessings of God; Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer

be with us, our loved ones and homes, this week and always. Amen
