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, accept our praise and thanksgiving. Help us in all we do to offer ourselves as a true and living sacrifice; through Jesus Christ the 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 - Guide Me, O thou Great Redeemer 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


The Light of God surrounds you.

The Love of God enfolds you.

The power of God protects you.

The presence of God watches over you.

For wherever you are, God is.

And may the blessing of God Almighty,

the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

Be amongst us and remain with us always. Amen.
