Opening Words & Prayer

Opening Prayer
Almighty God,
your Son has opened for us
a new and living way into your presence.
Give us new hearts and constant wills
to worship you in spirit and in truth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Collect
God, our judge and saviour
teach us to be open to your truth
and to trust in your love
that we may live each day 
with confidence in the salvation which you have given
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Here I Am to Worship


Lord our God,
in our sin we have avoided your call.
Our love for you is like a morning cloud,
like the dew that goes away early.
Have mercy on us;
deliver us from judgement;
bind up our wounds and revive us;
in Jesus Christ our Lord.

May almighty God,
who sent his Son into the world to save sinners,
bring us his pardon and peace, now and forever.

Kyrie Eleison

Lyrics: Kyrie Eleison
Lord have mercy
Christ have mercy
Hear our cry and heal our land
Let kindness lead us to repentance
Bring us back again
For Your Name is great
And Your heart is grace
Kyrie Eleison
Over all You reign
You alone can save
Kyrie Eleison
Lord have mercy
Christ have mercy on us now
Who is this God
Who pardons all our sin
So ready to forgive
You delight to show Your mercy

Yesterday, Today and Forever

The Creed

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, 
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 
born of the Virgin Mary, 
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, 
he is seated at the right hand of the Father, 
and he will come 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. 

I Believe in Jesus


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 today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.  Amen.

The Feast is Ready

Closing Words

Closing Prayer
Great God, you are one God,
and you bring together what is scattered
and mend what is broken.
Unite us with the scattered peoples of the earth
that we may be one family of your children.
Bind up all our wounds
and heal us in spirit,
that we may be renewed as disciples of Jesus Christ,
our Master and Saviour.
Christ the good shepherd,
who laid down his life for the sheep,
draw us and all who hear his voice,
to be one flock within one fold;
and the blessing of God almighty,
Father Son and Holy Spirit be with us all ever more.

Thank you for joining in our worship.
