St Luke's Church in Hedge End


Opening Words

Opening Prayer

Faithful one, whose word is life:  

come with saving power  

to free our praise,  

inspire our prayer  

and shape our lives  

for the kingdom of your Son,  

Jesus Christ our Lord.  


The Collect

God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit  

upon your 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 your Son our Lord,  

who is alive and reigns with you,  

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,  

one God, now and for ever.  

You Are Holy


Almighty God, 

long-suffering and of great goodness; 

I confess to you, 

I confess with my whole heart 

my neglect and forgetfulness of your commandments 

my wrong doing, thinking and speaking; 

the hurts I have done to others, 

and the good I have left undone. 

O God, forgive me, for I have sinned against you: 

and raise me to newness of life; 

through Jesus Christ our Lord. 




May almighty God have mercy on us, 

forgive us our sins, 

and bring us to everlasting life, 

through Jesus Christ our Lord 



You Restore My Soul

Bible reading: Matthew 20: 1-16


King of Kings, Majesty

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. 

This I Believe


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 Blessing

Closing Words

Closing Prayer:

Keep us, Father, in this community of faith,  

the Church of your Son Jesus Christ,  

and help us to confess him as Messiah and Lord  

in all we say and do.  

We ask this in his name.  




May the boldness of the Spirit transform us,  

may the gentleness of the Spirit lead us,  

may the gifts of the Spirit equip us  

to serve and worship God;  

and the blessing of God almighty,  

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 

be among us and remain with us always.       Amen

Thank you for joining in our worship.
