    Opening

    Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Collect for Purity

    Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known,
    and from whom no secrets are hidden:
    cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit,
    that we may perfectly love you,
    and worthily magnify your holy name;
    through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Confession and Absolution

    God is love and we are God’s children, there is no room for fear in love.
    We love because God loved us first. Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith.

    Silence

    God our Father, we confess to you
    and to our fellow members in the Body of Christ
    that we have sinned in thought, word and deed,
    and in what we have failed to do. We are truly sorry.
    Forgive us our sins,
    and deliver us from the power of evil.
    For the sake of your Son who died for us,
    Jesus Christ, our Lord.

    God, who is both power and love,
    forgive us and free us from our sins,
    heal and strengthen us by the Holy Spirit
    and raise us to new life in Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Gloria reflection

    Collect

    O Lord, let the world be ordered in peace,
    according to your will:
    that your people may be free to worship you with joy;
    through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
    who lives and reigns with you,
    in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
    one God, world without end. Amen

    Sermon
    The Revd Val Nellist

    Nicene Creed

    We believe in one God, the Father, the almighty,
    maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

    We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
    eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light,
    true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one substance with the Father.
    Through him all things were made.

    For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven;
    by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and was made human.
    For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.

    On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures;
    he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
    He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
    and his kingdom will have no end.

    We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father.
    With the Father and the Son, he is worshipped and glorified.
    He has spoken through the Prophets.

    We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
    We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
    We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.  Amen.

    Intercessions
    led by Robert Nellist

    The Peace


    We meet in Christ’s name.
    Let us share his peace.

    The Liturgy of the Sacrament

    Offertory Prayer

    Let us present our offerings to the Lord.
    Yours, Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory,
    the splendour and the majesty;
    for everything in heaven and on earth is yours.
    All things come from you, and of your own we give you.

    Eucharistic Prayer

    The Breaking of the Bread

    The living bread is broken for the life of the world.
    Lord, unite us in this sign.

    The Lord’s Prayer

    Please join in the prayer Jesus himself taught us:
    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.
    Do not bring us to the time of trial
    but deliver us from evil.
    For the kingdom, the power
    and the glory are yours,
    now and for ever.
    Amen.

    Thanksgiving and Sending Out

    Post-Communion Prayer

    Father of all,
    we give you thanks and praise
    that when we were still far off
    you met us in your Son and brought us home.

    Dying and living, he declared your love,
    gave us grace, and opened the gate of glory.
    May we who share Christ’s body live his risen life;
    we who drink his cup bring life to others;
    we whom the Spirit lights, give light to the world.

    Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us,
    so we and all your children shall be free,
    and the whole earth live to praise your name;
    through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Blessing

    The Dismissal

    Go in peace to love and serve the Lord, alleluia, alleluia.
    In the name of Christ, alleluia, alleluia.
