Preparation

As the whole of creation looks with eager longing for the redemption of humankind,
let us pledge ourselves anew to serve
our Creator God, the Father who is the maker of all things,
the Son through whom all things are made,
and the Holy Spirit, the giver of life, who renews the face of the earth.

Organ Prelude
Martin How: Reverie
Greeting

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

Opening Responses                                                       

Believing that God made and loves the world, we gather.
That it may be restored to fulfil God's purposes, we pray.
To seek a wisdom deeper than our own, we listen.
To honour God who gave us a voice, we worship.

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
Johann Gottfried Walther: Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr
Collect

God the Creator,
in Christ you call all people to the fullness of glory
for which you created us in your image:
heal our hardened hearts,
renew our obedience to your will,
and conform our lives to your gracious design,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The Rector

In church, the Rector's Report to the ACM is read

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 David Brown
The Peace

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

Organ Reflection
Georg Böhm: Minuet in G major
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 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

The Blessing

Helping Ukraine

Ukrainian Clothing Appeal (via Forth Valley Welcome)

There are a large number of Ukrainian refugees who are living in Dunblane Hydro and who have come over with hardly any clothing. As autumn and winter are approaching, specific things are needed.
They are waterproof coats, trainers/shoes/boots, winter clothes (jumpers etc) and sports clothes.
Either new or good quality second-hand clothes/shoes are welcome.
Collection until the end of September. Even if we can gather a few items, it would be welcome.
