Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Believing that God made and loves the world,
That it may be restored to fulfil God’s purposes,
To seek a wisdom deeper than our own,
To honour God who gave us a voice,

Almighty and everlasting God,
whose will it is to restore all things
in your well-beloved Son, our Lord and King:
grant that the peoples of the earth,
now divided and enslaved by sin,
may be freed and brought together under his gentle and loving rule;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Do you believe in God the Father, who made the world?
I believe in God the Father.
Do you believe in God the Son, who redeemed humanity?
I believe in God the Son.
Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit who gives life to God’s people?
I believe in God the Holy Spirit.
This is the faith of the Church.
This is our faith.
We believe in one God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
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.
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.
We meet in Christ’s name.
Let us share his peace.
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.
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.
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.
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
In the name of Christ. Amen.
