Collect

Almighty God,
whose Son, Jesus Christ,
was wonderfully transfigured before chosen witnesses upon the holy mountain,
and spoke of the exodus he would accomplish at Jerusalem:
give us strength so to hear his voice and bear our cross,
that, in the world to come, we may see him as he is;
through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.

Psalm 99

please join in saying the text, pausing shortly at the *asterisk

Refrain: God spoke to them out of the pillar of cloud.

The Lord is king; let the people tremble; *
he is enthroned upon the Cherubim; let the earth shake.

The Lord is great in Zion; *
he is high above all peoples.

Let them confess his name, which is great and awesome; *
he is the Holy One.

‘O mighty King, lover of justice, you have established equity; *
you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.’

Proclaim the greatness of the Lord our God and fall down before his footstool; *
he is the Holy One.

Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among those who call upon his name, *
they called upon the Lord, and he answered them.

He spoke to them out of the pillar of cloud; *
they kept his testimonies and the decree that he gave them.

‘O Lord our God, you answered them indeed; *
you were a God who forgave them, yet punished them for their evil deeds.’

Proclaim the greatness of the Lord our God and worship him upon his holy hill; *
for the Lord our God is the Holy One.

Refrain: God spoke to them out of the pillar of cloud.

We believe in one God, the Father, the almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,

Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,

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.

Lent Book

Our Lent Book this year is Saying Yes to Life by Dr Ruth Valerio, who is an environmentalist and theologian working at Tearfund.

This is the blurb:

As people made in the image of God, we are entrusted to look after what has been created: to share in God’s joy and ingenuity in making a difference for good.

Ruth Valerio imaginatively draws on the Days of Creation (Genesis 1), as she relates themes of light, water, land, the seasons, other creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope to matters of environmental, ethical and social concern.

Discussion Groups will meet (hopefully in person!)
on Wednesdays 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th March & 6th April at 10.30 a.m.
and on Thursdays 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st March & 7th April at 8 p.m.

Refrain: Commit your way to the Lord and trust in God.

Do not fret yourself because of evildoers; *
do not be jealous of those who do wrong.

For they shall soon wither like the grass, *
and like the green grass fade away.

Put your trust in the Lord and do good; *
dwell in the land and feed on its riches.

Take delight in the Lord, *
and he shall give you your heart's desire.

Commit your way to the Lord and put your trust in him, *
and he will bring it to pass.

He will make your righteousness as clear as the light *
and your just dealing as the noonday.

Be still before the Lord *
and wait patiently for him.

The deliverance of the righteous comes from the Lord; *
he is their stronghold in times of trouble.

The Lord will help them and rescue them; *
he will rescue them from the wicked and deliver them, because they seek refuge in him.

Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of the wicked, *
nor lingered in the way of sinners, nor sat in the seats of the scornful!

Their delight is in the law of the Lord, *
and they meditate on his law day and night.

They are like trees planted by streams of water,
bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither; *
everything they do shall prosper.

It is not so with the wicked; *
they are like the chaff which the wind blows away.

Therefore the wicked shall not stand upright when judgment comes, *
nor the sinner in the council of the righteous.

For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, *
but the way of the wicked is doomed.

Prayer for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Almighty and eternal God,
you uphold and govern all things
both in heaven and on earth,
and by your grace alone kings and queens do reign.

We thank you for all the blessings which you have bestowed upon us
throughout the reign of our sovereign lady, Queen Elizabeth,
whom you have set over us these threescore years and ten.

We thank you for the wisdom of her guidance and her love of peace,
for the care and devotion with which she has served her people,
for the example of her gracious life.

As we rejoice before you with thankful hearts,
we pray that we may ever be united in love and service to one another,
as people called to live according to your will,
for the good of all the world,
and the glory of your great name,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty and Everlasting God:
as your only-begotten Son was presented and received in the temple,

Gospel Reading Luke 2.22-40 (The Rector)
Sermon (The Rector)
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 Nick Morris)
The Peace

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

Do not bring us to the time of trial

now and for ever.
Amen.

The Liturgy of the Word

Page from Gospel Book
First Reading Nehemiah 8.1-3,5-6,8-10 (read by Jane Morris)
Psalm 19

please join in saying the text in bold, pausing shortly at the *asterisk

Refrain: Your words are spirit, Lord, and they are life.

The heavens declare the glory of God, *
and the firmament shows his handiwork.

One day tells its tale to another, *
and one night imparts knowledge to another.

Although they have no words or language, *
and their voices are not heard,

Their sound has gone out into all lands, *
and their message to the ends of the world.

In the deep has he set a pavilion for the sun; *
it comes forth like a bridegroom out of his chamber;
—it rejoices like a champion to run its course.

It goes forth from the uttermost edge of the heavens and runs about to the end of it again; *
nothing is hidden from its burning heat.

The law of the Lord is perfect and revives the soul; *
the testimony of the Lord is sure and gives wisdom to the innocent.

The statutes of the Lord are just and rejoice the heart; *
the commandment of the Lord is clear and gives light to the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is clean and endures for ever; *
the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold, more than much fine gold, *
sweeter far than honey, than honey in the comb.

By them also is your servant enlightened, *
and in keeping them there is great reward.

Who can tell how often he offends? *
cleanse me from my secret faults.

Above all, keep your servant from presumptuous sins; let them not get dominion over me; *
then shall I be whole and sound, and innocent of a great offence.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, *
O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.

Refrain: Your words are spirit, Lord, and they are life.
