Here you can find resources for our liturgy to pray at home or wherever you are.
The readings for today and some of the prayers of our liturgy are on the downloadable pew sheet.
On this festival of the Holy Trinity,
we celebrate Music Sunday as part of our important link with The Royal School of Church Music
In church, there will be an Act of Commitment by all who take part in music,
primarily the whole congregation and also those who dedicate time to rehearsing and leading music
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
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.
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.
Almighty and Everlasting God,
you have given us grace in the profession of true faith
to recognise the glory of the eternal Trinity:
keep us steadfast in this faith
and bring us to see you in your perfect and eternal unity;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.
In church, we sing the hymn 'Bless the Lord, O saints and servants'
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with gladness and come before God’s presence with a song.
Psalm 100 v.1
The whole congregation is addressed:
God calls us to a ministry of music to deepen our prayer and praise.
This ministry is shared by all of God’s people, so I ask all of you assembled here:
will you continue to lend your voice to our worship and sing to God’s glory?
With the help of God, we will.
Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise; give thanks to him and call upon his name.
Psalm 100 v.3
All singers and instrumentalists are addressed:
Some in our sacred community have a specific calling to lead us in song and prayer,
to teach us a new song and add harmony and colour to our praise as we call upon God’s name.
Will you continue in your ministry as faithful stewards of our music and lead us in songs of prayer?
With the help of God, we will.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and God’s faithfulness endures from age to age.
Psalm 100 v.4
The choir and music group offer a song of Dedication by Margaret Rizza.
We meet in Christ's name.
Let us share his peace.
In church, we continue with the Liturgy of the Sacrament
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.
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
In the name of Christ. Amen.
