THE CREED

All           I believe in God, the Father almighty,

                creator of heaven and earth.

                who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

                born of the Virgin Mary,

                suffered under Pontius Pilate,

                was crucified, died, and was buried;

                he descended to the dead.

                he ascended into heaven,

                he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

                and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

                I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,

                to lead us into lives which reflect your generosity.                                                             
                Change us we pray.

THE EUCHARISTIC PRAYER

                The Lord be with you     

All           and also with you.                    

                Lift up your hearts.

All           We lift them to the Lord.​

                Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All           It is right to give thanks and praise.

                It is indeed right, it is our duty and our joy, 

                at all times and I all places to give you thanks and praise, 

                holy Father, heavenly King, almighty and eternal God, 

                through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.

the

                For he is your living Word; 

                through him you have created all things from the beginning,

                and formed us in your own image.

                Through him you have freed us from the slavery of sin, 

                giving him to be born of a woman and to die upon the cross;                                         
                you raised him from the dead and exalted him to your right hand on high. 

                Through him you have sent upon us your holy and life-giving Spirit, 

                and made us a people for your own possession.

the

                Therefore with angels and archangels, 

                and with all the company of heaven, 

                we proclaim your great and glorious name, 

                for ever praising you and saying:

All           Holy, holy, holy Lord,

                God of power and might,

                heaven and earth are full of your glory.

                Hosanna in the highest.

                Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

                Hosanna in the highest.

                Accept our praises, heavenly Father, 

                through your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, 

                and as we follow his example and obey his command, 

                grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit 

                our gifts of bread and wine may be to us his body and his blood; 

                who, in the same night that he was betrayed,                     

                took bread and gave you thanks; 

                he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying:

the

                'Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;

                do this in remembrance of me.' 

                In the same way, after supper he took the cup and gave you thanks; 

                he gave it to them, saying:

                "Drink this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant, 

                which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. 

                Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me."

                Therefore, heavenly Father, we remember his offering of himself 

                made once for all upon the cross; 

                we proclaim his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension; 

                we look for the coming of your kingdom, 

                and with this bread and this cup 

                we make the memorial of Christ your Son our Lord.

                Great is the mystery of faith:

All           Christ has died:

                Christ is risen:

                Christ will come again.

                Accept through him, our great high priest, 

                this our sacrifice of thanks and praise, 

                and as we eat and drink these holy gifts 

                in the presence of your divine majesty,

                renew us by your Spirit, inspire us with your love

                and unite us in the body of your Son,

                Jesus Christ our Lord.

        

                Through him, and with him, and in him,

                in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

                with all who stand before you in earth and heaven,

                we worship you, Father almighty,

                in songs of everlasting praise:

the

All          Blessing and honour and glory and power

                be yours for ever and ever. Amen.


THE LORDS PRAYER

The Summary of the Law

Our Lord Jesus Christ said: 

Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord; 

and thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind, 

and with all thy strength. 

This is the first commandment.

And the second is like, namely this; 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 

There is none other commandment greater than these. 

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


All           Lord, have mercy upon us, 

                and write all these thy laws in our hearts, 

                we beseech thee.

may above all things seek thy honour and glory: 

and that we and all her subjects

may faithfully serve, honour, and humbly obey her, 

in thee, and for thee, 

according to thy blessed Word and ordinance; 

through Jesus Christ our Lord,         

who with thee and the Holy Ghost 

liveth and reigneth, ever one God, world without end.

THE CREED

                Maker of heaven and earth, 

                And of all things visible and invisible:

                And in one Lord Jesus Christ, 

                the only-begotten Son of God, 

                Begotten of his Father before all worlds, 

                God of God, Light of Light, 

                Very God of very God,                          

                Begotten, not made, 

                Being of one substance with the Father, 

                By whom all things were made: 

                Who for us men and for our salvation 

                came down from heaven, 

                And was incarnate 

                by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, 

                And was made man, 

                And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.                          

                He suffered and was buried, 

                And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, 

                And ascended into heaven, 

                And sitteth on the right hand of the Father. 

                And he shall come again with glory 

                to judge both the quick and the dead: 

                Whose kingdom shall have no end.

                And I believe in the Holy Ghost, 

                The Lord and giver of life, 

                Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, 

                Who with the Father and the Son 

                together is worshipped and glorified, 

                Who spake by the Prophets. 

                And I believe one Catholick and Apostolick Church.                      

                I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of  sins. 

                And I look for the Resurrection of the dead, 

                And the life of the world to come. Amen.


SERMON

INTERCESSION 

Let us pray for the whole state of Christ's Church militant here in earth.


Almighty and ever-living God, who by thy holy Apostle hast taught us to make prayers and supplications, and to give thanks, for all men: We humbly beseech thee most mercifully [*to accept our alms and oblations, and] to receive these our prayers, which we offer unto thy Divine Majesty; beseeching thee to inspire continually the universal Church with the spirit of truth, unity, and concord: And grant, that all they that do confess thy holy Name may agree in the truth of thy holy Word, and live in unity, and godly love. 



We beseech thee also to save and defend all Christian Kings, Princes, and Governors; and specially thy servant ELIZABETH our Queen; that under her we may be godly and quietly governed: And grant unto her whole Council, and to all that are put in authority under her, that they may truly and indifferently minister justice, to the punishment of wickedness and vice, and to the maintenance of thy true religion, and virtue.


Give grace, O heavenly Father, to all Bishops and Curates, that they may both by their life and doctrine set forth thy true and lively Word, and rightly and duly administer thy holy Sacraments: And to all thy people give thy heavenly grace;    and specially to this congregation here present; that, with meek heart and due reverence, they may hear, and receive thy holy Word; truly serving thee in holiness and righteousness all the days of their life.

MERCIFUL God, and heavenly Father, who hast taught us in thy holy Word that thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men; We most humbly beseech thee of thy goodness, O Lord, to comfort and succour all them, who in this transitory life are in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity. Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of, for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

        

And we also bless thy holy Name for all thy servants departed this life in thy faith and fear; beseeching thee to give us grace so to follow their good examples, that with them we may be partakers of thy heavenly kingdom: 

            

Grant this, O Father, for Jesus Christ's sake, our only Mediator and Advocate. 

All            Amen.

INVITATION TO CONFESSION

Ye that do truly and earnestly repent you of your sins, and are in love and charity with your neighbours, and intend to lead a new life, following the commandments of God, and walking from henceforth in his holy ways: Draw near with faith, and take this holy Sacrament to your comfort; and make your humble confession to Almighty God, meekly kneeling upon your knees.



CONFESSION

All           Almighty God, 

                Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

                maker of all things, judge of all men: 

                we acknowledge and bewail                                                           

                our manifold sins and wickedness,                                                 

                which we from time to time most grievously have committed,                          

                by thought, word, and deed,                                     

                against thy Divine Majesty,                                         

                provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us.                              

                We do earnestly repent, 

                and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings;                         

                The remembrance of them is grievous unto us;                     

                The burden of them is intolerable.                                 

                Have mercy upon us,                                             

                have mercy upon us, most merciful Father;                         

                for thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ's sake,                             

                forgive us all that is past;                                         

                and grant that we may ever hereafter                                 

                serve and please thee in newness of life,                             

                to the honour and glory of thy Name;                                 

                through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


ABSOLUTION

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who of his great mercy hath promised forgiveness of sins to all them that with hearty repentance and true faith turn     unto him; have mercy upon you; pardon and deliver you from all your sins; confirm and strengthen you in all goodness; and bring you to everlastiing life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All            Amen.

THE COMFORTABLE WORDS 

Hear what comfortable words our Saviour Christ saith unto all that truly turn to him.


Come unto me all that travail and are heavy laden, and I will refresh you.                                                Matthew 11.28

So God loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, 

to the end that all that believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.                                          John 3.16

Hear also what Saint Paul saith:                                                              

This is a true saying, and worthy of all men to be received, 

that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.                                                                               1 Timothy 1.15 

Hear what Saint John saith: If any man sin, 

we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 

and he is the propitiation for our sins.                                                                                                                 1 John 2.1


PREFACE

The priest and the people praise God for his goodness.


Lift up your heart.
All            We lift them up unto the Lord.

Let us give thanks unto our Lord God.
All            It is meet and right so to do.


It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, 

that we should at all times, and in all places, 

give thanks unto thee, O Lord, Holy Father, 

almighty, everlasting God.

A Proper Preface may follow

Therefore with Angels and Archangels, 

and with all the company of heaven, 

we laud and magnify thy glorious Name; 

evermore praising thee, 

All           Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts, 

                heaven and earth are full of thy glory: 

                Glory be to thee, O Lord most High. Amen.

            

We do not presume to come to this thy Table, O merciful Lord, 

trusting in our own righteousness, but in thy manifold and great mercies.          

We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under thy Table. 

But thou art the same Lord, whose property is always to have mercy: 


Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, 

so to eat the flesh of thy dear Son Jesus Christ, 

and to drink his blood, 

that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his body, 

and our souls washed through his most precious blood, 

and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. Amen.


THE PRAYER OF CONSECRATION

Almighty God, our heavenly Father,who of thy tender mercy didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption; who made there (by his one oblation of himself once offered) a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction, for the sins of the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy Gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that his precious death, until his coming again:

Hear us, O merciful Father, we most humbly beseech thee; and grant that we receiving these thy creatures of bread and wine, according to thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ's holy institution, in remembrance of his death and passion, may be partakers of his most blessed Body and Blood: who, in the same night that he was betrayed, took Bread; and, when he had given thanks, he brake it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, 


'Take, eat; this is my Body which is given for you: Do this in remembrance of me.' 


Likewise after supper he took the Cup; and, when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying,     

          

'Drink ye all of this; for this is my Blood of the New Testament, which is shed for you and for many, for the remission of sins: Do this, as oft as ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me.' 

All             Amen.


GIVING OF COMMUNION

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ, which was given for thee, preserve thy body and soul unto everlasting life: Take and eat this in remembrance that Christ died for thee, and feed on him in thy heart by faith with thanksgiving. The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, which was shed for thee, preserve thy body and soul unto everlasting life: Drink this in remembrance that Christ's Blood was shed for thee, and be thankful.

THE LORDS PRAYER

As our Saviour Christ hath commanded and taught us, we are bold to say:


                Our Father, which art in heaven, 

                Hallowed be thy Name, 

                Thy kingdom come, 

                Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. 

                Give us this day our daily bread; 

                And forgive us our trespasses, 

                As we forgive them that trespass against us; 

                And lead us not into temptation, 

                But deliver us from evil. 

                For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, 

                For ever and ever. Amen.



PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION

Almighty and ever-living God, we most heartily thank thee, 

for that thou dost vouchsafe to feed us, 

who have duly received these holy mysteries, 

with the spiritual food of the most precious 

Body and Blood of thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ; 

and dost assure us thereby of thy favour and goodness towards us; 

and that we are very members incorporate in the mystical body of thy Son, 

which is the blessed company of all faithful people; 

and are also heirs through hope of thy everlasting kingdom, 

by the merits of the most precious death and passion of thy dear Son. 



And we most humbly beseech thee, O heavenly Father, 

so to assist us with thy grace, 

that we may continue in that holy fellowship, 

and do all such good works as thou hast prepared for us to walk in; 

through Jesus Christ our Lord, 

to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost, 

be all honour and glory, world without end. 

All            Amen.

GLORIA (Not in Lent or Advent)


All           Glory be to God on high, 

                and in earth peace, good will towards men. 

                We praise thee, we bless thee, we worship thee, 

                we glorify thee, we give thanks to thee 

                for thy great glory, O Lord God, heavenly King, 

                God the Father Almighty.

            

                O Lord, the only-begotten Son, Jesu Christ; 

                O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, 

                that takest away the sins of the world, 

                have mercy upon us. 

                Thou that takest away the sins of the world, 

                have mercy upon us. 

                Thou that takest away the sins of the world, 

                receive our prayer. 

                Thou that sittest at the right hand of God the Father,                     

                have mercy upon us.


                For thou only art holy; 

                thou only art the Lord; 

                thou only, O Christ, with the Holy Ghost, 

                art most high in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

THE BLESSING


The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, 

keep your hearts and minds 

in the knowledge and love of God, 

and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord: 

And the blessing of God Almighty, 

 the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, 

be amongst you and remain with you always. 

All            Amen.

the Lord accept our prayers,

              that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful,                                                

              and that we show forth your praise,
              not only with our lips but in our lives,
              by giving up ourselves to your service,
              and by walking before you in holiness and
              righteousness all our days;
              through Jesus Christ our Lord,

THE CREED

All      I believe in God, the Father almighty,
          creator of heaven and earth.

          I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
          who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
          born of the Virgin Mary,
          suffered under Pontius Pilate,
          was crucified, died, and was buried;
          he descended to the dead.
          On the third day he rose again;
          he ascended into heaven,
          he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
          and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

          I believe in the Holy Spirit,
          the holy catholic Church,
          the communion of saints,
          the forgiveness of sins,
          the resurrection of the body,
          and the life everlasting. Amen.

 WE SAY SORRY TO GOD


Let us think for a moment about the way we have lived our lives in the past few days, remembering as we do that God loves us and wants to forgive the times when we forget his teaching and have failed to love others.  We say together...


         Loving God,

         We seek your forgiveness: 

         for failing to give account of the faith that is in us; 

         for falling silent when we should have spoken out;

         for being too quick to condemn and criticise;

         for being too slow to show compassion;

         for not living as examples of your love;

         for not behaving as the saints were and are called to be.

         Have mercy on us and forgive us.

 

May almighty God, who sent his Son into the world to save sinners, 

bring us his pardon and peace, now and for ever.

         Amen.


WE HEAR GOD'S WORD 


Almighty God, send down upon your Church the riches of your Spirit, and kindle in all who follow the gospel your countless gifts of grace; take us and use us to love and serve all people in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

         Amen.
