Thank you for joining us on the 10th Sunday after Trinity
Here you can find resources for our Sunday liturgy to pray at home or wherever you are
Organ Prelude – JS Bach: Erbarm dich mein, o Herre Gott BWV721
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Collect for Purity
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.
Kyrie Reflection – Manuel Rodrigues Coelho: Segundo Kyrie do Mesmo Tom
As this Kyrie movement is played, we are invited to reflect on God’s loving-kindness and to ask for healing.
you make known your almighty power in your merciful compassion:
increase your mercy towards us;
that we, being eager for your promises,
may inherit the treasures of heaven;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end.
The Liturgy of the Word
You can find the texts of the readings on the pew sheet
First reading: Genesis 45.1-15 (Sue Stirling Aird)
(in communion with those in church, you are invited to join in saying the text in bold,
pausing shortly at the * asterisk)
How good and pleasant it is to live together in unity.
Oh, how good and pleasant it is, *
when brethren live together in unity!
It is like fine oil upon the head *
that runs down upon the beard,
Upon the beard of Aaron,*
and runs down upon the collar of his robe.
It is like the dew of Hermon *
that falls upon the hills of Zion.
For there the Lord has ordained the blessing: *
life for evermore.
Refrain: How good and pleasant it is to live together in unity.
Second reading: Romans 11.1-2a, 29-32 (Sue Stirling-Aird)
Gospel reading: Matthew 15.10-28 (The Rector)
Sermon (The Rector)
Organ reflection – César Franck: Vieux Noël
The Prayers and Blessing
Intercessions (Andrew Pont)
The Lord's Prayer
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
A Blessing is pronounced:
The peace of God,
which passes all understanding,
keep our hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God,
and of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord;
and may the blessing of God almighty,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
be among us and remain with us always.
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
In the name of Christ. Amen.
