9th Sunday after Trinity 2020: Worship Resources

Thank you for joining us on the 9th Sunday after Trinity

Here you can find resources for our Sunday liturgy to pray at home or wherever you are


Organ Prelude

Louis Vierne: Arabesque (24 Pièces en Style Libre) op. 31, 15


In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Collect for Purity

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.

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.

The Collect

Open your merciful ears, O Lord,
to the prayers of your humble servants:
and, that you would graciously grant what we ask,
make us desire what is pleasing in your sight;
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


(in communion with those in church, you are invited to join in saying the text in bold,
pausing shortly at the *asterisk)

Refrain: Sing to the Lord, sing praises to him.

Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his name;*
make known his deeds among the peoples.

Sing to him, sing praises to him,*
and speak of all his marvellous works.

Glory in his holy name;*
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.

Search for the Lord and his strength;*
continually seek his face.

Remember the marvels he has done,*
his wonders and the judgements of his mouth,

O offspring of Abraham his servant,*
O children of Jacob his chosen.

Then he called for a famine in the land*
and destroyed the supply of bread.

He sent a man before them,*
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.

They bruised his feet in fetters;*
his neck they put in an iron collar.

Until his prediction came to pass,*
the word of the Lord tested him.

The king sent and released him;*
the ruler of the peoples set him free.

He set him as master over his household,*
as a ruler over all his possessions,

To instruct his princes according to his will*
and to teach his elders wisdom.

Refrain: Sing to the Lord, sing praises to him.

The Prayers and Blessing

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.
