Here you can find resources for our Sunday liturgy to pray at home or wherever you are.
The readings for this Sunday and some of the prayers of our liturgy are on the downloadable pew sheet.
Organ Prelude – John Bennett: Adagio in F
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
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.
Summary of the Law
Our Lord Jesus Christ said: The first commandment is this:
“Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is the only Lord.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul,
with all your mind and with all your strength.”
The second is this: “Love your neighbour as yourself.”
There is no other commandment greater than these.
Amen. Lord, have mercy.
Kyrie reflection – William Byrd: Kyrie from Mass for Three Voices
O God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace.
Let the design of your great love shine on the waste of our wraths and sorrows,
and give peace to your Church,
peace among nations,
peace in our homes,
and peace in our hearts;
through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
The Liturgy of the Word
First reading: Daniel 12.1-3 (read by Graeme Young)
Psalm 16 (please join in saying the psalm, pausing shortly at the *asterisk)
Refrain: My body shall rest in hope.
Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you; *
I have said to the Lord, ‘You are my Lord, my good above all other.’
All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, *
upon those who are noble among the people.
But those who run after other gods *
shall have their troubles multiplied.
Their libations of blood I will not offer, *
nor take the names of their gods upon my lips.
O Lord, you are my portion and my cup; *
it is you who uphold my lot.
My boundaries enclose a pleasant land; *
indeed, I have a goodly heritage.
I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel; *
my heart teaches me, night after night.
I have set the Lord always before me; *
because he is at my right hand I shall not fall.
My heart, therefore, is glad, and my spirit rejoices; *
my body also shall rest in hope.
For you will not abandon me to the grave, *
nor let your holy one see the Pit.
You will show me the path of life; *
in your presence there is fullness of joy, and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.
Refrain: My body shall rest in hope.
Second reading: Hebrews 10.11-14,19-25 (read by Graeme Young)
Gospel: Mark 13.1-8 (The Rector)
Sermon (The Rector)
Act of Remembrance
We meet in the presence of God.
We commit ourselves to work in penitence and faith
for reconciliation between the nations,
that all people may, together,
live in freedom, justice and peace.
We pray for all who in bereavement, disability and pain
continue to suffer the consequences of ﬁghting and terror.
We remember with thanksgiving and sorrow those whose lives,
in world wars and conﬂicts past and present,
have been given and taken away.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them.
We will remember them.
In church, a two minute silence is held.
Organ reflection – William Walton: Elegy (Richard III)
Intercessions led by Cate Watson
Please join in the final prayer:
O God, whose will it is
that all should find salvation
and come to know the truth.
Receive the prayers and petitions
which we offer in faith and love
through him who gave proof of your purpose
and who sacrificed himself to win freedom for all humankind,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Confession and Absolution
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.
We meet in Christ’s name.
Let us share his peace.
The Liturgy of the Sacrament
In church we continue with the Liturgy of the Sacrament
Offertory – John Travers: Largo
The Breaking of the Bread
The Lord’s Prayer
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.
Agnus Dei: Organ Reflection – Georg Philip Telemann: O Lamme Gottes, unschuldig
Thanksgiving and Sending Out
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 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.
