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 – Johann Krieger: Vater unser im Himmelreich
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.
Gloria reflection – Johann Gottfried Walther: Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr
Almighty and everlasting God,
whose will it is to restore all things
in your well-beloved Son, our Lord and King:
grant that the peoples of the earth,
now divided and enslaved by sin,
may be freed and brought together under his gentle and loving rule;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
The Liturgy of the Word
First reading: Daniel 7.9-10,13-14 (read by Ian Boa)
Psalm 93 (please join in saying the psalm, pausing shortly at the *asterisk)
Refrain: You Lord, are from everlasting.
The Lord is king; he has put on splendid apparel; *
the Lord has put on his apparel and girded himself with strength.
He has made the whole world so sure *
that it cannot be moved;
Ever since the world began, your throne has been established; *
you are from everlasting.
The waters have lifted up, O Lord, the waters have lifted up their voice; *
the waters have lifted up their pounding waves.
Mightier than the sound of many waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea, *
mightier is the Lord who dwells on high.
Your testimonies are very sure, *
and holiness adorns your house, O Lord, for ever and for evermore.
Refrain: You Lord, are from everlasting.
Second reading: Revelation 1.4b-8 (read by Ian Boa)
Gospel: John 18.33-37 (The Rector)
Sermon (The Rector)
Intercessions (David Brown)
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 – CS Lang: Hymntune Prelude on St Columba
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.
