WORDS FOR SUNDAY

Here are the words we will use on YouTube at 9.00am.

The Gathering

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

Amen.

 

The Lord be with you

and also with you.

 

Hymn

All Heaven Declares

The glory of the risen Lord.

Who can compare

With the beauty of the Lord?

Forever he will be

The Lamb upon the throne.

I gladly bow the knee

And worship him alone.

 

I will proclaim

The glory of the risen Lord.

Who once was slain

To reconcile us to God.

Forever You will be

The Lamb upon the throne.

I gladly bow the knee

And worship You alone.

 

Prayers of Penitence

Please sit as we bring to mind those occasions we have fallen short.

 

God so loved the world

that he gave his only Son Jesus Christ to save us from our sins,

to be our advocate in heaven,

and to bring us to eternal life.

Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith,

firmly resolved to keep God's commandments

and to live in love and peace with all.

 

Most merciful God,

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

we confess that we have sinned in thought, word and deed.

We have not loved you with our whole heart.

We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves.

In your mercy forgive what we have been,

help us to amend what we are,

and direct what we shall be;

that we may do justly, love mercy,

and walk humbly with you, our God.

Amen.

We receive God’s forgiveness with the following words:

 

May God who loved the world so much

that he sent his Son to be our Saviour

forgive us our sins and make us holy to serve him in the world,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

Glory to God, we give you thanks and praise;

of heavenly joy and earthly peace we sing.

We worship you, to you our hearts we raise,

Lord God, almighty Father, heav'nly King.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, the Father's only Son,

you bore for us the load of this world's sin.

O Lamb of God, your glorious vict'ry won,

receive our pray'r, grant us your peace within.

 

The Collect

Father in heaven,
whose Son Jesus Christ was wonderfully transfigured
before chosen witnesses upon the holy mountain,
and spoke of the exodus he would accomplish at Jerusalem:
give us strength so to hear his voice and bear our cross
that in the world to come we may see him as he is;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

 

The Liturgy of the Word

For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received honour and glory from God the Father when that voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory, saying, ‘This is my Son, my Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.’ We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven, while we were with him on the holy mountain.

So we have the prophetic message more fully confirmed. You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

2 Peter 1.16–19

This is the word of the Lord.  Thanks be to God.

Hymn

O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed;

 

Chorus  Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
    How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
    How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

 

When through the woods and forest glades I wander
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
and hear the brook, and feel he gentle breeze;

 

Chorus

 

And when I think that God His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die - I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin:

 

Chorus

 

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home- what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

 

Chorus

 

Gospel

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke

Glory to you, O Lord.

 

Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 

 

Now Peter and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but since they had stayed awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. Just as they were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, ‘Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah’—not knowing what he said. While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the cloud. Then from the cloud came a voice that said, ‘This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!’ When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things they had seen.

 

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, O Christ.

 

Sermon

Please sit as we listen to the sermon.

 

The Creed

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.

 

Prayers of Intercession

 

We sit or kneel as we pray for our community, and for the world.

The prayers may include one of the following responses:

 

Lord, in your mercy     or     Lord, hear us.

hear our prayer.         Lord, graciously hear us.

 

Merciful Father

accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour,

Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

The Liturgy of the Sacrament

We all share in the peace of God; introduced by the following words, or a

suitable alternative:

 

Blessed are the peacemakers:

they shall be called children of God.

We meet in the name of Christ and share his peace.

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you.

 

Hymn

Mine eyes have seen the glory
of the coming of the Lord;
he is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath are stored;
he hath loosed the fateful lightning
of his terrible swift sword;
his truth is marching on.

Refrain:    Glory, glory, hallelujah!
      Glory, glory, hallelujah!
      Glory, glory, hallelujah!
      His truth is marching on.

I have seen him in the watchfires
of a hundred circling camps,
they have gilded him an altar
in the evening dews and damps;
I can read his righteous sentence
by the dim and flaring lamps;
his day is marching on.

 

Refrain

He has sounded forth the trumpet
that shall never call retreat;
he is sifting out the hearts of men
before his judgment seat;
O be swift, my soul, to answer him;
be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.


Refrain

In the beauty of the lilies
Christ was born across the sea,
with a glory in his bosom
that transfigures you and me;
as he died to make men holy,
let us live that all be free,
whilst God is marching on.


Refrain

During this song the table is prepared and bread and wine are placed on it.

 

The Liturgy

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation:

through your goodness we have this bread to set before you,

which earth has given and human hands have made.

It will become for us the bread of life.

Blessed be God for ever.

       

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation:

through your goodness we have this wine to set before you,

fruit of the vine and work of human hands.

It will become for us the cup of salvation.

Blessed be God for ever.

 

The Lord is here.

His Spirit is with us.

 

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

 

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give thanks and praise.

 

It is right to praise you, Father, Lord of all creation;

in your love you made us for yourself.

       

When we turned away

you did not reject us,

but came to meet us in your Son.

You embraced us as your children

and welcomed us to sit and eat with you.

       

In Christ you shared our life

that we might live in him and he in us.

 

He opened his arms of love upon the cross

and made for all the perfect sacrifice for sin.

 

On the night he was betrayed,

at supper with his friends

he took bread, and gave you thanks;

he broke it and gave it to them, saying:

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

do this in remembrance of me.

 

Father, we do this in remembrance of him:

his body is the bread of life.

       

At the end of supper, taking the cup of wine,

he gave you thanks, and said:

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

which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins;

do this in remembrance of me.

 

Father, we do this in remembrance of him:

his blood is shed for all.

       

As we proclaim his death and celebrate his rising in glory,

send your Holy Spirit that this bread and this wine

may be to us the body and blood of your dear Son.

       

As we eat and drink these holy gifts

make us one in Christ, our risen Lord.

       

With your whole Church throughout the world

we offer you this sacrifice of praise

and lift our voice to join the eternal song of heaven:

 

Holy, holy, holy Lord,

God of power and might

Heaven and earth are full of your glory

Hosanna in the highest

 

As our Saviour taught us, so we pray:

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done;

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who 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.

 

Breaking of the Bread

The president breaks the consecrated bread.

 

We break this bread

to share in the body of Christ.

Though we are many, we are one body,

because we all share in one bread.

 

Agnus Dei

This might be sung to the tune of Dear Lord and Father of Mankind

 

O Lamb of God, come cleanse our hearts

And take our sin away

O Lamb of God, your grace impart

And let our guilty fear depart,

Have mercy, Lord we pray.

 

Jesus is the Lamb of God

who takes away the sin of the world.

Blessed are those who are called to his supper.

Lord, I am not worthy to receive you,

but only say the word, and I shall be healed.

 

The president and people receive communion.

 

Prayer after Communion

Lord God, the source of truth and love,
keep us faithful to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship,
united in prayer and the breaking of bread,
and one in joy and simplicity of heart,
in Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Almighty God,

we thank you for feeding us

with the body and blood of your Son Jesus Christ.

Through him we offer you our souls and bodies

to be a living sacrifice.

Send us out in the power of your Spirit

to live and work to your praise and glory.

Amen.

 

Notices

We hear about some of the things that are going on within the life of the

church. Details of these are usually also on the pew sheet.

 

Hymn

To God be the glory, great things He hath done;

So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,

Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,

And opened the life gate that all may go in.

 

Refrain  Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

    Let the earth hear His voice!

    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

    Let the people rejoice!

    O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,

    And give Him the glory, great things He hath done.

 

O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,

To every believer the promise of God;

The vilest offender who truly believes,

That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

 

Refrain

 

Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,

And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;

But purer, and higher, and greater will be

Our wonder, our rapture, when Jesus we see.

 

Refrain

 

The Dismissal

The peace of God,

which passes 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 Spirit,

be among you all and remain with you always.

Amen.

 

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

In the name of Christ. Amen.
