The Lord be with you.

And also with you.


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.




An alternative Confession may be used.


Father eternal, giver of light and grace,

we have sinned against you and against our neighbour,

in what we have thought,

in what we have said and done,

through ignorance, through weakness,

through our own deliberate fault.

We have wounded your love,

and marred your image in us.

We are sorry and ashamed,

and repent of all our sins.

For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,

who died for us,

forgive us all that is past;

and lead us out from darkness

to walk as children of light. Amen.


The minister assures us of Godís forgiveness.


Glory to God in the highest,

and peace to his people on earth.

Lord God, heavenly King,

almighty God and Father,

we worship you, we give you thanks,

we praise you for your glory.


Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,

Lord God, Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world:

have mercy on us;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer.


For you alone are the Holy One,

you alone are the Lord,

you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,

with the Holy Spirit,

in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

The Creed.


We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.


We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one Being with the Father;

through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven,

was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary

and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures;

he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.


We believe in the Holy Spirit,

the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified,

who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.





Lord, in your mercy

hear our prayer.


At the end of the prayers:


Merciful Father,

accept these prayers

for the sake of your Son,

our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.



The Peace, (please stand)


The peace of the Lord be always with you, †††† and also with you.

The Prayer of Thanksgiving.


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.

Father, we give you thanks and praise Ö

... for ever praising you and saying:


Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.


We remember Jesusí Last Supper.


Ö Let us proclaim the mystery of faith:


Christ has died:
Christ is risen:
Christ will come again.


The prayer ends:





The Lordís Prayer:


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.


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.


Jesus, Lamb of God,

have mercy on us.


Jesus bearer of our sins,

have mercy on us.


Jesus redeemer of the world,

grant us peace.


We are invited to share communion.
