All:        Justice and peace join hands.

Hymn:     453 Lord enthroned in heavenly splendour                                          

Lord, enthroned in heav’nly splendour,

First-begotten from the dead,

Thou alone, our strong Defender,

Liftest up Thy people’s head.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Jesus, true and living Bread.


Here our humblest homage pay we,

Here in loving rev’rence bow;

Here for faith’s discernment pray we,

Lest we fail to know Thee now.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou art here, we ask not how.


Though the lowliest form doth veil Thee

As of old in Bethlehem,

Here as there Thine angels hail Thee

Branch and Flower of Jesse’s stem.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

We in worship join with them.


Paschal Lamb, Thine off’ring, finished

Once for all when Thou wast slain,

In its fulness undiminished

Shall forever more remain,

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Cleansing souls from every stain.


Life-imparting, heav’nly Manna,

Stricken Rock with streaming side,

Heaven and earth with loud hosanna

Worship Thee, the Lamb who died,

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Ris’n, ascended, glorified!

George Hugh Bourne



Leader:   Holy God, maker of all

All:        Have mercy on us.


              Jesus Christ, servant of the poor

All:        Have mercy on us.


              Holy Spirit, Breath of life.

All:        Have mercy on us.


Let us in silence confess our faults and admit our frailty.



All:        Before God, with the people of God,

              We confess to our brokenness:

              To the ways we wound our lives,

              The lives of others,

              And the life of the world.


Leader:   May God forgive us all, Christ renew us all,

              And the Spirit of God enable us to grow in love.

All:        Amen.



The Collect ( a gathering prayer for the day)


O God, you declare your almighty power

Most chiefly in showing mercy and pity:

Mercifully grant to us such a measure of your grace,

That we, running the way of your commandments,

May receive your gracious promises,

And be made partakers of your heavenly treasure;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord,

Who is alive and reigns with you,

In the unity of the Holy Spirit,

One God, now and forever. Amen.


Readings:                                                                        sit for the reading

Ephesians 5: 15-20            ©NRSV

 15 Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, 16 making the most of the time, because the days are evil. 17 So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit, 19 as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, 20 giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

              This is the word of the Lord.                    

All:               Thanks be to God.


John 6: 51-58              © NRSV

51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.’

52 The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ 53 So Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; 55 for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. 56 Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. 57 Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live for ever.’

              This is the word of the Lord.                    

All:               Thanks be to God.


Hymn or song     387 Jesus is Lord


Jesus is Lord! Creation’s voice proclaims it,

For by His power each tree and flower

Was planned and made.

Jesus is Lord! The universe declares it,

Sun, moon and stars in heaven

Cry, ‘Jesus is Lord!’


Jesus is Lord! Jesus is Lord!

Praise Him with hallelujahs

For Jesus is Lord!


Jesus is Lord! Yet from His throne eternal

In flesh He came to die in pain

On Calv’ry’s tree.

Jesus is Lord! From Him all life proceeding,

Yet gave His life as ransom

Thus setting us free.


Jesus is Lord! O’er sin the mighty conqu’ror,

From death He rose, and all His foes

Shall own His name.

Jesus is Lord! God sends His Holy Spirit

To show by works of power

That Jesus is Lord.

David J Mansell ©Authentic Publishing

Prayers  (end with Lord’s Prayer)


We say the Lord’s Prayer together

              Hallowed be your name,

              Your kingdom come,

              Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,

              Give us today our daily bread,

              Forgive us our sins,

              As we forgive those who sin against us,

              Save us in the time of trial

              And deliver us from evil,

              For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and forever. Amen.

Hymn or song 627     Praise to the Holiest


Praise to the holiest in the height,

And in the depth be praise;

In all his words most wonderful,

Most sure in all his ways.


O loving wisdom of our God!

When all was sin and shame,

A second Adam to the fight

And to the rescue came.

O wisest love! That flesh and blood,

Which did in Adam fail,

Should strive afresh against the foe,

Should strive and should prevail;


And that a higher gift than grace

Should flesh and blood refine,

God’s presence and his very self,

And essence all-divine.


And in the garden secretly,

And on the cross on high,

Should teach his brethren, and inspire

To suffer and to die.


Praise to the holiest in the height,

And in the depth be praise;

In all his words most wonderful,

Most sure in all his ways.

John Henry Newman




Leader:   This is the day that the Lord has made;

All:        We will rejoice and be glad in it.


Leader:   We will not offer to God

All:        Offerings that cost us nothing.     


This or another Blessing or the Grace:


              Christ the Good Shepherd,

              Who laid down his life for the sheep,

              Draw you and all who hear his voice,

              To be one flock within one fold;

              And the blessing of God Almighty

              The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

              Be with you and remain with you always,   Amen.


OR         The Grace

      May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, now and evermore.       Amen.

All:        Filled with the Spirit’s power,

              We go in the light and peace of Christ.
