Hymn 623 Praise my Soul

 

Praise, my soul, the king of heaven;

To His feet thy tribute bring.

Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,

Who like me His praise should sing?

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Praise the everlasting King!

 

Praise Him for His grace and favour

To our fathers in distress;

Praise Him, still the same forever,

Slow to chide, and swift to bless.

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Glorious in His faithfulness.

 

Father-like, He tends and spares us;

Well our feeble frame He knows;

In His hands He gently bears us,

Rescues us from all our foes.

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Widely as His mercy flows.

 

Angels in the height, adore Him;

Ye behold Him face to face;

Sun and moon, bow down before Him,

Dwellers all in time and space.

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Praise with us the God of grace!

  Henry Frances Lyte

 

 

Leader:   The earth belongs to God,

All:   the earth and all its people.

 

Leader:  How good it is, how wonderful,

All:  To live together in unity.

 

Leader:  Love and faith come together,

All:  Justice and peace join hands.

 

Leader:  If Christ’s disciples keep silent,

All:  These stones would shout aloud.

 

Leader:   O Lord open our lips 

All:   and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

 

Confession 

The grace of God has dawned upon the world with healing for all.

Let us come to him, in sorrow for our sins, seeking healing and salvation.  c/f Titus2:11

 

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.

Silence

 

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

Almighty God,

you have broken the tyranny of sin

and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts

whereby we call you Father:

give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service,

that we and all creation may be brought

to the glorious liberty of the children of God;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

 

 

First Reading:    

Galatians 6: 7-16 NRSV

Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow. If you sow to your own flesh, you will reap corruption from the flesh; but if you sow to the Spirit, you will reap eternal life from the Spirit. So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. 10 So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith.

Final Admonitions and Benediction

11 See what large letters I make when I am writing in my own hand! 12 It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that try to compel you to be circumcised—only that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 Even the circumcised do not themselves obey the law, but they want you to be circumcised so that they may boast about your flesh. 14 May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which[c] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For[d] neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is anything; but a new creation is everything! 16 As for those who will follow this rule—peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

 

  This is the word of the Lord.   

All:     Thanks be to God.

 

Hymn 317

How deep the Father’s love for us,

How vast beyond all measure,

That He should give His only Son

To make a wretch His treasure.

How great the pain of searing loss –

The Father turns His face away,

As wounds which mar the Chosen One

Bring many sons to glory.

 

Behold the man upon a cross,

My sin upon His shoulders;

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice

Call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there

Until it was accomplished;

His dying breath has brought me life –

I know that it is finished.

 

I will not boast in anything,

No gifts, no power, no wisdom;

But I will boast in Jesus Christ,

His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward?

I cannot give an answer;

But this I know with all my heart –

His wounds have paid my ransom.

Luke 10:1-11 + 16-20  NRSV  

The Mission of the Seventy

10 After this the Lord appointed seventy[a] others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. He said to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest. Go on your way. See, I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves. Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, “Peace to this house!” And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you. Remain in the same house, eating and drinking whatever they provide, for the labourer deserves to be paid. Do not move about from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and its people welcome you, eat what is set before you; cure the sick who are there, and say to them, “The kingdom of God has come near to you.”[b] 10 But whenever you enter a town and they do not welcome you, go out into its streets and say, 11 “Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off in protest against you. Yet know this: the kingdom of God has come near.”[c] 

 

16 ‘Whoever listens to you listens to me, and whoever rejects you rejects me, and whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.’

The Return of the Seventy

17 The seventy[d] returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, in your name even the demons submit to us!’ 18 He said to them, ‘I watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning. 19 See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing will hurt you. 20 Nevertheless, do not rejoice at this, that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.’

 

  This is the Gospel of the Lord.    

All:   Praise to you, O Christ.

 

 

Sermon

Prayers

 

 

The Peace    cf John 20.19

  To crown all things there must be love,

  To bind all together and complete the whole.

  Let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts.     cf Col 3: 14

 

  The peace of the Lord be always with you 

All:     and also with you.

 

NOTICE re distribution of HC in both kinds

If staying then the chalice will come as pre-covid.

If you are waiting and someone leaves please DO NOT slip in but wait as if the sanctuary rail was full to avoid any confussion.

 

Hymn 681:

Such love, pure as the whitest snow;

Such love, weeps for the shame I know;

Such love, paying the debt I owe;

O Jesus, such love.

 

Such love, stilling my restlessness;

Such love, filling my emptiness;

Such love, showing me holiness;

O Jesus, such love.

 

Such love, springs from eternity;

Such love, streaming through history;

Such love, fountain of life to me;

O Jesus, such love.

Music plays while the table is prepared   

(For those of our church family who cannot be present with us physically we encourage you to share in the prayer, meditate on the gift and sacrifice of our Lord and know that we are all joined as one in the family of heaven that our communion may also be yours in spirit.

 

The Eucharistic Prayer (D)

The Lord be with you  All: and also with you.

Lift up your hearts.  All: We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All:   It is right to give thanks and praise.

 

Almighty God, good Father to us all, your face is turned towards your world.

In love you gave us Jesus your Son to rescue us from sin and death.

Your Word goes out to call us home to the city where angels sing your praise.

 

We join with them in heaven’s song:

All:   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.

 

Father of all, we give you thanks for every gift that comes from heaven.

To the darkness Jesus came as your light. With signs of faith and words of hope he touched untouchables with love and washed the guilty clean.

This is his story.

All:   This is our song: Hosanna in the highest.

 

The crowds came out to see your Son, yet at the end they turned on him. On the night he was betrayed he came to table with his friends to celebrate the freedom of your people.

This is his story.

All:   This is our song: Hosanna in the highest.

 

Jesus blessed you, Father, for the food; he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and said: This is my body, given for you all.

Jesus then gave thanks for the wine; he took the cup, gave it and said: This is my blood, shed for you all for the forgiveness of sins.
Do this in remembrance of me.

This is our story.

All:   This is our song: Hosanna in the highest.

 

Therefore, Father, with this bread and this cup we celebrate the cross on which he died to set us free. Defying death he rose again
and is alive with you to plead for us and all the world.

This is our story.

All:   This is our song: Hosanna in the highest.

 

Send your Spirit on us now that by these gifts we may feed on Christ with opened eyes and hearts on fire. May we and all who share this food offer ourselves to live for you and be welcomed at your feast in heaven where all creation worships you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit:

All:   Blessing and honour and glory and power
be yours for ever and ever. Amen.

 

 

The Lord’s Prayer         please sit or kneel

All:   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.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever. Amen.

 

 

Breaking of the Bread   The president breaks the consecrated bread.

  Every time we eat this bread and drink this cup,

All:   We proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

 

 

Giving of Communion

  God’s holy gifts for God’s holy people.

All: Jesus Christ is holy,  

  Jesus Christ is Lord,

  To the glory of God the Father.

 

Music plays as the people share in Holy Communion.

The president and people receive communion, first the wafer and then the wine (unless only shared in one kind). Please follow the directions given in your church.

 

The body of Christ keep you in eternal life   All: Amen.

The blood of Christ keep you in eternal life.  All: Amen.

 

Prayer after Communion

Father of all, we give you thanks and praise, that when we were still far off you met us in your Son and brought us home. Dying and living, he declared your love, gave us grace, and opened the gate of glory.

All   May we who share Christ’s body live his risen life;
we who drink his cup bring life to others;

  we whom the Spirit lights give light to the world.
 

Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us, so we and all your children shall be free, and the whole earth live to praise your name; through Christ our Lord.  All   Amen.

 

 

Hymn: 36  

And can it be that I should gain

An interest in the Saviour’s blood?

Died He for me, who caused His pain?

For me, who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! how can it be

That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?  X2

’Tis mystery all! The Immortal dies:

Who can explore His strange design?

In vain the first-born seraph tries

To sound the depths of love divine!

’Tis mercy all! let earth adore,

Let angel minds inquire no more.

He left His Father’s throne above,

So free, so infinite His grace;

Emptied Himself of all but love,

And bled for Adam’s helpless race.

‘Tis mercy all, immense and free;

For, O my God, it found out me.

Long my imprisoned spirit lay

Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;

Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,

I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;

My chains fell off, my heart was free;

I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

No condemnation now I dread;

Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!

Alive in Him, my living Head,

And clothed in righteousness divine,

Bold I approach the eternal throne,

And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

  Charles Wesley

       

Blessing (in this or another form)

 

  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.

 

All:  Filled with the Spirit’s power,

  We go in the light and peace of Christ.
