Alleluia, Alleluia, give thanks to the risen Lord,

Now we shall live forever.

Life for all men, alleluia!

Joyfully sing to our Saviour.

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Introduction

Almighty God, our heavenly Father,
we have sinned against you and against our neighbour,
in thought and word and deed,
through negligence, through weakness,
through our own deliberate fault.
We are truly sorry 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 grant that we may serve you in newness of life
to the glory of your name. Amen

Absolution

The Collect prayer for the Sixth Sunday after Trinity

Merciful God,
you have prepared for those who love you
such things as pass our understanding.
Pour into our hearts such love towards you
that we, loving you in all things and above all things,
may obtain your promises
which exceed all that we can desire,
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. Amen

Talk
by Revd Steve Bishop

Grace, mercy and peace from our God our father
and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

Lord, everything in heaven and earth is yours.
All things come from you and of your own do we give you.

The Lord’s 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.

Eternal God,
the light of the minds that know you,
the joy of the hearts that love you,
and the strength of the wills that serve you:
grant us so to know you that we may truly love you,
so to love you that we may truly serve you,
whose service is perfect freedom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Lord Jesus,
Give us your light in our eyes,
your word on our lips,
and your love in our hearts.
Send us out in the power of your Spirit,
to live and work to your praise and glory. Amen

Blessing

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
In the name of Christ. Amen.

We have a gospel to proclaim,
good news for all throughout the earth;
the gospel of a Saviour’s name:
we sing his glory, tell his worth.

Tell of his birth at Bethlehem,
not in a royal house or hall
but in a stable dark and dim:
the Word made flesh, a light for all.

Tell of his death at Calvary,
hated by those he came to save;
in lonely suffering on the cross
for all he loved, his life he gave.

Tell of that glorious Easter morn:
empty the tomb, for he was free;
he broke the power of death and hell
that we might share his victory.

Tell of his reign at God’s right hand
by all creation glorified;
he sends his Spirit on his church
to live for him, the Lamb who died.

Now we rejoice to name him King:
Jesus is Lord of all the earth;
this gospel message we proclaim:
we sing his glory, tell his worth.
