Hymn

 

Invitation to confession

St Paul says
'Be imitators of God;
love as Christ loved;
do not grieve the Holy Spirit;
put away all anger and bitterness,
all slander and malice.'
So let us confess our sins to God
who forgives us in Christ.

 

Confession

God our Father,
we come to you in sorrow for our sins.

For turning away from you,
and ignoring your will for our lives;
Father, forgive us:

          save us and help us.

For behaving just as we wish,
without thinking of you;
Father, forgive us:

          save us and help us.

For failing you by what we do,
and think and say;
Father, forgive us:

          save us and help us.

For letting ourselves be drawn away from you
by temptations in the world about us;
Father, forgive us:

          save us and help us.

For living as if we were ashamed
to belong to your Son;
Father, forgive us:

          save us and help us.

    

Absolution

May the Lord enrich us with his grace,
and nourish us with his blessing;
the Lord defend us in trouble                                                                            

and keep us from all evil;
the Lord accept our prayers,
and absolve us from our offences,
for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Saviour.

          Amen.

 

Thanksgiving

 

          Almighty God, Father of all mercies,
          we your unworthy servants

          give you most humble and hearty thanks

          for all your goodness and loving kindness.
          We bless you for our creation, preservation,                                                

          and all the blessings of this life;
          but above all for your immeasurable love
          in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ,                            

          for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
          And give us, we pray, such a sense of all your mercies                             

          that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful,                                               

          and that we show forth your praise,
          not only with our lips but in our lives,
          by giving up ourselves to your service,
          and by walking before you in holiness and
          righteousness all our days;
          through Jesus Christ our Lord,
          to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,
          be all honour and glory,
          for ever and ever. Amen.

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.

Concluding with The Lords Prayer

 

          Our Father, which art in heaven,
          hallowed be thy name;
          thy kingdom come; thy will be done,
          in earth as it is in heaven.
          Give us this day our daily bread.
          And forgive us our trespasses,
          as we forgive them that 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.

Concluding Prayer

Gracious God, 
you have given us much today;
grant us also a thankful spirit.
Into your hands we commend ourselves
and those we love.

          In darkness and in light,
          in trouble and in joy,
          help us, heavenly Father,
          to trust your love,
          to serve your purpose,
          and to praise your name;
          through Jesus Christ our Lord.
