Confession

Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith,

firmly resolved to keep God’s commandments

and to live in love and peace with all.

 

Most merciful God,

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

we confess that we have sinned in thought, word and deed.

We have not loved you with our whole heart.

We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves.

In your mercy forgive what we have been,

help us to amend what we are,

and direct what we shall be;

that we may do justly, love mercy,

and walk humbly with you, our God.

Amen.

Lord God, Lamb of God,

We Share Christ’s Peace

We are the body of Christ.

By one Spirit we were baptized into one body.

Let us keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

We are bound by the love of Christ.

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you.

 

Let us offer one another a sign of peace.

 

We Prepare the Table

Blessed be God,

by whose grace creation is renewed,

by whose love heaven is opened,

by whose mercy we offer our sacrifice of praise. 

Blessed be God for ever.

 

The Eucharistic Prayer

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.

 

It is right to praise you, Father, Lord of all creation;

in your love you made us for yourself.

When we turned away you did not reject us,

but came to meet us in your Son.

 

You embraced us as your children and welcomed us to sit and eat with you.

 

In Christ you shared our life that we might live in him and he in us.

 

He opened his arms of love upon the cross and made for all the perfect sacrifice for sin.

 

On the night he was betrayed, at supper with his friends he took bread, and gave you thanks; he broke it and gave it to them, saying: Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me.

 

Father, we do this in remembrance of him:

his body is the bread of life.

 

At the end of supper, taking the cup of wine, he gave you thanks, and said: Drink this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins; do this in remembrance of me.

 

Father, we do this in remembrance of him:

his blood is shed for all.

 

As we proclaim his death and celebrate his rising in glory, send your Holy Spirit that this bread and this wine may be to us the body and blood of your dear Son.

 

As we eat and drink these holy gifts make us one in Christ,

our risen Lord.

 

With your whole Church throughout the world we offer you this sacrifice of praise and lift our voice to join the eternal song of heaven:

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.

 

The Lord’s Prayer

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.

The Bread is Broken

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.

 

Invitation to Communion

Jesus is the Lamb of God

who takes away the sin of the world.

Blessed are those who are called to his supper.

 

Lord, I am not worthy to receive you,

but only say the word, and I shall be healed.

 

 

We Make Our Spiritual Communion

Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ,

for all the benefits you have given me,

for all the pains and insults you have borne for me.

Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,

I ask you to come spiritually into my heart.

O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother,

may I know you more clearly,

love you more dearly,

and follow you more nearly, day by day.

Amen.

Following the Prayer of St Richard of Chichester.

 

Prayer after Communion

Almighty God, we thank you for feeding us

with the body and blood of your Son Jesus Christ.

Through him we offer you our souls and bodies to be a living sacrifice.

Send us out in the power of your Spirit

to live and work to your praise and glory.

Amen.

 

Notices and Banns of Marriage.

 

Blessing

The Lord bless you and watch over you,

the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you,

the Lord look kindly on you and give you peace;

and the blessing of God almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

be with you, now and always.

Amen.

 

Let us go in peace, to love and serve the Lord.

In the name of Christ, Amen.
