We are not able to meet to worship together in our church building, but we can all worship together at home.  Here is this week's virtual service:

Ordinary Time

28th June 2020: Third Sunday after Trinity

Hymn:  Amazing Grace


Prayers of Penitence

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son Jesus Christ to save us from our sins, to be our advocate in heaven, and to bring us to eternal life.


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.


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.


Almighty God,
who forgives all who truly repent,
have mercy upon you,
pardon and deliver you from all your sins,
confirm and strengthen you in all goodness,
and keep you in life eternal;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.


Glory to God in the highest,
and peace to his people on earth.
Lord God, heavenly King,
almighty God and Father,
we worship you, we give you thanks,
we praise you for your glory.
Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,
Lord God, Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world:
have mercy on us;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father:
receive our prayer.
For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father.
Amen.
 

The Collect for the Third Sunday after Trinity

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.

Amen.

Liturgy of the Word 

Readings: Jeremiah 28:5-9; Psalm 89:1-4,15-18; Romans 6:12-end; Matthew 10:40-end


Psalm: 89



Sermon


The Creed 
We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is,
seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
 
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.
Amen.

Intercessions:

Let us pray that God's Kingdom would come on earth and in particular in our nation and in our community.  let us pray for healing of hurts, the establishment of justice and equity, community cohesion and peace.

Let us pray for God's Church throughout the world that we would each continue in the way of discipleship dedicating our freedom to God's service. Pray that we would all grow in Christ-like character and in our willingness and ability to partake in the ministry and mission of Jesus here on earth.

Let us pray especially at this Peter-tide for all who are called to ordained ministry that those whom God is calling would heed his call and offer themselves for service.  Pray particularly for those who were to be ordained this weekend and whose ordination has had to be post-poned.  Please pray for all clergy and lay ministers for holiness of life, soundness of doctrine, and a sense of God's presence and guidance.

Let us pray for all whom we know need God's healing, comfort and grace at this time.

Let us pray for all who are bereaved as we remember those who have died, especially this week for William Beattie (father of Angus).


Liturgy of the Sacrament:

The Peace

God has made us one in Christ.

He has set his seal upon us and, as a pledge of what is to come, has given the Spirit to dwell in our hearts. Alleluia. 

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you.


I invite you now share the peace with those who are with you or to text, or message or email someone you know with the words "peace be with you".


Anthem: 


Be present, be present,

Lord Jesus Christ,

our risen high priest;

make yourself known in the breaking of bread.

Amen.


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.


Agnus Dei


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.                                                                       after the Prayer of St Richard of Chichester


O God, whose beauty is beyond our imagining and whose power we cannot comprehend:

show us your glory as far as we can grasp it,

and shield us from knowing more than we can bear

until we may look upon you without fear;

through Jesus Christ our Saviour

Amen.


The Blessing

The peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lordand the blessing of God almighty,

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be among you and remain with you always.

Amen.
