All: Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hidden: cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Confession

Lord, we are sorry for the things we have done that have been selfish

All: Father, forgive us

We are sorry for things we have said that have hurt others

All: Father, forgive us

We are sorry for not always loving others as we should

All: Father, forgive us

Please fill us with your Holy Spirit and help us to be more like Jesus every day

All: Amen

Absolution

May almighty God, who sent his Son into the world to save sinners, bring us his pardon and peace, now and for ever.

All: Amen 

Collect 

Heavenly Lord

You long for the world’s salvation

Stir us from apathy

Restrain us from excess

And revive in us new hope

That all creation will one day be healed

In Jesus Christ our Lord

Amen

Song – Good News!

Good news! Jesus is born

Good news! He died on the cross

Good news! He rose again

Good news! He’s coming back soon!

God sent Jesus, his only Son

To save me from my sin, he’s the only one

Who can change my heart, and make me his own

He saved me, he loves me, my heart is his home

Song – God forgave my sin

God forgave my sin in Jesus’ name

I’ve been born again in Jesus’ name

And in Jesus’ name I come to you

To share his love as he told me to

He said, ‘Freely, freely, you have received

Freely, freely, give

Go in my name, and because you believe

Others will know that I live’

All power is given in Jesus’ name

In earth and heaven in Jesus’ name

And in Jesus’ name I come to you

To share his power as he told me to

Closing prayer

Keep us, Father, in this community of faith the Church of your Son, Jesus Christ and help us to confess him as Messiah and Lord in all we say and do

We ask this in his name

Amen

Dismissal

We go into the world

To share God’s love and grow as God’s people

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord

In the name of Christ,

Amen
