Words for the Service

We pray the prayer of preparation together:

Almighty God, unto whom all hearts be open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid: cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love thee, and worthily magnify thy holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Confession

This is a kyrie confession so just repeat the last line of each part after me:

Lord Jesus, you raise us to new life.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord Jesus, you forgive us our sins.

Christ, have mercy.

Christ, have mercy.

Lord Jesus, you feed us with the living bread.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

May the God of love

bring us back to himself,

forgive us our sins,

and assure us of his eternal love

in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Collect Trinity Sunday

Holy God,

faithful and unchanging:

enlarge our minds with the knowledge of your truth,

and draw us more deeply into the mystery of your love,

that we may truly worship you,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Amen.

The Creed

Song: ‘This I Believe’ led by Susie

This I Believe (The Creed)

Our Father, everlasting, the all creating One

God Almighty

Through your Holy Spirit, conceiving Christ, the Son

Jesus, our Saviour

 

I believe in God our Father

I believe in Christ, the Son

I believe in the Holy Spirit

Our God is three in one

I believe in the resurrection

That we will rise again

For I believe in the name of Jesus

 

Our judge and our defender, suffered and crucified

Forgiveness is in you

Descended into darkness, you rose in glorious life

Forever seated high

 

I believe in God our Father

I believe in Christ, the Son

I believe in the Holy Spirit

Our God is three in one

I believe in the resurrection

That we will rise again

For I believe in the name of Jesus

 

I believe in you, I believe you rose again

I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord

I believe in you, I believe you rose again

I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord

 

I believe in life eternal

I believe in the virgin birth

I believe in the saints communion

And in your holy church

I believe in the resurrection

When Jesus comes again

For I believe in the name of Jesus

 

I believe in God our Father

I believe in Christ, the Son

I believe in the Holy Spirit

Our God is three in one

I believe in the resurrection

That we will rise again

For I believe in the name of Jesus

For I believe in the name of Jesus

For I believe in the name of Jesus

Readings

Matthew 28:16-20

16 But the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:

20 teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

2 Corinthians 13:11-14

11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfected; be comforted; be of the same mind; live in peace: and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

12 Salute one another with a holy kiss.

13 All the saints salute you.

14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
