Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing. God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before Him in love. Come, let us worship the Lord and give thanks for what He has done.


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 inspiring of Your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love You, and worthily magnify Your holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen!

HYMN:       179       “Praise with Joy the World’s Creator


Eternal and loving God, Lord of heaven and earth, we praise You for Your greatness. Your wisdom is seen in all Your works. Your grace and truth are revealed in Jesus Christ Your Son. Your presence and power are given to us through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, blessed Trinity, we worship and adore You for ever and ever. Amen!


Lord, You have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.

Before the mountains were born or You brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting You are God.

You turn men back to dust, saying, “Return to dust, O sons of men”.

For a thousand years in Your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.

You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like new grass of the morning ¾

though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered.

Relent, O Lord! How long will it be? Have compassion on Your servants.

Satisfy us this morning with Your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

Make us glad for as many days as You have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.

May Your deeds be shown to Your servants, Your splendour to their children.

May the favour of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us ¾

Yes, establish the work of our hands.                                 Psalm 90:1-6, 13-17

HYMN:       452       “God of Mercy, God of Grace


Come to us God of unity. Come with Your forgiveness and Your healing grace. Come, that we may be witness to reconciliation in a divided world; that we may gather around Christ’s table as one people; that we may affirm one Church, one faith, one Lord.

Come to us, God of unity.

Come to us God of hope. Come to us with Your promises. Come in Your mysterious presence. Come, that we may marvel at Your faithfulness in past generations; that we may celebrate the new things You are doing among us today; that we may be your pilgrim people on our journey to Your kingdom.

Come to us, God of hope. Amen.


In penitence and faith, let us confess our sins to almighty God. (Silence)

Let us pray:

Merciful God, our maker and our judge, we have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed; we have not loved You with our whole heart, we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves; we repent, and are sorry for all our sins.

Father, forgive us. Strengthen us to love and obey You in newness of life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.

HYMN:       613       “Lord of All Hopelessness, Lord of All Joy


God’s Spirit has given us life. Let us follow the Spirit and greet one another with the life-giving peace of Jesus Christ.

The peace of the Christ be with you. And also with you.


Thank You, Father, for making Yourself known to us and showing us the way of salvation through faith in Your Son. Teach us through Your word and equip us for every good work, for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
