May all the earth give you worship and praise, and break into song to your name, O God, Most High. (Psalm 65:4)

 

My dear friends in Christ, we come together this morning into the presence of Almighty God, our heavenly Father to give thanks for wonderful gift of his sacraments.

 

As we meet in broken bread and wine outpoured, we seek to encounter the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the whole world.

 

We pray therefore for the life, work and witness of this parish, praying that God can be proclaimed throughout this place and that more may be brought to encounter him through these sacred mysteries.

 

The grace of God has dawned upon the world
through our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who sacrificed himself for us to purify a people as his own.
Let us therefore confess our sins.

 

I confess…

 

 

The Collect

Let us pray

 

Father of heaven and earth,
hear our prayers,
and show us the way to peace in the world.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.
Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heavens!

 

All    Alleluia.

 

The Peace

 

Our Saviour Christ is the Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there shall be no end.

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you


 

Prayer after Communion

 

Lord,
you have nourished us with bread from heaven.
Fill us with your Spirit,
and make us one in peace and love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
