Hymn: TiS 457

1. The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord: she is his new creation by water and the word; from heaven he came and sought her to be his holy bride; with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.

4. Through toil and tribulation and tumult of her war she waits the consummation of peace for evermore, till with the vision glorious her longing eyes are blessed, and the great church victorious shall be the church at rest.

2. Elect from every nation yet one o’er all the earth, her charter of salvation one Lord, one faith, one birth: one holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food, and to one hope she presses with every grace endued.

5. Yet she on earth has union with God the Three in One, and mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won. O happy ones and holy! Lord, give to us the grace like them, the meek and lowly, in heaven to seek your face.


Greeting: The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU.

(see Ruth 2:4)

Sentence: The greatest among you will be your servant. All who exalt themselves will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted. Matthew 23.11-12

Prayer of Preparation: As we gather as God's people let us pray together: 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.

The Summary of the Commandments: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ Jesus said: ‘This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: you shall love your neighbour as yourself.’


Kyrie eleison (Dudman)

The Confession Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith, confident in God's forgiveness. Merciful God, our maker and our judge, we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, and in what we have failed to do: 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 Absolution{Celebrant} Almighty God, who has promised forgiveness to all who turn to him in faith: pardon you and set you free from all your sins, strengthen you in all goodness and keep you in eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 4



Prayer of the Day Creator God, you have filled the world with beauty: open our eyes to behold your gracious hand in all your works, that, rejoicing in your whole creation, we may learn to serve you with gladness, for the sake of him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD Readings from 'New Revised Standard Version' (NRSV) First Reading: Joshua 3:7-17 7 The Lord said to Joshua, "This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, so that they may know that I will be with you as I was with Moses. 8 You are the one who shall command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, 'When you come to the edge of the waters of the Jordan, you shall stand still in the Jordan.' " 9 Joshua then said to the Israelites, "Draw near and hear the words of the Lord your God." 10 Joshua said, "By this you shall know that among you is the living God who without fail will drive out from before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites, and Jebusites: 11 the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is going to pass before you into the Jordan. 12 So now select twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one from each tribe. 13 When the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan flowing from above shall be cut off; they shall stand in a single heap." 14 When the people set out from their tents to cross over the Jordan, the priests bearing the ark of the covenant were in front of the people. 15 Now the Jordan overflows all its banks throughout the time of harvest. So when those who bore the ark had come to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests bearing the ark were dipped in the edge of the water, 16 the waters flowing from above stood still, rising up in a single heap far off at Adam, the city that is beside Zarethan, while those flowing toward the sea of the Arabah, the Dead Sea, were wholly cut off. Then the people crossed over opposite Jericho. 6

17 While all Israel were crossing over on dry ground, the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan, until the entire nation finished crossing over the Jordan. Response:

Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD

Psalm: 107:1-7,33-37 1 O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good: for his loving mercy is for ever. 2 Let the Lord's redeemed say so: whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, 3 And gathered in from every land, from the east and from the west: from the north and from the south. 4 Some went astray in the wilderness and in the desert: and found no path to an inhabited city; 5 They were hungry and thirsty: and their heart fainted within them. 6 Then they cried to the Lord in their distress: and he took them out of their trouble. 7 He led them by the right path: till they came to an inhabited city. 33 He turns the rivers into desert: and springs of water into thirsty ground. 34 He makes of a fruitful land a salty waste: because its inhabitants are evil. 35 He turns the wilderness into a pool of water: and parched ground into flowing springs. 36 And there he settles the hungry: and they build a city to live in. 37 They sow fields and plant vineyards: which give them fruitful harvest.


Second Reading: 1 Thessalonians 3:5-13 5 For this reason, when I could bear it no longer, I sent to find out about your faith; I was afraid that somehow the tempter had tempted you and that our labour had been in vain. 6 But Timothy has just now come to us from you, and has brought us the good news of your faith and love. He has told us also that you always remember us kindly and long to see us--just as we long to see you. 7 For this reason, brothers and sisters, during all our distress and persecution we have been encouraged about you through your faith. 8 For we now live, if you continue to stand firm in the Lord. 9 How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy that we feel before our God because of you? 10 Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you face to face and restore whatever is lacking in your faith. 11 Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus direct our way to you. 12 And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, just as we abound in love for you. 13 And may he so strengthen your hearts in holiness that you may be blameless before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints. Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD


Gradual Hymn: TiS 616

1. O day of God, draw near in beauty and in power, come with your timeless judgment now to match our present hour.

4. Bring to our world of strife your sovereign word of peace, that war may haunt the earth no more and desolation cease.

2. Bring to our troubled minds, uncertain and afraid, the quiet of a steadfast faith, calm of a call obeyed.

5. O day of God, draw near as at creation’s birth; let there be light again, and set your justice in the earth.

3. Bring justice to our land that all may dwell secure, and firmly build for days to come foundations that endure.


We stand for the reading of the Holy Gospel as a sign of respect as we greet our Lord who is present in His Holy Word. The Lord be with you AND ALSO WITH YOU The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, according to Saint Matthew chapter 23 beginning at the 1st verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 23:1 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, 2 "The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat; 3 therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it; but do not do as they do, for they do not practice what they teach. 4 They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on the shoulders of others; but they themselves are unwilling to lift a finger to move them. 5 They do all their deeds to be seen by others; for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long. 6 They love to have the place of honour at banquets and the best seats in the synagogues, 7 and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, and to have people call them rabbi. 8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all students. 9 And call no one your father on earth, for you have one Father--the one in heaven. 10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Messiah. 11 The greatest among you will be your servant. 12 All who exalt themselves will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted. 37 "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! 38 See, your house is left to you, desolate. 39 For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, 'Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.' " Gospel Response: This is the gospel of the Lord, PRAISE TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST.

ALLELUIA Sung by Choir & Congregation 10


THE NICENE CREED Let us together affirm the faith of the Church. 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 of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and became truly human. 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. 11

THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE Let us pray for all people and for the Church throughout the world. Each petition of intercession or thanksgiving concludes with, Lord in your mercy, HEAR OUR PRAYER.

We pray for: We pray for all who work for peace and justice. We pray for: The Diocese of Toungoo, Myanmar; Mission Agencies of the Anglican Church of Australia; Hume Anglican Grammar School; St Mary’s North Melbourne; and our Bishops Philip and Barbara. We pray for those in need, and for those who care for them: Judy S, Nancy K, Leonie M, Enid B, Geoffrey M, Henry J, Margaret Y, Michael H, Faye H, Jan N, Miriam A, Jean S, Lowan A, Robert D, Mia C, Jan T, Ray C, Peter Hs, John & Jean H and those we remember in our own hearts and prayers. We pray for the members of Holy Trinity not able to worship with us, Howard D, John H, Nancy K, Margaret D, Hilary & Bill H, Joyce L, Elisabeth D, Lorna M, Jean D and Gwlad W and all who care for them.

Almighty God, you have promised to hear our prayers. Grant that what we have asked in faith We may by your grace receive, Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. THE GREETING OF PEACE {Celebrant}

(all stand)

We are the body of Christ. His Spirit is with us. The peace of the Lord be always with you. And also with you.


Offertory Hymn: TiS 585

1. I heard the voice of Jesus say, ‘Come unto me and rest; lay down, O weary one, lay down your head upon my breast.’ I came to Jesus as I was, weary and worn and sad; I found in him a resting-place, and he has made me glad.

3. I heard the voice of Jesus say, ‘I am this dark world’s light; look unto me, your morn shall rise, and all your day be bright.’ I looked to Jesus, and I found in him my star, my sun; and in that light of life I’ll walk till travelling days are done.

2. I heard the voice of Jesus say, ‘Behold, I freely give the living water; thirsty one, stoop down and drink and live.’ I came to Jesus, and I drank of that life-giving stream; my thirst was quenched, my soul revived, and now I live in him.


Offertory Prayer: Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation. Through your goodness we have these gifts to share. Accept and use our offerings for your glory and for the service of your kingdom. BLESSED BE GOD FOR EVER.

Priest: in songs of never ending praise:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen. 16


We break this bread to share in the body of Christ. We who are many are one body, For we all share in the one bread.

Communion wine may be received: (a) from the common cup from the first of the two Eucharistic Assistants. (b) by intinction from the second of the Eucharistic Assistants where a small part of the wafer is carefully dipped in the wine, or (c) from an individual glass on request from the first Eucharistic Assistant. Or you may choose to receive the wafer only (Communion in one kind).

The Choir Sings “Ego Sum Panis Vivus�, Palestrina. THE SENDING OUT OF GOD'S PEOPLE Post-Communion Prayer Prayer of self-offering Father, we offer ourselves to you as a living sacrifice through Jesus Christ our Lord. Send us out in the power of your Spirit to live and work to your praise and glory. AMEN


Final Hymn: TiS 601

1. O Master, let me walk with thee in lowly paths of service free; thy secret tell; help me to bear the strain of toil, the fret of care. 2. Help me the slow of heart to move by some clear winning word of love; teach me the wayward feet to stay and guide them in the homeward way.

3. Teach me thy patience; still with thee in closer, dearer company, in work that keeps faith sweet and strong, in trust that triumphs over wrong, 4. in hope that sends a shining ray far down the future’s broadening way, in peace that only thou canst give, with thee, O Master, let me live.


Dismissal Go in peace to love and serve the Lord: IN THE NAME OF CHRIST. AMEN
