Hymn: TiS 182

1. Bring many names, beautiful and good, celebrate, in parable and story, holiness in glory, living, loving God. Hail and hosanna! bring many names!

4. Old, aching God, grey with endless care, calmly piercing evil’s new disguises, glad of good surprises, wiser than despair: Hail and hosanna, old, aching God!

2. Strong mother God, working night and day, planning all the wonders of creation, setting each equation, genius at play: Hail and hosanna, strong mother God!

5. Young, growing God, eager, on the move, saying no to falsehood and unkindness, crying out for justice, giving all you have: Hail and hosanna, young, growing God!

3. Warm father God, hugging every child, feeling all the strains of human living, caring and forgiving till we’re reconciled: Hail and hosanna, warm father God!

6. Great, living God, never fully known, joyful darkness far beyond our seeing, closer yet than breathing, everlasting home: Hail and hosanna, great, living God! 3


The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU.

(see Ruth 2:4)

Sentence: A great prophet has arisen among us! God has visited his people! Luke 7.16 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



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


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.





Prayer of the Day Everliving God, your Son, Jesus Christ, healed the lepers and brought good news to the despised and outcast: grant us your gifts of compassion and self-control, that in serving others in their need we may strive for the imperishable wreath that you bestow on all who truly love you; through 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: 2 Kings 5:1-14 1

Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Aram, was a great man and in high favor with his master, because by him the LORD had given victory to Aram. The man, though a mighty warrior, suffered from leprosy. 2 Now the Arameans on one of their raids had taken a young girl captive from the land of Israel, and she served Naaman's wife. 3 She said to her mistress, "If only my lord were with the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy." 4 So Naaman went in and told his lord just what the girl from the land of Israel had said. 5 And the king of Aram said, "Go then, and I will send along a letter to the king of Israel." He went, taking with him ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold, and ten sets of garments. 6 He brought the letter to the king of Israel, which read, "When this letter reaches you, know that I have sent to you my servant Naaman, that you may cure him of his leprosy." 7 When the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his clothes and said, "Am I God, to give death or life, that this man sends word to me to cure a man of his leprosy? Just look and see how he is trying to pick a quarrel with me." 7


But when Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his clothes, he sent a message to the king, "Why have you torn your clothes? Let him come to me, that he may learn that there is a prophet in Israel." 9 So Naaman came with his horses and chariots, and halted at the entrance of Elisha's house. 10 Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, "Go, wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored and you shall be clean." 11 But Naaman became angry and went away, saying, "I thought that for me he would surely come out, and stand and call on the name of the LORD his God, and would wave his hand over the spot, and cure the leprosy! 12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Could I not wash in them, and be clean?" He turned and went away in a rage. 13 But his servants approached and said to him, "Father, if the prophet had commanded you to do something difficult, would you not have done it? How much more, when all he said to you was, 'Wash, and be clean'?" 14 So he went down and immersed himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the word of the man of God; his flesh was restored like the flesh of a young boy, and he was clean. Response:Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD


Psalm 30: 1-5; 10-12 1 I will exalt you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up from the depths: and have not suffered my foes to triumph over me. 2 O Lord my God, I cried to you: and you have made me whole. 3 You brought me back, O Lord, from the land of silence: you saved my life from among those that go down to the Pit. 4 Sing praises to the Lord, all you his faithful ones: and give thanks to his holy name. 5 For if in his anger is havoc, in his good favour is life: heaviness may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. 10 ‘Hear, O Lord, and be merciful: O Lord, be my helper.’ 11 You have turned my lamentation into dancing: you have put off my sackcloth and girded me with joy, 12 That my heart may sing your praise and never be silent: O Lord my God, I will give you thanks for ever.

Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 24 Do you not know that in a race the runners all compete, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win it. 25 Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one. 26 So I do not run aimlessly, nor do I box as though beating the air; 27 but I punish my body and enslave it, so that after proclaiming to others I myself should not be disqualified. Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD


Gradual Hymn: TiS 602

1. O Love that wilt not let me go, I rest my weary soul in thee: I give thee back the life I owe, that in thine ocean depths its flow may richer, fuller be. 2. O Light that followest all my way, I yield my flickering torch to thee: my heart restores its borrowed ray, that in thy sunshine’s blaze its day may brighter, fairer be. 3. O Joy that seekest me through pain, I cannot close my heart to thee: I trace the rainbow through the rain, and feel the promise is not vain, that morn shall tearless be. 4. O Cross that liftest up my head, I dare not ask to fly from thee: I lay in dust life’s glory dead, and from the ground there blossoms red life that shall endless be.


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 Mark chapter 1 beginning at the 40th verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 40

A leper came to him begging him, and kneeling he said to him, "If you choose, you can make me clean." 41 Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, "I do choose. Be made clean!" 42 Immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. 43 After sternly warning him he sent him away at once, 44 saying to him, "See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them." 45 But he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread the word, so that Jesus could no longer go into a town openly, but stayed out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter. Gospel Response: This is the gospel of the Lord, PRAISE TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST.

ALLELUIA Sung by Choir & Congregation



(copy of sermon available at back of church)

The Choir sings: "From the rising of the sun", Ouseley. 11

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. 12

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: all who work for peace and justice. We pray for: Province of Central Africa; The Diocese of Grafton; Hospital Chaplaincy & Chaplains; Church of the Ascension Burwood East; Canterbury Fellowship - 75th Anniversary; St George’s Monbulk; Yarraville Parish; St Paul’s Frankston; and our Bishops Philip and Barbara. We pray for those in need, and for those who care for them: Matilda W, Leonie Muir, Babe Isaacs, Murray C, Mark C, Cameron B, Margaret Y, Judy S, Enid B, 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, Ren C, Jack L, 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. We remember before God with thanksgiving the life of Anne Gumley (2008), as we come to the anniversary of her entry into your nearer presence. 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.


(all stand)

{Celebrant} We are the body of Christ. His Spirit is with us. The peace of the Lord be always with you. And also with you. [A greeting of peace is exchanged with those around us] 13

Offertory Hymn: TiS 398

1. Come down, O Love divine, seek now this soul of mine, and visit it with your own ardour glowing; O Comforter, draw near, within my heart appear and kindle it, your holy flame bestowing.

3. Let holy charity my outer garment be, and lowliness become my inner clothing: true lowliness of heart, which takes the humbler part and for its own shortcomings weeps with loathing.

2. There let it freely burn, till earthly passions turn to dust and ashes, in its heat consuming; and let your glorious light shine ever on my sight and clothe me round, the while my path illuming.

4. And so the yearning strong with which the soul will long shall far outpass the power of human telling; for none can guess its grace till we become the place in which the Holy Spirit makes his dwelling.

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. 14

The Prayer of Thanksgiving Priest: People: Priest: People: Priest: People: Priest:


The Lord be with you. And also with you. Lift up your hearts: We lift them to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give him thanks and praise... ... Forever praising you and singing:


Priest: ‌. do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of me

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.

The choir sings the Agnus Dei Come let us take this holy sacrament of the body and blood of Christ in remembrance that he died for us, and feed on him in our hearts by faith with thanksgiving. Baptised Christians who receive communion in their own church are invited to share communion with us. 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 "Draw us in the spirit's tether", Friedell 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 210

1. O for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer’s praise, the glories of our God and King, the triumphs of his grace! 2. Jesus! the name that charms our fears, that bids our sorrows cease; such music in the sinner’s ears is life, and health, and peace. 3. He breaks the power of cancelled sin, he sets the prisoner free; his blood can make the foulest clean, his blood availed for me.


4. He speaks, and listening to his voice new life the dead receive, the mournful, broken hearts rejoice, the humble poor believe. 5. Hear him, you deaf; his praise, you dumb, your loosened tongues employ; you blind, behold your Saviour come; and leap, you lame, for joy! 6. My gracious Master and my God, assist me to proclaim, to spread through all the earth abroad the honours of your name.


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