near the pulpit. Parents and children are welcome to enter by the church aisle or by the side door.

Our service begins with clergy at the back of the church, the congregation standing as the following is read: Holy Week begins today on a note of triumph. The crowds on the very first Palm Sunday welcomed Jesus enthusiastically with hymns of joy. We also know that their cry changed in the days following as events led to the death and resurrection of Jesus. We begin today by recalling Jesus’ coming to the Holy City of Jerusalem, as recorded in the 12th Chapter of John’s Gospel: 12

The next day a large crowd was in Jerusalem for Passover. When they heard that Jesus was coming for the festival, 13they took palm branches and went out to greet him. They shouted, "Hooray! God bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord! God bless the King of Israel!" 14 Jesus found a donkey and rode on it, just as the Scriptures say, 15 "People of Jerusalem, don't be afraid! Your King is now coming, and he is riding on a donkey." 16 At first, Jesus' disciples did not understand. But after he had been given his glory, they remembered all this. Everything had happened exactly as the Scriptures said it would.


Hymn: TiS 244

1. Trotting, trotting through Jerusalem, Jesus sitting on a donkey’s back, children waving branches, singing: ‘Happy is he that comes in the name of the Lord!’ 2. Many people in Jerusalem thought he should have come on a mighty horse leading all the Jews to battle: ‘Happy is he that comes in the name of the Lord!’ 3. Many people in Jerusalem were amazed to see such a quiet man trotting, trotting on a donkey: ‘Happy is he that comes in the name of the Lord!’ 4. Trotting, trotting through Jerusalem, Jesus sitting on a donkey’s back; let us join the children singing: ‘Happy is he that comes in the name of the Lord!’ Eric James Reid 1936–70 Words and music by permission Stainer & Bell, London

Greeting: The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU. (see Ruth 2:4) 3

Sentence: At the name of Jesus, every knee shall bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2.10-11

Prayer of Preparation: As we gather as God's people let us pray together: God of love and peace, you know what we think and feel. Touch our hearts that our thoughts and actions may be good so that we may love you and honour you, through Jesus 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. God of mercy and grace, we have sometimes thought wrong things, and done wrong things and we have not always loved each other as we should. We are sorry. Forgive us and help us to love and obey you , 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 Everlasting God, in your tender love for the human race you sent your Son to take our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross: in your mercy enable us to share in his obedience to your will and in the glorious victory of his resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen



First Reading: Phillipians 2:8-11 8

Christ was humble. He obeyed God and even died on a cross. 9 Then God gave Christ the highest place and honored his name above all others. 10 So at the name of Jesus everyone will bow down, those in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. 11 And to the glory of God the Father everyone will openly agree, "Jesus Christ is Lord!" Response:

Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD

Psalm 31:9, 16-18 Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble: my eye wastes away for grief, my throat also and my inward parts. But in you, Lord, have I put my trust: I have said ‘You are my God.’ All my days are in your hand: O deliver me from the power of my enemies and from my persecutors. Make your face to shine upon your servant: and save me for your mercy’s sake.


Gradual Hymn: TiS 348

4. Ride on, ride on in majesty; your last and fiercest strife is nigh; the Father on his sapphire throne awaits his own anointed Son.

1. Ride on, ride on in majesty; hark, all the tribes hosanna cry! O Saviour, meek, pursue your road with palms and scattered garments strowed.

5. Ride on, ride on in majesty, 2. Ride on, ride on in majesty, in lowly pomp ride on to die; in lowly pomp ride on to die; bow your meek head to mortal O Christ, your triumphs now begin pain, o’er captive death and conquered then take, O God, your power and sin. reign! Henry Hart Milman 1791–1868 alt.

3. Ride on, ride on in majesty; the wingèd squadrons of the sky look down with sad and wondering eyes to see the approaching sacrifice.




The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, according to Saint Mark chapter 14 beginning at the 22nd verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 22

During the meal Jesus took some bread in his hands. He blessed the bread and broke it. Then he gave it to his disciples and said, "Take this. It is my body." 23 Jesus picked up a cup of wine and gave thanks to God. He gave it to his disciples, and they all drank some. 24Then he said, "This is my blood, which is poured out for many people, and with it God makes his agreement. 25From now on I will not drink any wine, until I drink new wine in God's kingdom."26Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives. 27 Jesus said to his disciples, "All of you will reject me, as the Scriptures say, `I will strike down the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.' 28 But after I am raised to life, I will go ahead of you to Galilee." 29 Peter spoke up, "Even if all the others reject you, I never will!" 30 Jesus replied, "This very night before a rooster crows twice, you will say three times that you don't know me." 31 But Peter was so sure of himself that he said, "Even if I have to die with you, I will never say that I don't know you!" All the others said the same thing. Gospel Response:

This is the gospel of the Lord PRAISE TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST.

THE BAPTISM When Jesus had risen from the dead, he commanded his followers to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. We have come together today in obedience to that command. In baptism, we are joined to Christ, and made members of his Church. Baptism of children is a celebration of new life and the promise of eternal life, and an acknowledgement of their need for care and protection. While we focus on the grace of God given to those who are baptized, we also acknowledge that spiritual growth depends on parents and godparents, and the wider circle of family and friends, who are the examples and influence that mould a child’s character. In this service of baptism we bring Harry and Amelia into God’s presence that they may be enfolded in the grace of the Holy Spirit. Parents and Godparents who bring children for baptism must express their own trust and commitment to the promises of God, and their intention to bring up the children in the faith and practice of the Church. The Baptism party gather around the font. The parents and godparents are asked the questions:

Q/ Before God and this congregation, you must affirm your belief in God and so I ask: Do you Believe in God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit? A/ I do. Q/ Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you in bringing Harry and Amelia for baptism? A/ I will. Q/ By your prayers and example, by your friendship and love, will you encourage them in the life and faith of the Christian community? A/ I will. Q/ As your life will be an example to Harry and Amelia, will you turn away from evil thoughts, words and actions? A/ I will. Q/ Will you affirm Christian values, especially those of honesty, compassion and mercy? A/ I will.


Priest to the congregation: You have heard our brothers and sisters respond to Christ. Will you support them in this calling? ALL: WE WILL. Priest: Almighty God lead you in the light of Christ to his everlasting kingdom. AMEN.

Prayers and Blessing of the water [Let us pray:] Grant, merciful God, that Harry and Amelia may be so united with Christ in baptism that your new nature may be raised up in them where the fruit of your Spirit may grow and flourish. Give to family and friends the desire to share what you have revealed in your Holy Gospel. We give you thanks that at the beginning of creation your Holy Spirit moved upon the waters to bring forth light and life. With water you cleanse and replenish the earth; and through the waters of the Red Sea you led your people by Moses out of slavery into freedom, and brought them through the river Jordan into the land of promise. We give you thanks for your Son, Jesus Christ: for his baptism by John, for his anointing in the Holy Spirit, and that through the deep waters of death Jesus delivered us from our sins and was raised to new life in triumph. We give you thanks for the grace of the Holy Spirit who leads us to your kingdom. And now we give you thanks that you have called Harry Christopher McShane and Amelia Jean McShane to new birth in your Church through the waters of baptism. + Pour out your Holy Spirit in blessing and sanctify this water so that all who are baptized may be made one with Christ in his death and resurrection, through Jesus Christ our Lord, AMEN.


An affirmation of faith Priest: I ask the congregation to join with the parents and godparents in affirming the faith of the church. Do you believe in God the Father? A/: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. Do you believe in God the Son? A/: I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit? A/: I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. AMEN.

The baptism Priest: Harry Christopher / Amelia Jean, I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, AMEN. I sign you with the sign of the cross to show that you are marked as Christ’s own forever. (Oil that has been blessed by a bishop is used in anointing to symbolize being chosen in God, as were the priests and prophets of the Old Testament, and the New Testament understanding that we are all anointed in the Spirit through belief in Christ.)


Live as a disciple of Christ; fight the good fight, finish the race, keep the faith. ALL: Confess Christ crucified, proclaim his resurrection, look for his coming in glory. Priest: God has called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. ALL: Shine as a light in the world to the glory of God the Father. Priest: God has called you into his church. ALL: We therefore receive and welcome you as a member with us of the body of Christ, as a child of the one heavenly Father, and as an inheritor of the kingdom of God. Prayers for the child, parents and godparents Merciful God, in your infinite love you have made a new covenant with us in Jesus Christ, promising to be our God and the God of our children. Enable all who are baptised in your name to live as your faithful people. Fulfil your promises for Harry and Amelia, we pray, and grant that they may grow in your faith and service. We pray for Jackie and Richard, that in your Spirit of wisdom, their family may grow in your love, and their home share in the joy of your eternal kingdom. And we pray for Harry’s and Amelia’s godparents, Belinda & Andrew and Camille & Christopher; enable them to share with their godchildren what you have revealed to us of your love in your holy gospel. We ask this in the name of our Saviour Jesus Christ, AMEN. THE GREETING OF PEACE {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] 14

Offertory Hymn: TiS 658 1. I, the Lord of sea and sky, I have heard my people cry. All who dwell in dark and sin my hand will save. I who made the stars of night, I will make their darkness bright. Who will bear my light to them? Whom shall I send? Here I am, Lord; is it I, Lord? I have heard you calling in the night; I will go, Lord, if you lead me. I will hold your people in my heart.

2. I, the Lord of snow and rain, I have borne my people’s pain; I have wept for love of them. They turn away. I will break their hearts of stone, give them hearts for love alone. I will speak my word to them. Whom shall I send? Here I am, Lord... 3. I, the Lord of wind and flame, I will tend the poor and lame, I will set a feast for them. My hand will save. Finest bread I will provide till their hearts are satisfied. I will give my life to them. Whom shall I send? Here I am, Lord... Daniel L. Schutte 1947– suggested by Isaiah 6 Words and music by permission Oregon Catholic Press

No more doubting, no more senseless dread: God’s good self has graced our wine and bread; all the wonder heaven has kept in store. now is ours to keep for evermore. 3. Celebrate with saints who dine on high, witnesses that love can never die. ‘Hallelujah!’— thus their voices ring: nothing less in gratitude we bring. 4.
