Hymn: TiS 140
1. Firmly I believe and truly God is Three and God is One; and I next acknowledge duly manhood taken by the Son.
4. And I hold in veneration, for the love of him alone, holy church as his creation, and her teachings as his own.
2. And I trust and hope most fully in that manhood crucified; and each thought and deed unruly do to death, as he has died.
5. Adoration ay be given, with and through the angelic host, to the God of earth and heaven, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. John Henry Newman 1801–90
3. Simply to his grace and wholly light and life and strength belong, and I love supremely, solely, him the holy, him the strong.
Greeting: The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU.
(see Ruth 2:4)
Sentence: Jesus prayed, ‘Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one.’ John 17.11 2
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 (Kew Setting)
The Confession God is steadfast in love and infinite in mercy, welcoming sinners and inviting them to the Lordâ€™s table. 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 Words of assurance: Merciful Lord, grant to your faithful people pardon and peace, may they be cleansed from all sin, and serve you with a quiet mind, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer of the Day Almighty God, your blessed Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ, ascended far above all heavens that he might fill all things: mercifully give us faith to trust that, as he promised, he abides with us on earth until the end of time; through the same 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: ACTS 1.15-17, 21-26 15
In those days Peter stood up among the believers (together the crowd numbered about one hundred and twenty people) and said, 16‘Friends, the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit through David foretold concerning Judas, who became a guide for those who arrested Jesus— 17for he was numbered among us and was allotted his share in this ministry.’ 21So one of the men who have accompanied us throughout the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 22beginning from the baptism of John until the day when he was taken up from us—one of these must become a witness with us to his resurrection.’ 23So they proposed two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also known as Justus, and Matthias. 24Then they prayed and said, ‘Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us which one of these two you have chosen 25to take the place in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.’ 26And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles.
Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD 6
Psalm: 1:1-7 1 Blessed are they who have not walked in the counsel of the ungodly: nor followed the way of sinners, nor taken their seat amongst the scornful. 2 But their delight is in the law of the Lord: and on that law will they ponder day and night. 3 They are like trees planted beside streams of water: that yield their fruit in due season. 4 Their leaves also shall not wither: and look, whatever they do, it shall prosper. 5 As for the ungodly, it is not so with them: they are like the chaff which the wind scatters. 6 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand up at the judgement: nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 7 For the Lord cares for the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Second Reading: 1 JOHN 5.9-13 9
If we receive human testimony, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God that he has testified to his Son. 10Those who believe in the Son of God have the testimony in their hearts. Those who do not believe in God have made him a liar by not believing in the testimony that God has given concerning his Son. 11And this is the testimony: God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD
Gradual Hymn: TiS 502
1. Soul of my Saviour, sanctify my breast; body of Christ, be my true saving guest; blood of my Saviour, bathe me in your tide; wash me with water flowing from your side. 2. Strength and protection may your Passion be; O blessĂ¨d Jesus, hear and answer me: deep in your wounds, Lord, hide and shelter me; so shall I never from you parted be. 3. From the foul enemy my soul defend; in death's dread moments be my loving friend; call me, and bid me come to you on high, when I may praise you with your saints for ay. Anon. Latin, 14th cent. tr. J. Hegarty, S.J., d.1834 alt.
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 John chapter 17 beginning at the 6th verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 6
â€˜I have made your name known to those whom you gave me from the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me is from you; 8for the words that you gave to me I have given to them, and they have received them and know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. 9I am asking on their behalf; I am not asking on behalf of the world, but on behalf of those whom you gave me, because they are yours. 10All mine are yours, and yours are mine; and I have been glorified in them. 11And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one. 12While I was with them, I protected them in your name that you have given me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost except the one destined to be lost, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13But now I am coming to you, and I speak these things in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves. 14I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 15I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one. 16They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 17Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. 18As you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified in truth.
Gospel Response: This is the gospel of the Lord, PRAISE TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. ALLELUIA Sung by Choir & Congregation 9
(Copies of the sermon are available at the back of church)
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. 10
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 the members of Holy Trinity not able to worship with us, Jean S, Ren C, John H, Nancy K, Margaret D, Hilary & Bill H, Joyce L, Elisabeth D, Lorna M, Jean D, and all who care for them. We give thanks for the life of Jack Lyons as we uphold him to your loving mercy, and we pray for all who mourn his death. We remember before God with thanksgiving the lives of Phyllis Graham (2008), John Lanning (1996) and Eunice Wigginton (2009) as we come to the anniversary of their 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.
THE GREETING OF PEACE
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 134
1. Praise, my soul, the king of heaven; to his feet your tribute bring; ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, who like me his praise should sing? Praise him, praise him, hallelujah, praise the everlasting king!
4. Frail as summer’s flower we flourish, blows the wind and it is gone; but while mortals rise and perish God endures unchanging on. Praise him, praise him, hallelujah, praise the high eternal one!
2. Praise him for his grace and favour to his people in distress; praise him still the same for ever, slow to chide, and swift to bless: praise him, praise him, hallelujah, glorious in his faithfulness!
5. Angels, help us to adore him, you behold him face to face; sun and moon, bow down before him, dwellers all in time and space: praise him, praise him, hallelujah, praise with us the God of grace!
3. Father-like he tends and spares us; well our feeble frame he knows; in his hands he gently bears us, rescues us from all our foes: praise him, praise him, hallelujah, widely as his mercy flows!

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.
THE PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING Priest: People: Priest: People: Priest: People:
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.
ALM: Father, we thank you that you feed us in these holy mysteries with the spiritual food of the body and blood of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. We thank you for this assurance of your goodness and love, and that we are living members of Christ’s body, and heirs of his eternal kingdom. May the Holy Spirit be upon us now as we receive this sacrament and know the presence of Jesus Christ, our Lord, AMEN. A reading from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians (11:23-26): For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way he took the cup also, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
k Other ancient authorities read is broken for
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.
THE COMMUNION 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 â€œThe Lord Ascendethâ€? Michael Praetorius 14
THE SENDING OUT OF GOD'S PEOPLE Post-Communion Prayer Gracious God, we thank you that in this sacrament You assure us of your goodness and love. Accept our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving And help us to grow in love and obedience That we may serve you in the world And finally be brought to that table Where all your saints feast with you for ever. 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 194
1. O love how deep, how broad, how high! it fills the heart with ecstasy that God, the Son of God, should take our mortal form for mortals’ sake.
5. For us to wicked hands betrayed, scourged, mocked, in purple robe arrayed, he bore the shameful cross and death; for us at length gave up his breath.
3. For us he was baptized, and bore his holy fast, and hungered sore; for us temptations sharp he knew; for us the tempter overthrew.
6. For us he rose from death again, for us he went on high to reign, for us he sent his Spirit here to guide, to strengthen and to cheer.
4. For us he prayed, for us he taught, for us his daily works he wrought, by words and signs and actions, thus still seeking not himself but us.
7. To him whose boundless love has won salvation for us through his Son, to God the Father, glory be both now and through eternity. Attrib. Thomas à Kempis 1379–1471 tr. Benjamin Webb 1819–85 alt.
The Grace: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all, now and for ever more. AMEN.
Dismissal Go in peace to love and serve the Lord: IN THE NAME OF CHRIST. AMEN
