Hymn: TiS 432 – WESTMINSTER ABBEY 1. Christ is made the sure foundation, Christ the head and cornerstone, chosen by the Lord, and precious, binding all the church in one, holy Zion’s help for ever, and her confidence alone. 2. All that dedicated city, dearly loved by God on high, in exultant jubilation pours perpetual melody, God the Three in One adoring, praising him eternally. 3. Here among us, where we call you come, O Lord our God today; with your gentle loving-kindness hear your people as we pray, and your fullest benediction pour upon us here today. 4. Here bestow on all your people what we ask of you to gain, what we gain from you for ever with the blessèd to retain, and hereafter in your glory evermore with you to reign. 5. Praise and honour to the Father, praise and honour to the Son, praise and honour to the Spirit, ever Three and ever One, one in might and one in glory while eternal ages run. From Urbs beata Hierusalem, Latin, c. 7th cent. tr. John Mason Neale 1818–66 alt.

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


Sentence: Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labour for that which does not satisfy? Eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food. Isaiah 55.2

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

(Kew Setting)

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

{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.

5


Prayer of the Day Living God, whose Son Jesus fed the hungry with the bread of his life and the word of his kingdom: renew your people with your heavenly grace, and in all our weakness sustain us with your true and living bread, 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: Ephesians 4:1-7 (CEV) 4 As a prisoner of the Lord, I beg you to live in a way that is worthy of the people God has chosen to be his own. 2 Always be humble and gentle. Patiently put up with each other and love each other. 3 Try your best to let God’s Spirit keep your hearts united. Do this by living at peace. 4 All of you are part of the same body. There is only one Spirit of God, just as you were given one hope when you were chosen to be God’s people. 5 We have only one Lord, one faith, and one baptism. 6 There is one God who is the Father of all people. Not only is God above all others, but he works by using all of us, and he lives in all of us. 7 Christ has generously divided out his gifts to us. Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD Psalm 51.1-4, 9-12 Have mercy on me, O God, in your enduring goodness: according to the fulness of your compassion blot out my offences. Wash me thoroughly from my wickedness: and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my rebellion: and my sin is ever before me. Against you only have I sinned and done what is evil in your eyes: so you will be just in your sentence and blameless in your judging. Hide your face from my sins: and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God: and renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me out from your presence: do not take your holy spirit from me. O give me the gladness of your help again: and support me with a willing spirit.

Gradual Hymn: TiS 526 – LIVING LORD 1. Lord Jesus Christ, you have come to us, you are one with us, Mary’s son; cleansing our souls from all their sin, pouring your love and goodness in, Jesus, our love for you we sing, living Lord. 2. Lord Jesus Christ, now and every day teach us how to pray, Son of God. You have commanded us to do this in remembrance, Lord, of you: into our lives your power breaks through, living Lord. 3. Lord Jesus Christ, you have come to us, born as one of us, Mary’s son; led out to die on Calvary, risen from death to set us free, living Lord Jesus, help us see you are Lord. 4. Lord Jesus Christ, I would come to you, live my life for you, Son of God. All your commands I know are true, your many gifts will make me new, into my life your power breaks through, living Lord.

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 6 beginning at the 29th verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 29

Jesus answered, “God wants you to have faith in the one he sent.” 30 They replied, “What miracle will you work, so that we can have faith in you? What will you do? 31 For example, when our ancestors were in the desert, they were given manna to eat. It happened just as the Scriptures say, ‘God gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” 32 Jesus then told them, “I tell you for certain that Moses wasn’t the one who gave you bread from heaven. My Father is the one who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 And the bread that God gives is the one who came down from heaven to give life to the world.” 34 The people said, “Lord, give us this bread and don’t ever stop!” 35 Jesus replied: I am the bread that gives life! No one who comes to me will ever be hungry. No one who has faith in me will ever be thirsty. Gospel Response:

Alleluia

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

(sung by choir and congregation together)

Offertory Hymn: TiS 474 – GATHER US IN 1. Here in this place new light is streaming, now is the darkness vanished away, see, in this space, our fears and our dreamings, brought here to you in the light of this day. Gather us in, the lost and forsaken; gather us in, the blind and the lame; call to us now, and we shall awaken, we shall arise at the sound of our name. 2. We are the young, our lives are a mystery; we are the old, who yearn for your face; we have been sung throughout all of history, called to be light to the whole human race. Gather us in, the rich and the haughty; gather us in, the proud and the strong; give us a heart so meek and so lowly, give us the cour-age to enter the song. 3. Here we will take of the wine and the water, here we will take the bread of new birth, here you shall call your sons and your daughters, call us anew to be salt of the earth. Give us to drink the wine of compassion, give us to eat the bread that is you; nourish us well, and teach us to fashion lives that are holy and hearts that are true. 4. Not in the dark of buildings con-fining, not in some heaven light years away, but here in this space, the new light is shining, now is the kingdom, now is the day. Gather us in, and hold us forever; gather us in, and make us your own; gather us in, all peoples together, fire of love in our flesh and our bone. Marty Haugen 1950– Words and music by permission G.

Final Hymn: TiS 52 – SING HOSANNA 1. Let us sing to the God of salvation, let us sing to the Lord our rock! Let us come to his house with thanksgiving, let us come before the Lord and sing! Praise our Maker, praise our Saviour, praise the Lord our everlasting King. Every throne must bow before him, God is Lord of everything! 2. In his hands are the earth’s deep places and the strength of the hills is his; all the sea is the Lord’s, for he made it, by his hands the dry land was formed. 3. Let us worship the Lord our Maker, let us kneel to the Lord our God; for we all are the sheep of his pasture, he will guide us by his powerful hand. 4. Let today be the time when you hear him! May our hearts not be hard or cold, lest we stray from the Lord in rebellion, as his people did in time of old. Richard Thomas Bewes 1934– Words: Richard Bewes

GENERAL NOTICES

Olympic Update: Ellie Gandy finished 8th in the final of the 100m butterfly and just failed to qualify for the semi-finals in the 200m butterfly after leading for more than half of the race. She is very disappointed that her swim times were not better, but hopefully will gain much from the experience. THANK YOU: to all who supported the Mothers Union Project. $268.30 was donated THANK YOU: From Anglicare for our continued support of food for the Mission House in Fitzroy. They are experiencing increased demand (8% this year) for assistance as unemployment and rising prices push more families into financial hardship. Birthday:
