Hymn: TiS 495

1. Father, we give you thanks, who planted your holy name within our hearts. Knowledge and faith and life immortal Jesus your Son to us imparts. 2. Lord, you have made all for your pleasure, and giv’n us food for all our days, giving in Christ the bread eternal; yours is the power, be yours the praise.

3. Over your church, Lord, watch in mercy, save it from evil, guard it still, perfect it in your love, unite it, cleansed and conforming to your will. 4. As grain, once scattered on the hillsides, was in the broken bread made one, so may your world-wide church be gathered into your kingdom by your Son. From the Didache c. 110 tr.

The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU.


(see Ruth 2:4)

Sentence: Jesus said, ‘Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide

in me, and I in them.’

John 6.56

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 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.


Prayer of the Day Everliving God, your Son, Jesus Christ, gave himself as living bread for the life of the world: give us such a knowledge of his presence that we may be strengthened and sustained by his risen life to serve you continually; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. 5

THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD Readings from 'New Revised Standard Version' (NRSV) First Reading: 1 KINGS 2.10-12; 3.3-14 10

Then David slept with his ancestors, and was buried in the city of David. 11The time that David reigned over Israel was forty years; he reigned for seven years in Hebron, and thirty-three years in Jerusalem. 12So Solomon sat on the throne of his father David; and his kingdom was firmly established. 3Solomon loved the Lord , walking in the statutes of his father David; only, he sacrificed and offered incense at the high places. 4The king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there, for that was the principal high place; Solomon used to offer a thousand burnt-offerings on that altar. 5At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, ‘Ask what I should give you.’ 6And Solomon said, ‘You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant my father David, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart towards you; and you have kept for him this great and steadfast love, and have given him a son to sit on his throne today. 7And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David, although I am only a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. 8And your servant is in the midst of the people whom you have chosen, a great people, so numerous they cannot be numbered or counted. 9Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, able to discern between good and evil; for who can govern this your great people?’ 10It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. 11God said to him, ‘Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches, or for the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, 12I now do according to your word. Indeed I give you a wise and discerning mind; no one like you has been before you and no one like you shall arise after you. 13I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honour all your life; no other king shall compare with you. 14If you will walk in my ways, keeping my statutes and my commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your life.’

Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD


Psalm: 111:1-2, 7-10 1 O praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart: in the company of the upright and among the congregation. 2 The works of the Lord are great: and studied by all who take delight in them. 7 The works of his hands are faithful and just: and all his commandments are sure; 8 They stand firm for ever and ever: they are done in faithfulness and in truth. 9 He sent redemption to his people, he ordained his covenant for ever: holy is his name and worthy to be feared. 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and of good understanding are those that keep his commandments: his praise shall endure for ever.

Second Reading: EPHESIANS 5.11-21 11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12For it is shameful even to mention what such people do secretly; 13but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, 14for everything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, ‘Sleeper, awake! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.’ 15Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, 16making the most of the time, because the days are evil. 17So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit, 19as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, 20giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 21Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ. Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD


Gradual Hymn: TiS 107

1. Sing praise and thanksgiving, let all creatures living now worship their maker with gladness and song; all glory and honour we come to him bringing: O praise to the Almighty, sing praise to our God! 2. Our lives of his making he brings to their waking; in darkness he held us in his gracious care, now into the light we are called from our sleeping: O praise to the Almighty, sing praise to our God! 3. Lord, frame our desiring to do your requiring, that unto your glory be all that we do; and where we have faltered, give strength and give healing: O praise to the Almighty, sing praise to our God! Paul Gerhardt 1607–76 tr. Margaret Barclay (1951) adapted by Colin Alexander Gibson 1933– Adaptation © C. A. Gibson


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 51st verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 51

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.’ 52The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ 53So Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; 55for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. 56Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. 57Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. 58This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live for ever.’ 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) 9

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.


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 give thanks for the life of Millsom Henry-Waring as we uphold them to your loving mercy and we pray for all who mourn their death. 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. The peace of the Lord be always with you.


(all stand) His Spirit is with us. And also with you.

[A greeting of peace is exchanged with those around us]

Offertory Hymn: TiS 520

1. Lord, enthroned in heavenly splendour, first-begotten from the dead, you alone our strong defender, lifting up your people’s head: alleluia, alleluia, Jesus, true and living bread. 2. Here our humble homage pay we, here in loving reverence bow; here for faith’s discernment pray we, lest we fail to know you now: alleluia, alleluia, you are here, we ask not how. 3. Though the lowliest form now veils you as of old in Bethlehem, here as there your angels hail you, branch and flower of Jesse’s stem; alleluia, alleluia, we in worship join with them.

4. Paschal Lamb, your offering, finished once for all when you were slain, in its fullness undiminished shall for evermore remain, alleluia, alleluia, cleansing souls from every stain. 5. Great High Priest of our profession through the veil you entered in; by your mighty intercession grace and mercy you can win: alleluia, alleluia, only sacrifice for sin. 6. Life-imparting heavenly manna, stricken rock with streaming side, heaven and earth with loud hosanna worship you, the Lamb who died, alleluia, alleluia, ris’n, ascended, glorified! George Hugh Bourne, 1840–1925 alt.

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.



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 “O Salutaris Hostia�, 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 15

Final Hymn: TiS 530

1. Now let us from this table rise renewed in body, mind and soul; with Christ we die and live again, his selfless love has made us whole.

3. To fill each human house with love, it is the sacrament of care; the work that Christ began to do we humbly pledge ourselves to share.

2. With minds alert, upheld by grace, to spread the Word in speech and deed, we follow in the steps of Christ, at one with all in hope and need.

4. Then give us grace, Companion* God, to choose again the pilgrim way, and help us to accept with joy the challenge of tomorrow’s day. * ‘Companion’, from Latin cum = ‘together with’, panis = ‘bread’, means literally ‘someone who breaks bread with you’. Frederik Herman Kaan 1929– Words by permission Stainer & Bell, London
