Hymn: TiS 449 1. Stand up and bless the Lord, you people of his choice; stand up and bless the Lord your God with heart, and soul, and voice. 2. Though high above all praise, above all blessing high, who would not fear his holy name, and praise and magnify? 3. O for the living flame from his own altar brought, to touch our lips, our minds inspire, and wing to heaven our thought! 4. God is our strength and song, and his salvation ours; then be his love in Christ proclaimed with all our ransomed powers. 5. Stand up and bless the Lord, the Lord your God adore; stand up and bless his glorious name, henceforth for evermore. James Montgomery 1771–1854 alt.


The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU.

(see Ruth 2:4)

Sentence: Whoever does not carry the cross and follow Jesus cannot be his disciple. Luke 14.27 3

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 (How 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 God of the ages, you call the Church to keep watch in the world and to discern the signs of the times: grant us the wisdom that your Spirit bestows, so that with courage we may proclaim your prophetic word, and complete the work you have set before us; through your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD Readings from 'New Revised Standard Version' (NRSV) First Reading: Jeremiah 18.1-11 1

The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 ‘Come, go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.’ 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. 4 The vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as seemed good to him. 5 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 6 Can I not do with you, O house of Israel, just as this potter has done? says the Lord . Just like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel. 7 At one moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, 8 but if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will change my mind about the disaster that I intended to bring on it. 9 And at another moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it, 10 but if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will change my mind about the good that I had intended to do to it. 11 Now, therefore, say to the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: Thus says the Lord: Look, I am a potter shaping evil against you and devising a plan against you. Turn now, all of you from your evil way, and amend your ways and your doings. Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD 8

Psalm: 139 The response is sung first by the cantor, then the choir and then by the congregation, then by all after each verse.


Verses (choir only) 1. O Lord, you search me and you know me, you know my resting and my rising, you discern my purpose from afar. You mark when I walk or lie down, all my ways lie open to you. Response 2. If I say: ‘Let darkness hide me and the light around me be night,’ even darkness is not dark for you and the night is as clear as the day. Response 3. For it was you who created my being, knit me together in my mother’s womb. I thank you for the wonder of my being, for the wonders of all your creation. Response 4. Already you knew my soul, my body held no secret from you when I was being fashioned in secret and moulded in the depths of the earth. Response Phillip Pennington Harris


Second Reading: Philemon 1.7-20 7

I have indeed received much joy and encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, my brother. 8 For this reason, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty, 9 yet I would rather appeal to you on the basis of love—and I, Paul, do this as an old man, and now also as a prisoner of Christ Jesus. 10 I am appealing to you for my child, Onesimus, whose father I have become during my imprisonment. 11 Formerly he was useless to you, but now he is indeed useful both to you and to me. 12 I am sending him, that is, my own heart, back to you. 13 I wanted to keep him with me, so that he might be of service to me in your place during my imprisonment for the gospel; 14 but I preferred to do nothing without your consent, in order that your good deed might be voluntary and not something forced. 15 Perhaps this is the reason he was separated from you for a while, so that you might have him back for ever, 16 no longer as a slave but as more than a slave, a beloved brother—especially to me but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord.17 So if you consider me your partner, welcome him as you would welcome me. 18 If he has wronged you in any way, or owes you anything, charge that to my account. 19 I, Paul, am writing this with my own hand: I will repay it. I say nothing about your owing me even your own self. 20 Yes, brother, let me have this benefit from you in the Lord! Refresh my heart in Christ. Response:Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD


Gradual Hymn: And did those feet in ancient time

1. And did those feet in ancient time Walk upon England's mountains green? And was the holy Lamb of God On England's pleasant pastures seen? And did the countenance divine Shine forth upon our clouded hills? And was Jerusalem builded here Among those dark satanic mills? 2. Bring me my bow of burning gold! Bring me my arrows of desire! Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold! Bring me my chariot of fire! I will not cease from mental fight, Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand, Till we have built Jerusalem In England's green and pleasant land.


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 Luke chapter 14 beginning at the 25th verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 25

Now large crowds were travelling with him; and he turned and said to them, 26 ‘Whoever comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even life itself, cannot be my disciple. 27 Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it? 29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it will begin to ridicule him, 30 saying, “This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.” 31 Or what king, going out to wage war against another king, will not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one who comes against him with twenty thousand?32 If he cannot, then, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for the terms of peace. 33 So therefore, none of you can become my disciple if you do not give up all your possessions. 34 ‘Salt is good; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored?35 It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure heap; they throw it away. Let anyone with ears to hear listen!’

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 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. 13

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: We pray for all who work for peace and justice. We pray for The Diocese of Sebei, Uganda; The Diocese of Bunbury; Archdeaconry of Stonnington and Glen Eira; St Michael & All Angels' Beaumaris; South Croydon Anglican Church; St Paul’s Cathedral – confirmation service and Eucharist; St Stephen’s & St Mary’s Mt Waverley – Patronal Festival; Christ Church Newport; St Silas’ & St Anselm Albert Park. We pray for our ministry team: Roy, Jessica, Norman, Helen, Leonie, Ros & Pam - and for all who serve within the parish. We pray for all who are working on the building project and for its successful completion; and our Bishops Philip and Barbara. We pray for those in need, and for those who care for them: Ian H, Babe I, Jean S, Bp Barbara, Margaret Y, Philip C, Brenda, Jean I, Beatrice S, Judy S, Miriam A, Robert D, Mia C, Jan T, Peter Hs and those we remember in our own hearts and prayers. We pray for the members of Holy Trinity not able to worship with us, Wilma M, Margaret D, Ronald D, Ren C, Nancy K, Hilary, Joyce L, Elisabeth D, Lorna M, Jean D, and all who care for them. We give thanks for the lives of Aaron Brake, Betty Foletta, and Joan Bell as we uphold them to your loving mercy, and we pray for all who mourn their deaths. We remember before God with thanksgiving the lives of Nelle Lees (2010), David Hadwen (2002), and Marmaduke HenryWaring (2012), as we come to the anniversary of their entry into your nearer presence. 14

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)

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 456 1. Your hand, O God, has guided your flock from age to age; the wondrous tale is written, full clear, on every page; your people owned your goodness, and we their deeds record; and both of this bear witness: one church, one faith, one Lord.

3. Through many a day of darkness, through many a scene of strife, the faithful few fought bravely to guard the nation’s life. Their gospel of redemption, sin pardoned, earth restored, was all in this enfolded: one church, one faith, one Lord.

2. Your heralds brought glad tidings to greatest, as to least; they bade them rise, and hasten to share the great King’s feast; and this was all their teaching, in every deed and word, to all alike proclaiming one church, one faith, one Lord.

4. Your mercy will not fail us, nor leave your work undone; with your right hand to help us, the victory shall be won; and then by all creation, your name shall be adored, and this shall be our anthem: one church, one faith, one Lord. Edward Hayes Plumptre 1821–91 alt. Music by permission of the Trustee of the late Dr Basil Harwood’s settlement

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: 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.



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 (drink or intinction) (b) 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 “Give almes of thy goods�, Tye.

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 563 1. Let him to whom we now belong his sovereign right assert, and take up every thankful song and every loving heart.

4. Jesus, thine own at last receive, fulfil our hearts’ desire, and let us to thy glory live and in thy cause expire.

2. He justly claims us for his own, who bought us with a price; as Christians live to Christ alone, to Christ alone we die.

5. Our souls and bodies we resign; with joy we render thee our all, no longer ours, but thine to all eternity.

3. We come in deep humility thine easy yoke to prove, and own it perfect liberty to serve the Lord we love.
