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! 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! 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! 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! 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!

The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU.

(see Ruth 2:4)

Sentence: I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. Luke 15.10

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 Undaunted you seek the lost, O God, exultant you bring home the found: touch our hearts with grateful wonder at the tenderness of your forbearing love; grant us delight in the mercy that has found us; and bring all to rejoice at the feast of forgiven sinners. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.

THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD Readings from 'New Revised Standard Version' (NRSV) First Reading: Jeremiah 4.11-12, 22-28 11

At that time it will be said to this people and to Jerusalem: A hot wind comes from me out of the bare heights in the desert towards my poor people, not to winnow or cleanse— 12 a wind too strong for that. Now it is I who speak in judgement against them. 22 ‘For my people are foolish, they do not know me; they are stupid children, they have no understanding. They are skilled in doing evil, but do not know how to do good.’ 23 I looked on the earth, and lo, it was waste and void; and to the heavens, and they had no light. 24 I looked on the mountains, and lo, they were quaking, and all the hills moved to and fro. 25 I looked, and lo, there was no one at all, and all the birds of the air had fled. 26 I looked, and lo, the fruitful land was a desert, and all its cities were laid in ruins before the Lord, before his fierce anger. 27 For thus says the Lord: The whole land shall be a desolation; yet I will not make a full end. 28 Because of this the earth shall mourn, and the heavens above grow black; for I have spoken, I have purposed; I have not relented nor will I turn back.

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


Psalm 14 1

Fools have said in their hearts ‘There is no God’: they have all become vile and abominable in their doings, there is not one that does good.


The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of Adam: to see if there were any who would act wisely and seek after God.


But they have all turned out of the way, they have all alike become corrupt: there is none that does good, no not one.


Are all the evildoers devoid of understanding: who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not pray to the Lord?


They shall be struck with terror: for God is with the company of the righteous.


Though they frustrate the poor in their hopes: surely the Lord is their refuge.


O that deliverance for Israel might come forth from Zion: when the Lord turns again the fortunes of his people, then shall Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.


Second Reading: 1 Timothy 1.12-19a 12

I am grateful to Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because he judged me faithful and appointed me to his service, 13 even though I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a man of violence. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, 14 and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 15 The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the foremost. 16 But for that very reason I received mercy, so that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display the utmost patience, making me an example to those who would come to believe in him for eternal life. 17 To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. 18 I am giving you these instructions, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies made earlier about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight, 19 having faith and a good conscience. By rejecting conscience, certain persons have suffered shipwreck in the faith.

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


Gradual Hymn: TiS 101

1. Come, you people, come adore him God in Holy Trinity, God the Father, Son and Spirit, ever blessèd unity. 2. All your glory, God almighty, to the Son and Spirit given, ere upon the world’s creation dawned the newborn light of heaven: 3. holy, holy, we adore you one in power, in nature one; God the Father, God the Spirit, God the co-eternal Son. 4. By your Son the wide creation rose where chaos held its sway; by the Spirit, God Almighty swept eternal night away. 5. Son, the Father’s love revealing, Son, through whom the Spirit came, blessed Godhead, endless glory be to your exalted name! Hymn from the Russian Church tr. John Brownlie 1859–1925 alt. Reproduced with permission


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 15 beginning at the 1st verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 1

Now all the tax-collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, ‘This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them.’ 3 So he told them this parable: 4 ‘Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it? 5 When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbours, saying to them, “Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.” 7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who need no repentance. 8 ‘Or what woman having ten silver coins, if she loses one of them, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? 9 When she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbours, saying, “Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.” 10 Just so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.’

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) 12

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 pray for: We pray for all who work for peace and justice.

We pray for those in need, and for those who care for them: Ian H, Jean S, 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 give thanks for the improved health of Babe I and we pray for her continuing good health. 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 remember before God with thanksgiving the lives of Lowan Attwood (2012), Bill Dott (2011) and Elsie McCall (1964), 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. 14


(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 233 1. I will sing the wondrous story of the Christ who died for me, how he left the realms of glory for the cross on Calvary.

3. Faint was I, and fears possessed me, bruised was I from many a fall, hope was gone, and shame distressed me: but his love has pardoned all.

Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story 4. Days of darkness still may meet me, of the Christ who died for me, sorrow’s paths I oft may tread; sing it with his saints in glory, but his presence still is with me, gathered by the crystal sea. by his guiding hand I’m led. 2. I was lost: but Jesus found me, found the sheep that went astray, raised me up and gently led me back into the narrow way.

5. He will keep me till the river rolls its waters at my feet: then he’ll bear me safely over, where the loved ones I shall meet. Arrangement © Australian Hymn Book Co Francis Harold Rowley 1854–1952 Reproduced with permission

Final Hymn: TiS 158 1. God has spoken by his prophets, spoken his unchanging word, each, from age to age proclaiming God, the one, the righteous Lord. In the world’s despair and turmoil one firm anchor holds us fast: God is king, his throne eternal, God the first, and God the last. 2. God has spoken by Christ Jesus, Christ, the everlasting Son, brightness of the Father’s glory, with the Father ever one; spoken by the Word incarnate, God from God, ere time began, Light from Light, to earth descending, God, revealed as Son of Man. 3. God is speaking by his Spirit, speaking to our hearts again, in the age-long word expounding God’s own message, now as then, through the rise and fall of nations one sure faith yet standing fast; God still speaks, his word unchanging, God the first, and God the last.
