8:00am Holy Communion 10:30am Parish Communion* The Order of Service is contained in the separate service booklet. We welcome as our preacher at 10:30am Canon John Westwood, Priest in Charge of Holy Trinity Rothwell, and former curate at Oakham from 1981-83.

Opening Hymn* 1. O worship the King, all glorious above; O gratefully sing His power and His love; our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days, pavilioned in splendour, and girded with praise. 2. O tell of his might, O sing of his grace, whose robe is the light, whose canopy space; his chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form, and dark is his path on the wings of the storm. 3. Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite? It breathes in the air, it shines in the light; it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain, and sweetly distils in the dew and the rain. 4. Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail, in thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail; thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end, Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend. 5. O measureless might, ineffable love, while angels delight to hymn thee above, thy humbler creation, though feeble their lays, with true adoration shall all sing thy praise. Words: based on Psalm 104, Robert Grant (1779-1838) Music: Hannover, from A Supplement to the New Version of the Psalms, 1708 (Ancient & Modern – 754)

Collect Almighty God, you have knit together your elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of your Son Christ our Lord: grant us grace so to follow your blessed saints


in all virtuous and godly living that we may come to those inexpressible joys that you have prepared for those who truly love you; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Old Testament Reading – Daniel 7.1-3,15-18 In the first year of King Belshazzar of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head as he lay in bed. Then he wrote down the dream: I, Daniel, saw in my vision by night the four winds of heaven stirring up the great sea, and four great beasts came up out of the sea, different from one another. As for me, Daniel, my spirit was troubled within me, and the visions of my head terrified me. I approached one of the attendants to ask him the truth concerning all this. So he said that he would disclose to me the interpretation of the matter: ‘As for these four great beasts, four kings shall arise out of the earth. But the holy ones of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever—for ever and ever.’

New Testament Reading – Ephesians 1.11-23 In Christ we have also obtained an inheritance, having been destined according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to his counsel and will, so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, might live for the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you had heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and had believed in him, were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit; this is the pledge of our inheritance towards redemption as God’s own people, to the praise of his glory. I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love towards all the saints, and for this reason I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power. God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.


Gradual Hymn* 1. O King enthroned on high, thou Comforter divine, blest Spirit of all truth, be nigh and make us thine.

2. Thou art the source of life, thou art our treasure-store; give us thy peace and end our strife for evermore.

3. Descend, O heavenly Dove, abide with us alway; and in the fullness of thy love cleanse us, we pray. Words: based on 8th century Greek, John Brownlie (1857-1925) Music: Temple, Henry Walford Davies (1869-1941) or Amen Court, John Dykes Bower (1905-1981) (Ancient & Modern – 256)

Gospel Reading – Luke 6.20-31 Then he looked up at his disciples and said: ‘Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. ‘Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. ‘Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. ‘Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets. ‘But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. ‘Woe to you who are full now, for you will be hungry. ‘Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn and weep. ‘Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets. ‘But I say to you that listen, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from anyone who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt. Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes away your goods, do not ask for them again. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Offertory Hymn* 1. For all the saints who from their labours rest, who thee by faith before the world confessed, thy name, O Jesu, be for ever blest. Alleluia.


2. Thou wast their rock, their fortress and their might; thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight; thou, in the darkness, still their one true light. Alleluia. 3. O blest communion, fellowship divine! we feebly struggle, they in glory shine; yet all are one in thee, for all are thine. Alleluia. 4. But lo, there breaks a yet more glorious day; the saints triumphant rise in bright array: the King of glory passes on His way. Alleluia. 5. From earth’s wide bounds, from ocean’s farthest coast, through gates of pearl streams in the countless host, singing to Father, Son and Holy Ghost Alleluia. Words: William Walsham How (1823-1897) Music: Sine Nomine, Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) (Ancient & Modern – 296)

Communion Anthem* Cantate Domino canticum novum; laus ejus in ecclesia sanctorum.

O sing unto the Lord a new song: let the congregation of saints praise him.

Laetetur Israël in eo qui fecit eum, et filiae Sion exsultent in rege suo.

Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: and let the children of Sion be joyful in their King. Words: Psalm 149.1-2 Music: Giuseppe Ottavio Pitoni (1657-1743)

Communion Hymn* 1. For all the saints who showed your love in how they lived and where they moved, for mindful women, caring men, accept our gratitude again. 2. For all the saints who loved your name, whose faith increased the Saviour’s fame, who sang your songs and shared your word, accept our gratitude, good Lord. 3. For all the saints who named your will, and saw your kingdom coming still through selfless protest, prayer and praise, accept the gratitude we raise.


4. Bless all whose will or name or love reflects the grace of heaven above. Though unacclaimed by earthly powers, your life through theirs has hallowed ours. Words: John L Bell (b 1949) & Graham Maule (b 1958) Music: O Waly Waly, English trad melody, arr Noël Tredinnick (b 1949) © Wild Goose Resource Group, The Iona Community (Ancient & Modern – 297)

Post Communion Prayer God, the source of all holiness and giver of all good things: may we who have shared at this table as strangers and pilgrims here on earth be welcomed with all your saints to the heavenly feast on the day of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Final Hymn* 1. Thanks be to God for his saints of each past generation, one with us still in one body, one great congregation; with them proclaim Jesus for ever the same, Author of life and salvation. 2. Thanks be to God for his blessings which daily surround us; glory to Christ, the Redeemer who sought us and found us, who from the grave rose, the almighty to save, breaking the fetters that bound us. 3. Thanks be to God for the years that are yet in his keeping, trusting each day to the care of a Father unsleeping, on to the end, Christ our companion and friend, joy at the last for our weeping. 4. Thanks be to God who has called us and daily defends us, who with the Son and the Spirit unchanging befriends us; now in that name, Jesus for ever the same, forth to his service he sends us. Words: Timothy Dudley-Smith (b 1926) Music: Lobe Den Herren, German 17th century melody, harm editors of The Chorale Book for England 1863 © Timothy Dudley-Smith (Ancient & Modern – 310)

Next Week’s Readings at Holy Communion

Communications Working Group The Communications Working Group is looking at all aspects of communication at All Saints and in the wider Team Ministry. This is chaired by Kevin Slingsby, and other members are Kevin Andrews, David Dyer, Beryl Kirtland, Victor Hall, Millie Long, Stewart Long, John Tomalin. As well as the pewsheet, we are looking at the Team magazine and the website (and indeed other forms of communication). Areas we have identified as important are communication of what is happening in the church to members of our congregation as well as to the wider community, and particularly between members of the different churches within the Team Ministry. We are also currently looking at the production of a Welcome Pack for new members and visitors. If you come across good examples of communication media in other churches when you are visiting, whether printed material or online, we would be pleased to hear about them. Please have a word with Kevin or one the group members if you have any ideas.

Job 19.23-27a 2 Thessalonians 2.1-5,13-17 Luke 20.27-38 Readings for Remembrance Services may vary.
