The Opening Hymn

‘Yours the Hand That Made Creation’  Common Praise #256

The Introductory Responses

Great are you, O Lord, and greatly to be praised;
there is no end to your greatness.
One generation shall praise your works
and shall declare your power, love and compassion.
All your works praise you, O Lord,
and your faithful servants bless you.
Our mouths shall speak your praise, O Lord;
may all creation praise your holy name for ever. [i]

The Hymn of Praise

‘Glory to God’  Common Praise #702

The Collect of the Day

Let us pray.

God of heaven and earth,
before the foundation of the universe
and the beginning of time
you are the triune God:
the Author of creation,
the eternal Word of salvation,
and the life-giving Spirit of wisdom.
Guide us to all truth by your Spirit,
that we may proclaim all that Christ revealed
and rejoice in the glory he shared with us.
Glory and praise to you,
Author, Word and Spirit,
now and for ever.  Amen. [ii]

The Proclamation of the Word

The First Reading

A reading from Proverbs (8.1-4, 22-31).

            Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice?  On the heights, beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand; beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries out:  To you, O people, I call, and my cry is to all that live.

            The Lord created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of long ago.  Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth.  When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water.  Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth — when he had not yet made earth and fields, or the worlds first bits of soil.  When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep, when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep, when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth, then I was beside him, like a master worker; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always, rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the human race.

Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.
Thanks be to God.

The Psalm

Psalm 8 with Refrain from Songs for the Holy One

Refrain (sung twice)

O Lord our governor, *
            how exalted is your name in all the world!
Out of the mouths of infants and children *
            your majesty is praised above the heavens.
You have set up a stronghold against your adversaries, *
            to quell the enemy and the avenger.


When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, *
            the moon and the stars you have set in their courses,
what are human beings that you should be mindful of them, *
            their children that you should seek them out?


You have made them but little lower than the angels; *
            you adorn them with glory and honour;
you give them mastery over the works of your hands; *
            you put all things under their feet;
all sheep and oxen, *
            even the wild beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, the fish of the sea, *
            and all that walks in the paths of the sea.
O Lord our governor, *
            how exalted is your name in all the world!


The Second Reading

A reading from Paul’s letter to the Romans (5.1-5)

            Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.  And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.
Thanks be to God.

The Gradual Hymn

‘God, You Have Caused to Be Written’  Common Praise #476

The Gospel

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John (16.12-15).
Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

            [Jesus said to his disciples,] “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.  When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.  He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you.  All that the Father has is mine.  For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.”

The gospel of Christ.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

The Sermon

The Nicene Creed

Let us confess 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,
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. [iii]

Let us pray.

Living God,
receive all we offer you this day.
Grant that hearing your word
and responding to your Spirit,
we may share in your divine life.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord.  Amen. [iv]

The Thanksgiving at the Table

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 our thanks and praise.

Blessed are you, gracious God,
creator of heaven and earth;
we give you thanks and praise,
because, in the mystery you disclose to us,
you reveal your glory
as the glory of your Son and the Holy Spirit:
three persons equal in majesty,
undivided in splendour, yet one Lord, one God,
ever to be adored in your everlasting glory.
Therefore with all the company of heaven
we raise our voices to proclaim the glory of your name. [v]

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest. [vi]

Blessed are you, O God of the universe. 
Your mercy is everlasting
and your faithfulness endures from age to age.

Praise to you for creating the heavens and the earth. 
Praise to you for saving the earth from the waters of the flood. 
Praise to you for bringing the Israelites safely through the sea. 
Praise to you for leading your people
through the wilderness to the land of milk and honey. 
Praise to you for the words and deeds of Jesus, your anointed one. 
Praise to you for the death and resurrection of Christ. 
Praise to you for your Spirit poured out on all nations.

In the night in which he was betrayed,
our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks;
broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: 
Take and eat; this is my body, given for you. 
Do this for the remembrance of me.

Again, after supper, he took the cup,
gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink, saying: 
This cup is the new covenant in my blood,
shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin. 
Do this for the remembrance of me.

With this bread and cup
we remember our Lord’s Passover from death to life
as we proclaim the mystery of faith:

Christ has died. 
Christ is risen. 
Christ will come again.

O God of resurrection and new life: 
Pour out your Holy Spirit on us
and on these gifts of bread and wine. 
Bless this feast. 
Grace our table with your presence.
Come, Holy Spirit.

Reveal yourself to us in the breaking of the bread. 
Raise us up as the body of Christ for the world. 
Breathe new life into us. 
Send us forth, burning with justice, peace and love.
Come, Holy Spirit.

With the ever-blessed Virgin Mary,
blessed Joseph, blessed Faith
and your holy ones of all times and places,
with the earth and all its creatures,
with sun and moon and stars,
we praise you, O God,
blessed and holy Trinity,
now and forever.  Amen. [vii]

The Lord’s Prayer

As our Saviour taught us, let us pray,
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. [viii]

The Breaking of the Bread

How shall we repay you, O Lord,
for all the good things you have done for us?
We will lift up the cup of salvation
and call upon your name.
We will offer you the sacrifice of thanksgiving
and call upon your name.
We will fulfil our vows to you
in the presence of all people. [ix]

The gifts of God for the people of God.
Thanks be to God.
