Let us pray.

Gracious God,
give us such a vision of your love and power
that we may ever hold fast
to the hope we have in Jesus Christ;
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.[3]

The Proclamation of the Word

The First Reading:  1 Samuel 8.4-11, 16-20

A reading from the First Book of Samuel.

            8.4Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, 5and said to him, “You are old and your sons do not follow in your ways; appoint for us, then, a king to govern us, like other nations.”  6But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to govern us.”  Samuel prayed to the Lord7and the Lordsaid to Samuel, “Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them.  8Just as they have done to me, from the day I brought them up out of Egypt to this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so also they are doing to you.  9Now then, listen to their voice; only — you shall solemnly warn them, and show them the ways of the king who shall reign over them.”

            10So Samuel reported all the words of the Lordto the people who were asking him for a king.  11He said, “These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you:  he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen, and to run before his chariots.

16He will take your male and female slaves, and the best of your cattle and donkeys, and put them to his work.  17He will take one-tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves.  18And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves; but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”

            19But the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel; they said, “No!  but we are determined to have a king over us, 20so that we also may be like other nations, and that our king may govern us and go out before us and fight our battles.”

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

The Psalm:  Psalm 138 from A New Metrical Psalter (1986) alt.

I will give thanks with my whole heart,
before the gods my praise express;
I will bow down before your throne
and praise your love and faithfulness.

Above all things, O Lord my God,
you glorified your name and word;
I called and then you answered me
and gave me increased strength, O Lord.

Rulers on earth who hear your words,
O Lord, will give you thanks and praise
and tell how great your glory is,
and they will sing of all your ways.

Lord, you are high, yet scorn the proud,
protect the lowly on their path;
although I walk in trouble, Lord,
you keep me safe from hostile wrath.

Lord, your strong hand shall save my life
and make your purpose for me sure;
do not forsake what you have made;
your love forever will endure.

The Second Reading: 2 Corinthians 4.13-5.1

A reading from Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians.

            4.13But just as we have the same spirit of faith that is in accordance with scripture — “I believed, and so I spoke” — we also believe, and so we speak, 14because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus, and will bring us with you into his presence.  15Yes, everything is for your sake, so that grace, as it extends to more and more people, may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

            16So we do not lose heart.  Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day.  17For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, 18because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.

            5.1For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

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

Hymn before the Gospel

‘Alleluia’  Common Praise#715 (sung twice)

The Gospel:  Mark 3.19b-35

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark.
Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

            3.19bThen [Jesus] went home; 20and the crowd came together again, so that they could not even eat.  21When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, “He has gone out of his mind.”  22And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebul, and by the ruler of the demons he casts out demons.”  23And he called them to him, and spoke to them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan?  24If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.  25And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.  26And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but his end has come.  27But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his property without first tying up the strong man; then indeed the house can be plundered.
            28“Truly I tell you, people will be forgiven for their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter; 29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin” — 30for they had said, “He has an unclean spirit.”

            31Then his mother and his brothers came; and standing outside, they sent to him and called him.  32A crowd was sitting around him; and they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers and sisters are outside, asking for you.”  33And he replied, “Who are my mother and my brothers?”  34And looking at those who sat around him, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers!  35Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”

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

Hymn after the Gospel

‘Alleluia’  Common Praise#715 (sung twice)

The Sermon

An Affirmation of Faith

Let us declare our faith in God.

We believe in God the Father,
from whom every family 
in heaven and earth is named.

We believe in God the Son,
who lives in our hearts through faith,
and fills us with his love.

We believe in God the Holy Spirit,
who strengthens us
with power from on high.

We believe in one God:
the Author of creation, the Word of redemption
and the Spirit of wisdom.  Amen.[4]

The Prayers of the Community

Intercessions, Petitions and Thanksgivings

The Exchange of the Peace

The peace of the Lord be with you all.
And also with you.

The Holy Communion

The Offertory Hymn

‘Word of God, Come Down on Earth’  Common Praise#446

The Prayer over the Gifts

Let us pray.

God of all creation,
all you have made is good,
and your love endures forever.
You bring forth bread from the earth
and fruit from the vine.
Nourish us with these gifts,
so that we might be for the world
signs of your gracious presence in Jesus Christ,
our Saviour and Lord. Amen.[5]

The Great Thanksgiving

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.

It is indeed right, our duty and our joy,
that we should at all times and in all places
give thanks and praise to you, almighty and merciful God,
through our Saviour Jesus Christ;
who on this day overcame death and the grave,
and by his glorious resurrection 
opened to us the way of everlasting life.
And so, with all the choirs of angels,
with the church on earth and the hosts of heaven,
we praise your name and join their unending hymn: [6]

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. [7]

You are indeed holy, almighty and merciful God.
You are most holy, and great is the majesty of your glory.

You so loved the world that you gave your only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him
may not perish but have eternal life.

We give you thanks for his coming into the world
to fulfill for us your holy will
and to accomplish all things for our salvation.

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.

For as often as we eat of this bread and drink from this cup,
we proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

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

Remembering, therefore, his life-giving passion and death,
his glorious resurrection and ascension,
and the promise of his coming again,
we give thanks to you, holy and gracious God.
Accept our praise and thanksgiving
and with your Word and Holy Spirit
bless us, your servants, and these your gifts of bread and wine,
so that we and all who share this bread and this cup
may be filled with heavenly blessing and grace,
receive the forgiveness of sin,
be formed to live as your holy people
and be given our inheritance with all your saints.

To you, Author of creation, with the Word of redemption
and the Spirit of wisdom, be all honour and glory in your holy church,
now and forever.  Amen. [8]

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.[9]

The Breaking of the Bread

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world.
Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world.
Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world.
Grant us peace.[10]

These are the gifts of God for the people of God.
Thanks be to God.

The Communion of the Community

The Hymn after Communion

‘Here, Lord, We Take the Broken Bread’  Common Praise#65

The Sending Forth of the Community

The Prayer after Communion

Let us pray.

God of abundance,
with this bread of life and cup of salvation
you have united us with Christ,
making us one with all your people.
Now send us forth in the power of your Spirit,
so that we may proclaim your redeeming love to the world
and continue forever in the risen life of Jesus Christ.  Amen.[11]

Glory to God,
whose power, working in us,
can do infinitely more
than we can ask or imagine.
Glory to God from generation to generation,
in the Church and in Christ Jesus,
for ever and ever. Amen.
