HYMN: 352 CP Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found, Was blind, but now I see.


T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear and Grace, my fears relieved. How precious did that Grace appear the hour I first believed.


Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come; 'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far and Grace will lead me home.


The Lord has promised good to me. His word my hope secures. He will my shield and portion be, as long as life endures.


When we've been here ten thousand years bright shining as the sun. We've no less days to sing God's praise than when we've first begun.


THE WORD

A Reading from the letter of Paul to the Colossians (1:1-14)

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,

To the saints and faithful brothers and sisters in Christ in Colossae:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father.

In our prayers for you we always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. You have heard of this hope before in the word of the truth, the gospel that has come to you. Just as it is bearing fruit and growing in the whole world, so it has been bearing fruit among yourselves from the day you heard it and truly comprehended the grace of God. This you learned from Epaphras, our beloved fellow-servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf, and he has made known to us your love in the Spirit.

For this reason, since the day we heard it, we have not ceased praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you may lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God. May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Listen for the leading of the Spirit Thanks be to God.


GRADUAL HYMN: 601 CP God Whose Giving Knows No Ending


God, whose giving knows no ending, from your rich and endless store-- nature's wonder, Jesus' wisdom, costly cross, grave's shattered door-- gifted by you, we turn to you, offering up ourselves in praise; thankful song shall rise forever, gracious Donor of our days.


Skills and time are ours for pressing toward the goals of Christ, your Son: all at peace in health and freedom, races joined, the Church made one. Now direct our daily labour, lest we strive for self alone. Born with talents, make us servants fit to answer at your throne.


Treasure, too, you have entrusted, gain through powers your grace conferred, ours to use for home and kindred, and to spread the gospel word. Open wide our hands in sharing, as we heed Christ's ageless call, healing, teaching, and reclaiming, serving you by loving all.


The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. Luke (10:25-37)

Glory to you Lord Jesus Christ

Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he said, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What do you read there?’ He answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.’ And he said to him, ‘You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.’

But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ Jesus replied, ‘A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan while travelling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, “Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you spend.” Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbour to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?’ He said, ‘The one who showed him mercy.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do likewise.’

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.


HOMILY


The Apostles Creed

Let us confess the faith of our baptism


I BELIEVE IN GOD the Father Almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,

who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit,

born of the woman Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died and was buried.

He descended to the dead,

the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated on the right hand of God;

he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.


ANNOUNCEMENTS


THE OFFERTORY


OFFERTORY HYMN: CP 494 Not for Tongues of Heaven’s Angels


Not for tongues of heaven's angels, not for wisdom to discern, not for faith that masters mountains, for this better gift we yearn:

may love be ours, Lord; may love be ours.

May love be ours, O Lord.


Love is humble; love is gentle; love is tender, true and kind;

love is gracious, ever patient, generous of heart and mind: may love be ours, Lord; may love be ours. May love be ours, O Lord.


Never jealous, never selfish, love will not rejoice in wrong; never boastful, nor resentful, love believes and suffers long: may love be ours, Lord; may love be ours. May love be ours, O Lord.


In the day this world is fading faith and hope will play their part, but when Christ is seen in glory love shall reign in every heart: may love be ours, Lord; may love be ours. May love be ours, O Lord.


In the day this world is fading faith and hope will play their part, but when Christ is seen in glory love shall reign in every heart: may love be ours, Lord; may love be ours. May love be ours, O Lord.

Yours, Lord, is the greatness, the power and the glory.

All things come from you, and of your own do we give you.

Lord in your mercy Hear our prayer


CONFESSIONS ARE OFFERED

to save us from our sins, to be our advocate in heaven,

and to bring us to eternal life.


Trusting in this good news let us offer our Confessions.

(Silence)

God our creator,

we have sinned against you

and against our fellow human beings,

in thought and word and deed.

We are truly sorry and repent.

Forgive us all that is past,

free us from our sin

and help us serve you

in newness of life

to the glory of your name.

THE CONSECRATION


The Lord is here

God’s Spirit is with us.


Lift up your hearts

We lift them to the Lord.


Let us give thanks to the Lord our God

It is right to give God thanks and praise.


It is not only our right, it is our duty and our joy,

to give you thanks and praise, holy Father,

through Jesus Christ, your only Son, our Lord: for he is your living Word:

through him you have created all things from the beginning,

and formed us in your own image:

Through him you have freed us from the slavery of sin,

giving him to be born as human, to die upon the cross, and to rise again for us:

Through Jesus you have made us a people for your own possession,

exalting him to your right hand on high and sending upon us your holy and life-giving Spirit.


Therefore with angels and archangels,

and with all the company of heaven,

we proclaim your great and glorious Name,

for ever praising you and saying:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.


Accept our praises, heavenly Creator,

through your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ:

and as we obey his command, grant that by the power of your Spirit

these gifts of bread and wine may be to us his body and his blood.


Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.


For in the same night that Jesus was betrayed, he took bread:

and after giving you thanks, he broke it,

gave it to his disciples, and said,

“Take, eat: this is my body which is given for you.

Do this in remembrance of me.”

Again, after supper, he took the cup:

he gave you thanks, and gave it to them saying,

“Drink this, all of you:

for this is my blood of the new Covenant

which is shed for you and for many,

for the forgiveness of sins.

Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”


Therefore, heavenly Father,

with this bread and this cup we proclaim his perfect sacrifice

and we look for his coming in glory.

As we eat and drink these holy gifts

renew us by your Spirit, inspire us with your love,

and unite us in the body of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.


Blessing and honour and glory and power be yours

for ever and ever. Amen.


THE PEACE


The Breaking of the Bread

We break this bread to share in the body of Christ.

Though we are many, we are one body,

because we all share in one bread.


The peace of the Lord be always with you.

And also with you.


As our Saviour has taught us, so we 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


THE COMMUNION


THE COMMISSION


Creator of all,

we give you thanks and praise,

that when we were still far off

you met us in your Son and brought us home.



Thank you for feeding us through Jesus Christ.

In him we offer you ourselves to be a living sacrifice.

Send us out in the power of your Spirit

to live and work to your praise and glory. Amen.


Blessing

Christ the good shepherd bring you and

all who hear his voice to be one flock,

gathered into one fold and –

The blessing of God Almighty, the undivided Trinity

be among you, and remain with you always. Amen.


HYMN: Here in this Place New Light is Streaming

Here in this place, new light is streaming, now is the darkness vanished away. See, in this space, our fears and our dreamings, brought here to you in the light of this day. Gather us in - the lost and forsaken, gather us in - the blind and the lame. Call to us now, and we shall awaken, we shall arise at the sound of our name. We are the young - our lives are a mystery, we are the old - who yearn for your face. We have been sung throughout all of history, called to be light to the whole human race. Gather us in - the rich and the haughty, gather us in - the proud and the strong. Give us a heart so meek and so lowly, give us the courage to enter the song. Here we will take the wine and the water, here we will take the bread of new birth. Here you shall call your sons and your daughters, call us anew to be salt for the earth. Give us to drink the wine of compassion, give us to eat the bread that is you. Nourish us well, and teach us to fashion lives that are holy and hearts that are true. Not in the dark of buildings confining, not in some heaven, light years away, but here in this place, the new light is shining; now is the Kingdom, now is the day. Gather us in - and hold us forever, gather us in - and make us your own. Gather us in - all peoples together, fire of love in our flesh and our bone.


The Dismissal

Go in peace and serve the Lord. In the name of Christ.

Thanks be to God. Amen. Alleluia!
