XIn the name of the Father,

and of the Son,

and of the Holy Spirit.


The Lord be with you

and also with you.

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.


Prayers of Penitence 

We have not always worshipped God, our creator.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy. We have not always followed Christ, our Saviour.
Christ, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy. We have not always trusted in the Spirit, our guide.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

THE ABSOLUTION  is said by the Priest

Almighty God,

who forgives all who truly repent, have mercy upon you,

+pardon and deliver you from all your sins,

confirm and strengthen you in all goodness, and keep you in life eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect

Prayers of Intercession 

The Peace 

Christ is our peace.

He has reconciled us to God

in one body by the Cross.

We meet in his name and share his peace.

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you.

Let us offer one another a sign of peace.

Preparation of the Table

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation:

       through your goodness we have this bread to set before you,

       which earth has given and human hands have made.

       It will become for us the bread of life.

Blessed be God for ever.

       Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation:

       through your goodness we have this wine to set before you,

       fruit of the vine and work of human hands.

       It will become for us the cup of salvation.

Blessed be God for ever.

The Eucharistic Prayer

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 thanks and praise

Father, you made the world and love your creation.

       You gave your Son Jesus Christ to be our Saviour.

       His dying and rising have set us free from sin and death.

       And so we gladly thank you,

       with saints and angels praising you, and saying:

All    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.

       We praise and bless you, loving Father,

       through Jesus Christ, our Lord;

       and as we obey his command,

       send your Holy Spirit,

       that broken bread and wine outpoured

       may be for us the body and blood of your dear Son.

On the night before he died he had supper with his friends

       and, taking bread, he praised you.

       He broke the bread, gave it to them and said:

       Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;

       do this in remembrance of me.

       When supper was ended he took the cup of wine.

       Again he praised you, gave it to them and said:

       Drink this, all of you;

       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.

So, Father, we remember all that Jesus did,

       in him we plead with confidence his sacrifice

       made once for all upon the cross.

Bringing before you the bread of life and cup of salvation,

       we proclaim his death and resurrection

       until he comes in glory.

Great is the mystery of faith…

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

Lord of all life,

       help us to work together for that day

       when your kingdom comes

       and justice and mercy will be seen in all the earth.

       Look with favour on your people,

       gather us in your loving arms

       and bring us with the Blessed Virgin Mary, Michael,

and all the saints    

to feast at your table in heaven.

       Through Christ, and with Christ, and in Christ,

       in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

       all honour and glory are yours, O loving Father,

       for ever and ever.   Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

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.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.


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.

Agnus Dei

Jesus, Lamb of God, have mercy on us.

Jesus, bearer of our sins, have mercy on us.

Jesus, redeemer of the world, grant us peace.

Giving of Communion

Jesus is the Lamb of God

who takes away the sin of the world.

Blessed are those who are called to his supper.

Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the word, and I shall be healed.


Eternal God,

Comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken,

You have fed us at the table of life and hope.

Teach us the ways of gentleness and peace,

That all the world may acknowledge the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We thank you, Lord,
that you have fed us in this sacrament, united us with Christ,  and given us a foretaste of the heavenly banquet prepared for all peoples. Amen.


The Lord be with you and also with you.

Let us bow our heads to receive God’s blessing.

The peace of God,
which passes all understanding,
keep your hearts and minds
in the knowledge and love of God, and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord; and the blessing …


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