10am Order of Service

The Gathering

In the name of the Father, 

and of the Son, 

and of the Holy Spirit.



The Lord be with you

and also with you.


Grace, mercy and peace 

from God our Father 

and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

And also with you.


Collect of Purity (Prayer of Preparation)

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

Our Lord Jesus Christ said:

The first commandment is this:

‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is the only Lord.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, 

with all your soul, with all your mind, 

and with all your strength.’


The second is this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’.

There is no other commandment greater than these.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Amen. Lord, have mercy.


Invitation to confession

God so loved the world

that he gave his only Son Jesus Christ

to save us from our sins,

to be our advocate in heaven,

and to bring us to eternal life.


Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith,

firmly resolved to keep God’s commandments

and to live in love and peace with all.


Almighty God, our heavenly Father, 

we have sinned against you 

and against our neighbour 

in thought, word, and deed, 

through negligence, through weakness, 

through our own deliberate fault.

We are truly sorry 

and repent of all our sins.

For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, 

who died for us, 

forgive us all that is past 

and grant that we may serve you in newness of life 

to the glory of your name.



Most merciful God,

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

we confess that we have sinned

in thought, word and deed.

We have not loved you with our whole heart.

We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves.

In your mercy

forgive what we have been,

help us to amend what we are,

and direct what we shall be;

that we may do justly,

love mercy,

and walk humbly with you, our God.



The Absolution

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.



Gloria in Excelsis

Glory to God in the highest,

and peace to his people on earth.


Lord God, heavenly King,

almighty God and Father,

we worship you, we give you thanks,

we praise you for your glory.


Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,

Lord God, Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world:

have mercy on us;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father: 

receive our prayer.


 For you alone are the Holy One,

you alone are the Lord,

you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,

with the Holy Spirit,

in the glory of God the Father.



The Collect 

The president introduces a period of silent prayer with the words ‘Let us pray’.  The Collect is said, and all respond



The Liturgy of the Word 

Readings - two readings from Scripture including the Psalm.


At the end of each the reader says

This is the word of the Lord.  Thanks be to God.


Gospel Reading

An acclamation may herald the Gospel reading.


When the Gospel is announced the reader says

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to N.

Glory to you, O Lord.


At the end

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, O Christ.




The Creed

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 from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary

and was made man.

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 and the Son, 

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.



Prayers of Intercession

These responses may be used

Lord, in your mercy

hear our prayer.


Lord, hear us.

Lord, graciously hear us.


And at the end

Merciful Father,

accept these prayers

for the sake of your Son,

our Saviour Jesus Christ.



The Liturgy of the Sacrament


The Peace

The president introduces the Peace with a suitable sentence, then says

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you.

Let us offer one another a sign of peace.


Taking of the Bread and Wine

The table is prepared and bread and wine are placed upon it.


The president takes the bread and wine.


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, we give you thanks and praise

through your beloved Son Jesus Christ, your living Word,

through whom you have created all things;

who was sent by you in your great goodness to be our Saviour.


By the power of the Holy Spirit he took flesh;

as your Son, born of the blessed Virgin,

he lived on earth and went about among us;

he opened wide his arms for us on the cross;

he put an end to death by dying for us;

and revealed the resurrection by rising to new life;

so he fulfilled your will and won for you a holy people.


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.

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

Hosanna in the highest.


Lord, you are holy indeed, the source of all holiness;

grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit,

and according to your holy will,

these gifts of bread and wine

may be to us the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ;


who, in the same night that he was betrayed,

took bread and gave you thanks;

he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying:

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

do this in remembrance of me.


In the same way, after supper

he took the cup and gave you thanks;

he gave it to them, saying:

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.


One of these acclamations is used

Great is the mystery of faith:

Christ has died:

Christ is risen:

Christ will come again.


Praise to you, Lord Jesus:

Dying you destroyed our death,

rising you restored our life:

Lord Jesus, come in glory.


Christ is the bread of life:

When we eat this bread and drink this cup,

we proclaim your death, Lord Jesus,

until you come in glory.


Jesus Christ is Lord:

Lord, by your cross and resurrection

you have set us free.

You are the Saviour of the world.


And so, Father, calling to mind his death on the cross,

his perfect sacrifice made once for the sins of the whole world;

rejoicing in his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension,

and looking for his coming in glory,

we celebrate this memorial of our redemption.


As we offer you this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving,

we bring before you this bread and this cup

and we thank you for counting us worthy

to stand in your presence and serve you.


Send the Holy Spirit on your people

and gather into one in your kingdom

all who share this one bread and one cup,

so that we, in the company of Blessed Mary, the Holy Innocents, Saint Mark and all the saints,

may praise and glorify you for ever,

through Jesus Christ our Lord;


by whom, and with whom, and in whom,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

all honour and glory be yours, almighty Father,

for ever and ever.



Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

The power and the glory,

for ever and ever.



Breaking of the Bread

The president breaks the consecrated 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.


Every time we eat this bread

and drink this cup,

we proclaim the Lord’s death

until he comes.


The Agnus Dei is said as the bread is broken

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.


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

The president says one of these invitations to 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.


God’s holy gifts

for God’s holy people.

Jesus Christ is holy,

Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.


Prayer after Communion

Silence is kept.


The Post Communion prayer is said.


The Dismissal 

The president may use a suitable blessing

The Lord be with you

and also with you.


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 of God almighty,

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

be among you and remain with you always.



The President says

Our Mass is ended but our service to God continues as we,

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

In the name of Christ. Amen.


Go in the peace of Christ.

Thanks be to God.
