Lighting of the Advent Candle

Advent Sunday- The Patriarchs

God of Abraham and Sarah, and all the patriarchs of old,

you are our Father too.

Your love is revealed to us in Jesus Christ,

Son of God and Son of David.

Help us in preparing to celebrate his birth

to make our hearts ready for your Holy Spirit

to make his home among us.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,

the light who is coming into the world.

Amen.

 

Second Sunday of Advent- The Prophets

God our Father,

you spoke to the prophets of old

of a Saviour who would bring peace.

You helped them to spread the joyful message

of his coming kingdom.

Help us, as we prepare to celebrate his birth,

to share with those around us

the good news of your power and love.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,

the light who is coming into the world.

Amen.

 

Third Sunday of Advent- John the Baptist

God our Father,

you gave to Zechariah and Elizabeth in their old age

a son called John.

He grew up strong in spirit,

prepared the people for the coming of the Lord,

and baptized them in the Jordan to wash away their sins.

Help us, who have been baptized into Christ,

to be ready to welcome him into our hearts,

and to grow strong in faith by the power of the Spirit.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,

the light who is coming into the world.

Amen.

 

Fourth Sunday of Advent- The Virgin Mary

God our Father,

the angel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary

that she was to be the mother of your Son.

Though Mary was afraid,

she responded to your call with joy.

Help us, whom you call to serve you,

to share like her in your great work

of bringing to our world your love and healing.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,

the light who is coming into the world.

Amen.

 

The priest invites the people to make their confession.

 

A voice cries out in the wilderness,

‘Make straight the way of the Lord.’

So let us listen, and turn to the Lord in penitence and faith.

cf John 1.23

Turn to us again, O God our saviour,

and let your anger cease from us: Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

 

Show us your compassion, O Lord,

and grant us your salvation: Christ, have mercy.

Christ, have mercy.

 

Your salvation is near for those that fear you,

that glory may dwell in our land: Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

 

Absolution

Almighty God,

who forgives all who truly repent,

have mercy upon you X,

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.

All   Amen.

The Sermon

 

The Nicene 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. Amen.

 

The Prayers of Intercession

 

Lord, hear us.                                          Lord, in your mercy.

Lord, graciously hear us.                      Hear our prayer.

 

The Intercessions conclude:

 

Merciful Father,

accept these prayers for the sake of your Son,

our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

The Peace

May the God of peace make you completely holy,

ready for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you.

 

The Offertory

during which bread and wine are presented at the altar.

 

A collection is traditionally taken to support the mission and ministry

of the Parish Church.

 

Please do think about how you are supporting your church during the Lockdown and give as generously as you are able to.

 

Preparation of the Table

& Taking of the Bread and Wine

 

The Berakah (blessing) prayers are said.

 

Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation.

Through your goodness we have this bread to offer, 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 offer, fruit of the vine and work of human hands,

It will become for us the cup of salvation.

Blessed be God for ever.

 

Prayer over the gifts

As the grain once scattered in the fields

and the grapes once dispersed on the hillside

are now reunited on this table in bread and wine,

so, Lord, may your whole Church soon be gathered together

from the corners of the earth into your kingdom. Amen

 

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.

After the Preface, all say:

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.

The Eucharistic Prayer continues.

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.

The Eucharistic Prayer continues

All respond boldly: Amen!

The Lord’s Prayer

As our saviour taught so we pray

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. Amen.

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

 

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.

 

The Giving of Communion

 

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 of Spiritual Communion

You are invited to use this prayer of Spiritual Communion at home.

In union, O Lord with the faithful at every altar of your Church where the Holy Eucharist is now being offered this day, and remembering all those worshipping at home, I long to give you praise and thanksgiving for creation and all the blessings of this life, for the redemption won for us by your life, death and resurrection, for the means of grace and the hope of glory.

I present to you my body and soul as a living sacrifice, with the earnest wish that I may always be united with you. And since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, I pray that you will come spiritually into my heart, I unite myself to you, and embrace you with all the strength of my soul and the life you have given me.

Let nothing ever separate me from you. May I live and die in your love. Amen.

Prayer After Communion

Let us pray

 

The priest says the prayer and all respond: Amen.
