HYMN Verse 1

THE 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 Amen

PRAYERS OF PENITENCE

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.  Amen

THE LITURGY OF THE SACRAMENT

The PEACE of the Lord be always with you  And also with you

EUCHARISTIC PRAYER E

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.

Special preface OR

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:

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 () 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, 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

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.

AGNUS DEI

Jesus, lamb of God, have mercy upon us.

Jesus, Bearer of our sins, have mercy upon us.

Jesus, redeemer of the world Grant us peace.

The Body of Christ  Keep us in eternal life  Amen

The Blood of Christ  Shed for us all  Amen

The president receives communion.

Please come forward to share in communion if you wish or remain seated for the Act of Spiritual Communion which follows.

ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits you have given me, 

For all the pains and insults you have borne for me.

Since I cannot now receive you physically, I ask you to come spiritually into my heart.

O most merciful  redeemer, friend and brother,

May I know you more clearly, love you more dearly, follow you more nearly.  Amen
