Hymn Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty

1 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

2 Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3 Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee
perfect in power, in love, and purity.

4 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity! (by  Reginald Heber -1783 to1826)

Preparation

The night has passed, and the day lies open before us; let us pray with one heart and mind.

Grace mercy and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you

All: And also with you.

This is the day that the Lord has made.

All:  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

We have come together in the name of Christ to offer our praise and thanksgiving  to hear and receive God’s holy word, to pray for the needs of the world, and to seek the forgiveness of our sins, that by the power of the Holy Spirit, we may give ourselves to the service of God.

All: We say Sorry

Jesus says, ‘Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is close at hand.’

So let us turn away from our sins and turn to Christ, confessing our sins in penitence and faith.

All: Lord God, we have sinned against you;

We have done evil in your sight.

We are sorry and repent.

Have mercy on us according to your love.

Wash away our wrongdoing and cleanse us from our sin.

Renew a right spirit within us and restore to us the joy of your salvation;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

May the Father of all mercies cleanse us from our sins, and restore us in His image to the praise and glory of His name through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

All: Amen.

Blessed is the Lord,

All: For He has heard the voice of our prayer;

Therefore shall our hearts dance for joy

All: And in our song will we praise our God. 

Blessed are you, Lord our God, creator and redeemer of all;

to you be glory and praise for ever.

From the waters of chaos you drew forth the world, and in your great love fashioned us in your image. Now, through the deep waters of death, you have brought your people to new birth by raising your Son to life in triumph.

May Christ your light ever dawn in our hearts as we offer you our sacrifice of thanks and praise.

Blessed be God, Father Son and Holy Spirit.

All: Blessed be God for ever.  

Hymn – Revive Thy Work, O Lord Revive

  1. Revive thy work, O Lord,
    thy mighty arm make bare;
    speak with the voice that wakes the dead,
    and make thy people hear.
  2. Revive thy work, O Lord,
    disturb this sleep of death;
    quicken the smould’ring embers now
    by thine almighty breath.
  3. Revive thy work, O Lord,
    create soul-thirst for thee;
    and hung’ring for the Bread of Life
    O may our spirits be.
  4. Revive thy work, O Lord,
    exalt thy precious name;
    and, by the Holy Ghost, our love
    for thee and thine inflame.

Collect for the Trinity Sunday – 12th June 2022

Almighty and everlasting God,

you have given us your servants grace,

by the confession of a true faith,

to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity

and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:

keep us steadfast in this faith,

that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

All: Amen

Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead.

All: And Christ shall give you light.

You have died and your life is hid with Christ in God.

All: Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead.

Set your minds on things that are above,

not on things that are on the earth.

All: And Christ shall give you light.

When Christ our life appears

you will appear with him in glory.

All: Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light. 

Hymn –Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord

                                                          

Our First Reading id taken from Proverbs Chap: 8

1 Listen! Wisdom is calling out. Reason is making herself heard.

2 On the hilltops near the road and at the crossroads she stands.

3 At the entrance to the city, beside the gates, she calls:

4 “I appeal to all of you; I call to everyone on earth. 

22 “The Lord created me first of all, the first of his works, long ago.

23 I was made in the very beginning, at the first, before the world began.

24 I was born before the oceans, when there were no springs of water.

25 I was born before the mountains, before the hills were set in place,

26 before God made the earth and its fields or even the first handful of soil.

27 I was there when he set the sky in place, when he stretched the horizon across the ocean,

28 when he placed the clouds in the sky, when he opened the springs of the ocean

29 and ordered the waters of the sea to rise no further than he said. I was there when he laid the earth’s foundations.

30 I was beside him like an architect, I was his daily source of joy, always happy in his presence –

31 happy with the world and pleased with the human race. 

This is the Word of the Lord

All: Thanks be to God

Here the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ According to – John Chap: 16

12 “I have much more to tell you, but now it would be too much for you to bear.

13 When, however, the Spirit comes, who reveals the truth about God, he will lead you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own authority, but he will speak of what he hears and will tell you of things to come.

14 He will give me glory, because he will take what I say and tell it to you.

15 All that my Father has is mine; that is why I said that the Spirit will take what I give him and tell it to you. 

This is the Word of the Lord

All: Thanks be to God 

Benediction

Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel,

All: who has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty Saviour,

All: born of the house of his servant David. 

Through his holy prophets God promised of old  

All: to save us from our enemies, from the hands of all that hate us, 

To show mercy to our ancestors,

All: and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath God swore to our father Abraham:

All: to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

Free to worship him without fear,

All: holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life. 

And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High,

All: for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

To give his people knowledge of salvation

All: by the forgiveness of all their sins. 

In the tender compassion of our God

All: the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,

All: and to guide our feet into the way of peace.                        (Luke 1.68-79)

All: Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever.

Amen. 

Sermon for Trinity Sunday– unfortunately this is not available

Hymn – I Am Trusting in Thee, Lord Jesus  

  • I am trusting you, Lord Jesus,
    trusting only you;
    trusting you for full salvation,
    free and true.

 I am trusting you for pardon;

  • at your feet I bow,
    for your grace and tender mercy
    trusting now.
     
  • I am trusting you for cleansing
    in the crimson flood;
    trusting you who made me holy
    by your blood.
     
  • I am trusting you to guide me;
    you alone shall lead,
    ev’ry day and hour supplying
    all my need.
     
  • I am trusting you for power;
    you can never fail.
    Words which you yourself shall give me
    must prevail.
     
  • I am trusting you, Lord Jesus;
    never let me fall.
    I am trusting you forever
    and for all.                                      (by
    Frances Ridley Havergal 1836 to 1879) 

Time of Silence ….. 

We Say Together:

The Creed.

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again;

he ascended into heaven,

he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

and 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.

but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen. 

Hymn – Soldiers of Christ Arise

This is specially for the Ukraine

  • Soldiers of Christ, arise,
    And put your armor on,
    Strong in the strength which God supplies
    Through His eternal Son.
    Strong in the Lord of hosts,
    And in His mighty pow’r,
    Who in the strength of Jesus trusts
    Is more than conqueror.
     
  • Stand then in His great might,
    With all His strength endued,
    And take, to arm you for the fight,
    The panoply of God;
    That, having all things done,
    And all your conflicts passed,
    Ye may o’ercome through Christ alone,
    And stand entire at last.
     
  • Leave no unguarded place,
    No weakness of the soul,
    Take every virtue, every grace,
    And fortify the whole.
    From strength to strength go on,
    Wrestle and fight and pray,
    Tread all the pow’rs of darkness down
    And win the well-fought day.
    (by Charles Wesley – 1707 to 1789)
