Welcome to Emmanuel

 

 

Liturgy: Advent 1
Blessed are you, sovereign Lord, God of our ancestors:
to you be praise and glory for ever.
You called the patriarchs to live by the light of faith
and to journey in the hope of your promised fulfilment.
May we be obedient to your call
and be ready and watchful to receive your Christ,
a lamp to our feet and a light to our path;
for you are our light and our salvation.
Blessed be God for ever.

 

 

Hymn: Come And See The Shining Hope

Come And See The Shining Hope

Words: Christopher Martin Idle (b 1938)
Music: traditional American melody

Come and see the shining hope that Christ's apostle saw;
On the earth, confusion but in heaven an open door,
Where the living creatures praise the Lamb for evermore:
Love has the victory for ever!
Amen, he comes! to bring his own reward!
Amen, praise God! for justice now restored;
Kingdoms of the world become the kingdom of the Lord:
Love has the victory for ever!
All the gifts you send us, Lord, are faithful, good and true;
Holiness and righteousness are shown in all you do:
Who can see your greatest Gift and fail to worship you?
Love has the victory for ever!
Amen, he comes! to bring his own reward!
Amen, praise God! for justice now restored;
Kingdoms of the world become the kingdom of the Lord:
Love has the victory for ever!
Power and salvation all belong to God on high!
So the mighty multitudes of heaven make their cry,
Singing Hallelujah! where the echoes never die:
Love has the victory for ever
Amen, he comes! to bring his own reward!
Amen, praise God! for justice now restored;
Kingdoms of the world become the kingdom of the Lord:
Love has the victory for ever!

 

 

Liturgy: Advent 1 - The Advent Hope
Jesus said, ‘Keep awake,
for you do not know
on what day your Lord is coming.’
Amen. Come soon, Lord Jesus!
The first candle is lit and this response is used

Jesus is the light of the world.
A light no darkness can ever put out.

 

 

Hymn: Christmas Is Coming

Christmas Is Coming

Words & Music: John L Bell (b 1949)

Christmas is coming
The Church is glad to sing
And let the advent candles
Brightly burn in a ring.
The first is for God's promise
To put the wrong things right,
And bring to earth's darkness
The hope of love and light.
Christmas is coming
The Church is glad to sing
And let the advent candles
Brightly burn in a ring.
The second is for the Prophet
Who said that Christ would come.
With good news for many
And angry words for some.
Christmas is coming
The Church is glad to sing
And let the advent candles
Brightly burn in a ring.
The third is for the Baptist,
Who cried ‘Prepare the way,
Be ready for Jesus,
Both now and every day’
Christmas is coming
The Church is glad to sing
And let the advent candles
Brightly burn in a ring.
The fourth is for the virgin,
Who mothered God’s own Son,
And sang how God’s justice
Was meant for everyone.
Christmas is coming
The Church is glad to sing
And let the advent candles
Brightly burn in a ring.
At last we light the candle,
Kept new for Christmas Day,
This shines bright for Jesus,
New born, and here to stay.
Christ is among us
The candles in a ring
Remind us that our saviour
Will light up everything.

 

 

Reading: Luke 21:25-36

Luke 21:25-36

read by Scouts

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.
People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.
At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."
He told them this parable: "Look at the fig tree and all the trees.
When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near.
Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
"Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
"Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.
For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth.
Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

 

 

Liturgy: Readings
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Liturgy: Authorised Affirmation of Faith (E11)
We say together in faith
Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.
We believe in God the Father,
who created all things:
for by his will they were created
and have their being.
We believe in God the Son,
who was slain:
for with his blood,
he purchased us for God,
from every tribe and language,
from every people and nation.
We believe in God the Holy Spirit:
the Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come!'
Even so come, Lord Jesus!
Amen.

 

 

Liturgy: A1
When the Lord comes,
he will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness,
and will disclose the purposes of the heart.
Therefore in the light of Christ let us confess our sins.

 

 

Liturgy: Prayers of Penitence
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: Lent: Absolution (1)
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. Amen.

 

 

Hymn: Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace

Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace

Words & Music: Sebastian Temple (1928-97)

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me bring your love.
Where there is injury, Your pardon, Lord;
And where there's doubt, true faith in You.
Oh, Master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love with all my soul.
Make me a channel of your peace
Where there's despair in life, let me bring hope
Where there is darkness, only light
And where there's sadness, ever joy.
Oh, Master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love with all my soul.
Make me a channel of your peace
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
In giving to all men that we receive
And in dying that we're born to eternal life.

 

 

Liturgy: Words for dedication (I3)
Lord Jesus Christ, you emptied yourself, taking the form of a servant.

Through your love, make us servants of one another.
Lord Jesus Christ, for our sake you became poor.

May our lives and gifts enrich the life of your world.

 

 

Collect: Collect for The First Sunday of Advent

Collect for:

The First Sunday of Advent

Almighty God,
as your kingdom dawns,
turn us from the darkness of sin to the
light of holiness,
that we may be ready to meet you
in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

 

 

Liturgy: The Lord's Prayer
As our Saviour taught us, so we pray
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.
Amen.

 

 

Hymn: To God Be The Glory

To God Be The Glory

Words: Fanny Crosby (1820-1915)
Music: William H Doane (1832-1915)

To God be the glory, great things he has done;
So loved he the world that he gave us his Son,
Who yielded his life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life-gate that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord; let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord; let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son,
And give him the glory; great things he has done.
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord; let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord; let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son,
And give him the glory; great things he has done.
Great things he has taught us, great things he has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer and higher and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord; let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord; let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son,
And give him the glory; great things he has done.

 

 

Liturgy: P1
Christ the Sun of Righteousness shine upon you,
scatter the darkness from before your path,
and make you ready to meet him when he comes in glory;
and the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be with you and remain with you and all those you love and care for, this day and always.

 

 

Liturgy: Dismissal
The Lord is coming.
Come soon, Lord Jesus,
and scatter the darkness before you.
Let us go in peace – our hope is near.
In the name of Christ. Amen.
