Hymn: Christ, Whose Glory Fills The Skies

Christ, Whose Glory Fills The Skies

Words: Charles Wesley (1707-88)
Music: from J G Werner's Choralbuch, Leipzig, 1815

Christ, whose glory fills the skies
Christ, the true, the only Light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise,
Triumph o’er the shades of night;
Dayspring from on high, be near,
Daystar, in my heart appear.
Dark and cheerless is the morn
Unaccompanied by Thee;
Joyless is the day’s return,
Till Thy mercy’s beams I see,
Till Thou inward light impart,
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart.
Visit then this soul of mine,
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
Fill me, Radiancy divine,
Scatter all my unbelief;
More and more Thyself display,
Shining to the perfect day.



SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Confession

Hear the words of comfort our Saviour Christ says to all who truly turn to him:

 Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11.28
God so loved the world that he gave his only 
Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
John 3.16

Christ the Light of the world has come to dispel the darkness of our hearts. 
So let us turn to the light and confess our sins.

You, Lord, were born for our salvation.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.


You came as Saviour to bring wholeness and peace.

Christ, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.

You came to bring light into the darkness of our lives.

Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.




Liturgy: 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.

Liturgy: Gospel Reading (part 1)
Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to N.
Glory to you, O Lord.



Reading: John 2:1-11

John 2:1-11

read by Viv Lythgoe

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there,
and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
"Woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My hour has not yet come."
His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so,
and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside
and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."
What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.



Liturgy: Gospel Reading (part 2)
This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.

Hymn: Jesu, Lover Of My Soul

Jesu, Lover Of My Soul

Words: Charles Wesley (1707-88)
Music: Joseph Parry (1841-1903)

Jesu, lover of my soul,
Let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high:
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide;
O receive my soul at last.
Other refuge have I none,
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
Leave, oh, leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me.
All my trust on Thee is stayed,
All my help from Thee I bring;
Cover my defenceless head
With the shadow of Thy wing.
Thou, O Christ, art all I want;
More than all in Thee I find;
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick and lead the blind.
Just and holy is Thy name,
I am all unrighteousness;
Vile and full of sin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.
Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound;
Make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the fountain art,
Freely let me take of Thee;
Spring Thou up within my heart,
Rise to all eternity.



Liturgy: Authorised Affirmation of Faith (E9)
Let us affirm our faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God.
Though he was divine,
he did not cling to equality with God,
but made himself nothing.
Taking the form of a slave,
he was born in human likeness.
He humbled himself
and was obedient to death,
even the death of the cross.
Therefore God has raised him on high,
and given him the name above every name:
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
and every voice proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.



Liturgy: Prayers of Intercession
Lord, in your mercy
hear our prayer.
Merciful Father,
accept these prayers
for the sake of your Son,
our Saviour Jesus Christ.



Liturgy: The Peace
The peace of the Lord be always with you
and also with you.
Let us offer one another a sign of peace.



Hymn: Immortal, Invisible

Immortal, Invisible

Words: Walter C Smith (1824-1908)
Music: Welsh hymn melody

Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, thy great name we praise.
Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might;
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above
Thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.
To all, life thou givest, to both great and small;
In all life thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish, but naught changeth thee.
Great Father of glory; pure Father of light;
Thine angels adore thee, all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render: O help us to see
'tis only the splendor of light hideth thee.
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, thy great name we praise.



Liturgy: Prayer 1
Yours, Lord, is the greatness, the power,
the glory, the splendour, and the majesty;
for everything in heaven and on earth is yours.
All things come from you,
and of your own do we give you.



SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Holy Communion Preface
The Lord is here.
His Spirit is with us.

 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.
Blessed are you, God of all glory,
through your son Jesus Christ.
We worship and adore you.
 He is the Heavenly King, born of Mary.
We worship and adore you

He is the Word of the Father, crying as a baby.
We worship and adore you.

He is robed in glory, wrapped in infant clothes.
We worship and adore you.
Lord of heaven and earth, laid in a manger.
We worship and adore you.
Strong in weakness, glorious in humility,
To him be all praise and glory.
And so we join in with all the company of heaven, worshipping you and saying/singing



SlideSet: Liturgy: 2 verse santus and benedictus using hymn Holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord,
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord,
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come 
Holy. Holy. Holy is the Lord 
Blessed, blessed, blest is he who comes,
blest is he who comes in the Lord’s name
Blessed, blessed, blest is he who comes,
blest is he who comes in the Lord’s name 
Hosanna in the highest heaven,
Blessed blessed blessed is the Lord.



Liturgy: Eucharistic Prayer A
Accept our praises, heavenly Father,
through your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ,
and as we follow his example and obey his command,
grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit
these gifts of bread and wine
may be to us his body and his blood;
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.
To you be glory and praise for ever.
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.
To you be glory and praise for ever.
Therefore, heavenly Father,
we remember his offering of himself
made once for all upon the cross;
we proclaim his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension;
we look for the coming of your kingdom,
and with this bread and this cup
we make the memorial of Christ your Son our Lord.
Great is the mystery of faith:
Christ has died:
Christ is risen:
Christ will come again.
Accept through him, our great high priest,
this our sacrifice of thanks and praise,
and as we eat and drink these holy gifts
in the presence of your divine majesty,
renew us by your Spirit,
inspire us with your love
and unite us in the body of your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
To you be glory and praise for ever.
Through him, and with him, and in him,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
with all who stand before you in earth and heaven,
we worship you, Father almighty,
in songs of everlasting praise:
Blessing and honour and glory and power
be yours for ever and ever.



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.



Liturgy: 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.



SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Prayer After Communion
Lord, by your mercy 
we have feasted upon the bread of life,
and have shared the cup of salvation.
Help us so to live out our days
that our lives may proclaim your wonders;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.



Hymn: Let All The World

Let All The World

Words: George Herbert (1593-1633)
Music: Basil Harwood (1859-1949)

Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
The heav'ns are not too high,
God's praise may thither fly;
The earth is not too low,
God's praises there may grow.
Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
The church with psalms must shout:
No door can keep them out.
But, more than all, the heart
Must bear the longest part.
Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"



SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Dismissal
Let us go in peace
We go into the world to walk in God's light, 
to rejoice in God's love and to reflect God's glory.
