Liturgy: The Greeting
The Lord be with you
and also with you.



Hymn: And Are We Yet Alive

And Are We Yet Alive

Words: Charles Wesley (1707-88)
Music: Hans Georg Nägeli (1773-1836)

And are we yet alive,
And see each other's face?
Glory and praise to Jesus give
For His redeeming grace.
Preserved by power divine
To full salvation here,
Again in Jesus' praise we join,
And in His sight appear.
What troubles have we seen,
What conflicts have we passed,
Fightings without, and fears within,
Since we assembled last.
But out of all the Lord
Hath brought us by His love;
And still He doth His help afford,
And hides our life above.
Then let us make our boast
Of His redeeming power,
Which saves us to the uttermost,
Till we can sin no more.
Let us take up the cross
Till we the crown obtain;
And gladly reckon all things loss,
So we may Jesus gain.



Liturgy: General Word (A39)
Lord, speak to us
that we may hear your word.
Move among us
that we may behold your glory.
Receive our prayers
that we may learn to trust you.



Liturgy: 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.



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.



Reading: Jeremiah 18:1-6

Jeremiah 18:1-6

read by Carolyn Fish

This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD:
"Go down to the potter's house, and there I will give you my message."
So I went down to the potter's house, and I saw him working at the wheel.
But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.
Then the word of the LORD came to me.
He said, "Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?" declares the LORD. "Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.



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

Hymn: Change My Heart, O God

Change My Heart, O God

Words & Music: Eddie Espinosa

Change my heart, O God,
Make it ever true;
Change my heart, O God,
May I be like you.
You are the Potter,
I am the clay;
Mould me and make me,
This is what I pray.



Liturgy: Authorised Affirmation of Faith (E12)
Let us declare our faith in God.
We believe in God the Father,
from whom every family
in heaven and on earth is named.
We believe in God the Son,
who lives in our hearts through faith,
and fills us with his love.
We believe in God the Holy Spirit,
who strengthens us
with power from on high.
We believe in one God;
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.



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.



Hymn: Oh Breath Of Life

Oh Breath Of Life

Words: Bessie Porter Head (1850-1936)
Music: Mary J Hammond (1878-1964)

O Breath of life, come sweeping through us,
Revive your church with life and pow'r;
O Breath of Life, come, cleanse, renew us,
And fit your church to meet this hour.
O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,
Till humbly we confess our need;
Then in your tenderness remake us,
Revive, restore, for this we plead.
O Breath of love, come breathe within us,
Renewing thought and will and heart;
Come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us,
Revive your church in ev'ry part.
O Heart of Christ, once broken for us,
'tis there we find our strength and rest;
Our broken, contrite hearts now solace,
And let your waiting church be blest.
Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating
While harvest fields are vast and white?
Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting,
Equip your church to spread the light.



Collect: Collect for The Twelfth Sunday after Trinity

Collect for:

The Twelfth Sunday after Trinity

God of constant mercy,
who sent your Son to save us:
remind us of your goodness,
increase your grace within us,
that our thankfulness may grow,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.



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.



Hymn: Breathe On Me, Breath Of God

Breathe On Me, Breath Of God

Words: Edwin Hatch (1835-89)
Music: Robert Jackson (1840-1914)

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what Thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.
Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with Thee I will one will,
To do and to endure.
Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.
Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.



Liturgy: The Grace
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
be with us all evermore.
