Hymn: Will You Come And Follow Me

Will You Come And Follow Me

Words: John L Bell (b 1949)
Graham Maule (b 1958)
Music: traditional Scottish melody

Will you come and follow me
If I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know
And never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown,
Will you let my name be known,
Will you let my life be grown
In you and you in me?
Will you leave yourself behind
If I but call your name?
Will you care for cruel and kind
And never be the same?
Will you risk the hostile stare
Should your life attract or scare?
Will you let me answer prayer
In you and you in me?
Will you let the blinded see
If I but call your name?
Will you set the prisoners free
And never be the same?
Will you kiss the leper clean
And do such as this unseen,
And admit to what I mean
In you and you in me?
Will you love the ‘you’ you hide
If I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside
And never be the same?
Will you use the faith you’ve found
To reshape the world around
Through my sight and touch and sound
In you and you in me?
Lord, your summons echoes true
When you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you
And never be the same.
In your company I’ll go
Where your love and footsteps show.
Thus I’ll move and live and grow
In you and you in me.

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: Safeguarding Sunday Opening Prayer
Loving Father God, we come to you in the knowledge that you hold all your children in unconditional love. 
We lift to you those who are vulnerable and in need of protection, give them your safety, comfort and peace. 

We cry to you for those who are hurting and whose trust has been broken, give them your healing, restoration and justice. 
We bring to you those who seek to forgive others who have hurt them, give them your strength, courage and hope. 
For those who have caused your children to stumble, lead them to seek your forgiveness and to enter into true repentance. 

Thank you for all who give their time, knowledge, and skills to make our communities safer, give them your wisdom, guidance and grace. 

For ourselves, we ask you to give us your heart for the vulnerable, the oppressed, the voiceless and the forgotten. 
Help us to see them as you see them; to value them as you value them, and to nurture and protect them as you desire. 
Help each one of us play our part in creating safer places for all your people. 
In your name we pray, Amen

Hymn: A Dream Of Dignity

A Dream Of Dignity

Words: George Stuart
Music: John Darwall (1731-38)

A dream of dignity
For all humanity
It is a dream so bold;
‘Can’t happen,’ we’ve been told;
But we can strive
To keep alive
This hope for human harmony
A dream of dignity
For all humanity;
A dream that Jesus saw
Was not achieved through law;
A change of heart
Can be the start
Of bringing in love’s ministry.
A dream of dignity
For all humanity
Is Jesus’ call to care;
Life can be so unfair
He calls for change
To re-arrange
All cultures of inequity.
A dream of dignity
For all humanity
Is still with us today;
We find in Jesus’ way
How to respect
And thus protect
The beauty of both you and me.

 

 

Collect: Collect for Christ the King

Collect for:

Christ the King

Eternal Father,
whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven
that he might rule over all things as Lord and King:
keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit
and in the bond of peace,
and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

 

 

Reading: Isaiah 41:8-13

Isaiah 41:8-13

read by Ann Barlow

"But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend,
I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, 'You are my servant'; I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
"All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.
Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.
For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

 

 

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

 

 

Hymn: May This Place Be One Of Nurture

May This Place Be One Of Nurture

Words: Ally Barrett
Music: Maurice Bevan (b 1921)

May this place be one of nurture
Where we all may come to know
How your endless love sustains us
As we live and move and grow.
May we work to build your kingdom
Full of truth and light and grace,
Living life in all its fullness
Held in one divine embrace.
For our negligence and failures
You have called us to repent,
Drawing energy for action
From the voices of lament.
As the secret hurts long hidden
May at last be brought to light,
May the truth unlock the freedom
That is every person’s right.
When the smallest child is valued,
And the strong empower the weak,
And each human life is hallowed
And the unheard voices speak:
Then your justice stands like mountains
And your mercy falls like rain,
And you hold the broken hearted
Till they learn to live again.
So, in gratitude we praise you,
And we lift to you in prayer,
All the people you are calling
To this ministry of care.
Give us wisdom, grace and courage,
Holding fast to all that’s good,
Seeing Christ in one another
We will love and serve our Lord.

 

 

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

 

 

Reading: Mark 12:28-31

Mark 12:28-31

read by Barbara Thomas

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"
"The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'
The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."

 

 

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

 

 

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.
Amen.

 

 

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.
Amen.

 

 

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: It Is Well With My Soul

It Is Well With My Soul

Words: Horatio Gates Spafford (1828-88)
Music: Philip Paul Bliss (1838-76)

When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
My sin - O, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin - not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
And, Lord haste the day when the faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend
Even so - it is well with my soul
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

 

 

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.

 

 

Liturgy: Eucharistic Prayer F
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.
You are worthy of our thanks and praise,
Lord God of truth,
for by the breath of your mouth
you have spoken your word,
and all things have come into being.
You fashioned us in your image
and placed us in the garden of your delight.
Though we chose the path of rebellion
you would not abandon your own.
Again and again you drew us into your covenant of grace.
You gave your people the law and taught us by your prophets
to look for your reign of justice, mercy and peace.
As we watch for the signs of your kingdom on earth,
we echo the song of the angels in heaven,
evermore 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.
Lord God, you are the most holy one,
enthroned in splendour and light,
yet in the coming of your Son Jesus Christ
you reveal the power of your love
made perfect in our human weakness.
Amen. Lord, we believe.

Embracing our humanity,
Jesus showed us the way of salvation;
loving us to the end,
he gave himself to death for us;
dying for his own,
he set us free from the bonds of sin,
that we might rise and reign with him in glory.
Amen. Lord, we believe.
On the night he gave up himself for us all
he 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.
Amen. Lord, we believe.
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.
Amen. Lord, we believe.
Therefore we proclaim the death that he suffered on the cross,
we celebrate his resurrection, his bursting from the tomb,
we rejoice that he reigns at your right hand on high
and we long for his coming in glory.
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
As we recall the one, perfect sacrifice of our redemption,
Father, by your Holy Spirit let these gifts of your creation
be to us the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ;
form us into the likeness of Christ
and make us a perfect offering in your sight.
Amen. Come, Holy Spirit.
Look with favour on your people
and in your mercy hear the cry of our hearts.
Bless the earth,
heal the sick,
let the oppressed go free
and fill your Church with power from on high.
Amen. Come, Holy Spirit.
Gather your people from the ends of the earth
to feast with [N and] all your saints
at the table in your kingdom,
where the new creation is brought to perfection
in Jesus Christ our Lord;
by whom, and with whom, and in whom,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
all honour and glory be yours, almighty Father,
for ever and ever.
Amen.

 

 

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.

 

 

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.

 

 

Liturgy: Giving of Communion
Draw near with faith.
Receive the body of our Lord Jesus Christ
which he gave for you,
and his blood which he shed for you.
Eat and drink
in remembrance that he died for you,
and feed on him in your hearts
by faith with thanksgiving.

 

 

Liturgy: Prayer after Communion
Almighty God, we thank you for feeding us with the body and blood of your Son Jesus Christ. Through him we offer you our souls and bodies to be a living sacrifice.
Send us out in the power of your Spirit to live and work to your praise and glory.
Amen.

Brother, Sister, Let Me Serve You

Words & Music: Richard A M Gillard (b 1953)

Brother, sister let me serve you.
Let me be as Christ to you;
Pray that I may have the grace to
Let you be my servant too.
We are pilgrims on a journey,
And companions on the road;
We are here to help each other
Walk the mile and bear the load.
I will hold the Christ-light for you
In the night-time of your fear;
I will hold my hand out to you,
Speak the peace you long to hear.
I will weep when you are weeping;
When you laugh I'll laugh with you;
I will share your joy and sorrow till we've seen this journey through.
When we sing to God in heaven
We shall find such harmony,
Born of all we've known together
Of Christ's love and agony.
Brother, sister let me serve you.
Let me be as Christ to you;
Pray that I may have the grace to
Let you be my servant too.
