Hymn: As We Are Gathered

As We Are Gathered

Words & Music: John Daniels

As we are gathered, Jesus is here;
One with each other, Jesus is here;
Joined by the Spirit, washed in the blood,
Part of the body, the Church of God.
As we are gathered, Jesus is here;
One with each other, Jesus is here.

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Opening Responses
You will name him Jesus;
he will save his people from their sins.

He will be great;
he will be called the Son of the Most High.

He will be called Emmanuel:
God is with us.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

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: Matthew 4:12-23

Matthew 4:12-23

read by Brownies

When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, he withdrew to Galilee.
Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali—
to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah:
"Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."
From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near."
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people."
At once they left their nets and followed him.
Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them,
and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.

 

 

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

 

 

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: 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.
Amen.

 

 

Hymn: Father, We Love You

Father, We Love You

Words & Music: Donna Adkins (b 1940)

Father, we love You, we worship and adore You;
Glorify Your name in all the earth.
Glorify Your name, glorify Your name,
Glorify Your name in all the earth.
Jesus, we love You, we worship and adore You;
Glorify Your name in all the earth.
Glorify Your name, glorify Your name,
Glorify Your name in all the earth.
Spirit, we love You, we worship and adore You;
Glorify Your name in all the earth.
Glorify Your name, glorify Your name,
Glorify Your name in all the earth.

 

 

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.

 

 

Collect: Collect for The Third Sunday of Epiphany

Collect for:

The Third Sunday of Epiphany

God of all mercy,
your Son proclaimed good news to the poor,
release to the captives,
and freedom to the oppressed:
anoint us with your Holy Spirit
and set all your people free
to praise you in 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.
Amen.

 

 

Hymn: Tell Out, My Soul

Tell Out, My Soul

Words: Timothy Dudley-Smith (b 1926)
Music: W Greatorex (1877-1949)

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord!
Unnumbered blessings give my spirit voice;
Tender to me the promise of his word;
In God my Saviour shall my heart rejoice.
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of His Name!
Make known His might, the deeds His arm has done;
His mercy sure, from age to age the same;
His holy Name, the Lord, the Mighty One.
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of His might!
Powers and dominions lay their glory by.
Proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight,
The hungry fed, the humble lifted high.
Tell out, my soul, the glories of His word!
Firm is His promise, and His mercy sure.
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord
To children's children and for evermore!

 

 

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.
Amen.
