19 - 25 July 2016





Leader: In the Name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Amen


The Leader says:We have come together as the family of God

In our Father’s presence to offer him praise and thanksgiving

to hear and receive his holy word to bring before him the needs of the world

to ask his forgiveness of our sins and to seek his grace

that through his son Jesus Christ

we may give ourselves to his service.

we hymn the Father, Son and Holy Spirit divine.


3 Worthiest art thou at all times to be sung,
with undefilèd tongue, Son of our God, Giver of life, alone!

Therefore in all the world thy glories, Lord, they own.


Leader: Let us call to mind and confess our sins. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us,

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Almighty God our heavenly Father

in penitence we confess

that we have sinned against you
