Opening Hymn: Thine be the glory #258

Call to Worship
Today we gather as one small part of God’s great Church.
We gather as the body to celebrate the body of Christ.
We gather to praise God for his gift of grace.
We thank Jesus for being both High Priest and Sacrifice. He is the Shepherd who gave his life for the sheep. He is alive now, interceding on our behalf.
He has sent the Holy Spirit as our strength and comfort.
He assured us of eternal life. He makes us willing and ready to serve him.
We open our hearts to receive his grace.
We open our hands to offer him gifts.
We open our eyes to see his glory.
We open our ears to hear his wisdom.
We open our mouths to sing his praise.
We offer our lives to serve him completely.
We give him ourselves in thankful devotion.
He is Lord!

Sing: There is a Redeemer #358

The Call to Confession: The proof of God’s amazing love is this: while we were sinners Christ died for us. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness that we may receive mercy, trusting in God’s faithfulness and compassion.

The Confession
All: Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength. We have not loved our neighbour as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. Through Christ our Lord. Amen

The Declaration of Pardon
The good news is forgiveness of sin and a new life. Let us commit ourselves to Christ’s way of hope and peace. Thanks be to God who comes among us, setting us free to serve.

The Proclamation of the Word
Almighty God, we ask that your Spirit is in our midst, that we may understand and obey your Word of Truth. Open our hearts that we may love what you command and desire what you promise. Set us free from private distractions and from selfish pride that we may hear and receive your promises. In Jesus’ name. Amen

Pastoral Prayer

The Apostles Creed:
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead, he ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and a life everlasting. AMEN

The Lord’s Supper
M: Brothers and sisters in Christ, the Gospels tell us that on the first day of the week, the day on which our Lord rose from the dead, he appeared to some of his disciples and was made known to them in the breaking of the bread. Come then to the joyful feast of our Lord.

The Thanksgiving
M: Lift up your hearts.
P: We lift them up to the Lord.
M: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
P: It is right to give thanks, it is our joy and peace, at all times and in all places to give thanks to you, Holy Father almighty everlasting God, through Christ, our Lord.

He is the Saviour, whom in your mercy and faithfulness you promised to humanity after the fall, that his truth might come to instruct us, his righteousness to purify us, his strength to sustain us. Since he has promised and sent the Holy Spirit, our Comforter and guide until the day of his return will come, we live in joy in the full confidence of his promises.
Therefore, with the whole company of saints in heaven and on earth, we worship and glorify you, God most holy. Amen

The Institution
M: We give thanks to God the Father that our Saviour, Jesus Christ, before he suffered, gave us this memorial of his sacrifice until he comes again. For the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

The Memorial
By this Holy Supper, we proclaim that Jesus Christ was sent by the Father into the world, that he took upon him our flesh and blood, and bore God’s wrath on the cross.
We confess that he was condemned to die that we might be pardoned, and suffered death that we might live. We proclaim that he is risen to make us right with God, and that he shall come again in the glory of his new creation.

The Invitation
Brothers and sisters in Christ, come for all is ready.
We come, not because we ought, but because we may; Not because we are righteous, but because we are penitent; Not because we are strong, but because we are weak; Not because we are whole, but because we are broken.

Prayer of Consecration M: In your love and mercy, O Lord, grant us your Spirit, so that through these gifts of food and drink we may be more fully united with Christ and with each other. Lift our hearts so that in all the troubles and sorrows of life we may continue in the hope and the promises for the new life of your eternal kingdom. Amen.

Partaking of the Elements
M: The bread which we break is a sharing in the body of Christ.
P: We who are many are one body for we all share in the same loaf.

M: Take, eat, remember and believe that the body of our Lord Jesus Christ was given for a complete remission of all our sins.

M: The cup for which we give thanks is a sharing in the blood of Christ
P: The cup which we drink is our participation in the blood of Christ.

M: Take, drink, remember and believe that the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ was shed for a complete remission of all our sins.

The Thanksgiving
M: Congregation in Christ, since the Lord has fed us at his table, let us rise with thanksgiving, dedicating our selves once again to our Lord Jesus Christ, doing his will in all things.
