A time for reflection and confession:

 

Leader:        In baptism we died with Christ,

                   So that as Christ was raised from the dead,

                   We might walk in newness of life.

                   Let us receive new life in him

                   As we confess our sin in penitence and faith                 

c f Romans  6:4

All:              Like Mary at the empty tomb,

                   We fail to grasp the wonder of your presence.

Leader:        Lord, have mercy;

All:             Christ, have mercy.

 

All:              Like the disciples behind locked doors,

                   We are afraid to be seen as your followers.

Leader:        Lord, have mercy;

All:             Christ, have mercy.

 

All:              Like Thomas in the upper room,

                   We are slow to believe.

Leader:        Lord, have mercy;

All:             Christ, have mercy.

 

Leader:        May the God of love and power

                   Forgive you and free you from your sins,

                   Heal and strengthen you by his Spirit,

                   And raise you to new life in Christ our Lord.

                   Amen.

 

Collect Prayer:

 

                   Risen Christ,

                   Faithful shepherd of your Father’s sheep:

                   Teach us to hear your voice

                   And to follow your command,

                   That all your people may be gathered into one flock,

                   To the glory of God the Father.

                   Amen.

 

 

Reading :             Acts 4: 5-12   © NRSV

The next day their rulers, elders, and scribes assembled in Jerusalem, with Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John,[a] and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family. When they had made the prisoners stand in their midst, they inquired, ‘By what power or by what name did you do this?’ Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, ‘Rulers of the people and elders, if we are questioned today because of a good deed done to someone who was sick and are asked how this man has been healed, 10 let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that this man is standing before you in good health by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead. 11 This Jesus is

“the stone that was rejected by you, the builders;
    it has become the cornerstone.”

12 There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among mortals by which we must be saved.’

 

 

Reading:    1 John 3: 16-24     ©NRSV      

 

16 We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us—and we ought to lay down our lives for one another. 17 How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister[a] in need and yet refuses help?

18 Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action. 19 And by this we will know that we are from the truth and will reassure our hearts before him 20 whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21 Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have boldness before God; 22 and we receive from him whatever we ask, because we obey his commandments and do what pleases him.

23 And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. 24 All who obey his commandments abide in him, and he abides in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit that he has given us.

 

Homily

 

 

Let us pray….

 

 

Affirmation of faith

 

All:             We believe in God above us,

                   Maker and sustainer of all life,

                   Of sun and moon,

                   Of male and female.

 

                   We believe in God beside us,

                   Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh,

                   Born of a woman, servant of the poor,

                   Tortured and nailed to a tree.

 

                   A man of sorrows, he died forsaken.

                   He descended into the earth

                   To the place of death.

 

                   On the third day he rose from the tomb.

                   He ascended into heaven

                   To be everywhere present,

                   And his kingdom will come on earth.

 

                   We believe in God within us,

                   The Holy Spirit of Pentecostal fire,

                   Life-giving breath of the church,

                   Spirit of healing and forgiveness,

                   Source of resurrection and of eternal life.

                   Amen.

 

                  

Now let us pray together

INTERCESSIONS (end with Lord’s Prayer) led by Martin Kingston

 

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer together

                   Our Father in heaven,

                   Hallowed be your name,

                   Your kingdom come,

                   Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,

                   Give us today our daily bread,

                   Forgive us our sins,

                   As we forgive those who sin against us,

                   Save us in the time of trial

                   And deliver us from evil,

                   For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,

                   Now and forever. Amen.

 

 

Ending:

Leader:        This is love, not that we loved God,

All:             but that he loved us and sent his son.

 

                   He is the sacrifice for our sins,

All:             that we might live through him.

 

                   If God loves us so much

All:             We ought to love one another.

 

                   If we love one another,

All:             God lives in us.

cf 1 John 4: 12

                            

Blessing:

                  

                   May Christ,

                   Who out of defeat brings new hope and a new future,

                   Fill you with his new life;

                   And the blessing of God almighty,

                   The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

                   Be with you and remain with you always, Amen.

 

 

All:    We go into the world to walk in God’s light,

          To rejoice in God’s love and to reflect God’s glory. Amen.
