Leader:        O Lord open our lips                                           

All:             and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.


Leader:       The earth belongs to God,

All:              the earth and all its people.


Leader:        How good it is, how wonderful,

All:             To live together in unity.


Leader:        Love and faith come together,

All:             Justice and peace join hands.


Leader:        If Christ’s disciples keep silent,

All:             These stones would shout aloud.


Leader:        O Lord open our lips                                           

All:             and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.


Hymn        798 We have a gospel to proclaim     

We have a gospel to proclaim,
Good news for all throughout the earth;
The gospel of a Saviour's name:
We sing His glory, tell His worth.

Tell of His birth at Bethlehem,
Not in a royal house or hall
But in a stable dark and dim:
The Word made flesh, a light for all.

Tell of His death at Calvary,
Hated by those He came to save;
In lonely suffering on the cross
For all He loved His life He gave.

Tell of that glorious Easter morn:
Empty the tomb, for He was free.
He broke the power of death and hell
That we might share His victory.

Tell of His reign at God's right hand,
By all creation glorified;
He sends His Spirit on His Church
To live for Him, the Lamb who died.

Now we rejoice to name Him King:
Jesus is Lord of all the earth.
This gospel message we proclaim:
We sing His glory, tell His worth.



Leader:        Holy God, maker of all

All:             Have mercy on us.


                   Jesus Christ, servant of the poor

All:             Have mercy on us.


                   Holy Spirit, Breath of life.

All:             Have mercy on us.


Let us in silence confess our faults and admit our frailty.


All:             Before God, with the people of God,

                   We confess to our brokenness:

                   To the ways we wound our lives,

                   The lives of others,

                   And the life of the world.


Leader:        May God forgive us all, Christ renew us all,

                   And the Spirit of God enable us to grow in love.

All:             Amen.


The Collect ( a gathering prayer for the day)


Almighty God,

whose only Son has opened for us

a new and living way into your presence:

give us pure hearts and steadfast wills

to worship you in spirit and in truth;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Readings:                                     sit for the reading


Proverbs ch. 31 verses 10 to 28

A capable wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands. She is like the ships of the merchant, she brings her food from far away. She rises while it is still night     and provides food for her household and tasks for her servant-girls. She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength, and makes her arms strong. She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night. She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle. She opens her hand to the poor, and reaches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid for her household when it snows, for all her household are clothed in crimson. She makes herself coverings; her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known in the city gates, taking his seat among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them; she supplies the merchant with sashes. Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her happy; her husband too, and he praises her:


Mark ch. 9 verses 30 to 37

They went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, ‘The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again.’ But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him.

Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, ‘What were you arguing about on the way?’ But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, ‘Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.’ Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.’


This is the word of the Lord.                                

All:  Thanks be to God.


Hymn  170 Father I place into your hands

Father, I place into your hands
The things I cannot do.
Father, I place into Your hands
The things that I’ve been through.
Father, I place into Your hands
The way that I should go,
For I know I always can trust You.

Father, I place into Your hands
My friends and family.
Father, I place into Your hands
The things that trouble me.
Father, I place into Your hands
The person I would be,
For I know I always can trust You.

Father, we love to see Your face,
We love to hear Your voice.
Father, we love to sing Your praise
And in Your name rejoice.
Father, we love to walk with You
And in Your presence rest,
For we know we always can trust You.

Father, I want to be with You
And do the things You do.
Father, I want to speak the words
That You are speaking too.
Father, I want to love the ones
That You will draw to You,
For I know that I am one with You.




The Creed                                                                             We stand


Let us declare our faith in God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


All:      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.

                   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.

Hymn 934   Will you come and follow me

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. 


Leader:        This is the day that the Lord has made;

All:             We will rejoice and be glad in it.


Leader:        We will not offer to God

All:             Offerings that cost us nothing.    


This or another Blessing or the Grace:


                   Christ the Good Shepherd,

                   Who laid down his life for the sheep,

                   Draw us and all who hear his voice,

                   To be one flock within one fold;

                   And the blessing of God Almighty

                   The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

                   Be with us and remain with us always,   Amen.

All:              Filled with the Spirit’s power,

                    We go in the light and peace of Christ.
