Mid-week Services Streamed on Zoom

 
Holy Communion at 10am on the 1st, 3rd & 4th (& 5th) Wednes-day of each month
Holy Communion at 7pm on the 2nd Thursday of each month
Night Prayer at 9pm on the 1st, 3rd & 4th (& 5th) Thursday of each month

 

We are moving Night Prayer to a Wednesday evening.  It will alternate with the morning 10am Holy Communion.

If you are interested in saying Night Prayer more often there is a free Daily Prayer App from the Church of England that can be downloaded onto your tablet or smart phone and then you would have Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer with all the readings straight to your screen anytime you wanted!  It is very user friendly and highly recommended.

Almighty God,
to whom all hearts are open,
all desires known,

cleanse the thoughts of our hearts,
by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit,
that we may perfectly love you,
and worthily magnify your holy name;
through Christ our Lord,
Amen

THE EUCHARISTIC PRAYER
The Lord be with you
And also with you
Lift up your hearts
We lift them to the Lord
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God
It is right to give thanks and praise
[The prayer then continues until..]
You made us all, each wonderfully different
To join with the angels and sing your praise:
Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
[We pray for the Holy Spirit to come and we remember the Last Supper until.. ]
And now with all your saints,
we give you glory
Through Jesus Christ
In the strength of the Spirit
Today and for ever. Amen
 
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen
 
THE BREAKING OF BREAD
We break this bread
To share in the body of Christ
Though we are many, we are one body
because we all share in one bread.

Jesus Christ is holy, Jesus Christ is Lord,
To the glory of God the Father. Amen

united us with Christ
and given us a foretaste of the heavenly banquet
prepared for all peoples. Amen

And may the blessing…
Amen
 
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen
