Welcome to our Sunday worship brought to our homes by Zoom. Today we are ‘anticipating’ the Feast of St. Pater and Paul (29th).After the worship we can have a short chat together.
This is the last Zoom service before the Summer. We hope that from the beginning of September we will live Zoom the service from St. Paul’s. The Wednesday Evening Prayer, and the Friday Bible Study will resume in September.
The preacher this morning is Fr. Leonard.
Priest: Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
All: and also with you.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind but now I see.
T’ was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come
T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far
And Grace will lead us home
Deacon: Our Lord Jesus Christ said; the first commandment is this: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is the
only Lord. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all
your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ There
is no other commandment greater than these. On these two commandments hang all the law and
All: Amen. Lord have mercy.
There is a short period of silence, followed by Confession.
All: Most merciful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we confess that we have sinned in thought, word and deed. We have not loved you with our whole heart. We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us to amend what we are, and direct what we shall be; that we may do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with you, our God. Amen.
Priest: 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.
