Order for Morning Worship

Order for Morning Worship

Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all
and also with you.

The Confession

Lord God,
we have sinned against you;
we have done evil in your sight.
We are sorry and repent.
Have mercy on us according to your love.
Wash away our wrongdoing and
cleanse us from our sin.
Renew a right spirit within us
and restore to us the joy of your salvation,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

May the Father of all mercies
cleanse us from our sins,
and restore us in his image
to the praise and glory of his name,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Praise and Thanksgiving

Let everything be said and done
in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God through Jesus Christ.

Sing psalms, hymns and sacred songs:
let us sing to God with thankful hearts.

Open our lips, Lord:
and we shall praise your name.

Come, let us sing to the Lord our God;
raise the roof to the Rock of rescue.
Come into the presence of the Lord with thanks;
raise the rafters with songs of praise.
The Lord is the great God, over all;
greater than every other power.
He holds the depths of the earth in his hands,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The ocean is the Lord’s: it was made by God;
the land was formed by his own hands.
Come, let us bow before the Lord our maker;
with humble hearts we worship God.
The Lord is God and we are his;
we are the Shepherd’s very own flock.

The peace of the Lord be with you always.
And also with you.

Scripture Readings and Sermon

Affirming our Faith

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe 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 to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will 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 the life everlasting.
Amen.

Praying with the Church

As our Saviour taught us, so we pray
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.
