O sing unto the Lord a new song

O sing unto the Lord a new song:
for he that done marvellous things.
With his own right hand and with his holy arm
hath he gotten himself the victory.
The Lord declares his salvation:
his righteousness hath he openly showed in the sight of the heathen.
He hath remembered his mercy and truth toward the house of Israel:
and all the ends of the world hath seen the salvation of our God.
Show yourselves joyful unto the Lord all ye lands:
Sing, rejoice, and give thanks.

Text: Psalm 98  1-5
Music: Noel de Jongh b.1930


Praise the One who breaks the darkness
with a liberating light.
Praise the One who frees the prisoners
turning blindness into sight.
Praise the One who preached the Gospel
healing every dread disease.
Calming storms and feeding thousands
with the very bread of peace.

Praise the One who blessed the children
with a strong yet gentle word.
Praise the One who drove out demons
with a piercing two-edged sword.
Praise the One who brings cool water
to the desert’s burning sand.
From this well comes living water
quenching thirst in every land.

Praise the one true love incarnate:
Christ who suffered in our place.
Jesus died and rose for many
that we may know God by grace.
Let us sing for joy and gladness
seeing what our God has done.
Praise the one redeeming glory.
Praise the One who makes us one.

Text: Rusty Edwards b.1955
Music: Joel CH4 348 Sally Ann Morris b.1952



Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we have sinned against you and one another, in thought, word and deed. Of your mercy forgive what we have been, help us to amend what we are, and direct what we shall be; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

First Lesson               1 Kings 19  1-4, 8-15a

Metrical Psalm

Like as the hart for water-brooks
in thirst doth pant and bray;
So pants my longing soul, O God,
that come to thee I may.

My soul for God, the living God,
doth thirst: when shall I near
Unto thy countenance approach,
and in God’s sight appear?

My tears have unto me been meat,
both in the night and day,
While unto me continually,
Where is thy God? they say.

O why art thou cast down, my soul?
why in me so dismay’d?
Trust God, for I shall praise him yet,
his count’nance is mine aid.

Text: Psalm 42  1-3, 5  The Scottish Psalter 1650
Music: Elgin Scottish Psalter 1625

The Gospel    St Luke 8  26-39

The Sermon

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried:
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
The Holy Catholic Church;
The Communion of Saints;
The Forgiveness of sins;
The Resurrection of the body,
And the Life everlasting.

The Intercessions

Gloria in Excelsis sung by the choir

Glory be to God on high, and in earth peace, goodwill towards men. We praise thee, we bless thee, we worship thee, we glorify thee, we give thanks to thee for thy great glory, O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father Almighty.

O Lord, the only-begotten Son Jesu Christ; O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us.  Thou that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Thou that takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer.  Thou that sittest at the right hand of God the Father, have mercy upon us.

For thou only art holy; thou only art the Lord; thou only, O Christ, with the Holy Ghost, art most high in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Spaurmesse K258 W.A.Mozart


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 our thanks and praise



Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God of Hosts,
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Glory be to you,
O Lord Most High.

Blessed is he that comes in the Name of the Lord:
Hosanna in the highest.


The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in 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.

Agnus Dei

Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world,
Have mercy upon us.

Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world,
Have mercy upon us.

Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world,
Grant us your peace.

Holy Communion

During Communion the Choir sings

Listen sweet dove

Listen sweet dove unto my song
And spread thy golden wings in me;
Hatching my tender heart so long
Till it get wing and flie away with thee.

Such glorious gifts thou didst bestow
That the earth did like a heaven appear,
The starres were coming down to know
If they might mend their wages and serve here.

The sunne which once did shine alone,
Hung down his head and wisht for night
When he beheld twelve sunnes for one
Going about the world and giving light.

Lord though we change thou art the same,
The same sweet God of love and light;
Restore this day for thy great name,
Unto his ancient and miraculous right.

Text: George Herbert 1593-1633
Music: Grayston Ives b.1948



Praise the Spirit in creation,
breath of God, life’s origin:
Spirit, moving on the waters,
forming order deep within,
source of breath for all things breathing,
life in whom all lives begin.

Praise the Spirit, close companion
of our inmost thoughts and ways;
who, in showing us God’s wonders,
moves our hearts to love and praise;
and God’s will, to those who listen,
by a still small voice conveys.

Praise the Spirit, who enlightened
priests and prophets with the word;
hidden truth behind the wisdoms
which as yet know not their Lord;
by whose love and power in Jesus
God himself is seen and heard.

Praise the Spirit, sent by Jesus
when ascended to his throne,
who pours out on men and women
power for turning upside down
all the world and every people
as the gospel is made known.

Pray we now, Lord, Holy Spirit,
on our lives descend in might;
let your flame burn bright within us,
fire our hearts and clear our sight,
till, consumed with your compassion,
we too set the world alight.
