Act of Worship for Trinity Sunday

7 Jun 2020, 1 a.m.

Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.

Hymn: O Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness...

2 Corinthians 13:11-13

As sisters and brothers in God’s family, we come to ask our Father for forgiveness:

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.

May the God of love bring us back to himself, forgive us our sins, and assure us of his eternal love in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for the day: Holy God, faithful and unchanging: enlarge our minds with the knowledge of your truth, and draw us more deeply into the mystery of your love, that we may truly worship you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Matthew 28:16-20

Please see the message from the vicar.

One of the symbols used for the Trinity is a triangle in a circle, to represent the one God we worship as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Let us include the movement for equality as we join in prayer asking for God’s empowering love to impact the Church, the world, our neighbours, families and friends, and all people who are sick or suffering. We pray for the departed, including Rosina Farrow, and remembering George Floyd, and we ask that all who mourn will be comforted.

Lord of the Church, hear our prayer, and make us one in heart and mind to serve you wth joy forever. Amen.

Let us pray for the coming of God’s kingdom in the prayer that Jesus taught us:

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.

Hymn: Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty! ...

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all evermore.

Jesus said, ‘Receive the Spirit: as the Father sent me, so I send you.’

Let us go in peace to love and serve the Lord, in the name of Christ. Amen.
