PreludeFrench Suite 6, Allemand in E    J.S. Bach



Hymn:  349   All People that on Earth Do Dwell     soloist:  Jamie Coole Stevenson
All people that on earth do dwell, sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
Him serve with mirth; his praise forth tell. Come ye before him and rejoice.

For why, the Lord our God is good; his mercy is forever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood, and shall from age to age endure. 

Lord God our redeemer, who heard the cry of your people and sent your servant Moses to lead them out of slavery, free us from the tyranny of sin and death, and by the leading of your Spirit bring us to our promised land; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.   Amen.

Reading:   Deuteronomy 34:1-12   read by Weldon Meadus Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho, and the Lord showed him the whole land: Gilead as far as Dan, all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Western Sea, the Negeb, and the Plain that is, the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees as far as Zoar. The Lord said to him, "This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, 'I will give it to your descendants'; I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there." Then Moses, the servant of the Lord, died there in the land of Moab, at the Lord's command. He was buried in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Bethpeor, but no one knows his burial place to this day. Moses was one hundred twenty years old when he died; his sight was unimpaired and his vigour had not abated. The Israelites wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days; then the period of mourning for Moses was ended. Joshua son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, because Moses had laid his hands on him; and the Israelites obeyed him, doing as the Lord had commanded Moses. Never since has there arisen a prophet in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face. He was unequalled for all the signs and wonders that the Lord sent him to perform in the land of Egypt, against Pharaoh and all his servants and his entire land, and for all the mighty deeds and all the terrifying displays of power that Moses performed in the sight of all Israel.             
Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.  Thanks be to God.

 Hymn:  528   O God Our Help in Ages Past    soloist:  Jamie Coole Stevenson
O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come,
our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home:

Time, like an ever-rolling stream, bears all our years away;
They fly, forgotten, as a dream dies at the opening day.

Gospel:  Matthew 22:34-46

A reading from the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew.

When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" He said to him, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself.' On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them this question: "What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?" They said to him, "The son of David." He said to them, "How is it then that David by the Spirit calls him Lord, saying, 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet"'? If David thus calls him Lord, how can he be his son?" No one was able to give him an answer, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.

Sermon   The Reverend Kevin Flynn

Prayers of the People

In peace let us pray to the Lord saying Lord, have mercy.

For peace from on high and for our salvation,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For the peace of the whole world, for the welfare of the holy Church of God, and for the unity of all,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For Elizabeth our Queen, for the leaders of the nations, and for all in authority,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For Shane our bishop, and for all the clergy and people,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For good weather, and for abundant harvests for all to share,
let us pray to the Lord.   Lord, have mercy.

For all who are in need, the poor, the homeless, for the sick, for refugees and prisoners and victims of violence and oppression, for all who have asked for our prayers.
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy

For the absolution and remission of our sins and offences,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For all who have died in the peace of Christ and for those whose faith is known to God alone,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

Remembering the ever-blessed Virgin Mary, St. Aidan, St. Bartholomew and all the saints, strengthened by their prayers and example we may give glory to Christ in our day.
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

Accept O God, the fervent prayers of your people;  for you are gracious, O lover of souls, and to you we give glory, source of all being, eternal word and Holy Spirit, now and for ever.  Amen

The Lord’s Prayer

Hymn:  486    Love Divine, All Loves Excelling      soloist:  Jamie Coole Stevenson
Love divine, all loves excelling, joy of heav’n to earth come down;
fix in us thy humble dwelling; all thy faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, thou art all compassion, pure unbounded love thou art;
visit us with thy salvation, enter ev’ry trembling heart.

Finish, then, thy new creation; pure and spotless let us be:
let us see thy great salvation perfectly restored in thee;
changed from glory into glory, ‘til in heav’n we take our place,
‘til we cast our crowns before thee, lost in wonder, love and praise.




Postlude:  Gigue from Suite 3 in Eb    Johann Krebs

Offertory:  Blessed be thou, Lord God of Israel for ever and ever.  All that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine. All things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
