WORSHIP AT ST. LAIKA’S

All are welcome to join me in taking communion.
There are no exceptions.

The order of service is posted beneath the audio file so that you can join in with the service. The words in bold type are the ones we say together.
If you want to physically partake of communion you will require a small piece of bread and a small amount of drink (preferably made from grapes and containing alcohol). You eat the bread after I say “The body of Christ,” and drink the wine after I say “The blood of Christ.” How you view the nature of this part of the service is completely up to you.

We give to ourselves too much
and to others too little.

INTERCESSIONS 
"Jesus Shall Reign Where'er The Sun" - Howie Campbell
THE PEACE
"All for Jesus!" - Choir of The King's School
All for Jesus! All for Jesus!
This our song shall ever be;
for we have no hope, nor Saviour,
if we have not hope in thee.
All for Jesus! Thou wilt give us
strength to serve thee, hour by hour,
none can move us from thy presence,
while we trust thy love and power.
All for Jesus! At thine altar
thou dost give us sweet content;
there, dear Saviour, we receive thee
in the holy sacrament.
All for Jesus! Thou hast loved us.
All for Jesus! Thou hast died.
All for Jesus! Thou art with us.
All for Jesus! Glorified!
All for Jesus! All for Jesus!
This the Church's song shall be;
till, at last, the flock is gathered
one in love and one in thee.
PRAYER OVER THE GIFT
The Lord is here.
God's Spirit is with us.
Lift up your hearts.
We lift them to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give thanks and praise.
Gracious God, you gave us life…
...for ever praising you and saying:
Holy, holy, holy Lord!  God of power and might. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest! 
How wonderful the works of your hands, O Lord…
…Do this as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.
Great is the mystery of faith. 
Christ has died,
Christ is risen,
Christ will come again.
Father, we plead with confidence…
in songs of everlasting praise:
Blessing and honour and glory and power 
be yours for ever and ever. Amen. 
Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has 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.
We break this bread to share in the body of Christ.
Though we are many, we are one body, because we all share in one bread.
Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world,
have mercy on us.
Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world, 

have mercy on us.
Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world,
grant us peace.
This is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
Blessed are those who are called to his supper.
Lord, I am not worthy to receive you,
but only say the word, and I shall be healed.
The body of Christ.
The blood of Christ.
"Power, Lust, And Money" - Bob Neuwirth
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
"Jesus shall reign where'er the sun" - St.Chad's Cathedral
Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His Name.
Blessings abound wherever He reigns;
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains;
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blessed.
Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honors to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen!
THE BLESSING
My sisters and brothers, go in the peace of Christ.
Thanks be to God.
"Can't Buy Me Love" - The Beatles
