ACCESSION DAY 2012
THE YEAR OF THE
QUEEN'S DIAMOND JUBILEE
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). How you view the nature of this part of the service is completely up to you.

Great and amazing are your deeds, Lord God the Almighty!
Just and true are your ways, King of the nations!
Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke.
Glory to you, O Lord.
This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.
"All People That On Earth Do Dwell" - Norwich Cathedral Choir
All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
Him serve with fear, His praise forth tell;
Come ye before Him and rejoice.
The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;
Without our aid He did us make;
We are His folk, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.
O enter then His gates with praise;
Approach with joy His courts unto;
Praise, laud, and bless His Name always,
For it is seemly so to do.
For why? the Lord our God is good;
His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.
To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
The God Whom Heaven and earth adore,
From men and from the angel host
Be praise and glory evermore.
PRAYER OVER THE GIFTS
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.
You are worthy of our thanks and praise…
… evermore praising you and singing:
"Sanctus and Benedictus" from "Mass in G Minor"
by Vaughan Williams - Elora Festival Singers
Lord God, you are the most holy one…
… all honour and glory be yours, almighty Father, 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.
"Agnes Dei" from "Mass in G Minor" by Vaughan Willaims
- Elora Festival Singers
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. Amen.
The blood of Christ. Amen.
"Nimrod" from "Variations On An Original Theme" by Edward Elgar
- Halle Orchestra
