Welcome and Opening Responses 

Leader: Come to us this night, O God,

 

All: Come to us with light. 

(Here a candle may be lit and placed centrally) 

A candle is lit as a symbol of holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, grace, hope and God’s revelation.


Leader: Speak to us this night, O God,

All: Speak to us your truth. 

(Here a Bible may be placed centrally)
We read from the Bible, the word of God, which teaches us about Christian faith, our sin and God’s plan of salvation through Jesus Christ.

                                                                                                 Leader:  Dwell with us this night, O God,

 

All: Dwell with us in love.

 

(Here a cross may be placed centrally) 

The cross is a symbol of Christ himself and the Christian faith, through Christ’s passion and death we are redeemed.

Opening Prayer  - We say together

Thanks be to thee, my Lord Jesus Christ,

For all the benefits thou hast won for me,

For all the pains and insults thou hast borne for me, 

O most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,

May I know thee more clearly,

Love thee more dearly,

And follow thee more nearly,

Day by day.

The Word of God - Reading 

Leader: O God, as these words are read, 

All: In our hearts may we feel your presence. 

At the end we say:

Thanks be to God.

Affirmation of Faith 

 We believe in God, the Creator!
Maker of everything,
Author of the Universe,
And Mystery behind every matter.


We believe in Jesus Christ!
God from God, Light from Light, true God and true human,
One with the Creator.
He is the Word made flesh and the Saviour of all creation!


We believe in the Holy Spirit!
Breath of God moving among us,
One with the Creator and one with Christ,
He is our Guide and the Mentor of all creation!ff

Prayers of Concern 

 Intercessions will be concluded by the prayer below.

My Lord and my God,

Take from me all that keeps me from you.

My Lord and my God,

Give to me all that brings me nearer to you.

My Lord and my God,

Take me away from myself and give me completely to you.

At the end of the intercessions there will be a short time for you to light a candle in prayer for someone you know. This can be done in silence or by freely speaking the name.

 

Meditation

Music - for meditation 

We pause here for 5 minutes meditation. If you wish to meditate for longer then press your pause button and resume for the Blessing when you are ready.

Closing Prayer

May the Christ who walked on wounded feet, 

walk with us on the road.

May the Christ who serves with wounded hands,

Stretch out our hands to serve.

May the Christ who loves with a wounded heart,

Open our hearts to love.

The peace of all peace
be ours this night.
+ in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
