                 For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,

                 who died for us,

                 forgive us all that is past;

                 and grant that we may serve you

                 in newness of life

                 to the glory of your name.

The Creed

All            We believe in one God,

                 the Father, the Almighty,

                 maker of heaven and earth,

                 of all that is,

                 seen and unseen.

                 We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

                 the only Son of God,

                 eternally  begotten of the Father,

                 God from God, Light from Light,

                 true God from true God,

                 begotten, not made,

                 of one Being with the Father;

                 through him all things were made.

                 For us and for our salvation

                 he came down from heaven,

                 was incarnate from the Holy Spirit

                 and the Virgin Mary

                 and was made man.

                 For our sake he was crucified

                 under Pontius Pilate;

                 he suffered death and was buried.

                 On the third day he rose again

                 in accordance with the Scriptures;

                 he ascended into heaven

                 and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

                 He will come again in glory to judge the living

                 and the dead,

                 and his kingdom will have no end.

                 We believe in the Holy Spirit,

                 the Lord, the giver of life,

                 who proceeds from the Father and the Son,

                 who with the Father and the Son

                 is worshipped and glorified,

                 who has spoken through the prophets. 

                 We believe in one holy catholic

                 and apostolic Church.

                 We acknowledge one baptism

                 for the forgiveness of sins.

                 We look for the resurrection of the dead,

                 and the life of the world to come.



Prayers of Intercession

The president introduces the prayers. Please kneel or sit. 

The following responses may be used

Lord, in your mercy

All            hear our prayer.     


And at the end

Merciful Father,

All            accept these prayers

for the sake of your Son,

                 our Saviour Jesus Christ.    



The Liturgy of the Sacrament


The Peace

Please stand.  The president introduces the Peace with these or other suitable words

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,

since as members of one body you are called to peace.

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

All            and also with you.


Preparation of the Table

Taking of the Bread and Wine

Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation:

through your goodness we have this bread

to set before you,

which earth has given and human hands have made.  It will become for us the bread of life.

All            Blessed be God forever.

Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation:

through your goodness we have this wine

to set before you,

fruit of the vine and work of human hands.

It will become for us the cup of salvation.

All            Blessed be God forever.


Eucharistic Prayer

The Lord be with you.

All       and also with you.              

Lift up your hearts.

All       We lift them to the Lord.

            Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All       It is right to give thanks and praise.

            Father, we give you thanks and praise

through your beloved Son Jesus Christ,

your living Word,

through whom you have created all things;

who was sent by you in your great goodness

to be our Saviour.

By the power of the Holy Spirit he took flesh;

as your Son, born of the blessed Virgin,

he lived on earth and went about among us;

he opened wide his arms for us on the cross;

he put an end to death by dying for us;

and revealed the resurrection by rising to new life;

so he fulfilled your will

and won for you a holy people.

Therefore with angels and archangels,

and with all the company of heaven,

we proclaim your great and glorious name,

for ever praising you and saying/singing:

All       Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes

     in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

Lord, you are holy indeed, the source of all holiness;

grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit,

and according to your holy will,

these gifts of bread and wine

may be to us the body and blood

of our Lord Jesus Christ;

who, in the same night that he was betrayed,

took bread and gave you thanks;

he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying:

Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;


do this in remembrance of me.

In the same way, after supper

he took the cup and gave you thanks;

he gave it to them, saying:

Drink this, all of you;

this is my blood of the new covenant,

which is shed for you and for many

for the forgiveness of sins.

Do this, as often as you drink it,

in remembrance of me.

Great is the mystery of faith:

All       Christ has died:                   

     Christ is risen:                     

     Christ will come again.

And so, Father, calling to mind his death on the cross,

his perfect sacrifice made once

for the sins of the whole world;

rejoicing in his mighty resurrection

and glorious ascension,

and looking for his coming in glory,

we celebrate this memorial of our redemption.

As we offer you this our sacrifice of praise

and thanksgiving,

we bring before you this bread and this cup

and we thank you for counting us worthy

to stand in your presence and serve you.

Send the Holy Spirit on your people

and gather into one in your kingdom

all who share this one bread and one cup,

so that we, in the company of [N and] all the saints,

may praise and glorify you for ever,

through Jesus Christ our Lord;

by whom, and with whom, and in whom,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

all honour and glory be yours, almighty Father,

for ever and ever.

All       Amen.

Silence may be kept.


 The Lord’s Prayer

The president introduces the Lord’s Prayer.

Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us

All       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.    



Breaking of the Bread

The president breaks the consecrated bread and says.

We break this bread for those who love God,
for those who follow the path of the Buddha

and worship the God of the Hindus;
for our sisters and brothers in Islam,

and for the Jewish people from whom we come.
We pray that one day we may be as one.

We break this bread for the great green earth,
we call to mind the forests, fields and flowers which we are destroying,
that one day, with the original blessing, God’s creation will be restored.

We break this bread for those who have no bread,
the starving, the homeless and the refugees,
that one day this planet may be a home for everyone.

We break this bread for the broken parts of ourselves,
the wounded child in all of us, for our broken relationships,
that one day we may glimpse the wholeness that is of Christ.

A prayer said at the Breaking of Bread during the Eucharist.

Composed by the Revd Donald Reeves, Rector of St James, Piccadilly, 1980-1998,

& used for the first time following the events of September 11 2001.


 The Agnus Dei may be said   as the bread is broken.

All            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.


Giving of Communion

The president raises the consecrated bread and wine and says either

God’s holy gifts

for God’s holy people.

All            Jesus Christ is holy,

                 Jesus Christ is Lord,

                 to the glory of God the Father.


Prayer after Communion

The Post Communion Prayer is said, then all may say


All            Almighty God,

we thank you for feeding us

                 with the body and blood

                 of your Son Jesus Christ.

                 Through him we offer you our souls

                 and bodies

                 to be a living sacrifice.

                 Send us out 

                 in the power of your Spirit

                 to live and work

                 to your praise and glory.    


Notices may be given

God the Holy Trinity

make you strong in faith and love,

defend you on every side,

and guide you in truth and peace;

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

be among you and remain with you always.

All            Amen.
