Creed:

We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

All   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,

All   God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one Being with the Father.

All   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.

All   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;

All   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,

All   the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

All   With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified.

 

He has spoken through the prophets.

All   We believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church.

 

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

All   We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Prayers:

 

People are encouraged to listen and reflect on the word and its interpretation.

 

They are encouraged to think about how it might impact on life in joy and in times when we need help.

 

The prayer leader will lead us in prayer, and then give a time of quiet.

 

Prayers are in private or shared with the rest of the congregation.

 

The Prayer which Jesus taught us:

Our Father

Who art in heaven

Hallowed by 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 them that trespass against us

And lead us from temptation

But deliver us from evil

For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory

For ever and ever. Amen.
