all the days of my life;

to behold the beauty of the Lord

and to seek Him in His temple.

Call:                                        Do you seek Him with all your heart?

Call:                                        Do you seek Him with all your soul?

Call:                                        Do you seek Him with all your strength?

Response:                           Amen. Christ, have mercy.


We now say together the Declaration of Faith:

To whom shall we go?

You have the words of eternal life,

and we have believed and have come to know

that You are the Holy One of God.


Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ,

King of endless glory.



And the Collect for today.

O God the King of glory,

you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ

with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven:

we beseech you, leave us not comfortless,

but send your Holy Spirit to strengthen us

and exalt us to the place where our Saviour Christ is gone before,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.




Let’s all sing our first hymn together now, Alleluia sing to Jesus.

Sung by St Michaels Singers


Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!
His the sceptre, his the throne;
Alleluia! His the triumph,
His the victory alone.
Hark! The songs of peaceful Zion
Thunder like a mighty flood.
Jesus, out of every nation,
Has redeemed us by his blood.


Alleluia! Not as orphans
Are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! He is near us;
Faith believes nor questions how.
Though the cloud from sight received him
When the forty days were o'er,
Shall our hearts forget his promise,
"I am with you evermore"?

Alleluia! Bread of Angels,
Thou on earth our food, our stay;
Alleluia! Here the sinful
flee to thee from day to day
Intercessor, friend of sinners,
Earth's Redeemer, plead for me,
Where the songs of all the sinless
Sweep across the crystal sea.


Alleluia! King eternal,
You the Lord of lords we own:
Alleluia! born of Mary,
Earth your footstool, heaven thy throne:
Thou within the veil, have entered,
Robed in flesh, our great High Priest:
thou on earth both priest and victim,
In the Eucharistic feast!

Songwriters: William Chatterton Dix / Rowland Pritchard

THE PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION                          Led by Ursula Bailey


And now, as our Saviour Christ has taught us, we are bold to say:

 Our Father, which art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done,

in 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 not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the Kingdom

the Power and the Glory,

For ever and ever.



THIRD HYMN             Abide with Me  Performed by Kevin Mayhew singers


Abide with me, fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens Lord, with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me


Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day
Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away
Change and decay in all around I see
O Thou who changest not, abide with me


I need thy presence every passing hour;

What but thy grace can foil the tempters pow’r

Who like thyself my guide and stay can be?

Through cloud and sunshine Lord abide with me.


I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me


Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee
In life, in death, o Lord, abide with me
Abide with me, abide with me

Songwriters: Henry Francis Lyte / Will Henry Monk


And now for our closing prayer.


Eternal God, giver of love and power,

your Son Jesus Christ has sent us into all the world

to preach the gospel of his kingdom:

confirm us in this mission,

and help us to live the good news we proclaim;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.



Let us now all go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

+ In the name of Christ. Amen.


The service concludes with the music of Hildegard von Bingen sung by The Voices of Ascension, conducted by Ennis Keene
