Gracious Father, you gave up your Son out of love for the world: lead us to ponder the

mysteries of his passion, that we may know eternal peace through the shedding of our Saviour’s blood, Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.



Let your name be glorified:

let your will be done.


In your prayers this week could you pray for our five overseas partner Dioceses especially today the Diocese of Western Tanganyika and for Churches Together, St. Joseph’s, Nympsfield.


Post Communion

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do also for you: give us the will to be the servant of others as you were the servant of all,
and gave up your life and died for us, but are alive and reign, now and for ever.  Amen.

First Reading – Jeremiah 31 v31-34


31The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.  32It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the Lord.  33But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  34No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, “Know the Lord,” for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.




On a Hill Far Away


On a hill far away

stood an old rugged cross,

the emblem of suff-ring and shame;

and I loved that old cross

where the dearest and best

for a world of lost sinners was slain.


So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,

till my trophies at last I lay down;

I will cling to the old rugged cross

and exchange it some day for a crown.


O that old rugged cross,

so despised by the world,

has a wondrous attraction for me:

for the dear Lamb of God

left his glory above

to bear it to dark Calvary.


In the old rugged cross,

stained with blood so divine,

a wondrous beauty I see.

For t’was on that old cross

Jesus suffered and died

to pardon and sanctify me.


To the old rugged cross

I will ever be true,

its shame and reproach gladly bear.

Then he’ll call me some day

to my home far away;

there his glory for ever I’ll share.

Gospel Reading – John 12 v 20-33


20Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks.  21They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” 22Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.  23Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.  24Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.  25Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  26Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also.  Whoever serves me, the Father will honor.  27“Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say—‘Father, save me from this hour’?  No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour.  28Father, glorify your name.” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.”  29The crowd standing there heard it and said that it was thunder.  Others said, “An angel has spoken to him.”  30Jesus answered, “This voice has come for your sake, not for mine.  31Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out.  32And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”  33He said this to indicate the kind of death he was to die.




Faithful Vigil Ended


Faithful vigil ended,

watching, waiting cease;

Master, grant thy servant

his discharge in peace.


All the Spirit promised,

all the Father willed,

now these eyes behold it

perfectly fulfilled.


This thy great deliv’rance

sets thy people free;

Christ, their light, uplifted

all the nations see.


Christ, thy people’s glory!

watching, doubting, cease;

grant to us thy servants

our discharge in peace.

Christ Triumphant Ever Reigning

Christ triumphant, ever reigning,

Saviour, Master, King.

Lord of heav’n, our lives sustaining,

hear us as we sing:


Yours the glory and the crown,

the high renown, th’eternal name.


Word incarnate, truth revealing,

Son of Man on earth!

Pow’r and majesty concealing

by your humble birth:


Suff’ring servant, scorned, ill-treated,

victim crucified!

Death is through the cross defeated,

sinners justified:


Priestly King, enthroned for ever

high in heav’n above!

Sin and death and hell shall never

stifle hymns of love:


So, our hearts and voices raising

through the ages long,

ceaselessly upon you gazing,

this shall be our song:
