Holy God, faithful and unchanging: enlarge our minds with the knowledge of your truth, and draw us more deeply into the mystery of your love, that we may truly worship you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.



May your will be done:

on earth as it is in heaven.


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. Bartholomew’s, Nympsfield.


Post Communion

Almighty and eternal God, you have revealed yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and live and reign in the perfect unity of love: hold us firm in this faith, that we may know you in all your ways and evermore rejoice in your eternal glory, who are three Persons yet one God, now and for ever.  Amen


First Reading – Isaiah 6 v1-9

1In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lofty; and the hem of his robe filled the temple.  2Seraphs were in attendance above him; each had six wings: with two they covered their faces, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew.  3And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.”  4The pivots on the thresholds shook at the voices of those who called, and the house filled with smoke.  5And I said: “Woe is me!  I am lost, for I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; yet my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”  6Then one of the seraphs flew to me, holding a live coal that had been taken from the altar with a pair of tongs.  7The seraph touched my mouth with it and said: “Now that this has touched your lips, your guilt has departed and your sin is blotted out.” 8Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”  And I said, “Here am I; send me!”  9And he said, “Go and say to this people: ‘Keep listening, but do not comprehend; keep looking, but do not understand.’


Holy, Holy, Holy


Holy, holy holy!

Lord God almighty!

Early in the morning

our song shall rise to thee;

holy, holy, holy!

Merciful and mighty!

God in three persons,

blessed Trinity!


Holy, holy, holy!

Though the darkness hide thee,

though the sinful mortal eye

thy glory may not see,

only thou art holy,

there is none beside thee,

perfect in pow’r,

in love, and purity.


Holy, holy, holy!

Lord God almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name,

in earth and sky and sea;

holy, holy, holy!

Merciful and mighty!

God in three persons,

blessed Trinity.

Gospel Reading – John 3 v1-17


1Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews.  2He came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God.”  3Jesus answered him, “Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.”  4Nicodemus said to him, “How can anyone be born after having grown old?  Can one enter a second time into the mother’s womb and be born?”  5Jesus answered, “Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit.  What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.  7Do not be astonished that I said to you, ‘You must be born from above.’  8The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes.  So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”  9Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?”  10Jesus answered him, “Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand these things?  11“Very truly, I tell you, we speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen; yet you do not receive our testimony.  12If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?  13No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man.  14And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.  16“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.  17“Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him
