Welcome to Trinity! If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave. Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods. If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

The Second Reading: Ephesians 3:1-12 (N.T. page 193)
We three kings of Orient are, bearing gifts we traverse afar,
Field and fountain, moor and mountain, following yonder star.
Refrain: O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright;
westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light.
Born a king of Bethlehem’s plain, Gold I bring to crown him again,
King for ever, ceasing never, Over us all to reign. Refrain
Celebrant: The Lord be with you
People: And also with you.
Celebrant:The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ,
according to Matthew 2:1-12 (N.T. page 2)
People: Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ…
Celebrant:The Gospel of Christ.
People: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ,
Gradual Hymn (cont’d):
Frankincense to offer have I, incense owns a Deity nigh,
Prayer and praising, all men raising, worship him, God most high. Refrain
Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume, breathes a life of gathering gloom;
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, sealed in the stone-cold tomb. Refrain
Glorious now behold him arise, King, and God and sacrifice,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Earth to the heavens replies. Refrain
We Respond to God’s Word
The Apostles’ Creed page 189
The Prayers of the People
Leader: God’s glory has been veiled in flesh. Our flesh has become a glorious epiphany.
People: Let us present before the Lord of glory our gift of prayer for those who are in need.
Leader: For the Church throughout the world; for John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.
People: For all who walk in the darkness of violence and oppression, and for all who by their life and preaching cast into that darkness the light of God’s peace and justice.
Leader: Let us pray for all who carry on the teaching of prophets and apostles, and for the full communion in life and worship of those who receive God’s word.
People: Let us pray for all who have at their disposal this world’s riches, and for all who call out to them.
Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Let us pray for the rulers of the earth, and for every child that stands in need of their protection.
People: For all who raise their eyes to the heavens looking for healing.
Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence). For all who through death have passed into the full epiphany of God’s glory let us pray to the Lord. O God of stars and journeys, you lead us day by day to the joyful vision of your light.
People: Move us by the power of your word that we too might open our gifts for others and so receive in our hearts the child of Bethlehem. So may you be praised and adored through the same Christ our Lord, in the Holy Spirit, this day of your Epiphany, now and forever. Amen.
