Anthem: O Sing Joyfully by Adrian Batten

O sing joyfully unto God our strength; make a cheerful noise unto the God of Jacob. Take the song, bring hither the tabret, the merry harp with the lute. Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, even in the time appointed, and upon our solemn feast-day. For this was made a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.

Prayer after Communion        

Gracious God, lover of all,

by this sacrament

you make us one family in Christ your Son,

one in the sharing of his body and blood,

one in the communion of his Spirit.

Help us to grow in love for one another

and come to the full maturity of the Body of Christ.

We ask this in his name. Amen.
