Collects (C:\Users\Clive\Documents\Christian\Liturgy\Calendar\collects\@CW_collects.doc)



The God of peace,
who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus,
that great shepherd of the sheep,
through the blood of the eternal covenant,
make you perfect in every good work to do his will,
working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight;
and the blessing …


Invitation to Confession

Christ died to sin once for all, and now he lives to God.

Let us renew our resolve to have done with all that is evil

and confess our sins in penitence and faith.



May the God of love and power

forgive you and free you from your sins,

heal and strengthen you by his Spirit

and raise you to new life in Christ our Lord Amen

The Peace

Peace - Incarnation

Christ came and proclaimed the gospel, 
peace to those who are far off, and peace to those who are near.

The risen Christ came and stood among his disciples             and said,


 ‘Peace be with you.’
Then were they glad when they saw the Lord. Alleluia.

John 20.19,20


Jesus says.
‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
If you love me, rejoice because I am going to the Father’. Alleluia.

[CW p318]

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you.

These words may be added:  Let us offer one another a sign of peace.
Prayers of Intercession

Almighty God, our heavenly Father,

you have exalted your Son Christ Jesus to your right hand,

and made him the head over all things for his body the Church:

hear us as we pray for the Church throughout the world ...

Father make us and all your people receptive to the gifts you pour upon us,

that we may use them to your glory,

and the building up of the body of Christ.

Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer.


Lord God Almighty, the Ancient of Days,

you have given your Son all authority in heaven and on earth:

hear us as we pray for the world he came to redeem ...

Grant that we may know even in this time the things that make for peace,

and may strive for the reconciliation of all people

in your kingdom of justice and love.

Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer.


Father of all, whose Son has promised to be with us always,

to the end of the age:

hear us as we pray for those among whom we live and work ...

Grant that we may be so aware of Jesus’ presence with us,

that we may bring a sense of his presence to those we meet.

Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer.


O God our Redeemer, whose Son ever lives to make intercession for us:

hear us as we pray for those in any kind of need ...

May Jesus Christ, who has borne our infirmities strengthen and heal those for whom we have prayed,

that they may find His grace, to help them in their time of need,

and rejoice in the salvation He brings.

Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer.


Heavenly Father, whose Son has borne our humanity into the heavenly realms,

and gone before us to prepare a place for us:

hear us as we remember before you those whose earthly sojourn is over,

and whose life is now hidden in him with you ...

Make us joyful and expectant, that at the coming again of our Saviour with all his own

we too may go forth to meet him, and share in his eternal joy.

Merciful Father,

accept these prayers

for the sake of your Son,

our Saviour Jesus Christ.



Christ is our peace.
He has reconciled us to God
in one body by the cross.
We meet in his name and share his peace.

cf Ephesians 2.15,16

Church and mission


We are the body of Christ.
In the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.
Let us then pursue all that makes for peace
and builds up our common life.

cf 1 Corinthians 12.13; Romans 14.19
