Introduction & welcome

Lord, direct our thoughts, teach us to pray, lift up our hearts to worship you in Spirit and in truth, through Jesus Christ. Amen. 

Confession

Jesus says, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is close at hand.’ So let us turn away from our sin and turn to Christ, confessing our sins in penitence and faith. Lord God, we have sinned against you; we have done evil in your sight. We are sorry and repent. Have mercy on us according to your love. Wash away our wrongdoing and cleanse us from our sin. Renew a right spirit within us and restore us to the joy of your salvation;  through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. May God who loved the world so much that he sent his Son to be our saviour, forgive us our sins and make us holy to serve him in the world through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This is the day which the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
