Seventh Sunday of Easter 

Sunday after Ascension Day

Sunday 24th May


The Lord be with you

And also with you.

Christ is risen!

He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

O God the King of glory,
you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ
with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven:
we beseech you, leave us not comfortless,
but send your Holy Spirit to strengthen us
and exalt us to the place
where our Saviour Christ is gone before,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Anthem: Worthy is the Lamb, Handel

Prayers written and produced by Kay Plumley 

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.

Blessing and Dismissal
May the Spirit,
who hovered over the waters when the world was created,
breathe into you the life she gives.
May the Spirit,
who overshadowed Blessed Mary when the eternal Son came among
make you joyful in the service of the Lord.
May the Spirit,
who set the Church on fire upon the Day of Pentecost,
bring the world alive with the love of the risen Christ.
And the blessing of God almighty,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
be upon you and remain with you always.
Go in the peace of Christ. Alleluia! Alleulia!
Thanks be to God. Alleluia! Alleluia!
