We meet to celebrate the coming of Christ into the world.
the word was made flesh and dwelt among us
and we beheld his glory.

Confession

The grace of God has dawned upon the world
through our Saviour Jesus Christ.
So come, let us return to the Lord
and confess our sins.

Almighty God, our heavenly Father,
we have sinned against you and against our neighbour
in thought and word and deed, 
through negligence, through weakness, 
through our own deliberate fault. 
We are truly sorry and repent of all our sins. 
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, who died for us,
forgive us all that is past 
and grant that we may serve you in newness of life 
to the glory of your name. Amen.

The almighty and merciful Lord
grant you pardon and forgiveness from all your sins,
time for amendment of life,
and the grace and strength of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Collect

God of all mercy,
your Son proclaimed good news to the poor,
release to the captives,
and freedom to the oppressed:
anoint us with your Holy Spirit
and set all your people free
to praise you in Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

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.
Amen.

Blessing

and gladden our hearts with the good news of his kingdom;
and the blessing of God almighty,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
be among us and remain with us always.
Amen.

Let us bless the Lord. 
Thanks be to God. Amen.
