3 Welcome The Collect Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hidden: cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ our Lord. Confession and Absolution As we prepare to share in this Eucharist, let us confess our sins in penitence and faith. God our Father, we confess to you and to our fellow members in the Body of Christ that we have sinned in thought, word and deed, and in what we have failed to do. We are truly sorry. Forgive us our sins, and deliver us from the power of evil, for the sake of your Son who died for us, Jesus Christ, our Lord. God, who is both power and love, forgive us and free us from our sins, heal and strengthen us by his Spirit, and raise us to new life in Christ our Lord. ~ 3 ~

4 All Almighty God, who dost choose thine elect out of every nation, and dost show forth thy glory in their lives: Grant, we pray thee, that following the example of thy servant, Saint Ninian, we may be fruitful in good works to the praise of thy holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen Old Testament Reading Isaiah 40: read by Joanna Wallace New Testament Reading 2 Corinthians 3: read by Rev Canon John Walker Quiet (60 seconds) Gradual Hymn Speak, O Lord, as we come to You to receive the food of your holy word. Take Your truth, plant it deep in us; shape and fashion us in Your likeness, that the light of Christ might be seen today in our acts of love and our deeds of faith. Speak, O Lord, and fulfil in us all Your purposes, for Your glory. Teach us, Lord, full obedience, holy reverence, true humility. Test our thoughts and our attitudes in the radiance of Your purity. Cause our faith to rise, cause our eyes to see, your majestic love and authority. Words of power that can never fail; let their truth prevail over unbelief. ~ 4 ~

5 Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds; help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us. Truths unchanged from the dawn of time, that will echo down through eternity. And by grace we'll stand on Your promises; and by faith we'll walk as You walk with us. Speak, O Lord, 'til your church is built and the earth is filled with Your glory. Stuart Townend & Keith Getty Copyright 2005 Thankyou Music Gospel Reading Luke 13: Read by Margaret Hodder When it is announced: Glory to Christ our Saviour. At end the reader says: Give thanks to the Lord for his glorious Gospel. All respond: Praise to Christ our Lord. Address Rt Reverend Dr Robert Gillies Hymn Abba Father, let me be yours and Yours alone. May my will forever be ever more Your own. Never let my heart grow cold, never let me go. Abba Father, let me be yours and Yours alone. ~ 5 ~

6 THE PRESENTATION Two members of the vestry of St Ninian s present Joan to the with these words: Right Reverend Father in God, we present to you the Reverend Joan Lyon who has been chosen to be Priest-in-Charge of the congregation of St Ninian s Episcopal Church, Aberdeen. We believe her to be worthy to serve God and God s people in this Office. Let us kneel and offer our prayers to God for all His people, for this congregation, and for Joan now called to be its Priest-in-Charge. Please kneel or sit The Lord be with you. And also with you. Let us pray. Everliving God, strengthen and sustain Joan that with patience and understanding, she may love and care for your people; and grant that together they may follow Jesus Christ, offering to you their gifts and talents; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. ~ 6 ~

7 The calls for the Deed of Licence to be read. Joan stands before the. Joan, at your ordination you solemnly promised to minister the doctrine, sacraments and discipline of Christ; to be faithful in the study of the scriptures and in prayer; in your own life to seek to follow the example of Christ and to maintain and advance the peace and unity of God s people. Do you now re-affirm these promises? Joan I do, with God s help. Joan All Joan, do you, in the presence of this congregation commit yourself to this new trust and responsibility? I do, with God s help. Will you who witness this new beginning support and uphold Joan in this ministry? We will, with God s help. ~ 7 ~

8 Representatives from the congregation present Joan with symbols of the ministry in which they share. A Cross is presented Joan, receive this Cross as a sign of the witness and mission of our service in our community. The presents a cruet of water Joan, receive this water and be with me as one who baptises. Keys are presented Joan, receive this key, and let the doors of the church be open to all people. A Bible and a Prayer Book are presented Joan, accept this Bible and this Prayer Book and be among us as one who proclaims the Word and leads in prayer. A white stole is presented Joan, receive this stole and be among us as pastor and priest. Oil is presented Joan, be among us as a healer and reconciler. ~ 8 ~

9 Bread and Wine are presented Joan, take this bread and wine, and be among us to break the Bread and bless the Cup. The responds Joan, let all these be signs of the ministry which is mine and yours in St Ninian s Church. Joan kneels in front of the. Joan, accept with joy the Service of God as Priest-in-Charge of the congregation of St Ninian. Preach the Living Word of God, administer the Sacraments of eternal life, guard and strengthen the flock now committed to your Charge, and share in ministry with this community: and may the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit be upon you and upon all your work done in His Name. INSTING OF THE PRIEST-IN-CHARGE The leads Joan to her stall. Joan, the Lord preserve your going out and coming in, from this time forth and for evermore. Intercessions led by Joan ~ 9 ~

10 The Peace We meet in Christ's name. Let us share his peace. Let us present our offerings to the Lord. Offertory Hymn Christians, lift your hearts and voices, let your praises be outpoured; come with joy and exultation to the table of the Lord; come believing, come expectant, in obedience to his word. See, presiding at his table, Jesus Christ our great high priest; Where he summons all his people, none is greatest, none is least. Graciously he bids them welcome to the eucharistic feast. Lord, we offer in thanksgiving life and work for you to bless; yet unworthy is the offering, marred by pride and carelessness; so, Lord, pardon our transgressions, plant in us true holiness. On the evening of his passion Jesus gave the wine and bread, so that all who love and serve him shall for evermore be fed. Taste and see the Lord is gracious feed upon the living bread. John Edward Bowers ~ 10 ~

11 Liturgy of The Sacrament Yours, Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the splendour, and the majesty; for everything in heaven and on earth is yours. All things come from you, and of your own we give you. The Lord be with you. And also with you. Lift up your hearts. We lift them to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give him thanks and praise. Worship and praise belong to you, maker of light and darkness. Your wisdom draws beauty from chaos, brings a harvest out of sorrow and leads exiles home. In Christ your Son, enemies are reconciled, debts forgiven and strangers made welcome. Your Spirit frees us to live as sons and daughters in our Father's house. We, who by Christ's power follow the way of the Cross, sharing the joy of his obedience, now offer you our praise, with angels and archangels and the whole company of heaven, singing the hymn of your unending glory: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of power and might. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest. ~ 11 ~

12 Glory and thanksgiving be to you, most loving Father, for Christ in whom the world is reconciled. Lifted on the cross, his suffering and forgiveness spanned the gulf our sins had made. Through that dark struggle, death was swallowed up in victory, that life and light might reign. Before he was given up to suffering and death, recalling the night of Israel s release, the night in which the sons of Egypt died, your Chosen One, himself the Firstborn, freely offered his life. At supper with his disciples he took bread and offered you thanks. He broke the bread, and gave it to them saying: Take, eat, this is my Body: it is broken for you. After supper, he took the cup, he offered you thanks and gave it to them saying: Drink this, all of you. This is my Blood of the new covenant; it is poured out for you, and for all, that sins may be forgiven. Do this in remembrance of me. We now obey your Son's command. We recall his blessed passion and death, his glorious resurrection and ascension; and we look for the coming of his Kingdom. Made one with him, we offer you these gifts and with them ourselves, a single, holy living sacrifice. Hear us, most merciful Father, and send your Holy Spirit upon us and upon this bread and this wine, that, overshadowed by his life giving power, they may be the Body and Blood of your Son, and we may be kindled with the fire of your love and renewed for the service of your Kingdom. Help us, who are baptised into the fellowship of Christ's Body to live and work to your praise and glory; may we grow together in unity and love until at last, in your new creation, we enter into our heritage in the company of the Virgin Mary, St Ninian, the apostles and prophets, and of all our brothers and sisters living and departed. ~ 12 ~

13 Through Jesus Christ our Lord, with whom, and in whom, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all honour and glory be to you, Lord of all ages, world without end. The living bread is broken for the life of the world. Lord, unite us in this sign. As our Saviour has taught us, so we pray: 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. Do not bring us to the time of trial but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and for ever. ~ 13 ~

14 Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world: have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world: have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world: grant us peace. Communion Hymns Eat this bread Eat this bread, drink this cup, come to him and never be hungry. Eat this bread, drink this cup, trust in him and you will not thirst. Jesus Christ, bread of life, those who come to you will not hunger. Jesus Christ, risen Lord, those who trust in you will not thirst. Jacques Berthier Thuma mina Thuma mina, thuma mina Thuma mina, Somandla. Send me, Jesus, send me, Jesus Send me, Jesus, send me, Lord Lead me, Lord... Fill me, Lord... Thuma mina... Anders Nyberg ~ 14 ~

15 God be in my head God be in my head, and in my understanding; God be in mine eyes, and in my looking; God be in my mouth, and in my speaking; God be in my heart, and in my thinking; God be at mine end, and at my departing... Mayenziwe Mayenziwe ntando yakho Your will be done on earth, O Lord. South African traditional Thanksgiving And Sending Out Blessing Give thanks to the Lord, for he is gracious. And his mercy endures for ever. Father, your steadfast purpose is the completion of all things in your Son. May we who have received the pledges of the kingdom, live by faith, walk in hope and be renewed in love, until the world reflects your glory and you are all in all; through Jesus Christ our Lord. May God the Father, who does not despise the broken spirit, give you a contrite heart. Amen May Christ, who bore our sins in His body on the tree, heal you by His wounds. Amen May the Holy Spirit, who leads us into all truth, speak to you words of pardon and peace. Amen ~ 15 ~

16 Final Hymn And the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit be among you and remain with you now and always. Amen Forth in thy Name, O Lord, I go, my daily labour to pursue; thee, only thee, resolved to know in all I think or speak or do. The task thy wisdom hath assigned, O let me cheerfully fulfill; in all my works thy presence find, and prove thy good and perfect will. Thee may I set at my right hand, whose eyes mine inmost substance see, and labour on at thy command, and offer all my works to thee. Give me to bear thy easy yoke, and every moment watch and pray, and still to things eternal look, and hasten to thy glorious day. For thee delightfully employ whate'er thy bounteous grace hath given; and run my course with even joy, and closely walk with thee to heav'n. Charles Wesley Dismissal Joan Go in peace to love and serve the Lord. In the name of Christ. Amen In case of emergency please leave the church via the fire exits at the front of the church via the sacristy or through the side and main front doors at the back of the church ~ 16 ~
