One of the photos from our congregation last Sunday

The Scottish Episcopal Church is joining groups across Scotland in asking Christians to light a candle in their window and join in prayer at 7pm on Sunday evenings.

Last Sunday, thousands of Christians across the country answered the call to pray at the same time in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following positive feedback from last week’s prayer initiative, a further letter has been signed by 14 Christian organisations across Scotland. This week’s prayer is also available in both English and Gaelic.

Post your candle pictures on social media and to our church Facebook page using the hashtags #Pisky #prayersofhope

If you want to follow along live please head to our Facebook page at 1100h 29th March. After the service ends the video will be added to this page immediately for you to watch and take part in our worship at a time to suit you.

Holy Trinity DunfermlineEucharist Lent 5 11am

Posted by Holy Trinity Dunfermline – Scottish Episcopal Church on Sunday, 29 March 2020

Scottish Liturgy 1982 with Alternative Eucharistic Prayers The Liturgy is printed with a minimum of instructions out of a conviction that worship in a contemporary idiom must be adapted to suit particular times and places. The words printed in bold type are intended for us all to say as well as the celebrant. The bits in Italics are there to guide or help you along.

1. Welcome:
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

3. Collect for Purity:
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. Amen.

4. Summary of the Law †
Our Lord Jesus Christ said: The first commandment is this: “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is the only Lord. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all Your strength.” The second is this: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” There is no other commandment greater than these. Amen. Lord, have mercy

5. Confession and Absolution
God is love and we are his children. There is no room for fear in love. We love because he loved us first. 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. Amen.

6. Kyrie †
Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy

8. Collect of the day

Merciful God, look upon your family as we travel to the foot of the cross: and, by your great goodness, guide us in body; that, by your protection, we may also be preserved in heart and mind; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.  Amen

9. Old Testament Reading: Ezekiel 37:14-17

10. Epistle Reading: Romans 8:6-11

11. Gospel : John 1:17 – 45
When it is announced:
 Glory to Christ our Saviour.
At end: Give thanks to the Lord for his glorious Gospel. Praise to Christ our Lord.

13. Nicene Creed †
We believe in one God, the Father, the almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one substance with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father. With the Father and the Son, he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
Amen.

14. Intercessions
Prayer is offered for the world and its people, for those who suffer and those in need, for the Church and its members
.

16. Peace
We meet in Christ’s name. Let us share his peace.
Try and say peace be with you to each other via the online comments section.

17. Offering

Let us present our offerings to the Lord. 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.

18. Eucharistic Prayer III
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 harvest out of sorrow and leads the 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.

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 may reign.

Before he was given up to suffering and death, recalling Israel’s release, the night in which the sons of Egypt died, your Chosen One, himself the First-Born, freely offered his life. At supper with his disciples he took bread and offered you thanks. He broke 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, the apostles and prophets, and all our brothers and sisters living and departed.

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.

Amen

19. Breaking of the Bread
The living bread is broken for the life of the world.
Lord, unite us in this sign.

20. Lord’s Prayer
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 it is 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. Amen

22. Communion Song †
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

23. Sentence
An appropriate seasonal sentence may be used.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is gracious. And his mercy endures for ever.

24. Post communion prayer

God of hope, in this eucharist we have tasted the promise of your heavenly banquet and the richness of eternal life. May we who bear witness to the death of your Son also proclaim the glory of his resurrection, for he is Lord for ever and ever. Amen

25. Blessing †
Christ crucified draw you to himself, to find in him a sure ground for faith, a firm support for hope, and the assurance of sins forgiven; and the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, be among you and remain with you always. Amen.

26. Dismissal
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord. In the name of Christ. Amen.

From 18:15-19:45 Fife Cluster YF usually meet for a time of fun and fellowship with friends. This Sunday we have had to put a hold on our meetings like all other groups to keep safe.

Our leaders have shared what they have done with their day keeping safe by isolating but still sharing in faith and friendship, virtually or at a distance. We thought this may add a welcome change from other news in this worrying time.

Kenny enjoyed the spring sunshine whilst chatting to family.

Kenny hopes everyone can stay safe and well. He has family visiting so they will need to find ways of giving each other space. He is also planning to use this time to catch up on some reading.

Christine hopes everyone is safe and well. She has had a busy day doing a closed doors service, knitting, walking the YF mascot Bubbles and looking at the waves on the beach.

Christine wants to remind delegates we are all here for each other and will spend the next while doing lots of craft and reading all the books that are piled on her desk.

Wedge started watching a new TV show His Dark Materials which is on BBC iPlayer and enjoyed cooking sea bass with risotto for tea.

Wedge is still working from home but looks forward to catching up on the latest series of Outlander too.

Rachel watched the new Lion King this afternoon and enjoyed a strawberry and marshmallow chocolate fondue after dinner.

Rachel is hoping to do more self-care and continue bible journaling.

James hopes all are well during social distancing and isolation. He has taken time out to be outdoors in God’s creation by taking a still afternoons walk which meant he got to see this squirrel resting up a tree next to the village church:

James enjoyed being thankful for where Ellie and he live, taking time to pray for our community and those around us. He will be teaching his grandparents how to use their new iPhone to stay in communication with the family. He has enjoyed being in different places for worship taking advantage of the benefits technology can provide.

Sarah, a YF delegate who turned 17 today, has spent her day revising for an online Chemistry prelim she has tomorrow. We send birthday wishes and best of luck for tomorrow.

Sarah recommended watching TV show Race Across the World on BBC iPlayer and Lucy from YF agreed.

Fife Cluster YF want to wish all our congregations, delegates and their loved ones our thoughts, prayers and best wishes at this uncertain time and best of luck for those facing exams or coursework pressures (remember you can get in touch with any of us at any time to be a word of comfort, support or listening ear).

The Peace of God be with you all.

This Mothering Sunday will be a bit different for us all with our live stream.

18. Eucharistic Prayer V
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, Father, in every place and at all times. You made us, all the people of the world, and everything that is. You give us the daylight. Your Word lights up our minds. Jesus was born among us to be light in our darkness. Your Spirit lives in us so that we can look at the world with your eyes. One day we will be with you in heaven, but already we laugh with the saints and angels, and sing their joyful song:
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.

Father, you never forget us or turn away from us, even when we fail you. You sent your Son Jesus who gave his life for us. He healed those who were sick, cared for those who were poor, and cried with those who were sad. He forgave sinners and taught us to forgive. For all your love we give you thanks in the way that Jesus showed us.

On the night before he died, while he was having supper with his friends, 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.”

So, as we do what he told us, we open our hearts to him; we remember how he died and rose again to live now in us. Together with him we offer you these gifts: in them we give you ourselves. Send your Holy Spirit on us and on this bread and this wine, that they may be the Body and Blood of Christ, and that, sharing your life, we may travel in your company to our journey’s end. With all your people we give you thanks and praise through the Son and in the Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

19. Breaking of the Bread
The living bread is broken for the life of the world.
Lord, unite us in this sign.

20. Lord’s Prayer
As our Saviour has taught us, so we pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed he 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. Amen

22. Communion Song †

And the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, be among you and remain with you always. Amen

25. Blessing †
The peace of God which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord: And the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, be among you and remain with you always. Amen.
