All Saints

We remember that we are part of the communion of saints stretching across time and space. Our prayers are caught up in the great outpouring of praise and worship of the whole people of God.

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.

Rejoice, people of God, praise the Lord! Let us keep the feast in honour of all God’s saints, in whose victory the angels rejoice and glorify the Son of God.

O Lord, open our lips:
And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.
O God make speed to save us:
O Lord make haste to help us.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, is now and shall be for ever. Amen

Prayer of Preparation

We stand before the throne of God with countless crowds from every nation and race, tribe and language.
Blessing, glory, and wisdom,
thanksgiving and honour,
power and might
be to our God for ever and ever.


Christ calls us to share the heavenly banquet of his love with all the saints in earth and heaven. Knowing our unworthiness and sin, let us ask from him both mercy and forgiveness:

Silence is kept.

God our Father, we come to you in sorrow for our sins.
For turning away from you, and ignoring your will for our lives;
Father, forgive us.
Save us and help us.

For behaving just as we wish, without thinking of you;
Father, forgive us.
Save us and help us.

For failing you by what we do, and think and say;
Father, forgive us.
Save us and help us.

For letting ourselves be drawn away from you by temptations in the world;
Father, forgive us.
Save us and help us.

For living as if we were ashamed to belong to your Son;
Father, forgive us.
Save us and help us.


May the Father of all mercies, cleanse us from our sins, and restore us in his image to the praise and glory of his name, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.


We thank you, O God,
for the saints of all ages;
for those who kept the lamp of faith
burning in times of darkness;
for the great souls who saw visions
of larger truth and dared to declare it;
for the multitude of quiet and gracious
people whose presence has purified
and sanctified the world;
and for those we knew and loved,
who are now in the fuller light of life with you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,

Affirmation of Faith

Do you believe and trust in God the Father?
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

Do you believe and trust in his Son Jesus Christ?
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

Do you believe and trust in the Holy Spirit?
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.


Let us pray for our own needs and for the needs of the world:

Lord, meet us in the quiet.
And hear our prayer.

Prayers are offered.

We give you thanks for the
whole company of your saints in glory,
with whom in fellowship
we join our prayers and praises;
by your grace may we, like them,
be made perfect in your love.

Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us:

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.

The Peace

The peace of the Lord be always with you
And also with you.

Let us offer one another a sign of peace.

The Eucharistic Prayer

The Lord is here
His spirit is with us

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

Father, you made the world and love your creation.
You gave your Son Jesus Christ to be our Saviour.
His dying and rising have set us free from sin and death.
And so we gladly thank you,
with saints and angels praising you, and saying:

Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.

We praise and bless you, loving Father,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord;
and as we obey his command,
send your Holy Spirit,
that broken bread and wine outpoured
may be for us the body and blood of your dear Son.

Dying you destroyed our death,
rising you restored our life:
Lord Jesus, come in glory.

On the night before he died he had supper with his friends
and, taking bread, he praised you.
He broke the bread, gave it to them and said:
Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;
do this in remembrance of me.

When supper was ended he took the cup of wine.
Again he praised you, gave it to them and said:
Drink this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant,
which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.

Great is the mystery of faith.
Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again

We break this bread to share in the body of Christ
Though we are many we are one body because we all share in one bread.

Blessing and honour and glory and power be yours for ever and ever.

Dear Friends,
receive the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ
with faith and thanksgiving.
Remember that he gave himself for you.
Remember that he died for you,
and allow him to feed and nourish
your body, mind, and spirit.

The Distribution

Prayer after Communion

Let us give thanks to God:

Almighty God,
we thank you for feeding us with the

body and blood of your Son Jesus Christ.
Through him we offer you our

souls and bodies to be a living sacrifice.
Send us out in the power of your Spirit
to live and work to your praise and glory.

A Song of the Church (Te Deum)

We praise you, O God, we acclaim you as the Lord; all creation worships you, the Father everlasting. To you all angels, all the powers of heaven, the cherubim and seraphim, sing in endless praise:
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
The glorious company of apostles praise you.
The noble fellowship of prophets praise you.
The white-robed army of martyrs praise you.

Throughout the world the holy Church acclaims you: Father, of majesty unbounded, your true and only Son, worthy of all praise, the Holy Spirit, advocate and guide.
You, Christ, are the King of glory,
the eternal Son of the Father.
When you took our flesh to set us free
you humbly chose the virgin’s womb.
You overcame the sting of death
and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.

You are seated at God’s right hand in glory. We believe that you will come and be our judge.
Come then, Lord, and help your people,
bought with the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints to glory everlasting.

Dismissal Prayer

Keep us, Father,
in this community of faith,
the Church of your Son Jesus Christ,
and help us to confess him as Messiah and Lord
in all we say and do.
We ask this in his name.


May Christ who makes saints of sinners, who has transformed those we remember today, raise and strengthen us, that we may transform the world; and may the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be among us and remain with us always. Amen.

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