Sunday Hope for 28th June led by Canon Julie Boyd


The Diocese of Norwich has a weekly audio podcast called ‘Sunday Hope’ which you can listen to by visiting the Diocesan website.   

It contains a reading, reflection, some questions to ponder and some prayers. 

This short service can also be listened to from any landline telephone.  Call 01603 537577 (local rate) to hear the latest edition.


For the service for 28th June it has been my privilege to lead the service on behalf of the Diocese.  You will hear the reflection that I have prepared, and you will also hear Matthew reading scripture.

Holy Communion

in the Celtic Style


The Gathering

The Greeting


We meet in the name of God:

Father, Son and Holy Spirit.



The Lord of glory be with you

The Lord of glory bless you.



From mist and darkness, from restful waters

God gathers us.



From health and sickness, from plenty and poverty

God gathers us.



From highroads and byways, from fields and cities

God gathers us.



To a feast, a banquet, to life eternal

God gathers us.



Prayers of Penitence

Whoever is on the Lord’s side, let them join with me that we may come to the visions of God.


We sit or kneel and keep a moments silence

Create a clean heart within me, O God,

so that it may become your chosen shelter

and the resting place of the Holy Spirit.

I make the cross of Christ upon my breast,

over the tablet of my heart,

and I beseech the living God of the universe,

may the Light of lights

come to my dark heart

so that I may live in the power of your love.


Pour down upon us from heaven

the rich blessing of your forgiveness.

Grant to us, O Saviour of Glory,

the fear of God, the love of God and his affection,

and the will of God to do on earth at all times

as angels and saints do in heaven.

In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit





The Collect

Almighty God, who inspired your apostle Peter to confess Jesus as Christ and Son of the living God: build up your Church upon this rock, that in unity and peace it may proclaim one truth and follow one Lord, your Son our Saviour Christ.  Amen.

The Liturgy of the Word

Gospel Reading

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ

according to St. Matthew

Glory to you, O Lord.


This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, O Christ. 


The Reflection


Prayers of Intercession


The Liturgy of the Sacrament


The Peace

Christ, King of Tenderness,

Bind us with a bond of love that cannot be broken.

My brothers and sisters, the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

and also with you.


This peace we share with one another


Hymn   O Thou who camest from above

O thou who camest from above
the fire celestial to impart,
kindle a flame of sacred love
on the mean altar of my heart.

There let it for thy glory burn
with inextinguishable blaze,
and trembling to its source return
in humble prayer and fervent praise.

Jesus, confirm my heart's desire
to work, and speak, and think for thee;
still let me guard the holy fire,
and still stir up the gift in me.

Still let me prove thy perfect will,
my acts of faith and love repeat;
till death thy endless mercies seal,
and make the sacrifice complete.

Preparation of the Table

Taking of the Bread and Wine

We bless you, High King of all creation.

Through your goodness

we have this bread and wine to offer,

which earth has given and human hands have made;

they will become our spiritual food and drink.

Blessed be God for ever.


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 thanks and praise.


The President praises God for his mighty acts and we all respond by saying :


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.


The President recalls the Last Supper and the acclamations are used :


Great is the mystery of faith:

Christ has died,

Christ is risen,

Christ will come again.


The prayer continues and lead into the Doxology


The Lord’s Prayer


Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done;

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory

for ever and ever.  Amen.

Breaking of the Bread


The Agnus Dei is said as the bread is broken

Jesus, Lamb of God, have mercy on us.

Jesus, bearer of our sins, have mercy on us.

Jesus, redeemer of the world, grant us peace.


Giving of Communion


If you are thirsty, drink the Fount of Life.

If you are hungry, eat the Bread of Life.

Blessed are all who hunger for this Bread

and thirst for this Fount.


The bread and the wine will be reverently consumed after the service.  Together we share in a Spiritual Communion



Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits you have given me,
for all the pains and insults you have borne for me.  Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, I ask you to come spiritually into my heart.  O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother, may I know you more clearly, love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly, day by day. Amen.

Prayer after Communion


Eternal God, giver of love and power,

your Son Jesus Christ has sent us into all the world

to preach the gospel of his kingdom:

confirm us in this mission,

and help us to live the good news we proclaim;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.



The Sending Out

The Blessing


I bless you in the name of the Father,

the Son and the Sacred Spirit:

the One and the Three.

May God give you to drink of his cup;

may the sun be bright upon you;

may the night call down peace;

and when you come to his household may the door be open wide for you to go in to your joy.



Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

In the name of Christ. Amen.
