Opening Hymn: We Love the Place, O God (#355, Red Binding)

Copyright Canada 1971 by the Anglican Church of Canada and the United Church of Canada.

Opening Verse: (Rev. Roy Shepherd)


Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.

Isaiah 6:3

We love the place, O God,

Wherein thine honour dwells;

The joy of thine abode

All earthly joy excels.


We love the word of life;

The word that tells of peace,

Of comfort in the strife

And joys that never cease.


Lord Jesus, give us grace

On earth to love thee more,

In heaven to see thy face,

And with thy saints adore.

We love the sacred font;
for there the holy Dove
to pour is ever wont
his blessing from above.  

Opening Hymn: All Creatures of Our God and King (CP 355)

All creatures of our God and King,

Lift up your voices, let us sing:

Alleluia, alleluia!

Bright burning sun and golden beams,

Pale silver moon that gently gleams,

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!


Earth ever fertile, day by day,

Unfold your blessings on our way

O sing now, alleluia!

All flowers and fruit that in you grow,

God’s glory let them also show:

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!


Let all things their creator bless,

And worship God in humbleness,

Alleluia, alleluia!

Praise God the Father, praise the Son,

And praise the Spirit, Three in One:

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Collect: (Rev. Roy Shepherd)


The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

and the love of God,

and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,

be with you all.



And also with you.


Almighty God,



to you all hearts are open,

all desires known, 

and from you 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.


Celebrant           Glory to God in the highest,


and peace to his people on earth.

Lord God, heavenly king, almighty God and Father,

we worship you, we give you thanks,

we praise you for your glory.

Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,

Lord God, Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world:

have mercy on us;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father:

receive our prayer.

For you alone are the Holy One,

you alone are the Lord,

you alone are the Most High,

Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit,

in the glory of God the Father. Amen.



Father, we praise you: through your Word and Holy Spirit you created all things. 

You reveal your salvation in all the world by sending to us Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.

Through your Holy Spirit you give us a share in your life and love.

Fill us with the vision of your glory, that we may always serve and praise you,

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. AMEN.

Genesis 1:1-4, 24, 25b, 26a, 27-28, 31a; 2:1-2a, 3

In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.

And God said, ‘Let the earth bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle and creeping things and wild animals of the earth of every kind.’ And it was so. God made the wild animals of the earth of every kind, and the cattle of every kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground of every kind. And God saw that it was good.

Then God said, ‘Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.’

So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.’ God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all their multitude. And on the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all the work that he had done in creation.

The Word of the Lord.                              

Thanks be to God.

O Lord our governor, how exalted is your name in all the world!

Out of the mouths of infants and children your majesty is praised above the heavens.

You have set up a stronghold against your adversaries, to quell the enemy and the avenger.

When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars you have set in their courses,

What is man that you should be mindful of him? the son of man that you should seek him out?

You have made him but little lower than the angels; you adorn him with glory and honour;

You give him mastery over the works of your hands; you put all things under his feet;

All sheep and oxen, even the wild beasts of the field,

The birds of the air, the fish of the sea, and whatsoever walks in the paths of the sea.

O Lord our governor, how exalted is your name in all the world!

A Reading from the Second Letter of Paul to the Corinthians: (Brian Carr)

2 Corinthians 13:11-13

Finally, brothers and sisters, farewell. Put things in order, listen to my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.

The Word of the Lord.                              

Thanks be to God.

Hymn: Majesty, Worship His Majesty

Majesty, worship his majesty,

Unto Jesus be all honour, glory and praise.

Majesty, kingdom authority

Flow from his throne

unto his own,

his anthem raise.

So exalt, lift up on high the name of Jesus;

Magnify, come, glorify Christ Jesus the King.

Majesty, worship his majesty;

Jesus who died,

now glorified,

King of all kings.

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Hymn: Lord the Light of your Love is Shining (CP 460)

Lord, the light of your love is shining,

In the midst of the darkness shining;

Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us;

Set us free by the truth you now bring us,

Shine on me, shine on me.


Shine, Jesus, shine; fill this land with the Father’s glory,

Blaze, Spirit, blaze; set our hearts on fire.

Flow, river, flow; flood the nations with grace and mercy;

Send forth your word, Lord and let there be light.


Lord, I come to your awesome presence,

From the shadows into your radiance;

By the blood I may enter your brightness;

Search me, try me, consume all my darkness;

Shine on me, shine on me.          



As we gaze on your kingly brightness

So our faces display your likeness;

Ever changing from glory to glory,

Mirrored here may our lives tell your story,

Shine on me, shine on me.          


Apostles' Creed: (Rev. Pam Trondson)


Let us confess the faith of our baptism, as we say,



I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

He 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,

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

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.

God in three persons, blessed Trinity, on this special day, we come before you to offer our praise and adoration. You are God, the Creator, giving us richly all things to enjoy. You are Christ the Saviour of the world, made flesh to set us free. You are the Spirit of truth and love, willing to dwell in us. You are the holy and blessed one God, eternal Trinity. As we join in prayer today amidst a global pandemic and social unrest around the world, let our response be: Lord of love and compassion, hear our prayer.


We pray for the church, our bishops, Linda, Andrew and Kevin, and our clergy, Pam, Roy and Jacquie. Give courage and wisdom to all leaders in your church that they may provide the compassionate pastoral care and support needed by so many in our community in these uncertain times. Lord of love and compassion, hear our prayer.


O Lord, open our hearts to respect and uplift the dignity of every person, regardless of race, colour or creed. Open our ears to listen and learn from the experiences of others. Open our mouths to speak out against prejudice and injustice. Lord of love and compassion, hear our prayer.


O Lord, sustain and protect all health care workers, doctors, researchers and all medical professionals who seek to heal and help those affected by the pandemic and who have put themselves at risk to save the lives of others. Lord of love and compassion, hear our prayer.


O Lord, be with the leaders of all nations. Give them the foresight to act with charity and true concern for the well-being of the people they are meant to serve. Give them the wisdom to invest in long-term solutions that will help prepare for or prevent future outbreaks. Lord of love and compassion, hear our prayer.


We pray for our family and friends, those far away and those close by, who are estranged from us and those on whom we depend daily. In these days of physical distancing, keep us close together through all the means of communication that we have today. We thank you for the members of our parish who strive each week to make possible this virtual church service to help us worship together until we can return to our parish home. Lord of love and compassion, hear our prayer.


O Lord, be with the families of those who are sick or have died and those needing our prayers whom we have in this time of silence -----------. Let your healing spirit ease their suffering and give them strength to face the long days ahead. Lord of love and compassion, hear our prayer.


Spirit of Truth and Love, move in us and among us as we face the week ahead trusting in your abiding love and protection. Amen.

Confession & Absolution, Peace, Doxology, Blessing: (Rev. Pam Trondson)


Dear friends in Christ,

God is steadfast in love and infinite in mercy;

he welcomes sinners and invites them to his table.

Let us confess our sins, confident in God’s forgiveness.


Silence is kept.



Most merciful God,



we confess that we have sinned against you

in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done,

and by what we have left undone.

We have not loved you with our whole heart;

we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves.

We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.

For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,

have mercy on us and forgive us,

that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your name. Amen.


Almighty God have mercy upon you,

pardon and deliver you from all your sins,

confirm and strengthen you in all goodness,

and keep you in eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.






And now, as our Saviour Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,



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.


The Peace

Celebrant          The peace of the Lord be always with you.

People                And also with you.


Celebrant         Glory to God,


whose power, working in us,

can do infinitely more

than we can ask or imagine.

Glory to God from generation to generation,

in the Church and in Christ Jesus,

for ever and ever. Amen.


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; and the blessing of God,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, be with you and those you love, now and always. Amen.

Closing Hymn: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty (CP 1)

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty,

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!


Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

Cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,

Which wert, and art, and evermore shall be.


Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea;

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty,

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!
