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 being 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 and the Son.
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

PRAYER OF HUMBLE ACCESS

  1. PRAYER OF HUMBLE ACCESS
    (All Kneeling)
    All: We do not presume
    to come to Your table,
    merciful Lord,
    trusting in our own righteousness
    but in Your manifold and great mercies.
    We are not worthy so much
    as to gather up the crumbs under Your table
    But You are the same Lord,
    whose nature is always to have mercy.
    Grant us, therefore, gracious Lord,
    so to eat the flesh of Your dear Son Jesus Christ,
    and to drink His blood;
    that we may evermore dwell in Him
    and He in us. Amen.

CONSECRATING ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS

If either or both of the consecrated elements be likely to prove insufficient, the President himself returns to the holy table and adds more, saying these words.
(for bread) Our Saviour, Christ,
in the same night he was betrayed,
took bread and gave you thanks;
He broke it and gave it to His disciples saying:
“Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;
do this in remembrance of me”.
(for wine) In the same way, after supper,
He took the cup and gave You thanks,
He gave it to them,
Saying: “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 in remembrance of me.
A Hymn may be sung (Ablution)
(Here any consecrated bread and wine which is not required for purposes of communion is consumed)


 

AFTER COMMUNION

Appropriate sentence may be said here.
26. President: As our Saviour taught us, so we pray,
All: 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. Amen.
27. Either or both of the follow prayers or other suitable prayer is said.
President: Father of all, we give You thanks and praise, that when we were still far off You met us in Your Son and brought us home, Dying and living he declared Your love, gave us grace, and opened the gate of glory. May we who share Christ’s Body, live His risen life. We who drink His cup, bring life to others; We whom the Spirit lights give light to the world. Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us. So we and Your children shall be free, and the whole earth live to praise Your name: through Christ our Lord.
All: Amen.
All: 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. Amen.
