The gospels tell us that on the night that he was betrayed, Jesus gathered his disciples together to share a meal. The group that he gathered came with various things on their minds, with various plans in their hearts. None of them fully understood what Jesus was doing.

Yet, they were the ones that Jesus wanted with him that night. They were there to receive the cup and the bread, to be washed by Jesus, to be told to do the same for others, and also to be told how much he loved them.

Today, we gather at the table with Jesus. We too, are here by invitation. We too, are here because Jesus wants us here, because Jesus wants us to be with him. Lets respond, receiving, sharing, celebrating and serving.

Shout To the Lord

Verse 1
My Jesus my Saviour
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love
My comfort my shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath all that I am
Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord
All the earth let us sing
Power and majesty
Praise to the King
Mountains bow down
And the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name
I sing for joy
At the work of Your hands
Forever I’ll love You
Forever I’ll stand
Nothing compares to the promise
I have in You

Prayer of Invocation
(inspired by Isaiah 5: 1-7, Psalm 80)

Most Gracious God
we greet you once again in this sacred space.

We have come because we need to be reminded
of your love and your expectations for our living.

We are like the vine you planted, watered and protected.
We know in our hearts
that we need, want and desire your presence in our lives.

So we come in prayer
and listen for your Word to speak to our hearts
and reveal again your desires for us. Amen.

Ephesians 4:25-5:1 NRSV


So then, putting away falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbors, for we are members of one another. Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not make room for the devil. Thieves must give up stealing; rather let them labor and work honestly with their own hands, so as to have something to share with the needy. Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up, as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with which you were marked with a seal for the day of redemption. Put away from you all bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander, together with all malice, and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children,

Seed, Scattered and Sown


Seed, scattered and sown,
Wheat, gathered and grown,
Bread, broken and shared as one,
The living bread of God.
Vine, fruit of the land,
Wine, work of our hands,
One cup that is shared by all;
The living cup, the living bread of God.

Verse 1

Is not the bread we break a sharing in our Lord?
Is not the cup we bless the blood of Christ outpoured?


Seed, scattered and sown,
Wheat, gathered and grown,
Bread, broken and shared as one,
The living bread of God.
Vine, fruit of the land,
Wine, work of our hands,
One cup that is shared by all;
The living cup, the living bread of God.

Verse 2

The seed which falls on rock will wither and will die
The seed within good ground will flower and have life.


Seed, scattered and sown,
Wheat, gathered and grown,
Bread, broken and shared as one,
The living bread of God.
Vine, fruit of the land,
Wine, work of our hands,
One cup that is shared by all;
The living cup, the living bread of God.

Verse 3 

As wheat upon the hills was gathered and was grown,
So may the church of God be gathered into one.


Seed, scattered and sown,
Wheat, gathered and grown,
Bread, broken and shared as one,
The living bread of God.
Vine, fruit of the land,
Wine, work of our hands,
One cup that is shared by all;
The living cup, the living bread of God.

Matthew 26:26-29 NRSV


While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, ‘Take, eat; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will never again drink of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.’

Lord Jesus,
We sit today at your table.
We gather in and because of your love.
It is in your love, that we ask that you bless this bread and cup.
We cannot make them to be more than they are.
But in your hands, they become your sacrifice of love.
Receive us now.
Give us what we cannot claim on our own:
the grace that heals
the spirit that redeems
the hope that makes us part of your new creation.
As we receive your body, your life,
make us a part of your own. Amen.

Almighty God,
From a sack of seed and a sower,
You make a field of grain that nourishes the hungery.
You add the contributions of many.
send rain,
and shine like your love with the sun.

We too have known Your love,
and experienced Your growth:
drawing us to be more loving,
more forgiving,
more holy and closer to you.

Nourish us,
strengthen us,
correct and prune us,
so others may see you alive through us.

You extend your love to the world around us—
to care for all as deeply as we care for ourselves.
And so we pray for the world you create;
the world you yearn to heal.

We pray for the many who do not have enough:
enough food to eat, or shelter to keep warm;
enough employment, or money to pay their bills;
enough medicine or medical care.


We also pray for those who have more than enough,
but recognize today that we are all weak and in need of your wisdom and strength.
We pray for our politicians and leaders, that they will guide us well.
We pray that we will remember our vulnerability,
and care for each other compassionately.

God, Your grace reaches out to all of us.
You call us to live as citizens of heaven,
working together with one heart and mind.
Strengthen us to live in a manner worthy
of the Good News we have received,
offering our lives in service of Your kingdom,
where the last are first, and the first are last,
and there is grace enough for all.
In the name of Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord, Amen.

Sent Forth by God’s Blessing

Verse 1

Sent forth by God’s blessing,
Our true faith confessing,
The people of God from this dwelling take leave.
The Supper is ended.
O now be extended
The fruits of this service in all who believe.
The fruit of Christ’s teaching,
Receptive souls reaching,
Shall blossom in action for God and for all.
His grace did invite us,
His love shall unite us
To work for God’s kingdom and answer His call.

Verse 2

With praise and thanksgiving
To God ever-living,
The tasks of our ev’ryday life we will face.
Our faith ever sharing,
In love ever caring,
Embracing the children of each tribe and race.
With Your feast You feed us,
With Your light now lead us;
Unite us as one in this life that we share.
Then may all the living
With praise and thanksgiving
Give honor to Christ and His name that we bear.

CCLI #1699256

Lord, as you have given, may we receive,
for the renewal of our souls,
the renewal of your love,
the coming of your new way in the earth.
May we never take it for granted,
but receive it new each day,
as fresh nourishment for our spirits,
as life that none can take from us,
as your salvation poured out for us.
In Jesus, our Lord, we pray. Amen.

Blessed Be the Ties that Bind

Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above
