The Collect of the Day

The Collect is a collection of the prayers of God’s people. This prayer asks God to prepare our hearts to love Him and praise Him properly and it changes every week to match the overall theme of the Sunday. Saying this collecting prayer also unites us in worship with the 78 million Anglicans worldwide who are also saying this same prayer today.

Celebrant The Lord be with you.

People And with your spirit.

Celebrant Let us pray.
Almighty God, whose blessed Son our Savior Jesus Christ ascended far above all heavens that he might fill all things: Mercifully give us faith to perceive that, according to his promise, he abides with his Church on earth, even to the end of the ages; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
Scripture Lessons

The Bible is at the heart of our worship, because in it we read and understand the very words of God. Every word in the Bible has come from God and is vitally important so that we can know His heart and His truth. Each week during our service, we read a section of the Old Testament, a Psalm, a section from the New Testament, and a reading from the Gospels. If you do not have your own Bible, we would like to give you one as a free gift – please speak to a clergy member or an usher.
First Lesson: Acts 1:1-11

1In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach, 2until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. 3He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God. 4And while staying with them he ordered them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, he said, “you heard from me; 5for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” 6So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. 8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” 9And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight. 10And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, 11and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.” The Word of the Lord.

Psalm 47

1 Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!

2 For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.

3 He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet.

4 He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

5 God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

7 For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm! 

8 God reigns over the nations; God sits on his holy throne.

9 The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; he is highly exalted!

Epistle: Ephesians 1:15-23

15For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, 16I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 20that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, 23which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. The Word of the Lord.
People Thanks be to God

People Glory to you, Lord Christ.
Gospel: Luke 24:49-53

[Jesus said to his disciples,] 49And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.” 50Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them. 51While he blessed them, he parted from them and was carried up into heaven. 52And they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53and were continually in the temple blessing God. The Gospel of the Lord.

People Praise to You, Lord Christ.

The Sermon

From the earliest days of the Christian Church, the reading of Scripture has been followed by a teaching (or sermon) to help the believers understand how the Scriptures help us live our Christian lives. Throughout the year at Christ Church, you will hear sermons from Fr. Brian and Fr. Don or one of our Deacons, Dee or Rosalind.

Nicene Creed

This is a statement of our Christian belief that was written by an early counsel of Christians in Nicaea who wanted to create a simple statement of true Biblical Christianity. Note, the word “catholic” refers to the universal Christian church.

Let us confess our faith in the words of the Nicene Creed:
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, visible and invisible.

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 and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and 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, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who 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.
The Prayers of the People
This is a time for group prayer as well as personal prayers. Please prayerfully respond to the leader with the words in bold type. And please add your own prayers of thanksgiving and intercession either silently or aloud when invited to do so.
Deacon Let us pray for the whole state of Christ’s Church and the world.
Reader Almighty and ever-living God, in your holy Word you have taught us to offer prayers and requests, and to give thanks for all whom you have made. We appeal to your mercy, Gracious Lord, that you might hear our prayer. Lord, in your mercy,

People hear our prayer.
Reader Inspire your universal Church by your Spirit, granting that all who confess your holy Name may agree in the truth of your holy Word and live in unity and godly love. Lord, in your mercy,

People hear our prayer.
Reader Give grace, heavenly Father, to all Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, and especially Robert Duncan, our Archbishop; Bill Thompson, our Bishop; Fr. Brian and Fr. Don, our Priests; Dee and Rosalind, our Deacons, that by their life and teaching, they may proclaim your true and life-giving Word, and rightly administer your holy Sacraments. Lord, in your mercy,

People hear our prayer.
Reader Help us to fulfill your great commission; making disciples of all nations; teaching them to obey all that you have commanded. Lord, in your mercy,

People hear our prayer.
Reader We ask you to rule the hearts of all who govern us. May they administer justice, govern wisely, and strive for the welfare and peace of the whole world. Lord, in your mercy,

Reader Grant your heavenly grace to all people, especially these gathered here, that with meek and reverent hearts, we may hear and trust your holy Word, devoting our lives to your righteous service. Lord, in your mercy,

People hear our prayer.
Reader We humbly ask you, gracious Lord, to comfort and strengthen all those who, in this earthly life are in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity. Lord, in your mercy,

People hear our prayer.
Reader I invite you to add your own requests at this time.
Reader We bless your holy Name for all your servants who departed this life in your faith and fear, praying you would grant us grace to follow their good examples, that with them we might partake in your heavenly kingdom. Lord, in your mercy,

People hear our prayer.
Celebrant Grant these our prayers, O Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake, our only Mediator and Advocate. Amen.
The Confession and Absolution of Sin
Deacon We pray to you also for the forgiveness of our sins.
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 neighbors 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.

The Bishop or Priest stands and says

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who in his great mercy has promised forgiveness of sins to all those who sincerely repent and with true faith turn to him, have mercy upon you, pardon and deliver you from all your sins, confirm and strengthen you in all goodness, and bring you to everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Peace

Celebrant The Peace of the Lord be always with you.

People And with your spirit.
Fr. Brian or Fr. Don will point out noteworthy events. Please see the announcement reels that play on the screen before and after the service.
Birthday PrayerPray together

O God, our times are in your hand: Look with favor we pray on you servant as he begins another year. Grant that he may grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen his trust in your goodness all the days of his life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Anniversary Prayer & Blessing of the Marriage

O God, you have so consecrated the covenant of marriage that in it is represented the spiritual unity between Christ and his Church: Send therefore your blessing upon these your servants, that they may so love, honor, and cherish each other in faithfulness and patience, in wisdom and true godliness, that their home may be a haven of blessing and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, bless, preserve, and keep you; the Lord mercifully with his favor look upon you, and fill you with all spiritual benediction and grace; that you may faithfully live together in this life, and in the age to come have life everlasting. Amen.

The Offertory
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
You may place money (check or cash) in the offering plate that will go toward the work of Christ Church to build the kingdom of God in Fallbrook and beyond. You may enter into singing or simply listen, and you may sit or stand as you feel led. This is a time of offering our gifts to the Lord.
Offertory Anthem: “The Ascension”
This is the start of something amazing, a moment when heaven touches earth

Here in our hearts Lord we are waiting for something that's far beyond what we have seen or heard

Let us start the ascension, let's begin the climb

Up this holy mountain where Your glory shines

Further up, further in just to be with You again

Let us start (the ascension)

We're fixing our eyes on glory and fire, Your name is branded on our hearts

You are the source of all we desire, nothing can hold us back, we're running to where You are


Praise God from whom all blessings flow, praise him all creatures here below,

Praise him above ye heavenly hosts, praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

The words of this part of the service are taken directly from the Biblical account of the Last Supper when Jesus took the bread and wine and invited the disciples to eat and drink of His body and blood. We do this in remembrance of Jesus, just as He instructed and we believe God is with us in this holy feast.

Celebrant The Lord be with you.

People And with your spirit.

Celebrant Lift up your hearts.

People We lift them to the Lord.

Celebrant Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

People It is just and right so to do.
It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. But chiefly are we bound to praise you for the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord: for he is the true Paschal Lamb, which was offered for us, and has taken away the sin of the world; who by his death has destroyed death, and by his rising to life again has restored us to everlasting life. Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who forever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:
Christ Church Sanctus”
Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord Almighty. Holy, Holy, Holy, God of Power and Might.

Holy, Holy, Holy, the whole earth is full…of your glory (repeat)
Hosanna, save us! Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord Almighty. Holy, Holy, Holy, God of Power and Might

Holy, Holy, Holy, the whole earth is full…of your glory. Holy, Holy, Holy… Holy, Holy, Holy…
The Prayer of Consecration
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, in your tender mercy, you gave your only Son Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption. He offered himself and made, once for all time, a perfect and sufficient sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. He instituted this remembrance of his passion and death, which he commanded us to continue until he comes again. So now, Father, we ask you to bless and sanctify, with your Word and Holy Spirit, these gifts of bread and wine that we may partake of his most blessed Body and Blood.

On the night that he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given 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.”

After supper, Jesus took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink this, all of you; for this is my Blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for you, and for many, for the forgiveness of sins: Whenever you drink it, do this in remembrance of me.”
Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:
Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.

Lord and heavenly Father, with these holy gifts we celebrate the memorial instituted by your beloved Son, remembering his passion and death, his resurrection and ascension, and his promise to come again. Grant that by his merits and death, and through faith in his Blood, we and your whole Church may receive forgiveness of our sins and all other benefits of his passion, making us one body with him that he may dwell in us, and we in him. And here we offer to you, O Lord, ourselves, our souls and bodies, to be a living sacrifice, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

By him and with him and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and forever. Amen.
The Lord’s Prayer
Celebrant And now as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to pray
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, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
The Fraction
Celebrant Alleluia. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.

People Therefore let us keep the feast. Alleluia.
Fraction Anthem:Love Divine, All Loves Excelling”
Love divine, all loves excelling, Joy of heaven, to earth come down,

Fix in us thy humble dwelling, all Thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, Thou art all compassion, Pure, unbounded love Thou art;

Visit us with Thy salvation, enter every trembling heart.

Come, Almighty to deliver, let us all Thy life receive;

Suddenly return, and never, nevermore Thy temples leave.

Thee we would be always blessing, serve Thee as Thy hosts above,

Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing, glory in Thy perfect love.

Finish then Thy new creation; pure and spotless let us be;

Let us see Thy great salvation perfectly restored in Thee:

Changed from glory into glory, till in heaven we take our place,

Till we cast our crowns before Thee, Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

The Ministration of Communion
Celebrant Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb. John 1:29, Revelation 19:9
All baptized Christians may receive Holy Communion. You may eat the bread and take a sip from the chalice or dip your bread into the chalice. Gluten free hosts are available upon request. All are welcomed to come forward for a blessing. If you are not receiving communion, simply cross your arms when you reach one of the priests. This indicates to them that you would like a special blessing.
Members of the healing ministry are available to pray for you or for your loved ones.
Communion Music
I See the Lord”
I see the Lord seated on the throne exalted

And the train of His robe fills the temple with glory

And the whole earth is filled… and the whole earth is filled

And the whole earth is filled with His glory

Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord

Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord of lords

Exalted, He is exalted, on high, He is exalted

For great is the Lord let all the nations say, exalted, He is exalted

Blessing and honor, glory and power, unto the Lord be praise

Sing with the chorus resounding before us, holy is His name, His name

(bridge) Yahweh holy is Your name (repeat)

The Post Communion Prayer
Celebrant Let us pray.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food of the most precious Body and Blood of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; and for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the Body of your Son, and heirs of your eternal kingdom. And now, Father, send us out into the world to do the work you have given us to do, to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord. To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.
The Blessing
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 our Lord; and the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be among you, and remain with you always. Amen.
Closing Hymn: “Days of Elijah”
These are the days of Elijah, declaring the Word of the Lord

And these are the days of Your servant Moses, righteousness being restored

And these are the days of great trial, of famine and darkness and sword

Still, we are a voice in the desert crying “Prepare ye the way of the Lord”

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds, shining like the sun at the trumpet call

Lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee and out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes!
These are the days of Ezekiel, the dry bones becoming as flesh

And these are the days of Your servant David, rebuilding the temple of praise

These are the days of the harvest, the fields are as white in the world

And we are the laborers in the vineyard Declaring the Word of the Lord.

(bridge) There is no God like Jehovah! There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah! There is no God like Jehovah!
