Almighty God, our heavenly Father, you promised through your Son Jesus Christ to hear us when we pray in faith.

 

Strengthen N our bishop and all your Church in the service of Christ, that those who confess your name may be united in your truth, live together in your love, and reveal your glory in the world.

 

Bless and guide Elizabeth our Queen; give wisdom to all in authority; and direct this and every nation in the ways of justice and of peace; that we may honour one another, and seek the common good.

 

Give grace to us, our families and friends, and to all our neighbours, that we may serve Christ in one another, and love as he loves us.

 

Comfort and heal all those who suffer in body, mind, or spirit … ; give them courage and hope in their troubles; and bring them the joy of your salvation.

 

Hear us as we remember those who have died in the faith of Christ … ; according to your promises, grant us with them a share in your eternal kingdom.

 

Rejoicing in the fellowship of [N and of] all your saints, we commend ourselves and the whole creation to your unfailing love.

 

Merciful Father,

All      accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

The Peace

We are the body of Christ. In the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body. Let us then pursue all that makes for peace and builds up our common life.

The peace of the Lord be always with you

All      and also with you.

 

Preparation of the Table

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation: through your goodness we have this bread to set before you, which earth has given and human hands have made. It will become for us the bread of life.

All      Blessed be God for ever. Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation: through your goodness we have this wine to set before you, fruit of the vine and work of human hands. It will become for us the cup of salvation.

All      Blessed be God for ever.

 

The Eucharistic Prayer

The Lord be with you All and also with you. Lift up your hearts.

All      We lift them to the Lord.  

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All      It is right to give thanks and praise.  

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,

always and everywhere to give you thanks,

holy Father, almighty and eternal God.

From sunrise to sunset this day is holy,

for Christ has risen from the tomb and scattered

the darkness of death with light that will not fade.

This day the risen Lord walks with your gathered people,

unfolds for us your word, and makes himself known

in the breaking of the bread.

And though the night will overtake this day you summon us to

live in endless light, the never-ceasing sabbath of the Lord.  

And so, with choirs of angels and with all the heavenly host,

we proclaim your glory and join their unending song of praise:

All      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.
 

We praise and bless you, loving Father,

through Jesus Christ, our Lord; and as we obey his command,

send your Holy Spirit, that broken bread and wine

outpoured may be for us the body and blood

of your dear Son. On the night before he died

he had supper with his friends and, taking bread,

he praised you. He broke the bread,

gave it to them and said: Take, eat;

this is my body which is given for you;

do this in remembrance of me. When supper was ended

he took the cup of wine. Again he praised you,

gave it to them and said: 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, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.

So, Father, we remember all that Jesus did, in him

we plead with confidence his sacrifice made once

for all upon the cross. Bringing before you the

bread of life and cup of salvation, we proclaim his death

and resurrection until he comes in glory.

Great is the mystery of faith.

All      Christ has died:

          Christ is risen:

          Christ will come again.  

Lord of all life, help us to work together for that day

when your kingdom comes and justice and mercy

will be seen in all the earth.

Look with favour on your

people, gather us in your loving arms and bring us with [N and]
all the saints to feast at your table in heaven.

Through Christ, and with Christ, and in Christ, in the

unity of the Holy Spirit, all honour and glory are yours,

O loving Father, for ever and ever.

All     Amen.  

As our Saviour taught us, so we pray:

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

OR:

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  

We break this bread to share in the body of Christ.

All      Though we are many, we are one body, because we all share in one bread.  

God’s holy gifts for God’s holy people.

All      Jesus Christ is holy, Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the
          Father.

The Liturgy of Licensing

The Declaration and Oaths

 

The bishop addresses the minister to be licensed.

 

Bishop      The Church of England is part of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church, worshipping the one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  It professes the faith uniquely revealed in the holy Scriptures and set forth in the catholic creeds, which faith the Church is called upon to proclaim afresh in each generation.  Led by the Holy Spirit, it has borne witness to Christian truth in its historic formularies, the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion, The Book of Common Prayer and the Ordering of Bishops, Priests and Deacons.  In the declaration you are about to make, will you affirm your loyalty to this inheritance of faith as your inspiration and guidance under God in bringing the grace and truth of Christ to this generation and making him known to those in your care?

 

The minister makes the declaration of assent

 

I, N, do so affirm, and accordingly declare my belief in the faith which is revealed in the holy Scriptures and set forth in the catholic creeds and to which the historic formularies of the Church of England bear witness and in public prayer and administration of the sacraments, I will use only the forms of service which are authorised or allowed by canon.

 

The minister, taking a bible in his right hand, swears the oath of allegiance

 

I, N, do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, her heirs and successors according to law, so help me God.

 

Still holding the bible, the minister swears the oath of canonical obedience

 

I, N, do swear by almighty God that I will pay true and canonical obedience to the lord bishop of Oxford, [the area bishop of Reading] and their successors in all things lawful and honest, so help me God.

 

The minister signs the declaration and oaths and the appointed commissary signs to confirm the declaration and oaths were taken in their presence.

The Licensing

 

The bishop signs and reads the Deed of Licence saying,

 

Receive this cure of souls (OR) license; [which is both yours and mine] in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

All        Amen.

 

The bishop commends the new minister and the ministry team to the prayers of the people.

 

Taking her pastoral staff, the bishop blesses the new minister and ministry team saying,

 

Almighty God,

who for the salvation of the world

gives to his people many gifts and ministries

to the advancement of his glory,

stir up in you the gifts of his grace,

and sustain you in your ministry.

 

or

 

The God of all faithfulness

strengthen you for your ministry and commitment to one another;

the God of all grace give you vision, courage and joy; and the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

Preparation of the Table

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation:
through your goodness we have this bread to set before you,
which earth has given and human hands have made.
It will become for us the bread of life.

All        Blessed be God for ever.

Lift up your hearts.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All        It is right to give thanks and praise.

 

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
holy Father, almighty and eternal God.
From sunrise to sunset this day is holy,
for Christ has risen from the tomb
and scattered the darkness of death
with light that will not fade.
This day the risen Lord walks with your gathered people,
unfolds for us your word,
and makes himself known in the breaking of the bread.
And though the night will overtake this day
you summon us to live in endless light,
the never-ceasing sabbath of the Lord.
And so, with choirs of angels
and with all the heavenly host,
we proclaim your glory
and join their unending song of praise:

All       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.

We praise and bless you, loving Father,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord;
and as we obey his command,
send your Holy Spirit,
that broken bread and wine outpoured
may be for us the body and blood of your dear Son.
On the night before he died he had supper with his friends
and, taking bread, he praised you.
He broke the bread, gave it to them and said:
Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;
do this in remembrance of me.
When supper was ended he took the cup of wine.
Again he praised you, gave it to them and said:
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, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.
So, Father, we remember all that Jesus did,
in him we plead with confidence his sacrifice
made once for all upon the cross.

Bringing before you the bread of life and cup of salvation,
we proclaim his death and resurrection
until he comes in glory.

Great is the mystery of faith.

All       Christ has died.
           Christ is risen.
           Christ will come again.

Lord of all life, help us to work together for that day
when your kingdom comes and justice and mercy will

be seen in all the earth.

Look with favour on your people,
gather us in your loving arms
and bring us with [
N and] all the saints
to feast at your table in heaven.

Through Christ, and with Christ, and in Christ,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
all honour and glory are yours, O loving Father,
for ever and ever.

All     Amen.

 

As our Saviour taught us, so we pray:

     

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

     OR

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

               

We break this bread
to share in the body of Christ.

All       Though we are many, we are one body,
            because we all share in one bread.

God’s holy gifts for God’s holy people.

All       Jesus Christ is holy,
           Jesus Christ is Lord,
           to the glory of God the Father.
