Worship & Location

"Bridging People of all Faiths and Nations...."

 We worship each Sunday morning at 10.30.

 

Our services follow the order of the Church of England’s prayer book called Common Worship.  We pray together; read Scripture; sing hymns both traditional and more contemporary; listen to the words of the sermon; and receive the Body and Blood of our Lord in Holy Communion. 

We follow the liturgical year in our worship, moving from one sacred season to the next -- from Advent to Christmas, from Epiphany to Lent, from Easter to Pentecost, and beyond.   

 

We also have an outstanding choir.   

 

Our services usually last just over an hour.  Many folks remain after the service for fellowship, free refreshments, and treats.

We Worship at:
Józsefvárosi Evangélikus Egyházközség Temploma
1085 Budapest
Szentkirályi utca 51

Prayers and Readings for the week

All Saints' Day

11/03/19

Year C
 RCL

Almighty God, you have knit together your elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of your Son Christ our Lord: grant us grace so to follow your blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living that we may come to those inexpressible joys that you have prepared for those who truly love you; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

 

Post-Communion

 

God, the source of all holiness and giver of all good things: may we who have shared at this table as strangers and pilgrims here on earth be welcomed with all your saints to the heavenly feast on the day of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

 

 

A Reading from the Book of the Prophet Daniel.

 

In the first year of King Belshazzar [bell-SHAH-czar] of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head as he lay in bed. 

 

Then he wrote down the dream: 

 

I, Daniel, saw in my vision by night the four winds of heaven stirring up the great sea.  And, four great beasts came up out of the sea, different from one another.

 

As for me, Daniel, my spirit was troubled within me.  And, the visions of my head terrified me.   I approached one of the attendants to ask him the truth concerning all this.   

 

So, he said that he would disclose to me the interpretation of the matter: 

 

"As for these four great beasts: four kings shall arise out of the earth.  But the holy ones of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever — for ever and ever."

 

The Word of the Lord.

 

Psalm 149 Page 807, BCP

Cantate Domino

1

Hallelujah!
Sing to the LORD a new song; *
sing his praise in the congregation of the faithful.

2

Let Israel rejoice in his Maker; *
let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3

Let them praise his Name in the dance; *
let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.

4

For the LORD takes pleasure in his people *
and adorns the poor with victory.

5

Let the faithful rejoice in triumph; *
let them be joyful on their beds.

6

Let the praises of God be in their throat *
and a two-edged sword in their hand;

7

To wreak vengeance on the nations *
and punishment on the peoples;

8

To bind their kings in chains *
and their nobles with links of iron;

9

To inflict on them the judgment decreed; *
this is glory for all his faithful people.
Hallelujah!

 

 

A Reading from the Letter to the Ephesians.

 

In Christ, we have also obtained an inheritance, having been destined according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to his counsel and will; so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, might live for the praise of his glory. 

 

In him you also -- when you had heard the word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation, and had believed in him -- were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit.  This is the pledge of our inheritance toward redemption as God's own people to the praise of his glory.

 

I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints. And, for this reason I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers.   I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him so that -- with the eyes of your heart enlightened -- you may know what is the hope to which he has called you: What are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints; and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe; according to the working of his great power. 

 

God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far 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 age to come. 

 

And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

 

The Word of the Lord.

 

 

 

Hear the Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ According to Luke.

The Congregation responds:  Glory to you, O Lord.

 

Jesus looked up at his disciples and said: "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.   "Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled.  "Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.

 

"Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man.   Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets.  But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.  

 

"Woe to you who are full now, for you will be hungry.  Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn and weep.   "Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets.

 

"But I say to you that listen: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.   If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from anyone who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt.  Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes away your goods, do not ask for them again.   Do to others as you would have them do to you."

 

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

The Congregation responds:  Praise to you, O Christ.
