Before the lock-down happened, we had recorded the saying of Compline we are asking that each evening at 8pm we light a candle in our window and pray for our nation together using the words of the Compline service - it takes just over 5 minutes. 

Click on the recordings below to listen to the service. The words of the service are also below for you to use.

The Lord almighty grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.

Amen.

 

Our help is in the name of the Lord

who made heaven and earth.

 

Most merciful God,

we confess to you,

before the whole company of heaven and one another,

that we have sinned in thought, word and deed

and in what we have failed to do.

Forgive us our sins,

heal us by your Spirit

and raise us to new life in Christ. Amen.

 

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

1    I lift up my eyes to the hills;  

from where is my help to come?

2    My help comes from the Lord,  

the maker of heaven and earth.

3    He will not suffer your foot to stumble;  

he who watches over you will not sleep.

4    Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel  

shall neither slumber nor sleep. 

5    The Lord himself watches over you;  

the Lord is your shade at your right hand,

6    So that the sun shall not strike you by day,  

neither the moon by night.

7    The Lord shall keep you from all evil;  

it is he who shall keep your soul.

8    The Lord shall keep watch over your going out

and your coming in,  

from this time forth for evermore.

Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

 

You, O Lord, are in the midst of us and we are called by your name; leave us not, O Lord our God.

Jeremiah 14.9

Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

For you have redeemed me, Lord God of truth.

I commend my spirit.

Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit.

Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

 

All  Save us, O Lord, while waking,

and guard us while sleeping,

that awake we may watch with Christ

and asleep may rest in peace.

 

1    Now, Lord, you let your servant go in peace:  

your word has been fulfilled.

2    My own eyes have seen the salvation  

which you have prepared in the sight of every people;

3    A light to reveal you to the nations  

and the glory of your people Israel.

All  Save us, O Lord, while waking,

and guard us while sleeping,

that awake we may watch with Christ

and asleep may rest in peace.

Silence may be kept.

Visit this place, O Lord, we pray,

and drive far from it the snares of the enemy;

may your holy angels dwell with us and guard us in peace,

and may your blessing be always upon us;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All  Amen.

 

In peace we will lie down and sleep;

for you alone, Lord, make us dwell in safety.

 

Abide with us, Lord Jesus,

for the night is at hand and the day is now past.

 

As the night watch looks for the morning,

so do we look for you, O Christ.

 

The Lord bless us and watch over us;

the Lord make his face shine upon us and be gracious to us;

the Lord look kindly on us and give us peace.

All  Amen.
