Collect 21 
1984 Prayer Book
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who at the baptism of Christ our Lord in Jordan didst declare him to be thy beloved Son: grant that we who have been baptised into him may always confess him as Lord and Saviour, who now liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end.

Contemporary
Almighty God,
in Christ you make all things new:
transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace,
and in the renewal of our lives
make known your heavenly glory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion Prayer 22
God of glory, you nourish us with your Word
who is the bread of life:
fill us with your Holy Spirit
that through us the light of your glory
may shine in all the world.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Isaiah 62. 1-5
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her vindication shines out like the dawn, and her salvation like a burning torch. The nations shall see your vindication, and all the kings your glory; and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give. You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. You shall no more be termed Forsaken, and your land shall no more be termed Desolate; but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her, and your land Married; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married. For as a young man marries a young woman, so shall your builder marry you, and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.

Psalm 36. 5-10
Biblical text
Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgements are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O Lord.
How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart!

Pointed Psalm
Your love, O Lord, reaches / to the / heavens :
and your / faithfulness / to the / clouds.
Your righteousness stands like the strong mountains,
your justice like the / great / deep :
you, Lord, shall / save both / man and / beast.
How precious is your loving / mercy, O / God! :
All mortal flesh shall take refuge
under the / shadow / of your / wings.
They shall be satisfied with the abundance / of your / house :
they shall drink from the / river of / your de/lights.
For with you is the / well of / life :
and in your / light shall / we see / light.
O continue your loving-kindness to / those who / know you :
and your righteousness to / those who are / true of / heart.

1 Corinthians 12. 1-11
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, you were enticed and led astray to idols that could not speak. Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says ‘Let Jesus be cursed!’ and no one can say ‘Jesus is Lord’ except by the Holy Spirit.
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit,to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses.

John 2. 1-11
On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’And Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet come.’His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’Now standing there were six stone water-jars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons.Jesus said to them, ‘Fill the jars with water.’ And they filled them up to the brim.He said to them, ‘Now draw some out, and take it to the chief steward.’ So they took it.When the steward tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward called the bridegroomand said to him, ‘Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior wine after the guests have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.’Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
