SUNDAY August 4th Seventh Sunday after Trinity

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 

INTENTION

We are those who have been raised with Christ into eternal life. So let us seek “the things that are above, where Christ is,” as we gather to worship him.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE SEVENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

 

Lord of all power and might,

the author and giver of all good things:
graft in our hearts the love of your name,
increase in us true religion,

nourish us with all goodness,
and of your great mercy keep us in the same;
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.  Amen

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

 

Lord God, whose Son is the true vine and the source of life,
ever giving himself that the world may live:
may we so receive within ourselves

the power of his death and passion
that, in his saving cup,

we may share his glory and be made perfect in his love;

for he is alive and reigns, now and for ever.

PADSTOW: MEMORIAL TO ROGER PENNA

Roger gave outstanding service to St Petroc’s for 53 years as organist and choir master. The PCC, in consultation with Roger’s family, has agreed that it would be good to have a practical memorial to his faithful contribution to our worship so it has been agreed to get a good quality music stand and put a plaque on it to his memory.

SUNDAY JULY 28th Sixth Sunday after Trinity

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 

INTENTION

Abraham pleaded with God for the lives of just people who did not deserve vengeance, hardly daring to do so. God granted his request because he listens to the desires of our hearts. So Jesus urges us to ask with confidence, knowing how much God loves us.

 

COLLECT FOR THE SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

 

Merciful God, you have prepared for those who love you
such good things as pass our understanding:
pour into our hearts such love toward you
that we, loving you in all things and above all things,
may obtain your promises,

which exceed all that we can desire;
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. Amen

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

 

God of our pilgrimage,

you have led us to the living water:
refresh and sustain us

as we go forward on our journey,
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

THE READINGS Proper 12  (Lectionary Page 998/1000)

First Reading                             Genesis 18:20-23

God can be challenged to account for himself, even by us. God wants a thorough-going relationship with us in which demands can be made on both sides.

 

Second Reading                     Colossians 2: 6-15

Christ is the basis of our life. He alone knows us, forgives us and heals us. We need no exterior signs, just the deeply held belief that he is our all in all.

 

Gospel                                    St. Luke 11:1-13

If friends respond to our cry for help, how much more so will our heavenly Father come to our aid and the Lord’s Prayer perfectly expresses all our needs.

We celebrate this holy Eucharist as neighbours together in Christ. We affirm our fellowship with each other, and bring to God the needs of our neighbours.

COLLECT FOR TRINITY 4

O God, the protector of all who trust in you,

without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:

increase and multiply upon us your mercy;

that with you as our ruler and guide

we may so pass through things temporal

that we lose not our hold on things eternal;

grant this, heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,

who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Eternal God, comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken,

you have fed us at the table of life and hope:

teach us the ways of gentleness and peace,

that all the world may acknowledge

the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Amen

Jesus sends out pairs of disciples to establish bases in the places he intends to visit. He gives them detailed instructions on how to carry out his mission.

Thank you from Fiona.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported me in my Ordination last Friday. It was lovely to see so many friendly faces in the Cathedral, and I know many who couldn’t be there were with me in prayer. I’m grateful too for the many words of support and for all the cards. It was a most amazing experience, made even more special by sharing it with so many of you. Thank you.

Confirmation & learning more about our faith

We are starting a group for children, and perhaps one for adults, to explore the Christian Faith with a view to confirmation.

The children’s group will begin in late July and has grown out of questions from the older children at the Padstow Friday Fun Club. Teaching and events have been planned leading up to being confirmed by Bishop Philip in Truro Cathedral on Saturday 19 October followed by first Holy Communion in the Parish Church. There are still spaces, if you are interested please speak to Fr Stephen or Andrea Curnow.

Thanks to all those in the Padstow congregation who have donated towards books for the children. 

New Director of Music at Padstow

Padstow parish is pleased to announce that Neil Shepherd has been appointed as its new Director of Music at St Petroc’s, in succession to Roger Penna who contributed so much over more than fifty years.

Neil is an outstanding musician and choir director who runs a number of choirs in Cornwall and was previously Director of Music at St Ives Parish Church. He also regularly works with Gareth Stubberfield, the Organist at St Merryn. Neil will be working with the deputy organist Jamie Constance, who has done so well in leading worship since Roger died, and will start on Sunday 14 July. Sunday choir practice at St Petroc’s will be at 9.45am from then onwards and visiting singers are welcome.

EVENTS

St Merryn Summer Coffee Mornings are held at St. Merryn Church Hall every Tuesday between 10.15am and 12.00. They will continue until the end of September.

Padstow – Come Rain or Shine

On 16th and 17th August between 10am and 3pm St Petroc’s is running free craft days for families in the Church Rooms. It’s part of Truro Diocese’s ‘Come Rain or Shine’ project. The idea is that churches across the diocese open for a couple of days in the summer to provide free activities for families (local and visitors alike), in case it’s pouring with rain or too hot to be on the beach. We’ll provide activities and drinks and snacks through the day. Please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested in coming along. If you would like to help out, we need people to help with the crafts, to make tea and coffee, and to greet people and generally be on hand to chat. If you’re free either day and can spare some time, please let Izzy know or sign up on the sheet at the back of the church. Likewise if you could bake a cake for us. We would like to offer people homemade cake with their tea or coffee.

SUNDAY JUNE 30th   Second Sunday after Trinity

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 INTENTION

The Lord calls us to newness of life in his name. So let us set aside our old concerns, and offer him our worship and willingness to follow where he leads.

 

COLLECT FOR TRINITY 2

Lord, you have taught us that all our doings without love are nothing worth:
send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts

that most excellent gift of love,
the true bond of peace and of all virtues,
without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER 

Loving Father,

we thank you for feeding us at the supper of your Son:
sustain us with your Spirit,
that we may serve you here on earth until our joy is complete in heaven,
and we share in the eternal banquet
with Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

READINGS (Proper 8 – Page 975/977 of Lectionary)

First Reading                         1 Kings 19:5-16,19-21

The Lord ministers to an exhausted Elijah and instructs him to anoint Elisha as his successor. Elisha responds with total commitment.

 Second Reading                     Galatians 5:1,13-25

Freed from the law’s demands, we are to use our freedom in Christ to live by the Spirit who grows Christ’s character in us.

Gospel                                    St. Luke 9:51-62

As he journeys to Jerusalem, Jesus faces hostility, misunderstanding, and the failure of would-be followers to count the cost of discipleship.

Fiona will also lead and preach at the Service of the Word at 11am on Sunday 21 July at St Petroc’s, Padstow.

BISHOP CHRIS GOLDSMITH OF ST GERMANS

We send our best wishes to Bishop Chris as he leaves our diocese to become Director of Ministry for the Church of England, “supporting the continuing renewal of ministry throughout the Church of England as the Church looks to increase the scale and diversity of those called to both lay and ordained ministries.”

 CONFIRMATION & LEARNING MORE ABOUT OUR FAITH

We are looking to start groups for children, and perhaps for adults, to explore the Christian Faith with a view to confirmation.

The children’s group will begin in late July and has grown out of questions from the older children at the Padstow Friday Fun Club. Teaching and events have been planned leading up to being confirmed by Bishop Philip in Truro Cathedral on Saturday 19 October followed by first Holy Communion in the Parish Church. There are still spaces, if you are interested please speak to Fr Stephen or Andrea Curnow.

Thanks to all those in the Padstow congregation who have donated towards books for the children.

NEW DIRECTOR OF MUSIC AT PADSTOW

Padstow parish is pleased to announce that Neil Shepherd has been appointed as its new Director of Music at St Petroc’s, in succession to Roger Penna who contributed so much over more than fifty years.

Neil is an outstanding musician and choir director who runs a number of choirs in Cornwall and was previously Director of Music at St Ives Parish Church. He also regularly works with Gareth Stubberfield, the Organist at St Merryn. Neil will be working with the deputy organist Jamie Constance, who has done so well in leading worship since Roger died, and will start on Sunday 14 July. Sunday choir practice at St Petroc’s will be at 9.45am from then onwards and visiting singers are welcome.
