for the United Benefice of

 Padstow, St. Merryn and St. Issey with St. Petroc Minor

 SUNDAY 23rd DECEMBER – FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

INTRODUCTION

As we approach Christmas we become aware of the mystery of God’s action in our lives, often uncovered through our relationships with others.

THE COLLECT FOR THE FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT

God our redeemer, who prepared the Blessed Virgin Mary

to be the mother of your Son:

grant that, as she looked for his coming as our saviour,

so we may be ready to greet him when he comes again as our judge;

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

one God, now and for ever. Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 744/746)

First Reading                                        Micah 5:2-5a

Gifts from God often appear from unexpected sources: a small, if historic, town south of Jerusalem and an unknown, unnamed young girl. Mysteries are slowly uncovered over long years.

 

Second Reading                             Hebrews 10:5-10

God uncovers the new reality of the meaning of sacrifice. Built on the foundation of the Jewish Law, but transformed and perfected in Jesus.

 

Gospel                                                   Luke 1:39-45

The mystery of God’s incarnation begins with humble people in secrecy until the right moment occurs to uncover the momentous gift.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Heavenly Father, who chose the Blessed Virgin Mary to be the mother of the promised saviour:  fill us your servants with your grace,

that in all things we may embrace your holy will and with her rejoice in your salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

THE ADVENT RING CEREMONY

Said together: (As the first three candles are lit)

 

We have this Advent Ring to remind us of the Coming of Jesus, the Light of the World.

SING:            The holly and the ivy, are dancing in a ring,

Round the coloured Advent candles, and the shining Christmas King.

 

Said together: (as the fourth candle is lit)

 

All: We light this candle to remind us of Mother Mary

who told God she would obey.

SING:           And four for Mother Mary: “I cannot see the way,

But you promise me a baby, I believe you, I obey”.

DECEMBER 30TH 2018 – 1st SUNDAY OF CHRISTMAS

 

INTRODUCTION

Today is the day to stand aside from all that the world makes of Christmas. To look for a moment at the true miracle that Christmas is – the coming of the Son of God, God himself into the world to be our salvation.

 

THE COLLECT FOR 1st SUNDAY OF CHRISTMAS

Almighty God, who wonderfully created us in your own image
and yet more wonderfully restored us
through your Son Jesus Christ:
grant that, as he came to share in our humanity,
so we may share the life of his divinity;
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 762/764)

First Reading                                      1 Samuel 2: 18-20, 26

Samuel served the Lord in the temple.  His mother would bring him a new robe each year when she visited the temple with her husband.

 

Second Reading                                Colossians 3:12-17

In the space of six verses St. Paul characterises the very heart of the Christian Way.

 

Gospel                                                  St. Luke 2:41-52

Jesus knew where he his first duty should be – serving his father in the temple.  May we, like him, make our love for God our first priority in our lives.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Heavenly Father, whose blessed Son shared at Nazareth

the life of an earthly home:
help your Church to live as one family,
united in love and obedience,
and bring us all at last to our home in heaven;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

20TH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY (Proper 23)

SUNDAY OCTOBER 14TH 2018

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

INTRODUCTION

In our worship today, let us dare to open ourselves to acknowledge our wealth and our failure to ensure that all human beings share in it.

 

COLLECT FOR THE 20th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

God, the giver of life, whose Holy Spirit wells up within your Church:

by the Spirit’s gifts equip us to live the gospel of Christ

and make us eager to do your will,

that we may share with the whole creation the joys of eternal life;

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

 

READINGS FOR TODAY  – Proper 23 (Page 693/694)

First Reading                                  Amos 5: 6-7, 10-15

Amos calls for social justice, warning that only those who care for and support the disadvantaged in society will know the amazing life promised by God.

 

Second Reading                                Hebrews 4: 12-end

The writer of the letter to the Hebrews warns that the word of God will judge our hidden intentions, but that Jesus understands our human condition and is there for us.

 

Gospel                                                                  St. Mark 10: 17-31

Jesus asserts that those who are rich will find it almost impossible to be part of God’s kingdom. But he adds that, for God, all things are possible.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

God our Father, whose Son, the light unfailing, has come from heaven to deliver the world from the darkness of ignorance: let these holy mysteries open the eyes of our understanding that we may know the way of life, and walk in it without stumbling;  through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
