SUNDAY JUNE 2ND  Seventh Sunday of Easter &

Patronal Feast of St. Petroc

          A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 THE COLLECTS

O God the King of Glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven: we beseech you, leave us not comfortless, but send your Holy Spirit to strengthen us and exalt us to the place where our Saviour Christ is gone before, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 Almighty God, who sent your servant Petroc to build up your Church in Cornwall; grant that we may labour faithfully to build on the same foundation, even 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 PRAYERS

 Eternal God, giver of love and power, your Son Jesus Christ has sent us into all the world to preach the gospel of his kingdom: confirm us in this mission, and help us to live the good news we proclaim; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

 Merciful God, who gave such grace to your servant Petroc that he served you with singleness of heart and loved you above all things; help us whose communion with you has been renewed in this sacrament, to forsake all that holds us back from following Christ and to grow into his likeness from glory to glory; through Christ our Lord. Amen

THE READINGS FOR ST PETROC’S DAY

First Reading:  A reading from the Prophet Micah

Second Reading:  A reading from the First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians.  

Gospel :  A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke                                          

ST PETROC’S DAY

Today is the nearest Sunday to St Petroc’s Day, 4th June. St Petroc came from Wales to Cornwall in the sixth century, landing in the Camel Estuary. He preached the gospel here, founded a monastery in Padstow and another at Little Petherick and it is said that his cousin St Issey founded a nunnery nearby. He converted a local landowner called Constantine and sent him to live as a hermit near Trevose Head in St Merryn Parish. Petroc is one of the greatest of Cornish Saints and in our churches we stand in an unbroken line of communities of faith from his time – we remember his witness and those of our other saints with gratitude. May they be in inspiration to us.

JOINT BENEFICE SERVICES IN EASTERTIDE AND BEYOND

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 Introduction

This morning, with other disciples, we meet Jesus on the shore of the lake. A new day dawns bringing with it new hope, assurance of the resurrection and a call to serve our Lord by tending his flock.

 THE COLLECT

Almighty Father, who in your great mercy gladdened the disciples
with the sight of the risen Lord:
give us such knowledge of his presence with us,
that we may be strengthened and sustained by his risen life
and serve you continually in righteousness and truth;
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

 

Living God, your Son made himself known to his disciples
in the breaking of bread:
open the eyes of our faith, that we may see him in all his redeeming work; who is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen

Saul sets off to Damascus to continue his persecution of the followers of Jesus.  An encounter with the risen Lord himself convinces Saul that Jesus is, indeed, the Son of God calling him to a new life in his service.

 

Second Reading                  Revelation 5:11-14

Christ is portrayed as a Lamb who has suffered a sacrificial death.  He is entitled to receive worship with God because of the victory he has won through that death.

St Saviour’s, Trevone – Dedication Festival

The foundation stone of St Saviour’s was laid on the 30th April 1958 and the Church was Dedicated on 2nd May 1959 so this year is the 60th anniversary of the ceremony of Dedication. In a guide book published soon after this, the Vicar, the Revd B.B. Clarke described St Saviour’s as ‘in the centre of the village, in a delightfully picturesque valley going down to the sea’. The church is still at the heart of the village community.

It is relatively new but is named after a medieval chapel in the parish, sited near the Padstow war memorial at St Saviour’s Point, and it is made of ancient stone, some of which is from quarry at Cataclews Point which supplied the stone for the fonts at Padstow and St Merryn and the reredos and holy water stoup at St Issey. The Church is named after Jesus the Saviour and we can give thanks to him for all the good things we have received from him in it and for all the people, the ‘living stones’ we have met there.

THE COLLECT

 Almighty God,

to whose glory we celebrate the dedication of this house of prayer:

we praise you for the many blessings

you have given to those who worship you here:

and we pray that all who seek you in this place may find you,

and, being filled with the Holy Spirit,

may become a living temple acceptable to 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 PRAYER

 

Father in heaven,

whose Church on earth is a sign of your heavenly peace,

an image of the new and eternal Jerusalem:

grant to us in the days of our pilgrimage

that, fed with the living bread of heaven,

and united in the body of your Son,

we may be the temple of your presence,

the place of your glory on earth,

and a sign of your peace in the world;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 SUNDAY APRIL 28th Second Sunday of Easter

 

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 

Introduction

We believe but did not see the rising of the Lord. Alleluia! Let us praise the risen Lord Jesus Christ.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty Father, you have given your only Son to die for our sins
and to rise again for our justification:
grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness
that we may always serve you in pureness of living and truth;
through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord God our Father, through our Saviour Jesus Christ
you have assured your children of eternal life
and in baptism have made us one with him:
deliver us from the death of sin and raise us to new life in your love,
in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,

by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

TODAY’S READINGS – (Page 898/900)

First Reading                         Acts 5:27-32

The apostles find the strength to speak the gospel of the risen Lord, despite the dangers. The power of the Holy Spirit has turned them into people of action.

 

Second Reading                     Revelation 1:4-8

A message to the early church in Asia about the power of Christ and the fact that God is from the beginning until the end of time the Almighty one.

 

Gospel                                                St. John 20:19-31

Thomas the blunt one! Who could blame him for struggling to understand what others had told him. The idea that Jesus was alive was truly amazing and there would be more signs to come.

SUNDAY APRIL 21ST : EASTER SUNDAY

ALLELUIA! CHRIST IS RISEN!
A warm welcome to visitors with us this Easter Day

Introduction
Without this wonderful day our faith is founded on a hopeful dream. If it was not for the Resurrection, the life and ministry of Jesus would remain simple historical fact and a good and inspiring story rather than the source of life that it truly is.

THE COLLECT
Lord of all life and power, who through the mighty resurrection of your Son overcame the old order of sin and death to make all things new in him: grant that we, being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ, may reign with him in glory; to whom with you and the Holy Spirit be praise and honour, glory and might, now and in all eternity. Amen

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER
God of Life, who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son
to the death of the cross, and by his glorious resurrection
have delivered us from the power of our enemy: grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his risen life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

TODAY’S READINGS –

First Reading Acts 10: 34-43
Because there is no favouritism with God, all are acceptable, all who call can be forgiven, and all are witnesses to God’s life.
Gospel St. John 20: 1-18
Seeing that Jesus had risen led the disciples to believe. Learning more about God from Jesus, Mary Magdalene understood something new of Christ as Lord.
THANKS!
