St. Petroc’s Padstow and St Saviour’s Trevone
SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT
“The Weekly News” – February 21st 2016
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

INTRODUCTION AND CALL TO WORSHIP
By God’s presence and power, we have been made citizens of God’s heavenly Kingdom. Let us worship the living God, whose life amongst us moves us to hear and heed his words, and draws us closer to home in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

THE COLLECT
Almighty God, you show to those who are in error the light of your truth, that they may return to the way of righteousness: grant to all those who are admitted into the fellowship of Christ’s religion, that they may reject those things that are contrary to their profession, and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ, 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 820-822)
First Reading Genesis 15. 1-12, 17-18
The prophetic call to Abram is to his descendants and to their future homeland.

Second Reading Philippians 3: 17 – 4.1
We are to know ourselves as citizens not of earthly political kingdoms, but of the heavenly kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Gospel St. Luke 13. 31-35
Jesus Christ, Prophet and King, is present to us as the wings of a mother hen are home for her brood.

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER
Almighty God, you see that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves: keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Would you like to serve on the PCC?
Elected members of the PCC serve for three years and then cannot be re-elected for one year so that it gives as many as possible the chance to serve on the PCC. This year Janet Dawe, Peter Crawford and Lilian Martyn (Padstow) and Jane Saunders (Trevone) all retire and we thank them for their devoted service to the PCC for the past three years. There has also been a vacancy for Trevone this year so we have 3 vacancies for Padstow and 2 for Trevone.
There are application forms at the back for both churches for you to complete if you would like your name to go forward for election at the Annual Meeting. Please hand your completed forms to either Fr. Chris of your churchwardens.
Thanks again to all who have served on the PCC this year.
Fr. Chris
