                                       October 23rd 2016 – Last After Trinity


                   A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.



All Scripture is inspired by God, calling us and equipping us to serve our Lord Jesus Christ, whose life-giving love reveals the glory, wisdom and truth of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in our lives and in our world.


Blessed Lord, who caused all Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: 

Help us so to hear them, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

 READINGS FOR TODAY (Page 1092/1093)

First Reading                                     Isaiah 45.22-25

There is no power in the universe except the God of Israel.


Second Reading                              Romans 15.1-6

The scriptures are available to us so that we may find encouragement and hope as we learn from them.

 Gospel                                                  St. Luke 4.16-24

Jesus adopts Isaiah’s description of the prophet’s calling as a blueprint for his own ministry.


God of all grace, your Son Jesus Christ fed the hungry with the bread of his life and the word of his kingdom: 

Renew your people with your heavenly grace,

and in all our weakness sustain us by your true and living bread;

who is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen

 Psalm for today 119: 129-136

129 Your testimonies are wonderful; ¨ therefore my soul keeps them.

130 The opening of your word gives light; ¨ it gives understanding to the simple.

131 I open my mouth and draw in my breath, ¨ as I long for your commandments.

132 Turn to me and be gracious to me, ¨ as is your way with those who love your name.

133 Order my steps by your word, ¨ and let no wickedness have dominion over me.

134 Redeem me from earthly oppressors ¨ so that I may keep your commandments.

135 Show the light of your countenance upon your servant ¨ and teach me your statutes.

136 My eyes run down with streams of water, ¨ because the wicked do not keep your law.

BRASS CLEANING ROTA FOR PADSTOW                                                                         

The brass cleaning rota has worked extremely well in Padstow  for the past two years and thank you to all of you who help keep our brass shining throughout the year.  For next year could you please confirm that you are happy to carry on with the brass cleaning.  I am looking to replace Sheila and Marjorie who after a long time of shining are hanging up their dusters and stepping down.  Thank you both for all that you have done for St. Petroc’s.  So if you could spare some time next year to help then please contact me and let me know. 

Thank you.  Sue Norfolk  (01841) 532902.


Please take this “Weekly News” home with you for reference in the week.
