November 20th 2016 – CHRIST THE KING
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.
The Lord is King; since the world began, his throne has been established. Let us worship our God and King.
Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: Keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet; who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. AMEN.
THE READINGS – Page 1086/1088
First Reading Jeremiah 23:1-6
God promises to replace leaders who have harmed his people with leaders who will provide for their needs. God will raise up for them a King from the house of David.
Second Reading Colossians 1:11-20
Paul encourages us to give thanks for our redemption and forgiveness of sins. Christ is the image of God and it is into his Kingdom that we have been brought.
Gospel St. Luke 23:33-43
Jesus is nailed to a cross along with two criminals. The inscription over him says “King of the Jews” and he is recognised as a king by one of the criminals. Today we see Christ the King suffering alongside us while also reassuring us and welcoming us into his Kingdom.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Stir up, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may by you be plenteously rewarded;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
1 God is our refuge and strength, ¨ a very present help in trouble;
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved, ¨ and though the mountains tremble in the heart of the sea;
3 Though the waters rage and swell, ¨ and though the mountains quake at the towering seas.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, ¨ the holy place of the dwelling of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; therefore shall she not be removed; ¨ God shall help her at the break of day.
6 The nations are in uproar and the kingdoms are shaken, ¨ but God utters his voice and the earth shall melt away.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us; ¨ the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
8 Come and behold the works of the Lord, ¨ what destruction he has wrought upon the earth.
9 He makes wars to cease in all the world; ¨ he shatters the bow and snaps the spear and burns the chariots in the fire.
10 ‘Be still, and know that I am God; ¨ I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth.’
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; ¨ the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
RESTORATION OF THE CHURCH TOWER
For the seven months October 2016 through to April 2017 parking is severely restricted as the contractors are using half the car park nearest to the church for their compound
PLEASE can you help us by only using this car park as a last resort as the limited spaces we have are needed for Church Rooms users and for those visiting the church.
Please do not block the access for the contractors as they will be receiving regular deliveries of materials, and we cannot be responsible for any damage to vehicles on the car park.
THANKS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
CRIB AND QUILT EXHIBITION There is a rota at the back of both churches asking for stewards to steward the church over the 4 day exhibition. If you can spare any time to help out this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Sue and Linda.
PADSTOW CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIR If you can spare some time on the day of the Craft Fair to help with refreshments, help with the cake stall or bake a cake, any offers of help would be greatly appreciated. Contact: Sue Norfolk 532902 or Linda Morey 532183.
