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

                                         January 22nd 2017 – THIRD SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

                                       A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

   INTRODUCTION

Jesus is the light of the world and his light will continue to shine forth in our lives when, with joy, we gather in his name to respond to the invitation he makes to each one of us to follow him.

THE COLLECT

Almighty God, whose Son revealed in signs and miracles the wonder of your saving presence  Renew your people with your heavenly grace, and in all our weakness sustain us by your mighty power; 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

 THE READINGS

Old Testament Reading                                Isaiah 9:1-4

The light of the Lord’s glory dawns on even the remotest parts of the Promised Land. He will free all his people from oppression.

 New Testament Reading                              1 Corinthians 1:10-18

Paul has heard that there are arguments going on within the church in Corinth. In order to stop this dangerous development he reminds his readers of their baptism — a sign of unity in Christ — of the power of God.

 Gospel                                                                  St. Matthew 4:12-23

Matthew ends the introduction to his Gospel. Before he records the Sermon on the Mount, he explains that Jesus’ ministry begins in Galilee, where the first disciples immediately accept the call to follow him.

 POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Almighty Father, whose Son our Saviour Jesus Christ is the light of the world:  May your people, illumined by your word and sacraments, shine with the radiance of his glory, that he may be known, worshipped, and obeyed to the ends of the earth; for he is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen

INTRODUCTION

Jesus said to those who were following him, “What are you looking for?” Then he invited them to come and see for themselves. In our worship today, let us explore what we are looking for as we approach to see Jesus for ourselves.

 THE COLLECT FOR THE SECOND SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

Almighty God, in Christ you make all things new:

Transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace, and in the renewal of our lives make known your heavenly glory;

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

 

THE READINGS   (Page 46/48)

First Reading                                                      Isaiah 49:1 7

Isaiah foresees a special servant of God, known and called by God even before he was born.

 

Second Reading                                                1 Corinthians 1:1 9

We have been called through Jesus Christ and are all enriched and strengthened through him.

 

Gospel                                                                 St. John 1:29 42

John the Baptist identifies Jesus as one filled with God’s Holy Spirit, and Jesus begins to call his disciples.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

God of glory, you nourish us with your Word who is the bread of life:

Fill us with your Holy Spirit that through us the light of your glory may shine in all the world.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 PSALM 40: 1-12

1 I waited patiently for the Lord; ¨ he inclined to me and heard my cry.

2 He brought me out of the roaring pit, out of the mire and clay; ¨ he set my feet upon a rock and made my footing sure.

3 He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; ¨ many shall see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.

4 Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, ¨ who does not turn to the proud that follow a lie.

5 Great are the wonders you have done, O Lord my God. How great your designs for us! ¨ There is none that can be compared with you.

6 If I were to proclaim them and tell of them ¨ they would be more than I am able to express.

7 Sacrifice and offering you do not desire ¨ but my ears you have opened;

8 Burnt offering and sacrifice for sin you have not required; ¨ then said I: ‘Lo, I come.

9 ‘In the scroll of the book it is written of me that I should do your will, O my God; ¨ I delight to do it: your law is within my heart.’

10 I have declared your righteousness in the great congregation; ¨ behold, I did not restrain my lips, and that, O Lord, you know.

11 Your righteousness I have not hidden in my heart; I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; ¨ I have not concealed your loving-kindness and truth from the great congregation.

12 Do not withhold your compassion from me, O Lord; ¨ let your love and your faithfulness always preserve me.

                                                                                 

Advance notice – Important information from Archdeacon Audrey

Thy Kingdom Come

What is Thy Kingdom Come?

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury is inviting people around the world to join. He is calling on Christians to pray that people might know Jesus Christ during a focused time between Ascension and Pentecost from 25th May – 4th June 2017.

The hope is that:

  • people will commit to pray with God’s world-wide family – as a church, individually or as a family;
  • churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world;
  • people will be transformed through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

“In praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities.” Archbishop Justin Welby

How did it begin?

In May 2016 the Archbishops of Canterbury and York invited Christians from across the Church of England to join a wave of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost. This is traditionally a time when the church focuses on prayer, just as the first disciples gathered after they watched Jesus ascend into heaven. It says in Acts 1. 14: “They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus…

The response in May 2016 was astonishing as hundreds of thousands joined in from churches of many denominations and different traditions around the UK and across the world.

For 2017 the vision is even greater. The hope is to see at least 80 per cent of Church of England churches and cathedrals taking part as well as many other denominations and the churches of the world-wide Anglican Communion. Leaders from Churches Together in England, including Roman Catholic, Pentecostal, Baptist and Methodist churches, Free churches and Orthodox churches, to name but a few, have all signalled their support.

What next?

It’s not complicated – the Archbishop’s invitation is simply asking people to pray in whatever way they want, with whoever they want and wherever they can, that others might know Jesus Christ. Anyone can sign up on the website now and pledge to pray.

Resources:

Bespoke resources and information will be available from the end of January 2017 via the website http://www.thykingdomcome.global . This will include materials to download on prayer, liturgical resources, Novena booklets, a ‘Kingdom Kit’ helping families pray together, details of prayer events, and tips on organising local events. Everyone who signs up to ‘Pledge2Pray’ will receive regular email updates as well as inspiration and encouragement about prayer.

Social media:

The message will be going out via social media and in the months running up to May 25th we will be using the hashtags #Pledge2Pray and #ThyKingdomCome which we hope will spark a viral prayer response to the project.

Please think and pray about this major initiative – I will keep you posted and things develop through the year.

Fr. Chris

                                   A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

INTRODUCTION

 We come to worship the Father who has sent his only Son into the world for us and who has sent his Holy Spirit to draw alongside us, bringing us comfort and strength.

 THE COLLECT

Eternal Father, who at the baptism of Jesus revealed him to be your Son,

anointing him with the Holy Spirit:

Grant to us, who are born again by water and the Spirit,

that we may be faithful to our calling as your adopted children;

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.

 

Today’s Readings – (Page 43/44)

First Reading                                                      Isaiah 42:1 9

Here the Suffering Servant is introduced as one called by God to bring his justice to the world and to protect and help the vulnerable.

 

Second Reading                                                Acts 10:34 43

Peter expresses his new found conviction that salvation is available to all and is not limited to just the Jews.

 

Gospel Reading                                                St. Matthew 3:13 17

Jesus begins his public ministry, surprising John the Baptist by asking for baptism in the river Jordan.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord of all time and eternity,

you opened the heavens and revealed yourself as Father

in the baptism of Jesus your beloved Son:

By the power of your Spirit complete the heavenly work of our rebirth

through the waters of the new creation;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

PSALM 29

1 Ascribe to the Lord, you powers of heaven, ¨ ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

2 Ascribe to the Lord the honour due to his name; ¨ worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders; ¨ the Lord is upon the mighty waters.

4 The voice of the Lord is mighty in operation; ¨ the voice of the Lord is a glorious voice.

5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedar trees; ¨ the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon;

6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf ¨ and Sirion like a young wild ox.

7 The voice of the Lord splits the flash of lightning; the voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; ¨ the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh

8 The voice of the Lord makes the oak trees writhe and strips the forests bare; ¨ in his temple all cry, ‘Glory!’

9 The Lord sits enthroned above the water flood; ¨ the Lord sits enthroned as king for evermore.

10 The Lord shall give strength to his people; ¨ the Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.
