INTRODUCTION

Jesus Christ brought new life and hope into the world, and called his disciples to receive it and to be his friends. Today pray we can worship and serve him personally.

 

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 90/91

Old Testament Reading                 Genesis 12:1-4a

God calls Abraham to make a new start in his life, through which God would bless the entire world.

 

Second Reading                                Romans 4:1-5, 13-17

Paul uses the example of Abraham to remind us that we are made right with God not by what we do but by what Christ has done for us.

 

Gospel                                                St. John 3:1-17

Jesus tells Nicodemus that he needs a new start to his spiritual life, and that only God’s Spirit can bring it.

 

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

We all give up things for Lent, so how about taking up the “Jars of Change Journey”   On display at the back of the church you will see a display raising awareness for WaterAid.  Please help give the gift of clean water by either making a donation or by filling a jar of change.  There will be a bucket for your donations in Padstow and Trevone every Sunday until Easter Sunday.  If you take up the “Jar of Change Journey” return your jar of change to either Sue Norfolk (Padstow) or Sue Hollingsworth (Trevone) on Easter Sunday.
