ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR
August 6th 2017– TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.
Introduction to worship
We are called to open our hearts and lives to that transforming power so that we may shine as lights in the world to the glory of God the Father.
THE COLLECT FOR THE TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD
Father in heaven, whose Son Jesus Christ was wonderfully transfigured
before chosen witnesses upon the holy mountain,
and spoke of the exodus he would accomplish at Jerusalem:
Give us strength so to hear his voice and bear our cross
that in the world to come we may see him as he is;
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
THE READINGS (page 1169/1171)
Old Testament Reading Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14
The prophet has a vision of the throne of God and the glorious Son of Man being presented with all power and authority.
New Testament Reading 2 Peter 1:16-19
Peter recalls his presence at the Transfiguration of the Lord and calls on his hearers to trust the prophetic word.
Gospel St. Luke 9: 28-36
Christ is transfigured into radiant glory alongside Moses and Elijah; the two Old Testament figures who were also transformed by God’s glory.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Holy God, we see your glory in the face of Jesus Christ:
may we who are partakers at his table
reflect his life in word and deed,
that all the world may know his power to change and save.
This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

GIFT AID –A BIG BIG, thank you to Mary Crossley our Gift-Aid Officer, who has for 2016 claimed back an incredible £9811.42 in gift aid, using our gift aid envelope scheme, from the taxman. We would like to thank Mary for all her years of dedication not only as the Parish Gift Aid Officer, but also as organist. Sadly, Mary is leaving us and going to live in Yorkshire. Thank you so much Mary for all that you have done for the Parish. We will miss you. God Bless.
THANK YOU EVERYONE –The Garden Party at Prideaux Place on Saturday 5th August saw huge crowds of adults plus children come through the gates of Prideaux Place in time to enjoy the opening of the Garden Party at 12.30 p.m. This year opened by Donna Birrell from BBC Radio Cornwall.
It was lovely to see so many families enjoying a relaxed and fun filled afternoon in the beautiful Prideaux Place gardens, taking time to browse the many stalls, enjoying the BBQ, cream teas, crepes, cakes and many other attractions.
We would like to thank everyone for all their help and support in making the Garden Party such a success. So many people gave their time, energy, money, transport, ideas and musical talent to make the day so successful and, on behalf of St. Petroc’s, we are so very grateful to you all for your support.
Special thanks, once again, to Mr and Mrs Prideaux-Brune and all their staff for their kind and generous hospitality in allowing us the use of the grounds as a wonderful location for the Garden Party.
