“Weekly News” for

 THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

 Sunday April 15th – 3rd SUNDAY OF EASTER

 

 A WARM WELCOME TO OUR VISITORS TODAY

Introduction and call to worship

“The Lord is risen! He is risen indeed!” We echo the cry of the disciples on Easter Day, yet at first the resurrection seemed incredible to them. So Jesus came, to open the scriptures, to feed them, and to give assurance. That is what he does for us today.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty Father, who in your great mercy gladdened the disciples
with the sight of the risen Lord:
Give us such knowledge of his presence with us,
that we may be strengthened and sustained by his risen life
and serve you continually in righteousness and truth;
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 FOR TODAY (Page 541/543)

First Reading                                         Acts 3.12-19

Jesus, who was crucified, is alive and is the promised Messiah. This forms the content of the first proclamations of the church, made by Peter after Pentecost.

 

Second Reading                                  I John 3 1-7

From his own experience, John is conscious of the overwhelming love of God. Our response to that same love for us, is that we should try to be pure, and do what is righteous.

 

Gospel                                                  St. Luke 24 36-48

On the first Easter Day, Jesus has been seen by Mary Magdalene, and by those on the road to Emmaus. Now in the evening he appears to the eleven disciples and their companions, and proves to them that he is alive.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Living God, your Son made himself known to his disciples
in the breaking of bread:  open the eyes of our faith, that we may see him in all his redeeming work; who is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen

HOME COMMUNIONS

ANNUAL GARDEN PARTY AT PRIDEAUX PLACE – This year’s Garden Party will take place on Saturday 18th August, by kind permission of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Prideaux-Brune.  This year now that we have finished the Church Tower and the new church rooms, we want to give the garden party a more community feel and would like local community groups/organizations to get involved to run a stall and raise funds for their own group/organization.  To get this year’s planning off the ground there will be a planning meeting on Saturday 21st April at 10.30 a.m. in the church rooms.  All are welcome to attend with your ideas, offers of help and please if you have contact with any group them please let them know.  If you can’t be there for the meeting but would like to offer help, then please contact either Tim Bishop or Sue Norfolk.

 

ADVANCED NOTICE – APCM FOR ST. ISSEY AND ST. PETROC MINOR

The APCM FOR 2018 will take place on Tuesday 24th April at 7.30 p.m. in the Osborne Room.  All are welcome to attend.

OPEN DAY OF THE NEWLY BUILT CHURCH ROOMS – It was so great to see so many people from the community of Padstow and the Mayor of Padstow come to look around our new church rooms.  It was very encouraging to hear all the positive comments about the building.  A building that we are delighted to have in our community.  If you want to make a booking for the hall, please contact our Administrator on 01841 532898 in office hours or email her at pmilbenefice1235@outlook.com

A BIG THANK YOU to Jenny Childs who after 25 years of managing the Church Rooms along with her late husband Ron is stepping down from the post of Hall Manager.  Thank you Jenny for all that you have down over these 25 years, it has been very much appreciated by us on the PCC and the hall users.

“Weekly News” for

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

 Sunday April 8th  – 2ND SUNDAY OF EASTER

 

     A WARM WELCOME TO OUR VISITORS TODAY

Introduction and call to worship

The risen Lord Jesus made himself known to his disciples, breathed his Holy Spirit on them and brought them the reassurance of his peace.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty Father, you have given your only Son to die for our sins
and to rise again for our justification:
Grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness
that we may always serve you in pureness of living and truth;
through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ 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 FOR TODAY (Page 538/539)

First Reading                                                   Acts 4: 32 – 35

This account of communal commitment by sharing of possessions and of Christian love, provides a challenge today as we seek to heed Christ’s commission to us.

 

Second Reading                                                1 John 1: 1 – 2:2

God is light and in him there is no darkness at all.

 

Gospel Reading                                                St. John 20:19-end

The risen Lord Jesus brings the disciples reassurance and his Holy Spirit, and commissions them in his service. Thomas’s ringing acclamation ‘My Lord and my God‘ – points us to our Easter faith.

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord God our Father, through our Saviour Jesus Christ
you have assured your children of eternal life
and in baptism have made us one with him:
Deliver us from the death of sin and raise us to new life in your love, in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.    Amen

A BIG BENEFICE THANK YOU –   A big thank you to everyone from across the Benefice who helped make the Easter services run so well and our churches look so lovely with the flowers and Easter gardens.  Everyone worked extremely hard in the run up to Easter Sunday, as this was our first Easter without Fr Chris, who used to do so much for the Benefice in preparation for this special time.  So whatever part you played in the preparation to Easter Sunday A VERY BIG THANK YOU INDEED.

 

JOHN STOCK – It is with great sadness that we received the news on Thursday from John’s daughter Jo, that John passed away very peacefully on Good Friday.  John was a Treasurer to the Parish of Padstow for many years, and was a lovely and caring gentleman, who loved his church at Trevone.  We pass on our condolences to Jo and all the family.  ‘May he rest in peace and rise in glory’.
