THIRD SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
Jesus receives the poverty of our resources and generously pours into us his riches of abundant new life. So let us open our hearts to God’s goodness.
THE COLLECT FOR THE THIRD 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

Through his Spirit, God sovereignly blesses believers with a rich diversity of spiritual gifts for the building up of the Christian community.
Gospel St. John 2:1-11
As Jesus changes water into wine at a wedding, his disciples respond to this miraculous sign of the Saviour’s glory by putting their faith in him.

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.
