 Introduction to worship

INTRODUCTION

God calls us to him to be healed and sends us out to heal others. As the Lord carries us in our distress, so we learn from him how to carry each other.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE DAY

O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:  Increase and multiply upon us your mercy;

that with you as our ruler and guide we may so pass through things temporal

that we lose not our hold on things eternal;

grant this, heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,

who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 

READINGS  (Proper 6 – Page 233/4 of Lectionary)

Old Testament Reading                             Exodus 19:2-8a

As they journey through the wilderness, God promises that if the Israelites obey him he will make them his most treasured possession. They promise, wholeheartedly, to do all that God says.

 

New Testament Reading                              Romans 5:1-8

The knowledge that Christ died for us while we were still helpless sinners should lead us to trust him in all things.

 

Gospel                                                                  St. Mathew 9: 35 – 10:8

Jesus gives his disciples the power to cast out evil spirits, to heal the sick freely amongst their own community, while spreading the Good News.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Eternal God, comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken,

you have fed us at the table of life and hope:

Teach us the ways of gentleness and peace,

that all the world may acknowledge

the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

 Introduction to worship

Today as we contemplate the mystery of the Triune God let us remember that the Trinity is an expression of God’s power at work in the world.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given us your servants grace,

by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity

and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:

keep us steadfast in this faith, that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;

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

 

READINGS  (Page 198/200 of Lectionary)             

First Reading                                     Isaiah 40:12-17, 27-end

God answers the doubts of his people with an assertion of his power to create and redeem.

 

Second Reading                                2 Corinthians 13:11-end

Paul urges the Corinthians to love in peace in the love of God the Holy Trinity.

 

Gospel                                                 St. Matthew 28:16-20

As the disciples say farewell to the earthly Jesus, they are given his authority and sent out to make disciples and to baptise them in the name of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

               

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Almighty and eternal God,

you have revealed yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

and live and reign in the perfect unity of love:

Hold us firm in this faith, that we may know you in all your ways

and evermore rejoice in your eternal glory,

who are three Persons yet one God, now and for ever.  Amen

                   THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW,

MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

June 4th 2017– DAY OF PENTECOST

                                       A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 

 Introduction to worship

God’s Spirit is among us, inspiring us and uniting us. As the Spirit transformed the first disciples into messengers of good news, we pray in this Eucharist that we too may be apostles of God’s love.

 

THE COLLECT

God, who as at this time taught the hearts of your faithful people

by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit:

grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgement in all things

and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort;

through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,

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 194/196)

First Reading                                                      1 Corinthians 12: 3b – 13

With the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the Spirit comes to us all giving us gifts of the Spirit.

 

Second Reading                                                Acts 2:1-21

The descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples inspired them to preach about the marvels of God in many different languages.

 

Gospel                                                                  St. John 20:19-23

The risen Christ appeared to the disciples filling them with joy. As the Father sent Christ, so he sends his disciples, giving the Holy Spirit to guide and sustain them.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Faithful God, who fulfilled the promises of Easter

by sending us your Holy Spirit and opening to every race and nation

the way of life eternal:

open our lips by your Spirit, that every tongue may tell of your glory;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW, ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

 May 28th 2017– SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

           A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

      

Introduction to worship

O God the King of Glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ

with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven:

We beseech you, leave us not comfortless,

but send your Holy Spirit to strengthen us and exalt us to the place

where our Saviour Christ is gone before,

who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS                                      (Padstow and Trevone Page 189/191)

First Reading                                                      Acts 1: 6-14

Jesus is taken into heaven. But the disciples remain together and united in prayer, awaiting the gift of the Holy Spirit.

 

Second Reading                                                1 Peter 4: 12-14; 5. 6-11

The pain of suffering for being Christian may not be different to the pain of other suffering, but Christ blesses with the gift of the Spirit those who risk all for him.

 

Gospel                                                                  St. John 17: 1-11

Jesus’ prayer gives us not only an insight into his relationship with the Father but also the certain knowledge of how we are saved through his relationship with us.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Eternal God, giver of love and power,

your Son Jesus Christ has sent us into all the world

to preach the gospel of his kingdom:

Confirm us in this mission,

and help us to live the good news we proclaim;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

“Weekly News” for

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW, ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

 May 21st 2017– SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

           A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.    

Introduction to worship

Jesus will soon return to the Father, but in today’s gospel he promises to send the Spirit of truth on the disciples.

 

THE COLLECT

God our redeemer, you have delivered us from the power of darkness

and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:

Grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,

so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy;

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                              (Padstow and TrevonePage 181/183)

First Reading                                                                   Acts 17: 22-31

Paul taught the Greeks with examples they understood, that Jesus was a human person but is also a God who is approachable and close at hand and beyond compare.

 

Second Reading                                                                1 Peter 3: 13-22

Our relationship with Christ affects all our contact with others, even our whole lives. We convey the truth of God by our courtesy and integrity rather than by any extravagant demonstration.

 

Gospel                                                                                St. John 14: 15-21

Although he is returning to the Father, Jesus will remain with his disciples through the life of the Holy Spirit – guiding, encouraging and strengthening then in the way of love.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

God our Father, whose Son Jesus Christ gives the water of eternal life:

May we thirst for you, the spring of life and source of goodness,

through him who is alive and reigns, now and for ever.   Amen.

CHURCH ROOMS –  The Church car park over the next few weeks are going to be extremely busy with the scaffolding going up around the rooms, demolition equipment, lorries bringing materials, as well as the ongoing tower renovations.  PLEASE, PLEASE, only use the car park if you really need to, we don’t want to see any cars getting damaged.  If you are using the car park for mid-week services, please park away from the church rooms area.  Any problems get in touch with your Churchwardens.  Thank you for your patience.  Sue & Linda.

                               April 9th PALM SUNDAY – HOLY WEEK BEGINS

        A warm welcome to visitors who join us today especially Bishop Tim at Padstow

    

INTRODUCTION

Christ comes into our own lives today, in humility. Like the crowds on the first Palm Sunday, we greet him with joy. We pray for his presence among us as we share in the events of his Passion during this Holy Week.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty and everlasting God,

who in your tender love towards the human race

sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ

to take upon him our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross:

grant that we may follow the example of his patience and humility,

and also be made partakers of his resurrection;

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 (P110/117)

 

First Reading                                      Isaiah 50.4-9a

The prophet writes of the suffering servant, who accepts pain and degradation in the knowledge that God is his helper, who stands with him against his adversaries.

 

THE READING OF THE PASSION

                                                            St Matthew 27.11-54                        

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ, you humbled yourself in taking the form of a servant,

and in obedience died on the cross for our salvation:

Give us the mind to follow you and to proclaim you as Lord and King,

to the glory of God the Father. 

Amen

BISHOP TIM

I was so thrilled when Bishop Tim was available to join us in Padstow today and we offer him a very warm welcome.  His visit, however, is tinged with sadness for all of us as it will be his last visit to Padstow before he leaves the diocese to take up his new appointment as Bishop at Lambeth and Bishop to the Forces.

 

In his letter to the clergy announcing his move he said:

“I am of course filled with mixed emotions as I share this news with you.  I am very sorry to be leaving the Diocese of Truro and want to thank all of you and through you all those who work and witness to their Christian faith in all the churches and communities right across the diocese.  It has been a tremendous privilege, for the last eight years, to be among you and to work with you in striving to understand what God wants of us and how we can continue to proclaim afresh the Christian faith in this generation.

Sian and I will be very sorry to leave this wonderful part of the world where we have made many friends and know we will of course want to keep those friendships alive in the future”.

 

THANK YOU Bishop Tim for EVERYTHING you have done in the diocese of Truro and for the good times we have shared with you in the parish of Padstow.  Thank you also for helping us all through the untimely deaths of Revd. Barry Kinsmen Canon Julia Wilkinson with your love, care and prayers on our behalf.

God’s speed – we’ll all miss you so much and we wish you and Sian every happiness in this new phase of your life.

Fr. Chris
