                   THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

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

 

            September 17th 2017– 14th Sunday After Trinity – (Proper 19)

                                       A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 

 Introduction to worship

When we turn our faces towards God and call upon his mercy our sins are forgiven. In God’s presence, as we share our worship, we become reconciled to each other and to the one who made us in love.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE FOURTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

Almighty God, whose only Son has opened for us

a new and living way into your presence:

Give us pure hearts and steadfast wills

to worship you in spirit and in 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 – Lectionary Pages 306/308

First Reading                                     Genesis 50:15-21

God knows when others try to harm us. But if we can forgive them, then God can turn a sorrowful situation into good – for us and for them

 

Second Reading                                Romans 14:1-12

Paul deals here with practical aspects of the Christian life. Here he appeals for Christians to bear with their brothers and sisters who have weaker consciences.

 

Gospel                                                  St. Matthew 18:21-35

Jesus has been teaching his disciples about how to deal with Christians who sin against them. Peter wants to know how often he should forgive such people.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord God, the source of truth and love,

keep us faithful to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship,

united in prayer and the breaking of bread,

and one in joy and simplicity of heart,

in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

DIOCESCAN ROADSHOW FOR THE DEANERY OF PYDAR –‘ Responding to God’s Grace’. Our roadshow this year is aimed at those who care about the future of the Church in Cornwall and see themselves as active disciples, seeking to contribute to the life of the church and to the discovery of God’s Kingdom.

Being a follower of Jesus is about responding to what God has already given us in terms of his unconditional love, his forgiveness, his involvement in our lives and his overwhelming generosity.  In this year’s roadshow, we will look afresh at what God’s grave involves, and explore five practical areas in which our responses can be grounded.

The roadshow takes place on Tuesday, 31st October at St. Erme Community Centre, Cattle Field, Trispen, Truro.

Please do come and join us, and encourage others in your parishes to come too.

 

WE NEED YOU TO JOIN OUR TEAM – We must keep the bells ringing in Padstow and to do that we need more ringers.  We will be starting a teaching course soon,

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW,

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

 

            September 3rd 2017– 12th Sunday After Trinity – (Proper 17)

                  A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 

 Introduction to worship

Today our Lord reminds us of the potential costs of discipleship. With our faith and his power we can fulfil any vocation to which he calls us.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE TWELTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

Almighty and everlasting God,

you are always more ready to hear than we to pray

and to give more than either we desire or deserve:

Pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy,

forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid

and giving us those good things which we are not worthy to ask

but through the merits and mediation of 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 (Lectionary Page 295/296)

First Reading                                   Jeremiah 15:15-21

When we agree to serve the Lord according to his law then he becomes our rescuer and people turn to us because they hear God’s voice speaking through us.

 

Second Reading                                Romans 12:9-21

True disciples must try to purify their lives, placing all their faith in God to help them fulfil the requirements of Jesus’ teaching. It is not easy, but it is righteous living which overcomes evil.

 

Gospel                                               St. Matthew 16:21-28

Disciples of Jesus must prepare themselves to live a different kind of life, in which the world’s values are turned upside down. Wealth and ease are sacrificed for the greater joy of service and eternal life.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

God of all mercy, in this Eucharist you have set aside our sins and given us your healing: Grant that we who are made whole in Christ may bring that healing to this broken world, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Creationtide ServiceEach September is designated by the Churches as ‘Creationtide’, or ‘A Season for Creation’, which finishes, most appropriately, on the day when we remember St Francis of Assisi, October 4th. Just before he left Bishop Tim sent a letter to all parishes encouraging us to consider how we are stewards of God’s creation, and expressing a wish that the church should take ‘a strong lead in climate change and resilience’.

A special service for the season of Creationtide will be held in St. Petroc’s on Sunday 17th. September at 3.30pm. This will be Celtic style worship giving thanks for God’s creation, but also aiming to raise questions about our Christian response to today’s environmental issues. There will be stations around the church for individual pondering and prayer, activities for children, and time to chat over tea and cake after the service.

For more information please talk to Fiona Giorla (532956)

            August 27th 2017– 11th Sunday After Trinity – (Proper 16)

            A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 

 Introduction to worship

Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” In this Eucharist we renew our recognition of Jesus as the risen Lord, and our commitment to follow him.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE ELEVENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

O God, you declare your almighty power

most chiefly in showing mercy and pity:

mercifully grant to us such a measure of your grace,

that we, running the way of your commandments,

may receive your gracious promises,

and be made partakers of your heavenly treasure;

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 (Lectionary Page 289/290)

First Reading                                     Isaiah 51:1-6

We have two distinct messages. First is peace and restoration: “the Lord will comfort Zion”. The Second is of judgement: “the heavens will vanish like smoke”.

 

Second Reading:                              Romans 12:1-8

Paul exhorts members of the church at Rome to live peaceably with one another, and to recognise one another’s gifts.

 

Gospel:                                                St. Matthew 16:13-20

Jesus confronts his disciples with two questions which are crucial to their understanding of the meaning and purpose of his ministry. Jesus’ future and theirs will depend upon the answers they give.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord of all mercy, we your faithful people have celebrated that one true sacrifice which takes away our sins and brings pardon and peace:

By our communion keep us firm on the foundation of the gospel

and preserve us from all sin; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

THANK YOU – I would like to say a big THANK YOU for a truly wonderful welcome that I received when I came to St. Petroc’s to celebrate and preach. For me it was a great privilege to come back to my home parish and to have an opportunity to say thank you.  I have been truly blessed with your friendship, prayers, words of encouragement and support over the past six years as I trained and then at my two ordinations of Deacon and Priest.  Thank you all.  God Bless.  Revd. Kirsten.

‘Thank you Kirsten for a wonderful service’.  Good luck in your future ministry.

“Weekly News” for

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW,

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

  August 13th 2017– 9th Sunday After Trinity – (Proper 14)

 A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 

 Introduction to worship

Let us come today to worship our heavenly Father who, in the midst of our weakness, brings us his strength and power.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE NINTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

Almighty God, who sent your Holy Spirit

to be the life and light of your church:  Open our hearts to the riches of your grace, that we may bring forth the fruit of thy Spirit

in love and joy and peace;

through 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 Lectionary Readings (Page 279/281)

Old Testament Reading                              1 Kings 19: 9-18

Elijah has just demonstrated the power of God but now faces the wrath of Jezebel, who threatens his life. He flees to Mount Horeb where he encounters God.

 

New Testament Reading                            Romans 10: 5-15

Paul deals with the position of the Jews now that the new covenant in Christ has come. Here he asserts that faith in Christ brings salvation.

 

Gospel Reading                                             St. Matthew 14:  22-33

Having just fed the five thousand, Jesus sends them home and instructs his disciples to set off across the lake without him, as he goes to pray. In the early hours of the morning, the disciples are shocked by a staggering sight approaching them on the water.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Holy Father, who gathered us here around the table of your Son

to share this meal with the whole household of God: 

In that new world where you reveal the fullness of your peace,

gather people of every race and language to share the eternal banquet of

Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

             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

THANK YOU EVERYONEThe 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.

Best wishes,

Tim Bishop and Sue Norfolk (Co-ordinators)

THE COLLECT FOR THE SEVENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things:

Graft in our hearts the love of your name,

increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness,

and of your great mercy keep us in the same;

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 (Lectionary Page 268/69)

First Reading                                     1 Kings 3:5-12

Solomon prays to God for wisdom, that he may better serve others. Later, Jewish tradition perceived wisdom as a person of God.

God has chosen us from the beginning to share his glory forever and patiently waits for us to turn to him.

 

Gospel                                                  St. Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52

God’s kingdom, and all its treasures, is waiting to be found by those who can recognise its worth.

               

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord God, whose Son is the true vine and the source of life,

ever giving himself that the world may live:

May we so receive within ourselves the power of his death and passion

that, in his saving cup, we may share his glory and be made perfect in his love; for he is alive and reigns, now and for ever.  Amen
