Introduction

Heaven’s door is open to us in this place that we may experience the power and glory of God.   Let us join with the voices of heaven and give worthy praise to the living and loving Trinity.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty God, you have created the heavens and the earth
and made us in your own image:
teach us to discern your hand in all your works
and your likeness in all your children;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who with you and the Holy Spirit

reigns supreme over all things, now and for ever.  Amen

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

God our creator, by your gift
the tree of life was set at the heart of the earthly paradise,
and the bread of life at the heart of your Church:
may we who have been nourished at your table on earth
be transformed by the glory of the Saviour’s cross

and enjoy the delights of eternity;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 803/806)

First Reading                     Genesis 2:4b-9, 15-25

Genesis means “beginnings” and here the writer presents a picture of God’s

Creating power that brings all things to life and creates a pattern for human relationships.

 

Second Reading                Revelation 4      

A door is opened to reveal God’s eternal kingdom for those who seek him. A picture of heaven is painted to reveal the beauty and wonder of all that is holy.

 

Gospel                                St. Luke 8:22-25

Jesus rebuked the wind and waves to bring calm as the Father had brought order to the chaos when time began. The disciples still have yet to recognise just who Jesus really is and why he has come.

THE COLLECT

Almighty God,
who alone can bring order
to the unruly wills and passions of sinful humanity:
give your people grace so to love what you command
and to desire what you promise,
that, among the many changes of this world,
our hearts may surely there be fixed

where true joys are to be found;
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

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Merciful Father,

who gave Jesus Christ to be for us the bread of life,

where he is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen

 A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

INTRODUCTION

Jesus called his first disciples. Today we hear of Jesus finding new ways to talk to people and to teach them, and we hear of his calling of those first disciples.  May we hear Jesus calling us.

THE COLLECT

O God, you know us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright:

grant to us such strength and protection as may support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations;

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 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER 

Go before us, Lord, in all we do with your most gracious favour, and guide us with your continual help,

that in all our works begun, continued and ended in you, we may glorify your holy name, and finally by your mercy receive everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen 

READINGS FOR TODAY  (Lectionary pages 794/796)

 

First Reading                         Isaiah 6: 1-8

Isaiah’s vision of the glory of God – where we get the ‘holy, holy, holy’ from.

 

Second Reading                    1 Corinthians 15: 1-11

Some Christians in Corinth had questioned the teachings of the resurrection of the dead. St. Paul argues that the Resurrection of Jesus Christ proves it.

  

Gospel                                    St. Luke 5: 1-11

The miraculous catch of fish leads to the call of Simon Peter. “From now on you will be catching people”. James, John and Simon all followed him.

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

 

INTRODUCTION

In accordance with what is written in the law of the Lord, Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord. As they brought Jesus to be dedicated for service, let us offer ourselves as living sacrifices for the worship of God.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty and ever-living God, clothed in majesty,
whose beloved Son was this day

presented in the Temple, in substance of our flesh:
grant that we may be presented to you with pure and clean hearts,
by 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

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord, you fulfilled the hope of Simeon and Anna,

who lived to welcome the Messiah:
may we, who have received these gifts beyond words,
prepare to meet Christ Jesus when he comes

to bring us to eternal life;

for he is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen

Jesus, come from God, became man, so that in suffering, in temptation, in dying and in rising, he might atone for our sins and free us to follow him into glory. He now is, where we will be.

 

Gospel                                                            St. Luke 2:22 – 40

  FOURTH SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

 

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

 

INTRODUCTION

Today Jesus proclaims that the words of the Prophets are fulfilled and good news is given to the poor; we are all one in the Body of Christ.

 

THE COLLECT

God our creator, who in the beginning

commanded the light to shine out of darkness:

we pray that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ

may dispel the darkness of ignorance and unbelief,

shine into the hearts of all your people,

and reveal the knowledge of your glory

in the face 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

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Generous Lord, in word and eucharist we have proclaimed the mystery of your love: help us so to live out our days

that we may be signs of your wonders in the world;

through Jesus Christ our Saviour.

 

THE READINGS   (Page 780/782)

First Reading                                             Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10

Ezra reads from the book of the law of Moses. He encourages the people to be confident and filled with joy.

 

Second Reading                                      1 Corinthians 12:12-31a

Paul writes about the nature of the Body of Christ. Through Baptism and the Eucharist we are all made parts of that body.

 

Gospel                                                          St. Luke 4:14-21

Jesus begins his public ministry, reading and teaching in the synagogue. He proclaims that the word of God on the scroll of the prophet Isaiah is being fulfilled that very day.

THIRD SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

 

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

 

INTRODUCTION

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

 

THE READINGS   (Page 778/779)

The prophet proclaims that the Lord’s glory will be revealed for all to see through the salvation and restoration of his people.

 

Second Reading                                1 Corinthians 12:1-11

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
