Dear friends,

We are pleased to say that St. Paul’s church is now open for worship every Sunday at 10.45am. We have followed all the Covid -19 safety regulations and over the past few weeks that we have been open this has worked well.
Anyone attending will be required to wear a mask throughout the service and follow social distancing rules please.

Many thanks
Wendy Atkinson (assistant priest)

25th October ~ Bible Sunday

The Collect:

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy scriptures to be written for our learning: Help us so to hear them, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

The Epistle is written in the 12th v. of the 3rd chapter of St. Paul’s Letter to the Colossians:

As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

This is the Word of the Lord  All: Thanks be to God

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. Matthew. All: Glory to You, O Lord

The sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see ‘the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven’ with power and great glory. And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things, you know that He is near, at the very gates. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

This is the Gospel of the Lord:   All: Praise to You, O Christ

Prayers 25th October

O Lord, we recognise your presence among us, and in this time of prayer we bring our needs to you. we ask for understanding of your teachings through the scriptures so that we may be equipped to do your work. We pray that your word will be made known throughout the world so that everyone can read it in their own language. We give thanks for the work of organisations such as the Bible Society and Wycliffe UK which aim to make the Bible more accessible across the globe, and the Bible Reading Fellowship which encourages us all to read the Bible regularly. Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer

We give our thanks and praise for the world we live in, and for the wonders of creation as we see the changing colours of autumn and the continuing new growth in our gardens and fields after the hot summer months. We remember all those who suffer lack of food when climate changes mean there is insufficient rain for crops to grow. Let us continue the spirit of harvest – sharing and remembering those in our area who rely on food banks. Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer

We pray for our Bishops and Archdeacons and for all our clergy and give thanks that we can worship you freely. We pray for all those who live in the holy land in the places associated with the life of Jesus. We join with others as we pray for Palestinian Christians. We bring before you the millions across the world who are suffering and in need of healthcare, and severe malnutrition. We pray for an end to the persecution and terrorism that so many live with every day. So we pray for peace and unity between all those of different faiths throughout the world.
Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer

We pray for the sick in the parish and others know to each of us.
Be present to them through the support of families and friends and in the care of doctors and nurses, and fill them with the warmth of your love now and always. Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer

We remember that you Lord, walk beside us, You live inside us and You watch over us. May your grace lead us to live lives worthy of you and your son.

Merciful Father: Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
