Introduction and Call to Worship

Through Christ, our heavenly Father calls us to repentance and to stand before God in honesty, with open hearts. In that spirit, let us come together in worship, praise and thanksgiving.


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

Introduction to the Peace.

We are alike in Christ’s call to holiness and peace, and he invites us to share that peace with all whom we meet. The peace of the Lord…

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


May God, who calls you to holiness, keep you strong in standing for what is right.

May Christ, who encourages you to seek the kingdom, show you the way of righteousness. May the Holy Spirit, whose gift is courage, fill you with fresh hope and resolve to live in the light of God.  And the blessing of God almighty…

Church Council. The PCC are looking to appoint an Environmental Officer. If anyone would like to take up this worthy role and help look at ways in which we can be a more environmentally aware church, please would they speak to any of your church reps, David Blake, (Llanos) Mick Coote (Mojacar) David Price (Aljambra) or your Church Wardens. We can then put their names forward. It should be an interesting and exciting new role for our church. –Pam Carter

Plain paper Fax machine. Liz Morgan has one, she is looking to rehome it.

Thoughts for this Week. Wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it. Right is right, even if no one is doing it. Before going to sleep every night forgive everyone and sleep with a content heart.

A Prayer for this week. Heavenly Father, Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life, Remove the have nots and the do nots that I have in me. Erase the will nots and the may nots that may find a home in me. Dear Lord, I ask you remove all the nots that hold me back, especially when I think I am not good enough to be your child. Amen.
