Introduction and Call to Worship
In our Eucharist let us open our hearts afresh to God’s Spirit. As we take in gifts of bread and wine, may the gift of Jesus’ Spirit bring us to new birth. As we pray for the world, may our eyes be open to see the weave of the maker.
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
First Reading Isaiah 6:1-8
Isaiah’s first courageous act was believing that he really saw the Lord; his second act was responding to the commission. From there he would never look back.
Second Reading Romans 8:12-17
The life of faith is not for the faint-hearted. Paul warns against falling back into fear. The antidote is summoning the boldness to believe: “Abba! Father!”
Gospel John 3:1-17
Head knowledge takes us a long way, but faith is mandatory for understanding heavenly things. The fullness of Jesus’ divine nature can only be received by faith, yet the Trinity makes rational sense of the interrelatedness of all creation.
Introduction to the Peace.
Jesus himself has revealed the Holy Trinity from whom all things unfold as one. The peace of the Lord…
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
For wholeness Christ sends you, may you be God’s servants in joining heaven to earth. And the blessing of God almighty…

Age Support Almanzora.
This is a charity based in Albox who support with emotional and practical help, in our aging community. They have a charity shop in Albox which also acts as their welfare centre. They are desperate for more volunteers both for the shop and the welfare sides of their charity. If any members of our church can help either in the shop or with welfare work please contact Alwyn at Mojacar and he will put you in touch with them.
Thoughts for this Week.
There will not be time to get ready, so be ready to greet God. Do not be left thinking I have so many things I need to say and do, say them and do them now!
A Prayer for this week.
Dear Lord, give me the strength to face all the challenges that come my way. Help me make your son Jesus the centre of my life, and your Holy Spirit be with me all the days of my life. Amen.
