Introduction and Call to Worship

As we share Christ’s baptism, so we share his life of service. May our worship today fill us with God’s Spirit and send us out to be the Gospel at work in the world.

 

Collect

Eternal Lord, our beginning and our end: bring with us the whole creation to your glory, hidden through past ages and made known in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


Hymns today.

       658         There  is a redeemer, Jesus, Gods own Son,

       374         Just as I am, with out one plea but that thy blood was shed for me,

       314         Immortal, invisible, God only wise,

       355         Jesus, name above all names, (sing through 3 times)

         33         And did those feet in ancient time walk upon England’s mountains green

 

Todays Readings

First Reading Isaiah 49:1-7

The work of God’s servant is ignited by God’s vision, which is not simply to restore Israel but to bring all nations into God’s light.

Second Reading 1 Corinthians 1:1-9

Paul calls the Corinthian Christians to holiness and reminds them it is only achievable through the grace of God in Christ.

Gospel John 1:29-42

John the Baptist sees the newly baptised Jesus fulfilling Isaiah’s servant vision as, by calling his first disciples, Jesus begins to draw Israel back to God.

God is faithful; by him we are all called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. The peace of the Lord…

 

Post Communion Prayer.

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 may shine in all the world. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

 

Blessing

May God the creator who called us into being draw us into the divine presence.
