Introduction and Call to Worship
Christ calls us to a new life, one that brings down the proud and raises up the lowly. In worship we come to him as equals and are sent out to share his love equally among all creation.
Lord of heaven and earth, as Jesus taught his disciples to be persistent in prayer, give us patience and courage never to loose hope, but always bring our prayers before you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
He is Lord, he is risen from the dead and he is Lord,
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty
O God our help in ages past, and hope for years to come,
Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me,
Jesus stand among us at the meeting of our lives,
First Reading Jeremiah 1:4-10
God offers reassurance to the fledgling prophet, promising to inspire him and stand by him in the task ahead.
Second Reading Hebrews 12:18-end
Christianity is not a faith of fear, but of wondrous glory, graced by a Saviour who shakes our priorities, encouraging us to focus on God’s truth.
Gospel Luke 13:10-17
By healing a woman’s physical ailments Jesus restores her dignity, underscoring his argument with the authorities, that compassion has priority over rules.
Introduction to the Peace.
God’s peace is like a flowing spring, whose waters never fail. May we share those waters with all who thirst for peace. The peace of the Lord
Post Communion Prayer.
God of our pilgrimage, you have willed that the gate of mercy should stand open for those who trust in you: look upon us with your favour that we who follow the path of your will may never wander from the way of life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
May the God who knew each of us before we were formed in the womb
guide and sustain us, so that we might fulfil our consecrated destinies to be Christ’s hands, feet and eyes in the world. And the blessing of God almighty…
Our thoughts and prayers are with Peter Brace and his family after the death of Alison earlier this week.
Food Bank I know numbers attending church over the summer break fall, and this has a knock on effect on the food we collect for the Turre food bank. Last week we only had one tin of tomatoes to give, whilst the people in need of help continues. So a heart felt plea for more donations please, if you can not bring food could you please put some money in the pot, this can then be used by them to purchase perishable items like milk and baby food.-Alwyn Carter.
Llanos Community Choir. Practices will begin on Friday 30th August @ 2pm at Llanos church...we shall be working towards producing an anthem/introit to be performed at the Harvest Festival on 6th October. -Kath Clayton
Autumn Fair This year’s Autumn Fair will be on Saturday November 16th. Please remember the Jam and Pickle store as you bottle or turn your summer fruits into Jams. If you have any spare jam jars we would be grateful of them. Boxes have been placed outside Mojacar church for any Jars or any toiletries you wish to donate. We will be introducing a select clothes stall, obviously only quality items please. More information to follow later in the year. –Pam Carter.
Prayer for the week Lord Jesus, Please give me the strength to endure the situation I find myself in. Let me find the blessings and the lessons that I come across. Please give me the endurance to continue so that I can walk in your path of peace and love. Amen
Thoughts for this week. Do you ever feel your life is incomplete, do you feel there is a calling for something more. Do not ignore it, maybe you are being divinely guided to do towards a task God wants of
you. So pray for guidance and see where he takes
