Welcome:

A warm welcome is offered to all attending the services in the churches of this Chaplaincy.

We offer a special welcome to visitors and newcomers and we hope the information on the back page will help you locate somebody to make you feel welcome and answer any questions you may have. Please join us in fellowship for a tea/coffee/soft drink after the service.

 

Introduction and Call to Worship

Christ is risen from the dead. He is here among us as we gather to worship. As we meet him in this place, let us rejoice that our own eternal destiny lies in the new heavens and new earth where sin and death are no more.

 

Collect

God of glory, by the raising of your Son you have broken the chains of death and hell; fill your Church with faith and hope; for a new day has dawned and the way to life stands open in our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Today’s Readings

First Reading Isaiah 65:17-end

The prophet sees a time when sin and death will be no more. Conflict will be a thing of the past, and we will care for the world around us.

Second Reading Acts 10:34-43

Peter testifies that Jesus’ resurrection is not just for the Jewish people. Forgiveness and healing is on offer to all who believe.

Gospel John 20:1-18

Mary Magdalene encounters Jesus in the garden. The risen Lord reveals himself to us in our despair.

 

Introduction to the Peace.

The first words of the risen Jesus to his disciples were, “Peace be with you,” and the Holy Spirit came upon them. The peace of the Lord…

 

Post Communion Prayer.

God of Life, who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by his glorious resurrection have delivered us from the power of our enemy: grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his risen life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

 

Blessing

May the power of God to draw life out of death inspire you to see the world in a new way this Easter.  May you know that Jesus, who defeated death, is close to you always. May the Holy Spirit lead you to love those who have been forgotten or neglected.  And the blessing of God almighty…

It is available to all in the Chaplaincy and beyond at no cost to you.  All you have to do is get a message to the Editor Sharon on sharonregan92@gmail.com  Sharon will be very please to email you each edition as it becomes available or point you in the right direction to obtain one of the few hard copies.  I know she would be delighted to hear from you so she can send El Peregrino flying your way and also receive items from you for publication. –Janetta Causton, Church Warden.

 

Thoughts for this week   Jesus Christ did not come into this world to make bad people good; He came into this world to make dead people live. Earth’s saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart, and remember it is better to have God approve, than the world applaud.

 

Prayer for the week.   Dear Lord, may the resurrection of your Son our saviour Jesus Christ be a constant reminder of His promise of eternal life. Amen
