CHRIST CHURCH SHOOTERS HILL

Sunday 14th January 2018

Baptism of Christ, Year B

Welcome to Christ Church

Please, help us to create a prayerful atmosphere before the service. Thank you!

If you are new please fill in a sheet (blue basket @ door). We welcome children in church. We now have a children’s corner at the side of the church where they will find toys, books, colouring, activity sheets and a play mat for babies.  If they become noisy, it might be an idea to take them out until they settle.

 

Introit Hymn         401 On Jordan’s Bank

 

The Collect

Eternal Father, who at the baptism of Jesus revealed him to be your Son, anointing him with the Holy Spirit: grant to us, who are born again by water and the Spirit, that we may be faithful to our calling as your adopted children; 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                Genesis 1: 1-5

In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

 

Second Reading               Acts 19: 1-7

While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul passed through the inland regions and came to Ephesus, where he found some disciples. He said to them, ‘Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?’ They replied, ‘No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.’ Then he said, ‘Into what then were you baptized?’ They answered, ‘Into John’s baptism.’ Paul said, ‘John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, in Jesus.’ On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied – altogether there were about twelve of them.

 

Gradual Hymn   491 The race that long in darkness

 

Gospel                           Mark 1: 4-11

John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. He proclaimed, ‘The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.’ In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.’

 

Offertory Hymn           78 Christ is the world’s true light

 

Communion Hymn     395 Of the Father’s love begotten

454 Spirit of the Living God

 

Post Communion Prayer

Lord of all time and eternity, you opened the heavens and revealed yourself as Father in the baptism of Jesus your beloved Son: by the power of your Spirit complete the heavenly work of our rebirth through the waters of the new creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Thanksgiving Hymn    87 Colours of Day

 

 

Exploring Faith

We were unable to run an Exploring Faith Course in the autumn. We’re hoping that we may be luckier this year. If you would like to do the Exploring Faith Course, probably once a month on a Monday evening from 8-9pm, please, let Mtr Ariadne know.

 

 

Christingle Service

This year’s Christingle service will be at 11.30am on 28th January. We use Christingles (oranges with a candle and some sticks with sweets) to explain to children about the love of Jesus and how Jesus is the light of the world.

We will be making Christingles in the vicarage on Saturday 27th January from 10am. Please, do join us if you can spare a few minutes to help us make Christingles. Many thanks to Jan for the preparation that she does for the Christingles.

 

 

Calendars

Lesley is still selling calendars for 2018. They are £3 each. She will be selling them after church services. Enid will be selling them also on Wednesdays (Toddler Service).The calendars have church and school dates (term dates etc) on them and so are very useful as well as pretty to look at because of the children’s art work.
