CHRIST CHURCH SHOOTERS HILL

Sunday 23rd June 2019

First Sunday after Trinity, Year C

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 your child(ren) become(s) noisy, it might be an idea to take them out until they settle. Feel free to use the hall.

 

Introit Hymn                    10      All for Jesus

 

The Collect

O God, the strength of all those who put their trust in you, mercifully accept our prayers and, because through the weakness of our mortal nature we can do no good thing without you, grant us the help of your grace, that in the keeping of your commandments we may please you both in will and deed; 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 65: 1-9

The word of the Lord through the prophet: I was ready to be sought out by those who did not ask, to be found by those who did not seek me. I said, ‘Here I am, here I am’, to a nation that did not call on my name. I held out my hands all day long to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, following their own devices; a people who provoke me to my face continually, sacrificing in gardens and offering incense on bricks; who sit inside tombs, and spend the night in secret places; who eat swine’s flesh, with broth of abominable things in their vessels; who say, ‘Keep to yourself, do not come near me, for I am too holy for you.’ These are a smoke in my nostrils, a fire that burns all day long. See, it is written before me: I will not keep silent, but I will repay; I will indeed repay into their laps their iniquities and their ancestors’ iniquities together, says the LORD; because they offered incense on the mountains and reviled me on the hills, I will measure into their laps full payment for their actions. Thus says the LORD: As the wine is found in the cluster, and they say, ‘Do not destroy it, for there is a blessing in it’, so I will do for my servants’ sake, and not destroy them all. I will bring forth descendants from Jacob, and from Judah inheritors of my mountains; my chosen shall inherit it, and my servants shall settle there.

 

Second Reading               Galatians 3: 23-29

Before faith came, we were imprisoned and guarded under the law until faith would be revealed. Therefore the law was our disciplinarian until Christ came, so that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer subject to a disciplinarian, for in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ; There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise.

 

Gradual Hymn       188     Guide me, O Thou great redeemer

 

Gospel                             Luke 8: 26-39

Jesus and his disciples arrived at the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. As he stepped out on land, a man of the city who had demons met him. For a long time he had worn no clothes, and he did not live in a house but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he fell down before him and shouted at the top of his voice, ‘What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me’ – for Jesus had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For many times it had seized him; he was kept under guard and bound with chains and shackles, but he would break the bonds and be driven by the demon into the wilds.) Jesus then asked him, ‘What is your name?’ He said, ‘Legion’; for many demons had entered him. They begged him not to order them to go back into the abyss. Now there on the hillside a large herd of swine was feeding; and the demons begged Jesus to let them enter these. So he gave them permission. Then the demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned. When the swineherds saw what had happened, they ran off and told it in the city and in the country. Then people came out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid. Those who had seen it told them how the one who had been possessed by demons had been healed. Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them; for they were seized with great fear. So he got into the boat and returned. The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, ‘Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.’ So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him.

Post Communion Prayer

Eternal Father, we thank you for nourishing us with these heavenly gifts: may our communion strengthen us in faith, build us up in hope, and make us grow in love; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Thanksgiving Hymn         235 I, the Lord of sea and sky

 

 

 

Exploring Faith

The evening group will meet on 1st July at 8pm. The morning group will meet again in September.

In September, we will be starting new courses/books for both groups. Do let Mtr Ariadne know if you might be interested in joining either group. We meet monthly on Mondays.

 

 

Volunteering Opportunities

Lots of volunteering opportunities: we are looking for: Treasurer; USPG Champion; someone to put the notice sheets together; a Hall Manager; Social Media Manager; new chairperson/coordinator of the Communications Committee; new co-ordinator of the Toddler Play Group. Please, speak to Sue Peach, Ngozi Uduku or Mtr Ariadne if you might be able to help. Thank you!

 

 

Confirmation Service

We will have a special service on 7th July at 10am. During this service, several adults will be confirmed and a group of children will be Admitted to Communion. There will be refreshments after the service. Do, please, make every effort to support all of our candidates. Many thanks.

 

 

Precarious Financial Situation

Our financial situation is now becoming very serious indeed. For the last 7 or so years we have been living on our reserves. Those reserves have now been depleted. We are fast approaching a situation where we won’t be able to meet our bills anymore. Please, do everything you can to help us avoid this situation. Please, speak to Wendy Holloway, Catherine Champney or Sue Peach about ways in which you can help. Thank you! Many thanks to those who have increased their giving recently!

The ISFF will be on 20th July, 12-2.30pm. Please, do have a think about whether you could cook some food and if so what. Do speak to Olivia (christchurchcomms@gmail.com), Enid or Mtr Ariadne. Many thanks!
