CHRIST CHURCH SHOOTERS HILL

Sunday 29th September 2019

St Michael and All Angels

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             212 Holy, holy, holy

 

The Collect

Everlasting God, you have ordained and constituted the ministries of angels and mortals in a wonderful order: grant that as your holy angels always serve you in heaven, so, at your command, they may help and defend us on earth;
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          Rev. 12: 7-12

War broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they were defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world – he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, proclaiming,
‘Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God
and the authority of his Messiah, for the accuser of our comrades has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. But they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not cling to life even in the face of death. Rejoice then, you heavens and those who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you with great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!’

 

Second Reading               Hebrews 1: 5 - end

To which of the angels did God ever say, ‘You are my Son; today I have begotten you’? Or again, ‘I will be his Father, and he will be my Son’? And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says, ‘Let all God’s angels worship him.’ Of the angels he says, ‘He makes his angels winds,
and his servants flames of fire.’ But of the Son he says, ‘Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever, and the righteous sceptre is the sceptre of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.’ And, ‘In the beginning, Lord, you founded the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands; they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like clothing; like a cloak you will roll them up, and like clothing they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will never end.’ But to which of the angels has he ever said, ‘Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet’? Are not all angels spirits in the divine service, sent to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?

 

Gradual Hymn         564 Ye holy angels bright

 

Gospel                   John 1: 47 - end

When Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him, he said of him, ‘Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!’ Nathanael asked him, ‘Where did you come to know me?’ Jesus answered, ‘I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.’ Nathanael replied, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!’ Jesus answered, ‘Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.’ And he said to him, ‘Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.’

 

Offertory Hymn:              226 I cannot tell

Communion Hymn          63 Blest are the pure in heart

548 When I needed a neighbour

 

Post Communion Prayer

Lord of heaven, in this Eucharist you have brought us near to an innumerable company of angels and to the spirits of the saints made perfect: as in this food of our earthly pilgrimage we have shared their fellowship, so may we come to share their joy in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Thanksgiving Hymn   15 All I my hope

 

 

 

 

Keeping Christ Church Solvent

Thanks to all who, in the last 12 months have responded in some way to help balance the books. We have some new standing orders and some increased standing orders or planned giving envelopes. We still have a way to go! Yet to respond? It’s not too late.  If 50 people give an extra £1 a week - that’s an extra £3,250 (with gift aid). That’s a start.

Please, speak to Wendy Holloway, Catherine Champney or Sue Peach about ways in which you can help.

 

 

 

Exploring Faith

The next meeting of the morning group will be on 28th October at 9.10am. The next meeting of the evening group is on 30th September at 8pm. Do let Mtr Ariadne know if you are interested in joining.

Harvest

Our Harvest Festival is on 6th October. As usual, we are collecting items for Housing for Women. They are in desperate need of food items and toiletries. We will also be collecting money for USPG. There is a basket on the font for USPG donations. Many thanks.
