CHRIST CHURCH SHOOTERS HILL
Sunday 10th November 2019
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 26 Alleluia, sing to Jesus
Almighty Father, whose will is to restore all things in your beloved Son, the King of all: govern the hearts and minds of those in authority, and bring the families of the nations, divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin, to be subject to his just and gentle rule; who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
First Reading Job 19: 23-27a
‘O that my words were written down! O that they were inscribed in a book! O that with an iron pen and with lead they were engraved on a rock for ever! For I know that my Redeemer lives, and that at the last he will stand upon the earth; and after my skin has been thus destroyed, then in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see on my side, and my eyes shall behold, and not another.
Second Reading 2 Thessalonians 2: 1-5, 13-17
As to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we beg you, brothers and sisters, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as though from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord is already here. Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come unless the rebellion comes first and the lawless one is revealed, the one destined for destruction. He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, declaring himself to be God. Do you not remember that I told you these things when I was still with you? But we must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through belief in the truth. For this purpose he called you through our proclamation of the good news, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by our letter. Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.
Gradual Hymn 55 Be thou my guardian and my guide
Gospel Luke 20: 27-38
Some Sadducees, those who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus, and asked him a question, ‘Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies, leaving a wife but no children, the man shall marry the widow and raise up children for his brother. Now there were seven brothers; the first married, and died childless; then the second and the third married her, and so in the same way all seven died childless. Finally the woman also died. In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had married her.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Those who belong to this age marry and are given in marriage; but those who are considered worthy of a place in that age and in the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage. Indeed they cannot die any more, because they are like angels and are children of God, being children of the resurrection. And the fact that the dead are raised Moses himself showed, in the story about the bush, where he speaks of the Lord as the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Now he is God not of the dead, but of the living; for to him all of them are alive.’
Offertory Hymn: 220 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
Communion Hymn 40 As we are gathered
380 O Lord my God
Post Communion Prayer
God of peace, whose Son Jesus Christ proclaimed the kingdom and restored the broken to wholeness of life: look with compassion on the anguish of the world, and by your healing power make whole both people and nations; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
Thanksgiving Hymn 142 Forth in the peace of Christ we go
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.
Both groups will meet on 18th November at 9.10am and 8pm respectively. No meetings in December. The groups will continue in the new year. Do let Mtr Ariadne know if you are interested in joining.
Enid has booked seats for us at the Bob Hope Theatre, Eltham for Snow White and the 7 Dwarves on 12th January 2020 at 2pm. Tickets cost £13 for adults; £10 for children & concessions. Please, let Enid or Mtr Ariadne know if you would like to buy tickets. We went to the Bib Hope Theatre for the first time, last year. It is less professional than Greenwich Theatre, but it was really good for children – especially slightly younger ones.
Good news! The Diocese have given us positive feedback about the proposals for our site. We expect the Diocese to give us formal approval soon. We are working with a very keen and pro-active architect/developer, who is anxious to start the project. We hope to be able to present more developed plans before too long.
A big thank you to all who helped with Working Party, yesterday morning!
St Nicholas Event
Our next Social Event is the St Nicolas Event on 7th December 2019, 3-6pm. There will be activities for children from 3-4.30pm, including a visit from St Nicholas, and a disco for children from 4.30-6pm. Tickets are £5 per child and a maximum of £8 per family. This includes all of the activities, but not the tombola or food and drink.
Hall on 12th December
The hall will be used as a polling station on December 12th from 6am – 10.30pm. Please note that there will be no general access for key holders on that day. Thank you.
