Physical services resumed on Easter Day. From next week there will be two morning services each Sunday. All services require booking. To book contact the parish administrator on the Monday before the service onwards - office@hughendenparishchurch.org.uk

Come and See


Many people are asking deep questions of faith. Jesus says, ‘Come and see, come and explore, let me help you to understand how all this fits together’. So why not walk with us, as we walk with Jesus.

Come and See is an invitation to everyone, for everyone. It’s for anyone who feels adrift in this pandemic, whether or not they know anything about the Christian faith.

As a response to the present situation, we have restarted our team to support anyone in our community who may need some friendly assistance. Should you need help with shopping or collection of medicines do let us know. If you would just like someone to talk with on the phone, discuss a worry or to pray with you, we have people who would love to help.

If you have problems where you need some advice or have struggled to get help elsewhere we will try and signpost you to the right assistance. We will be very happy to do this and look forward to hearing from you.

Please pass this information on to any local contacts.

READINGS


Below are Sunday's readings if you wish to continue with the lectionary readings:

Old Testament Reading:

Zephaniah 3: 14-20

The prophet of the 7th century BC sees a time when all will be joy and peace, for God will have saved his people, renewed them in his love, and will dwell in their midst.

New Testament Reading:

Acts 3: 12-19

Peter and John discovered that the power of the risen Christ was at work through them, to heal as he had done. Peter explained this miracle, and called the people to repent and believe in the Messiah whom the Jews had rejected.

Gospel Reading:

Luke 24: 36b-48

The appearances of the risen Jesus were always unexpected. This is Luke's end of the first Easter Day, and shows us Jesus still teaching his friends how the Scriptures were fulfilled in what has happened.

INTERCESSIONS


You are encouraged to especially remember the following people in your prayers at this time:

Bob, Cerys, Ann, Rex & Mary, Kay, Anne, Pauline, Julie, Rose, Ann, Charlotte, Jane, Ruth, Tony, Steve, and all who care for and about them.

Collect for the Third Sunday of Easter

Almighty Father,

who in your great mercy gladdened the disciples

with the sight of the risen Lord:

give us such knowledge of his presence with us,

that we may be strengthened and sustained by his risen life

and serve you continually in righteousness and truth;

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.
