God of truth, help us to keep your law of love
and to walk in ways of wisdom, that we may find true life in Jesus Christ your Son.  Amen.



Lord of love:

let only your will be done.


In your prayers this week could you pray for our five overseas partner Dioceses especially today the Diocese of El Camino Real and for Churches Together, St. George’s.


Post Communion

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.


Gospel Reading – Luke 10 v1-11


The Message - Carry nothing but hope 


1-2 Later the Master selected seventy and sent them ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he intended to go. He gave them this charge:  “What a huge harvest! And how few the harvest hands. So on your knees; ask the God of the Harvest to send harvest hands.  3 “On your way! But be careful—this is hazardous work. You’re like lambs in a wolf pack.  4 “Travel light. Comb and toothbrush and no extra luggage.  “Don’t loiter and make small talk with everyone you meet along the way.

5-6 “When you enter a home, greet the family, ‘Peace.’ If your greeting is received, then it’s a good place to stay. But if it’s not received, take it back and get out. Don’t impose yourself.

7 “Stay at one home, taking your meals there, for a worker deserves three square meals. Don’t move from house to house, looking for the best cook in town.  8-9 “When you enter a town and are received, eat what they set before you, heal anyone who is sick, and tell them, ‘God’s kingdom is right on your doorstep!’  10-12 “When you enter a town and are not received, go out in the street and say, ‘The only thing we got from you is the dirt on our feet, and we’re giving it back. Did you have any idea that God’s kingdom was right on your doorstep?’

Hear the call of the Kingdom


Hear the call of the kingdom

Lift your eyes to the King

Let His song rise within you

As a fragrant offering

Of how God rich in mercy

Came in Christ to redeem

All who trust in His unfailing grace


King of Heaven we will answer the call

We will follow bringing hope to the world

Filled with passion, filled with power to proclaim

Salvation in Jesus’ name


Hear the call of the Kingdom

To be children of light

With the mercy of heaven

The humility of Christ

Walking justly before Him

Loving all that is right

That the life of Christ may shine through us




Hear the call of the Kingdom

To reach out to the lost

With the Father’s compassion

In the wonder of the cross

Bringing peace and forgiveness

And a hope yet to come

Let the nations put their trust in Him
