Almighty God, you have broken the tyranny of sin and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts whereby we call you Father: give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service,
that we and all creation may be brought to the glorious liberty of the children of God; 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.



Lord of heaven:

let the kingdom grow!


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, Upper Cam.


Post Communion

O God, whose beauty is beyond our imagining
and whose power we cannot comprehend: show us your glory as far as we can grasp it,
and shield us from knowing more than we can bear until we may look upon you without fear;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.  Amen.


First Reading – 1 Samuel 17 v4-11, 20-24, 32-41


4And there came out from the camp of the Philistines a champion named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.  He had a helmet of bronze on his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of bronze.  He had greaves of bronze on his legs and a javelin of bronze slung between his shoulders.  The shaft of his spear was like a weaver’s beam, and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron; and his shield-bearer went before him.  He stood and shouted to the ranks of Israel, “Why have you come out to draw up for battle?  Am I not a Philistine, and are you not servants of Saul?  Choose a man for yourselves, and let him come down to me.  If he is able to fight with me and kill me, then we will be your servants; but if I prevail against him and kill him, then you shall be our servants and serve us.”  10 And the Philistine said, “Today I defy the ranks of Israel!  Give me a man, that we may fight together.”  11 When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.  20 David rose early in the morning, left the sheep with a keeper, took the provisions, and went as Jesse had commanded him.  He came to the encampment as the army was going forth to the battle line, shouting the war cry.  21 Israel and the Philistines drew up for battle, army against army.  22 David left the things in charge of the keeper of the baggage, ran to the ranks, and went and greeted his brothers.  23 As he talked with them, the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, came up out of the ranks of the Philistines, and spoke the same words as before.  And David heard him.  24 All the Israelites, when they saw the man, fled from him and were very much afraid.  32 David said to Saul, “Let no one’s heart fail because of him; your servant will go and fight with this Philistine.”  33 Saul said to David, “You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him; for you are just a boy, and he has been a warrior from his youth.”  34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep sheep for his father; and whenever a lion or a bear came, and took a lamb from the flock, 35 I went after it and struck it down, rescuing the lamb from its mouth; and if it turned against me, I would catch it by the jaw, strike it down, and kill it.  36 Your servant has killed both lions and bears; and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, since he has defied the armies of the living God.”  37 David said, “The Lord, who saved me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, will save me from the hand of this Philistine.”  So Saul said to David, “Go, and may the Lord be with you!”

38 Saul clothed David with his armor; he put a bronze helmet on his head and clothed him with a coat of mail.  39 David strapped Saul’s sword over the armor, and he tried in vain to walk, for he was not used to them.  Then David said to Saul, “I cannot walk with these; for I am not used to them.” So David removed them. 40 Then he took his staff in his hand, and chose five smooth stones from the wadi, and put them in his shepherd’s bag, in the pouch; his sling was in his hand, and he drew near to the Philistine. 41 The Philistine came on and drew near to David, with his shield-bearer in front of him.




Gospel Reading – Mark 4 v35-41


35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, ‘Let us go across to the other side.’ 36And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. 37A great gale arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. 38But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, ‘Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?’ 39He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Peace! Be still!’ Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. 40He said to them, ‘Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?’ 41And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, ‘Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?’

Jesus calls us over the tumult


Jesus calls us: o’er the tumult

of our life’s wild, restless sea;

day by day his sweet voice soundeth,

saying, ‘Christian, follow me.’


As of old Saint Andrew heard it

by the Galilean lake,

turned from home and toil and kindred,

leaving all for his dear sake.


Jesus calls us from the worship

of the vain world’s golden store,

from each idol that would keep us,

saying, ‘Christian, love me more.’


In our joys and in our sorrows,

days of toil and hours of ease,

still he calls, in cares and pleasures,

that we love him more than these.


Jesus call us: by thy mercies,

Saviour, make us hear thy call,

give our hearts to thine obedience,

serve and love thee best of all.





Jesus is Lord


Jesus is Lord!

Creation’s voice proclaims it,

for by his pow’r each tree and flow’r

was planned and made.

Jesus is Lord! The universe declares it;

sun, moon and stars in heaven cry:

Jesus is Lord!


Jesus is Lord! Jesus is Lord!

Praise him with alleluias

For Jesus is Lord!


Jesus is Lord!

Yet from his throne eternal

in flesh he came to die in pain

on Calv’ry’s tree.

Jesus is Lord! From him all life proceeding,

yet gave his life as ransom

thus setting us free.


Jesus is Lord!

O’er sin the mighty conqu’ror,

from death he rose and all his foes

shall own his name.

Jesus is Lord! God sends his Holy Spirit

to show by works of power

that Jesus is Lord.

And can it be

And can it be that I should gain

an int’rest in the Saviour’s blood?

Died he for me, who caused his pain?

For me, who him to death pursued?

Amazing love! How can it be

that thou, my God shouldst die for me?


Amazing love! How can it be

that thou, my God, shouldst die for me?


Tis myst’ry all! th’Immortal dies:

who can explore his strange design?

In vain the first-born seraph tries

to sound the depths of love divine!

Tis mercy all! Let earth adore,

let angel minds inquire no more.


He left his Father’s throne above

so free, so infinite his grace;

emptied himself of all but love,

and bled for Adam’s helpless race;

‘tis mercy all, immense and free;

for, O my God, it found out me.


Long my imprisoned spirit lay

fast bound in sin and nature’s night;

thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray,

I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;

my chains fell off, my heart was free;

I rose, went forth, and followed thee.


No condemnation now I dread;

Jesus, and all in him, is mine!

Alive in him, my living Head,

and closed in righteousness divine,

bold I approach the eternal throne,

and claim the crown, through Christ my own.
