Collect

Almighty God, give us reverence for all creation
and respect for every person, that we may

mirror your likeness in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

Intercessions

Wise and holy God:

we are your children.

 

In your prayers this week could you pray for our five overseas partner Dioceses especially today the Diocese of Karnataka Central and for Churches Together, St. Bartholomew’s Nympsfield.

 

Post Communion

God our creator, by your gift the tree of life was set at the heart of the earthly paradise, and the bread of life at the heart of your Church: may we who have been nourished at your table on earth be transformed by the glory of the Saviour’s cross and enjoy the delights of eternity; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

7th February – Christingle Service

There will be a Christingle focus to the Zoom family communion.  Please bring a candle to the service and some matches.  If you would like to make a Christingle out of materials in your house eg it doesn’t have to be an orange it could be an apple.  You may also let your grandchildren know to attend

 

10th February – magazine notes please to Barbara or Gill.  Thank you.

 

Virtual Zoom Concert

March 2020 was the last time we were able to host a Music & Cake Concert in Coaley Church. Twelve months on there will be a virtual concert through the magic of zoom. Sadly no delicious tea & cake supplied but an exciting afternoon featuring four musicians, our very own Rachel Mapp, a harpist from London, a young clarinetist from Thornbury and an even  younger  singer from Kent.

So… Save the date: Sunday 7th March at 3pm.

Gospel Reading – John 1 v1-14

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  2He was in the beginning with God.  3All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being.  What has come into being 4in him was life, and the life was the light of all people.  5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.  6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  7He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.  8He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.  9The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.  10He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him.  11He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him.  12But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, 13who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God.  14And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.
