Online Sunday Service

Pentecost or “Whit” Sunday 31st May  (Page still under construction)

Welcome: Matthew Brailsford Vicar

(Skip if you’ve watched the video!)

Welcome to the All Saints’ North Ferriby virtual community on this Pentecost or Whit Sunday.

On this day, Christians in many parts of the world, remember and celebrate the wonderful reality that after Jesus had ascended to heaven to rule from God the Father’s right hand, He sent God the HS to all those who believe in Him.

Jesus has not left us on our own, but He has come to us in the person of the Holy Spirit. God, the Holy Spirit,  points to Jesus and does in and for us all that Jesus would do if He were still here on earth in His body. As Jesus said, it is better that He goes back to heaven, for then He can send the Holy Spirit to be with all His people, wherever they are in all the world, all the time. The Holy Spirit strengthens and equips us to serve Jesus and take His good news to the nations.

Next week. June 7th, Trinity Sunday,  we are planning to make our service more all age friendly – so do invite families with children to log on and join in too!

This morning, we have a video update from Rick & Alana Creighton, our Mission Partners with Crosslinks, working in Kagoro, Nigeria. They tell us how the global pandemic is affecting them and how we can pray for them & that country.

Adam Young our associate minister is going to be speaking later, on the account of that first day of Pentecost recorded in Acts chapter 2 ”When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language.

Song; O Breath of life, come sweeping through us

Confession;

Lord God,

We have sinned against you;

We have done evil in your sight.

We are sorry and repent.

Have mercy on us according to your love.

Wash away our wrongdoing and cleanse us from our sin.

Renew a right spirit within us

and restore us to the joy of your salvation,

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen                                                     (From Psalm 51)

 

May Almighty God who sent His Son into the world to save sinners, bring us pardon and peace now and forever. Amen

Also a big thank you to Lester and Jim and others who have produced a very special Ferriby version of Amazing Grace!

Bible Verse; We’re continuing our sermon series looking at the book of Acts and have reached Ch 16 where the good news goes, for the first time, into what we call Europe; ”On the Sabbath day we went outside the gate to the riverside, where we supposed there was a place of prayer, and we sat down and spoke to the women who had come together. One who heard us was a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple goods, who was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul.”

 Song;  Join all the glorious names  

Confession;

O King enthroned on high,
filling the earth with your glory:
holy is your name,
Lord God almighty.
In our sinfulness we cry to you
to take our guilt away,
and to cleanse our lips to speak your word,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.  (From Isaiah 6)

May Almighty God who sent His Son into the world to save sinners, bring us pardon and peace now and forever. Amen

Bible Reading: Acts 16:6 -15 The gospel spreads into Europe (Ian Wright)

Creed:    Let us affirm our faith in Jesus Christ;

Though he was divine,
he did not cling to equality with God,
but made himself nothing.
Taking the form of a slave,
he was born in human likeness.
He humbled himself
and was obedient to death,
even the death of the cross.
Therefore God has raised him on high,
and given him the name above every name:
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
and every voice proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Amen.                          (From Philippians 2.6-11)

Thursday is Ascension Day – from Thursday morning there will be a short reflection online to think about the importance of the reality that Jesus is now (after his death & resurrection) in heaven ruling from God’s right hand

As we are separated physically from one another we can’t share bread & wine in Holy communion as we normally would. On this 3rd Sunday of the month  – reflecting our usual pattern at the10.30 service – we’re going to have time to reflect on the significance of Jesus’ death on the cross in our place for our sins. This is what you might call “Spiritual communion” – for after all, it is what the bread & wine point to & remind us of, that is most important.

To join the Zoom virtual coffee time from 11.30 am on Sunday morning–   ask Jim Innes to send an invitation. james(at)innes.email  – replace (at) with@

Also a big thank you to Lester and members of our choir who have produced a special choral blessing for the end of our service this morning.

Verse; We’re continuing our sermon series looking at the book of Acts. Adam Young is going to be leading us through chapter 15 where we read of  the Apostle Peter speaking about the gospel going to non-Jews, Gentiles  “God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe. [He gave] them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us,  and he made no distinction between us and them, having cleansed their hearts by faith. Now, therefore, why are you putting God to the test by placing a yoke on the neck of the disciples that neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?  But we believe that we will be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will.”

Hymn –   O Praise Ye the Lord (Psalm 150)

Prayer;

Almighty God,

To whom all hearts are open,

All desires known,

And from whom no secrets are hidden:

Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts

By the inspiration of your Holy Spirit,

That we may perfectly love you,

And worthily magnify your Holy Name;

Through Christ our Lord.

Amen

 

Bible Reading: Acts 15:1- 16:5   Jonathan Verdon Smith (Audio only)

Nicene Creed.

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is,
seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.
Amen.                                                   *= ‘Universal’

Spare those who confess their faults.
Restore those who are penitent,
according to your promises declared to mankind
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake,
that we may live a disciplined, righteous and godly life,

Join in the hymns & pause after each reading & meditation, to reflect on God’s word concerning these precious truths.

The idea is that we can use the words here and ‘click’ on the audio & video files so that we can join in prayers, singing, and learning from the Bible. Do pass on to others that we are ‘meeting’ like this.

Notices

-Do give feedback by email as we learn together about being church in these unusual times.

-The 40 days of Lent readings are still available on the WhatsApp All Saints’ Prayer group. Let me, or Derek, know if you would like to join this. We are also producing some daily readings on Jonah written by Adam which should be available electronically & by post if requested.

-Some of us may have heard that Trevor Raylor passed away last weekend. Trevor was one of our longest standing members at All Saints’ and a great example of faith in Jesus, service and friendship. We thank God for Him & the hope of eternal life in Jesus. Given the current restrictions, a short family only service is planned for next week and something more public later in the year.  We shall be praying for God’s grace for Maureen, Ben & Suzie later.

Words from Matthew 21: ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes.’

Song ; The Church’s one foundation

Confession;

Father,
we have sinned against you.
We are not worthy to be called your children.
We turn to you again.
Have mercy on us,
bring us back to yourself
as those who once were dead
but now have life through Christ our Lord.  Amen.   (From  Luke 15)

May Almighty God who sent His Son into the world to save sinners, bring us pardon and peace now and forever. Amen

Bible Reading: Matthew 21:33-46  Read by Jim Innes.

 

Profession of Faith – The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
Amen.
