Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life: raise us, who trust in him, from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, that we may seek those things which are above, where he reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

The Readings



5The next day their rulers, elders, and scribes assembled in Jerusalem, 6 with Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John, and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family. 7When they had made the prisoners stand in their midst, they inquired, By what power or by what name did you do this? 8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, Rulers of the people and elders, 9if we are questioned today because of a good deed done to someone who was sick and are asked how this man has been healed, 10let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that this man is standing before you in good health by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead. 11This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders; it has become the cornerstone. 12There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among mortals by which we must be saved.

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God


1The Lord is my shepherd;  therefore can I lack nothing.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures and leads me beside still waters.

3He shall refresh my soul and guide me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake.

4Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

5You spread a table before me in the presence of those who trouble me; you have anointed my head with oil and my cup shall be full.

6Surely goodness and loving mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,  and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen

The Gospel Reading


Glory to you O Lord

11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12The hired hand, who is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away-and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.   13 The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not care for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me,  15  just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. 17 For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. 18No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. I have received this command from my Father.

This is the gospel of the Lord. 

Praise to you O Christ.


We Pray for those who are sick and those who support them

We Pray for the the recently departed and those who’s anniversaries of death occur around this time.

Final Prayer

Merciful Father, you gave your Son Jesus Christ to be the good shepherd, and in his love for us to lay down his life and rise again:  keep us always under his protection, and give us grace to follow in his steps;  through Jesus Christ our Lord.                                 Amen

Welcome to all our visitors today

The Offertory Collection will be collected from the pews today.

During the service we will be offering  the Common Cup. If you wish to take the communion wine please pass to the left of the altar after receiving the Communion wafer and then leave to return to your seat on that side of the church. Please do not dip the Communion Wafer in the cup of wine. The cup is for sharing only. If you do not feel comfortable sharing the Common Cup please pass to the right hand side of the altar and return to your seat on that side of the church.

Please continue to donate non-perishable food items for distribution to families in need. If you prefer to donate money you can put it in the Cruz Roja collection tin situated at the exit door.
