Micah 6.8
What does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
We meet in the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
Song: Amazing Grace
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.
We come to say sorry to God:
The Coventry Litany of Reconciliation
All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
The hatred which divides nation from nation, race from race, class from class,
FATHER FORGIVE
The covetous desires of people and nations to possess what is not their own,
FATHER FORGIVE
The greed which exploits the work of human hands and lays waste the earth,
FATHER FORGIVE
Our envy of the welfare and happiness of others,
FATHER FORGIVE
Our indifference to the plight of the imprisoned, the homeless, the refugee,
FATHER FORGIVE
The lust which dishonours the bodies of men, women and children,
FATHER FORGIVE
The pride which leads us to trust in ourselves and not in God,
FATHER FORGIVE
Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
The Collect
God our refuge and strength,
bring near the day when wars shall cease,
and poverty and pain shall end,
that earth may know the peace of heaven
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Old Testament Reading: Psalm 70

(For the director of music. Of David. A petition.)

1 Hasten, O God, to save me; come quickly, Lord, to help me.
2 May those who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. 3 May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” turn back because of their shame. 4 But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, “The Lord is great!”
5 But as for me, I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer; Lord, do not delay.
Song:Oceans
Gospel Reading: Matthew 25:1-13 read by Leonard



The Parable of the Ten Virgins
25 “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3 The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. 4 The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5 The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
6 “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’
7 “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’
9 “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
10 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
11 “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’
12 “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’
13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
The Talk
Superheroes!

I have 2 questions for you
Who was your childhood superhero?
Who is your superhero now?



The Creed
Let us declare our faith in God.
Do you believe and trust in God the Father,
source of all being and life, the one for whom we exist?
We believe and trust in him.
Do you believe and trust in God the Son,
who took our human nature,
died for us and rose again?
We believe and trust in him.
Do you believe and trust in God the Holy Spirit,
who gives life to the people of God and makes Christ known in the world?
We believe and trust in him.
This is the faith of the Church.
This is our faith.
We believe and trust in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
Our Prayers led by John Franks
Prayers for Remembrance Sunday 2020
At the end of our prayers we will have our Act of Remembrance. We will try to arrive at 11am. For our 2 minute silence.
When I say Thy Kingdom come
Please reply
Thy will be done
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done

Good Morning to you our Great and Glorious God, you are Mighty and Awesome. We thank you for this new day. We pray that our work, rest, and play may be carried out in your name and to your praise and glory.
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
We thank you for all the many Blessings you have given us this week, for your guidance and protection, for family and friends who support us in these difficult times.
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
We pray for all those who are lonely and have no one to care for them Please send down the Holy Spirit to be with them to comfort them.
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
We pray for the Sick and we pray especially for Mark Gallard who is seriously sick in hospital after a heart attack. We pray for all the sick especially those suffering from Covid 19 we pray for healing.
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
We pray for our NHS for all those who are carers both professional and family members, but especially do we pray for all those who caring for Covid patients protect them and keep them safe.
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
Lord, we are saddened at the thought of war, of the soldiers who must fight and all those people who are killed. Today we remember their sacrifice with great sadness. We thank them for what they did for us. We also remember that they won for us a victory, that without their bravery these wars may have been lost.
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
Father of all, remember your holy promise, and look with love on all your people, living and departed. On this day we especially ask that you would hold forever all who have suffered during war, those who returned scarred by warfare, those who waited anxiously at home, and those who returned wounded, and disillusioned; those who mourned, and those communities that were diminished and suffered loss. Remember too those who acted with kindly compassion, those who bravely risked their own lives for their comrades, and those who in the aftermath of war, worked tirelessly for a more peaceful world. And as you remember them, remember us, O Lord; grant us peace in our time and a longing for the day when people of every language, race, and nation will be brought into the unity of Christ’s kingdom. This we ask in the name of the same Jesus Christ our Lord.
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done. Amen
Our Act of Remembrance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
The Last Post
The Two Minute Silence
Reveille
The Kohima Epitaph
When you go home, tell them of us and say, For your tomorrow, we gave our today.
Merciful Father
Accept our prayers
For the sake of your Son
Our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
The Peace
The peace of the Lord be always with you
and also with you.
Let us offer one another a sign of peace.
Song: Weep with me

Holy Communion
The Lord be with you
and also with you.
Lift up your hearts.
We lift them to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give thanks and praise.
Almighty God, good Father to us all,
your face is turned towards your world.
In love you gave us Jesus your Son
to rescue us from sin and death.
Your Word goes out to call us home
to the city where angels sing your praise.
We join with them in heaven's song: (sung)
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord,
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord
Father of all, we give you thanks
for every gift that comes from heaven.
To the darkness Jesus came as your light.
With signs of faith and words of hope
he touched untouchables with love and washed the guilty clean.
This is his story.
This is our song:
Hosanna in the highest.
The crowds came out to see your Son,
yet at the end they turned on him.
On the night he was betrayed
he came to table with his friends
to celebrate the freedom of your people.
This is his story.
This is our song:
Hosanna in the highest.
Jesus blessed you, Father, for the food;
he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and said:
This is my body, given for you all.
Jesus then gave thanks for the wine;
he took the cup, gave it and said:
This is my blood, shed for you all
for the forgiveness of sins.
Do this in remembrance of me.
This is our story.
This is our song:
Hosanna in the highest.
Therefore, Father, with this bread and this cup
we celebrate the cross
on which he died to set us free.
Defying death he rose again
and is alive with you to plead for us and all the world.
This is our story.
This is our song:
Hosanna in the highest.
Send your Spirit on us now
that by these gifts we may feed on Christ
with opened eyes and hearts on fire.
May we and all who share this food
offer ourselves to live for you
and be welcomed at your feast in heaven
where all creation worships you,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit:
Blessing and honour and glory and power
be yours for ever and ever. Amen.
We continue in the words our Saviour taught us in the words of The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Amen.
We break this bread to share in the body of Christ.
Though we are many we are one body because we all share in one bread.
Jesus, Lamb of God
have mercy on us.
Jesus bearer of our sins,
have mercy on us.
Jesus, redeemer of the world,
grant us peace.
Draw near with faith.
Receive the body of our Lord Jesus Christ
which he gave for you,
and his blood which he shed for you.
Eat and drink
in remembrance that he died for you,
and feed on him in your hearts
by faith with thanksgiving.
During Communion


Prayer of Spiritual Communion
Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits you have given me,
for all the pains and insults you have borne for me.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
I ask you to come spiritually into my heart.
O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother,
may I know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly, day by day. Amen
The Blessing
The peace of God,
which passes all understanding,
keep your hearts and minds
in the knowledge and love of God,
and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord;
and the blessing of God almighty,
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
be among you and remain with you always.
Amen.
Song: The God who stays
The Dismissal
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
In the name of Christ. Amen.
Notices
Birthdays
Dismissal
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord
In the name of Christ. Amen.

Sunday March 22nd - The Story of Ruth

Welcome to St Catherine's As we've now gone online for all our services, I'm trying out this as a blog. So if you follow down the page here we should share the service as if we were all together in our building! All the music and videos are links- so when we get to that part, click and listen to the readings and songs! We're looking at the story of Ruth - a little book tucked in after Judges and before Kings in the Old Testament. Many people celebrate Mothering Sunday today but I'd like to look at people who weren't related that closely, came from different countries and peoples but still took care of each other and found that God was faithful to them. Let's gather together this Sunday at 10.30 am worship! Welcome to our Service The Story of Ruth: Faithfulness Rises From Tragedy. We meet in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit   Amen Song: Mighty to Save click on:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H

We Say Sorry to God Jesus Christ, risen Master and triumphant Lord, we come to you in sorrow for our sins, and confess to you our weakness and unbelief. We have lived by our own strength, and not by the power of your resurrection. In your mercy, forgive us. Lord, hear us and help us. We have lived by the light of our own eyes, as faithless and not
