Pray God of Justice, you have given us the chance to vote. Help us to reflect and use our votes wisely to tackle injustice where we see it, and to pray for countries where people do not have the opportunity to vote.
God of Love, you tell us to love our neighbours as ourselves. Help us to participate in elections in ways which demonstrate our love for our neighbour, and to wrestle with what the common good means for us today.
God of Transformation, you have called some people to put themselves forward as candidates. Help them as we debate their ideas for a better world and support them as they experience the strain and privilege of election. We ask these things in the name of your son Jesus Christ, Amen.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to your name, O most High.  To declare your loving kindness in the morning, and your faithfulness every night. Psalm 92. 1 – 2

We are pleased that you are able to join with us today, as we are here to worship our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Band – Tea Weekend 25th – 27th May 2019

The weekend seeks to be a weekend full of witnessing, prayer, worship, relationship building, celebration and glorifying our amazing God. Historically the Whit Monday was a time where all the Sunday Schools within St. Ives would come together for a time of witness on the streets and celebration together – known as Band Tea or Sunday School Treat. This carried on for many years, yet in the last few years sadly, due to various reasons, the celebration came to a bit of a pause. However, over the last year, two separate individuals received visions for an event on the Island that held all the values of the historical Band Tea event, but modernised and adapted it for a new time. After a lot of prayer, discussion and thought – it was decided that this year would be a great time to go ahead. Now the event has received official confirmation from the Council and Insurance companies, we are able to share this with you – the local churches, and would love for you to be involved and become an important part of the weekend and organisation.

WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE?
The vision looks at the whole weekend and seeks to involve everyone, from those with faith, those seeking and exploring, to those without. Therefore, each day looks slightly different and has an exciting plan attached to it.

SATURDAY 25th: The morning will start with 2 hours of open worship and prayer led by Worshipping Friends at St John’s In the Fields. (From 9am – 11am) The worship will then be moved down to the centre of town, with the band taking root in The Salvation Army, for those who wish to continue worshipping – or open for people to just drop in. (From 11.45 onwards).
Then from 1pm – 4pm (or whenever works best for the churches) the churches within the centre of the town are hoping to open their doors and hold different activities and opportunities. It is up to each church for what they would like to do and how they feel they would like to minister to the community. Some ideas churches have had so far includes: prayer stations, teas/coffee drop ins, worship bands, creative exhibitions linked to scripture etc.
During this time groups shall also be ministering on the streets, sharing Jesus personally and relationally through meeting people, chatting to them, praying for them, sharing testimonies and handing out bibles etc.
Then at 4pm – 4.30 ish for those who wish to, there will be a short time of prayer and worship- to thank God for all he is doing and for the opportunities that arose from the afternoon.

SUNDAY 26th: In the afternoon at 3pm a united open air service on the Island for a time of worship, gospel message and coming together for all local churches.

MONDAY 27th: The Band Tea Event open to the public from 11am – 4pm. The bottom corner of the Island (nearest Porthmeor) will play host to an open-air celebration event – free for all to attend. The structure of the day will be centred around 3 Christian musician/worship acts sandwiched between pockets of teaching and testimonies. Yet, within the day there are lots of other opportunities to communicate with others, communicate with God and grow in faith and relationship with Him. Some of the other areas planned are: Messy church tent Prayer tent Connect area (to connect people with local fellowships) Free light refreshments (Cream Teas/Saffron Buns etc) Prayer Labyrinth/maze And a few family fun activities such as a bouncy castle etc.

Thought for the Week

Who can you share God’s love with today?

For great is your mercy toward me. And you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. Psalm 86.13

We are pleased that you are able to join with us today, as we are here to worship our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. If you are on holiday, we welcome you and ask that you will please take our greetings back to your home church. The services this morning and evening will be taken by the Rev. Derek Cleave, from Bristol. We pray that both the Speaker and hearers will receive a blessing from the Lord. There will be tea and coffee following the service this morning. Please stay and have fellowship with others.

Flower distribution to be by Pat James.

Monday, 8th April at 7pm the Prayer Meeting leader will be George White.

Please continue to pray for Edward Jenkyn. He has been moved to Penzance Hospital, but is still in need of our prayers! Leah‘s operation has been successful. She is now home, and we can give thanks for this, although she still needs prayer as she is in a lot of pain. There are still many in our Fellowship to pray for. Claire has had the result of her scans, and the cancer in her body is stable. The doctor is very pleased. Please remember Mary Parsons, Jimmy and Vanessa Barber, Ted and Margaret Allford, Margaret and David Stratton and Vera Care. Also pray for Allie Bygrave, Iris Bidgood and Joshua Peters.  Doreen Barber is still in pain, and would be glad of our prayers. Although Margaret Trevorrow is better than she was, treatment is ongoing and she is not well. Pray without ceasing!

We wish Magdalene Berg a very Happy Birthday for next Friday, when she will be seventeen years of age. We hope she has a really happy day.

Next Sunday being the first Sunday in the month, there will be tea and coffee following the morning service. Please stay and have fellowship with everyone.

Thought for the Week

When you think of all that’s good, give thanks to God!
