1 st reading: Genesis 14:17-20 Abram Blessed by Melchizedek 17 After    his    return    from    the    defeat    of Chedorlaomer    and    the    kings    who    were with   him,   the   king   of   Sodom   went   out   to meet   him   at   the   Valley   of   Shaveh   (that   is, the King’s Valley). 18 And     King     Melchizedek     of     Salem brought   out   bread   and   wine;   he   was   priest of God Most High. 19 He   blessed   him   and   said,   ‘Blessed   be Abram    by    God    Most    High,    maker    of heaven and earth; 20   and   blessed   be   God   Most   High,   who has    delivered    your    enemies    into    your hand!’   And   Abram   gave   him   one-tenth   of everything.
Gospel: John 2:1-11 The Wedding at Cana 1 On   the   third   day   there   was   a   wedding   in   Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus   and   his   disciples   had   also   been   invited   to the wedding. 3 When   the   wine   gave   out,   the   mother   of   Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ 4 And   Jesus   said   to   her,   ‘Woman,   what   concern   is that   to   you   and   to   me?   My   hour   has   not   yet come.’ 5 His   mother   said   to   the   servants,   ‘Do   whatever he tells you.’ 6 Now   standing   there   were   six   stone   water-jars for   the   Jewish   rites   of   purification,   each   holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7 Jesus   said   to   them,   ‘Fill   the   jars   with   water.’ And they filled them up to the brim. 8 He   said   to   them,   ‘Now   draw   some   out,   and   take it to the chief steward.’ So they took it. 9 When    the    steward    tasted    the    water    that    had become   wine,   and   did   not   know   where   it   came from   (though   the   servants   who   had   drawn   the water knew), the steward called the bridegroom 10 and   said   to   him,   ‘Everyone   serves   the   good wine   first,   and   then   the   inferior   wine   after   the guests   have   become   drunk.   But   you   have   kept the good wine until now.’ 11 Jesus   did   this,   the   first   of   his   signs,   in   Cana   of Galilee,   and   revealed   his   glory;   and   his   disciples believed in him.

Collects for 1 The 3rd Sunday of Epiphany Almighty   God,   whose   Son   revealed in   signs   and   miracles   the   wonder   of your    saving    presence:    renew    your people    with    your    heavenly    grace, and   in   all   our   weakness   sustain   us   by your    mighty    power;    through    Jesus Christ    your    Son    our    Lord,    who    is alive    and    reigns    with    you,    in    the unity    of    the    Holy    Spirit,    one    God, now and for ever.   Amen. 2 The 3rd Sunday of Epiphany God of all mercy, your Son proclaimed good news to the poor, release to the captives, and freedom to the oppressed: anoint us with your Holy Spirit and set all your people free to praise you in Christ our Lord. Amen.
Church Services and Opening Times We have reviewed the current arrangements for holding services and opening the church for private prayer in the light of the new lockdown restrictions.   The restrictions continue to allow communal worship and opening for private prayer.  We think it a good thing to maintain continuity of worship and prayer in the church even with small numbers, but particular caution is clearly desirable at the present time.   Until further notice, therefore, there will continue to be a live service each Sunday at 9.45 a.m., but we encourage everyone to err on the side of caution, and to access the on-line service instead if they are vulnerable or at all concerned.   On-line services every Sunday will continue, as will the mid-week Zoom Evening Prayer or Compline at 7.30 p.m. every Wednesday.  To ensure an extended interval between times of opening, the church will no longer be open for private prayer on Saturdays, but only on Sundays until 4 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The CAROL SINGING Christmas appeal raised a total of £826 for East Anglian Childrens Hospice (EACH).   Therefore, on behalf of the church and the charity, may we place on record, a very big THANK YOU to all who donated!
