From Bishop Richard

Dear Friends,

Last week I made a quick pastoral visit to clergy in Burnie, met with the Heads of Churches, met with the new Chair of Anglican Camping Tasmania, and on Sunday just past presided and preached at All Saints South Hobart for the celebration of Pentecost. I also announced last week that the church tribunal process in relation to former Bishop of Tasmania, Philip Newell had been stopped by the Supreme Court due to his health. Consequently, I spent some time speaking with survivors of child sexual abuse who found this very distressing. Please continue to uphold them in prayer.

Please join me in giving thanks to God for:

· His faithfulness to his church in Tasmania, across the denominations.

· Anglican Camping Tasmania, and the chair of the Commission, Tim Dornan.

· The ministry of All Saints South Hobart, and especially Fr David O’Neill

Please pray for:

· Many young people to become disciples of Jesus through the work of Anglican Camping.

· All Saints South Hobart to be effective in making disciples of Jesus.

· Survivors of child sexual abuse, who are struggling to find closure.

· The Diocesan Synod that meets this coming weekend.

Sentence of the Day

Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice? ‘The Lord created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of long ago.’   Proverbs 8.1, 22

Invitation to Confession

Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' Jesus said: 'This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: you shall love your neighbour as yourself.'

Silence may be kept.

Let us therefore bring our sins before the one true God, in penitence and faith.


Collect of the Day

Father, we praise you,

that through your Word and Holy Spirit

you created all things;

you reveal your salvation in all the world

through Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh;

through your Holy Spirit you give us a share in your life and love:

fill us with the vision of your glory,

that we may always serve and praise you,

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


Collect of the Day from the Book of Common Prayer

Almighty and everlasting God, who hast given unto us thy servants grace, by the confession of a true faith to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of the Divine Majesty to worship the Unity: We beseech thee, that thou wouldest keep us steadfast in this faith, and evermore defend us from all adversities, who livest and reignest, one God, world without end. Amen.


A Reading from Proverbs commencing to read at chapter 8 verse 1

1 Does not wisdom call,
     and does not understanding raise her voice?
2 On the heights, beside the way,
     at the crossroads she takes her stand;
3 beside the gates in front of the town,
     at the entrance of the portals she cries out:
4 ‘To you, O people, I call,
     and my cry is to all that live.

22 The Lord created me at the beginning of his work,
     the first of his acts of long ago.
23 Ages ago I was set up,
     at the first, before the beginning of the earth.

24 When there were no depths I was brought forth,
     when there were no springs abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains had been shaped,
     before the hills, I was brought forth—
26 when he had not yet made earth and fields,
     or the world’s first bits of soil.
27 When he established the heavens, I was there,
     when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,
28 when he made firm the skies above,
     when he established the fountains of the deep,
29 when he assigned to the sea its limit,
     so that the waters might not transgress his command,
when he marked out the foundations of the earth,
30 then I was beside him, like a master worker;
and I was daily his delight,
     rejoicing before him always,
31 rejoicing in his inhabited world
     and delighting in the human race.


Psalm 8 

1 O Lord our Governor:

how glorious is your name in all the earth!

2 Your majesty above the heavens is yet recounted:

by the mouths of babes and sucklings.

3 You have founded a strong defence

against your adversaries:

to quell the enemy and the avenger.

4 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers:

the moon and the stars which you have set in order,

5 What are we, that you should be mindful of us:

what are we, that you should care for us?

6 Yet you have made us little less than gods:

and have crowned us with glory and honour.

7 You have given us dominion over your handiwork:

and have put all things in subjection beneath our feet,

8 All sheep and oxen:

and all the creatures of the field,

9 The birds of the air and the fish of the sea:

and everything that moves

in the pathways of the great waters.

10 O Lord our Governor:

how glorious is your name in all the earth!

Glory to God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit:

as in the beginning, so now, and for ever. Amen.


A reading from Romans commencing to read at chapter 5 verse 1

1 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.


The Holy Gospel according to John commencing to read at Chapter 16 verse 12

12 ‘I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine. For this reason, I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.



All glory and honour be yours always and everywhere,

mighty Creator, everliving God.

We give you thanks and praise for your Son,

our Saviour Jesus Christ,

who by the power of your Spirit was born of Mary

and lived as one of us.

By his death on the cross and rising to new life,

he offered the one true sacrifice for sin

and obtained an eternal deliverance for his people.

Through him, you have revealed to us your glory in the community of your love, three persons, one God, ever to be worshipped and adored.

Therefore with angels and archangels,

and with all the company of heaven,

we proclaim your great and glorious name,

for ever praising you and saying:


Trinity Sunday   [Ordinary Sunday 18] – Sunday 16 June 2019

Proverbs 8.1-4, 22-31; Psalm 8; Romans 5.1-5; John 16. 12-15

Hope:  Today Jesus speaks to us concerning truth: ‘I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.’ What are we to make of this? All we can hope is that we may be found worthy by Christ to be able to bear the truth that the Spirit will bring. and not be either too immature for it, or too bound in error to accept it. 

Gracious Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church. Fill it with all truth, in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in anything it is amiss, reform it. Where it is right, strengthen it; where it is in want, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake of Jesus Christ thy Son our Saviour. Amen. – Archbishop William Laud, d. 1645

Give thanks for the Church of the Province of South East Asia, remembering especially the Most Rev Ng Moon Hing, his staff, clergy and people.

Prayer of the Week

Lord, we beseech you to keep your family, the Church, in continual godliness, that through your protection it may be free from all adversities, and devoutly given to serve you in good works, to the glory of your name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Prayers for Trinity Sunday

O Triune God, your three-fold name was placed upon us when we were baptised in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And this day we worship the Trinity in person and the Unity in substance of     Majesty coequal. Grant us the grace to continue in this faith until we join the hosts of heaven that cry, Holy, holy, holy before your heavenly throne, you who live and rule, one God, through all eternity. Amen.

O triune God, what an exciting mystery we celebrate today, that you, our God, are three persons in one being. Your essence is so awesome, it is beyond our understanding. O Father, you adopted us as your children through the death and resurrection of your Son. O Holy Spirit, you gave us faith in Jesus through explosive power of the gospel. You testify that we are God’s children, and you guarantee our inheritance of eternal glory with Jesus. O holy Trinity, your saving love overwhelms us. Keep us as your own, and each day move us to declare: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty! We ask this in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Saviour, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy spirit, one God, through all eternity.  Amen.

Lord our God, we turn our hearts and minds to you. Be with us and grant us your Spirit. May your Word be a blessing for us. We thank you that this Word is given us in Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Almighty God, stretch out your hand over the whole world. Let your Spirit bring a new age, an age of truth, righteousness, and love, an age of peace that comes from you. O Lord God, we are your children, and as your children we pray to you in the name of Jesus Christ.

Be with us and gather us in your Spirit. Amen.

Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”          Acts 2:38

Sunday Funny

The minister's little six-year-old girl had been so naughty during the week that her mother decided to give her the worst kind of punishment. She told her she couldn't go to the Sunday School Picnic on Saturday.

When the day came, her mother felt she had been too harsh and changed her mind. When she told the little girl, she could go to the picnic, the child's reaction was one of gloom and unhappiness.

"What's the matter? I thought you'd be glad to go to the picnic," her mother said.

"It's too late! the little girl said. "I've already prayed for rain."

A Bible Verse to take Home

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.                        Zephaniah 3:17, NIV
