Grace and Welcome

Opening Hymn:  505   Be Thou My Vision       soloist: Jamie Coole Stevenson

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; naught be all else to me, save that thou art -
thou my best thought, by day or by night, waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Riches I heed not, nor the world's empty praise; thou mine inheritance, now and always;
thou and thou only, first in my heart, high King of heaven, my treasure thou art.

High King of heaven, when victory is won; may I reach heaven's joys bright heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, still be my vision, O Ruler of all.


Living God, in Christ you make all things new. Transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace, and in the renewal of our lives make known your glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Reading:  Deuteronomy 18:15-20      read by Peter Martin

A Reading from Deuteronomy  
The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you shall heed such a prophet. This is what you requested of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said: ‘If I hear the voice of the Lord my God any more or ever again see this great fire, I will die.’ Then the Lord replied to me: ‘They are right in what they have said. I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their own people; I will put my words in the mouth of the prophet, who shall speak to them everything that I command. Anyone who does not heed the words that the prophet shall speak in my name, I myself will hold accountable. But any prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, or who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded the prophet to speak—that prophet shall die.’
Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church. 
Thanks be to God.

Gospel:   Mark 1:21-28

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark.

They went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, Jesus entered the synagogue and taught. They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God." But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!" And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him. They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another, "What is this? A new teaching - with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him." At once his fame began to spread throughout the surrounding region of Galilee. 

The Gospel of Christ.

Prayers of the People

In peace, let us pray to the Lord, saying "Lord, have mercy."

For peace from on high and for our salvation,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For the peace of the whole world, for the welfare of the holy churches of God, and for the unity of all,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For Shane our bishop, for all the clergy and people. In the Anglican Communion for the Episcopal Church of Brazil. In our own diocese for the people and clergy of Christ Church Cathedral and of St. Peter's Lutheran Church and their pastor, for all the clergy and people ,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For Elizabeth our Queen, for the leaders of the nations, for all in authority, for those on the front lines of our Covid response Canadian Forces remembering especially members of the Governor General’s Foot Guards and those in diplomatic missions and NGOs, for our schools, and long-term care facilities especially the Garry Armstrong Home.
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For all who are in need: the poor, the homeless, the unemployed; for prisoners and captives, for victims of violence and oppression, for the sick and all who mourn. At St Bartholomew’s for Karen, Michael S, Andrej, Al, Colt, Elizabeth, Sue, Margaret, Laurie, Harriott, Marissa, Mary, Don, Christina, Hana and family, Harriet and family, Michael, Kathleen, and at St Aidan’s for Linda, Lee, Norma, Julie, Gary, Lisa, Kate, Seare. For all who have asked our prayers and for those who have no one to pray for them,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

For all who have died in the peace of Christ, and for those whose faith is known to God alone,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

Remembering the ever-blessed Virgin Mary, St. Aidan, St. Bartholomew, and all the saints, that strengthened by their fellowship and example we may give glory to Christ in our day,
let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, have mercy.

And now gathering all our prayers and praises into one, let us pray as our Saviour taught us.

The Lord’s Prayer

Offertory:  Blessed be thou, Lord God of Israel for ever and ever.  All that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine. All things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.

Hymn:  344   From All That Dwell Below the Skies             soloist: Jamie Coole Stevenson

From all that dwell below the skies, let the Creator's praise arise:
alleluia, alleluia!
Let the Redeemer's name be sung through every land, by every tongue:
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Eternal are thy mercies, Lord: eternal truth attends thy Word;
alleluia, alleluia!
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore till suns shall rise and set no more:
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Canada Helps

  • Offertory: Generous financial support is our expression of gratitude which along with our time and talents enables us to provide worship at St. Bart’s and support God’s work in service in our community and beyond.
    We thank our contributors on the PAR program for their monthly automated donations. If you would like to enroll on our monthly withdrawal plan, PAR, you may follow this link
    And thank you for those who have been mailing in their contributions or dropping them through the church mail slot. At this difficult time “Canada Helps” is another way to support us through a credit card payment. (They charge, we think, a reasonable, 3.75% to us)
