Sermon Audio Video conducted by Rev Sam Campbell of Mossley Methodist Church
Mark 1:4-11

And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptised by him in the River Jordan. John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt round his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And this was his message: ‘After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptise you with[a] water, but he will baptise you with[b] the Holy Spirit.’

The baptism and testing of Jesus

At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptised by John in the Jordan. 10 Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven: ‘You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.’

Mark 9:2-10
The transfiguration

After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.

Peter said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters – one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)

Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: ‘This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!’

Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.

As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what ‘rising from the dead’ meant.

Mark 14:61-62

61 But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer.

Again the high priest asked him, ‘Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?’

62 ‘I am,’ said Jesus. ‘And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.’

Mark 15:39

39 And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died,[a] he said, ‘Surely this man was the Son of God!’

Matthew 26:24-26

24 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.’

25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, ‘Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?’

Jesus answered, ‘You have said so.’

26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’

BACK TO CHURCH SERVICES ONLINE …but we are still in this together!

You may be aware that the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Advisor, along with NI Executive Junior Ministers met with the Faith Leaders’ Forum in the light of the escalation of Corona Virus this week.

Read below the comforting words and helpful guidance that the Rev Dr Heather Morris gives on behalf of the heads of The MCI:

“In light of the unequivocal medical and public health advice received at that meeting we believe that it is right that all Sunday gatherings for worship and all in person church activities in Methodist Churches in Northern Ireland should cease at the present time. At this stage you should plan that this will be our position until 6th February, although this will be reviewed towards the end of January.”

Heather goes on to say: 

“Young people have borne a particularly heavy load through these last months, and even through this last week. We are so grateful to you and the many youth and children’s workers and leaders who are remaining connected through online activities. Why not join with IMYC staff next week, each day online at 11am to pray for children, young people and young adults? You will find a link to sign up in IMYC’s most recent email and on their social media. (Link HERE).

This week the 6th January, marked Epiphany when the Church remembers the Journey of the Magi. This prayer was written for Epiphany. I hope that these words bless you as they blessed me.

“Lord, the sight of the guiding star,
brought hope, courage and joy
To those who had journeyed to find you.
When our journey seems long,
When hope seems far away,
When our courage is failing
Fill us with faith and trust;
Shine your light on our fears,
Lift our hearts with your joy.”

The invitation before us is exactly the same as the invitation which God has graciously given throughout the generations; to faithfully, and in the power of the Spirit, bear witness to Jesus in our context. Our context has its particular challenges, and opportunities, but God’s invitation and God’s enabling remain the same.”

Heather also wants to make our congregations with online ZOOM access aware that there will be a Connexional Prayer meeting on Thursday 28th January at 8pm. Further details will be circulated through the usual social media channels. “We are grateful to Ruth Alderdice and Helen Sweeney who facilitate these prayer meetings. The last two have been a blessing. All are welcome to attend” …and many in their 100’s have done so, from both North and South of the island.

This action has been taken, ahead of NI Executive regulations, along with the Church of Ireland, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, the Roman Catholic Church. 

Weddings and funerals may still go ahead in church buildings, the number who may attend remains capped at 25 and includes those involved in the service and children under 12.

REPEAT ANNOUNCEMENT from the Rev Sam Campbell:

“In the light of this new virus strain, the Society Stewards and I have taken the difficult decision to close our churches until the Sunday the 7th of February 2021. We do this with regret, realising that many benefit from gathering together, but our main priority is to keep safe and protect all our members. I will of course be available for pastoral emergencies and will continue recording my services, made available on line and via telephone access”

John 1:1-14
The Word became flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.

There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

1st Sunday of Christmas Sermon 2020

Sermon Audio Video conducted by Rev Sam Campbell of Mossley Methodist Church
Luke 2:21-40

21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.

Jesus presented in the temple

22 When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord 23 (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, ‘Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord’[a]), 24 and to offer a sacrifice in keeping with what is said in the Law of the Lord: ‘a pair of doves or two young pigeons’.[b]

25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. 26 It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. 27 Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, 28 Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:

29 ‘Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
    you may now dismiss[c] your servant in peace.
30 For my eyes have seen your salvation,
31     which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
    and the glory of your people Israel.’

33 The child’s father and mother marvelled at what was said about him. 34 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: ‘This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.’

36 There was also a prophet, Anna, the daughter of Penuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, 37 and then was a widow until she was eighty-four.[d] She never left the temple but worshipped night and day, fasting and praying. 38 Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.

39 When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. 40 And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.

2 Corinthians 2:16

16 To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task?

John 14:16

16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you for ever.

Galatians 3:28

28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Isaiah 9:2, 6-7

The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
    a light has dawned.

For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
    and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
    with justice and righteousness
    from that time on and for ever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
    will accomplish this.

John 1
The Word became flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.

9 Lessons For Christmas, Carol Service

Christmas 2020, we hear over and over, will be very different this year. To many of us ‘having a Peaceful Christmas’ will be taking on a whole new meaning as we stick to our bubbles or even find ourselves alone.

Traditionally, this evening would have been our Candlelight Service in Mossley, and now it too, along with everything else, has to be done a little differently by simply clicking on the link or window below.

You may choose to tune in curled up on the sofa with a cup of coffee, maybe even playing it in the background as you wrap presents or if you really want to go for it you can YouTube ‘cast’ it on to your television. Ultimately the hope is that within the forty-five minutes, you find comfort in hearing the familiar voices of our church family guiding you through the Nativity Story and helping you in the coming days to enter into the Spirit of Christmas.

Luke 1:39-55
Mary visits Elizabeth

39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: ‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favoured, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfil his promises to her!’

Mary’s song

46 And Mary said:

‘My soul glorifies the Lord
47     and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour,
48 for he has been mindful
    of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49     for the Mighty One has done great things for me –
    holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
    from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
    he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
    but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
    but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
    remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants for ever,
    just as he promised our ancestors.’

Leviticus 26:12

12 I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.

Sermon Audio Video conducted by Rev Sam Campbell of Mossley Methodist Church
Isaiah 61:1-4
The year of the Lord’s favour

61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion –
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendour.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations.

‘For I, the Lord, love justice;
    I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
    and make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their descendants will be known among the nations
    and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge
    that they are a people the Lord has blessed.’

10 I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the young plant come up
    and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
    and praise spring up before all nations.

Luke 4:14-21
Jesus rejected at Nazareth

14 Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. 15 He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.

16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

18 ‘The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
19     to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.’[a]

20 Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 He began by saying to them, ‘Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.’

Exodus 5:10-14

10 Then the slave drivers and the overseers went out and said to the people, ‘This is what Pharaoh says: “I will not give you any more straw. 11 Go and get your own straw wherever you can find it, but your work will not be reduced at all.”’ 12 So the people scattered all over Egypt to gather stubble to use for straw. 13 The slave drivers kept pressing them, saying, ‘Complete the work required of you for each day, just as when you had straw.’ 14 And Pharaoh’s slave drivers beat the Israelite overseers they had appointed, demanding, ‘Why haven’t you met your quota of bricks yesterday or today, as before?’

Amos 5:21-24

21 ‘I hate, I despise your religious festivals;
    your assemblies are a stench to me.
22 Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings,
    I will not accept them.
Though you bring choice fellowship offerings,
    I will have no regard for them.
23 Away with the noise of your songs!
    I will not listen to the music of your harps.
24 But let justice roll on like a river,
    righteousness like a never-failing stream!

Giving Christmas Cards In 2020

This year more than ever, the value of giving and receiving Christmas cards is incredibly important. I have it on good authority from a local supermarket insider (thank you Colin) that this is evident in the rapid diminishment of stocks. So it seems that in these dark times the sentiment is running deeper possibly more than ever. 

Sadly this year, how we give cards in our churches will have to change and the Rev Sam Campbell has asked that cards are not handed out within the church buildings. He said that “we have come so far, and it would be such a shame that a gesture of kindness resulted in an adverse effect because of it”

So please, with the desire of brightening up the homes of our fellowship and friends through this caring gesture, consider posting if at all possible.

Sermon Audio Video conducted by Rev Sam Campbell of Mossley Methodist Church
Isaiah 40:1-11
Comfort for God’s people

 Comfort, comfort my people,
    says your God.
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
    and proclaim to her
that her hard service has been completed,
    that her sin has been paid for,
that she has received from the Lord’s hand
    double for all her sins.

A voice of one calling:
‘In the wilderness prepare
    the way for the Lord;[a]
make straight in the desert
    a highway for our God.[b]
Every valley shall be raised up,
    every mountain and hill made low;
the rough ground shall become level,
    the rugged places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord will be revealed,
    and all people will see it together.
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.’

A voice says, ‘Cry out.’
    And I said, ‘What shall I cry?’

‘All people are like grass,
    and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field.
The grass withers and the flowers fall,
    because the breath of the Lord blows on them.
    Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers and the flowers fall,
    but the word of our God endures for ever.’

You who bring good news to Zion,
    go up on a high mountain.
You who bring good news to Jerusalem,[c]
    lift up your voice with a shout,
lift it up, do not be afraid;
    say to the towns of Judah,
    ‘Here is your God!’
10 See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power,
    and he rules with a mighty arm.
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense accompanies him.
11 He tends his flock like a shepherd:
    he gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
    he gently leads those that have young.

Mark 1:1-8
John the Baptist prepares the way

The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah,[a] the Son of God,[b] as it is written in Isaiah the prophet:

‘I will send my messenger ahead of you,
    who will prepare your way’[c] –
‘a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
“Prepare the way for the Lord,
    make straight paths for him.”’[d]

And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptised by him in the River Jordan. John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt round his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And this was his message: ‘After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptise you with[e] water, but he will baptise you with[f] the Holy Spirit.’

Malachi 3:1

‘I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,’ says the Lord Almighty.

Song of Solomon 2:15

15 Catch for us the foxes,
    the little foxes
that ruin the vineyards,
    our vineyards that are in bloom.

1 John 1:8

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
