Merciful God, you have prepared
for those who love you
such good things as pass our understanding:
pour into our hearts
such love toward you
that we, loving you in all things
and above all things,
may obtain your promises,
which exceed all that we can desire;
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.

Parents & Carers: Take Good Care

Please supervise those in your care during and after the service. There are many potential hazards in and around the church and we would not want anyone to be injured.

No cash to callers please

As hard as it is to say ‘no’ in times of need, please don’t give ‘cash to callers’ calling at the church and asking for money. This is a guideline for all churches in the Diocese.

Jam jars needed

Pat Fisher would like your standard size jam jars with lids for jam-making.
