Heavenly Lord,
you long for the world’s salvation:
stir us from apathy,
restrain us from excess
and revive in us new hope
that all creation will one day be healed
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Please note, the parish office will therefore be closed on 4, 5, 6 & 11 December.

Prayer Matters

The list of names of the sick is now quite long. However, we want to continue to hold everyone in prayer, so from Advent Sunday the list will be shortened to those newly added, or with acute or immediate needs. The names of those to be regularly prayed for will be specifically mentioned at the 8am and midweek services, and will be displayed in church on the Junior Church Prayer Board for all to hold in prayer.

This will take place on Saturday 22 December. A lot of help is required to set up on the Friday, help on the Saturday and clear up at the end of the day.
