OUR PARISH PRAYER
We ask your blessing, Gracious God, on our parish. May it always
assemble in peace, in reconciliation, justice and joy, in praise
of you and in service to the world.May we always accept each other
with gratitude and build up each other as members of one body. Teach
us to give instead of demanding, to trust others rather than to
compel trust, to serve rather than to be served. Make us thankful
for the variety of gifts and differences of personality that enrich
us. Help us to accept our differences of age, giving respect to
the old and encouragement to the young. Never let us be satisfied
with imperfections but also teach us that patience which is yours.
In peace let us be open to listen and to speak with readiness to
learn. Purge from our hearts all bitterness, jealousy and thoughts
of revenge. Lift us out of depression and sadness. Let us accept
joyfully the service of those who lead us, so that we may grow together
in love. May we be one as your Son, Jesus Chist, prayed that we
might be. With him in the unity of the holy Spirit we give you all
honour and glory. AMEN.

Why Do We Do What We Do?
So that they may all have life and have it in abundance, people from
North, South, East and West shall sit at the table of the Kingdom
Whatever work we are given to do we need to recognise that we are
part of something bigger, our local community. The congregation
to which we belong, the communion of the whole church.
By belonging people are set free and energised to become what God
wants them to be.
