Day by Day we have specific intentions in our prayers in the parish


Almighty God, we pray for your blessing on all who

share in the life and work of our Church and Parish:

In the ministry of word and sacrament,

in teaching and pastoral care,

in service to the Diocese and Deanery.

The community and those in need,

in ecumenical fellowship and co-operation.

We pray for all members of the congregation,

that in their life and work they may advance

your kingdom and bear witness to your love,

shown in your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
