We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.


Almighty God,

you gave the law to guide our lives:

grant that we may never shrink from your commandments,

but, as we are taught by your Spirit,

may fulfil your law in perfect love;

through Christ our Lord and Master,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God now and for ever.



Please Pray for: Wise stewardship of our resources and the ministry of core people and volunteers.

-Focused and effective outreach in our five centres.

-Increased participation in home study groups.



The sick: Maree Kesby, Olive Sheaffe, Joan Sheaffe, Peg Parry, Narelle, Len Clapham, Deborah, and Margaret Doyle.


The bereaved: We remember all who have gone before and pray for their families and friends.
