Response to the Two Great Commandments:  

Lord, have mercy on us: and write your law in our hearts by your Holy Spirit




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

O God,

you have made heaven and earth

and all that is good:

help us to delight in simple things

and to rejoice always in the richness of your bounty:

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, forever and ever. AMEN








A Prayer as we wait for our new Rector

Bountiful God, thank you for giving us a faithful pastor who will faithfully speak your word, minister your sacraments, and encourage and equip your people for ministry; as we await the coming of Christian & Brenda we pray for them as their ministry in Mundingburra draws to a close;

and we pray for ourselves,

that we may have warm and generous hearts

through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
