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


Eternal God,

you have taught us through Christ

that love is the fulfilment of the law:

help us to love you with all our heart, with all our soul,

with all our mind, and with all our strength,

and our neighbours as ourself;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.



A Prayer for Choosing a new Rector

Bountiful God,

give to this parish a faithful pastor

who will faithfully speak your word

and minister your sacraments;

an encourager who will equip your people for ministry

and enable us to fulfil our calling.

Give to those who will choose, wisdom,

discernment and patience,

and to us give warm and generous hearts,

for Jesus Christ’s sake.
