Congregations 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 saving God,

who led your people through the wilderness

and brought them to the promised land:

so guide us that, following our Saviour,

we may walk through the wilderness of this world

and be brought to the glory of the world which is to come;

through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen


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. Amen


The sick: Maree Kesby, Marie Cormick, Nathan Giles, Olive Sheaffe, Joan Sheaffe, Robyn, Peg Parry, Glen Simpkins, Joy Hutley, Eric Pearce, Len & Maureen Clapham and Bernice Robinson.


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