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.



Almighty God,

whose Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ, is the light of the world:

may your people, illuminated by your word and sacraments,

shine with the radiance of his glory,

that he may be known, worshipped, and obeyed

to the ends of the earth;

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.


The sick: Maree Kesby, Olive Sheaffe, Joan Sheaffe, Peg Parry, Joy Hutley, Narelle, Len and Maureen Clapham, Bernice Robinson, Deborah and Margaret Doyle.


The bereaved: We remember Frank William Lees, Ian MacKenzie Heydon and all who have gone before and pray for their families and friends.

“We will connect to the wider community intentionally and meaningfully seeking to bring transformation of life through faith in Jesus Christ.”


The Anglican Parish of Lismore in the Diocese of Grafton is committed to protecting your privacy.

The people on this sick list have requested prayers at this time. Please inform the Parish Office of any changes
