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

Hidden God,

whose wisdom compels our love

and unsettles all our values:

fill us with desire to search for her truth,

that we may transform the world,

becoming fools for her sake,

through Jesus Christ,

your Word and Wisdom made flesh,

to whom be glory for ever. Amen.


Please Pray for: Parish and people of Kempsey who have suffered in the recent bushfires.

-All SRE and REAL teachers in our public schools.

-Increased participation in home study groups.



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


The bereaved: We remember Reginald Leonard Smith, Matina King (Coronakes) nee Crethar, Brian Francis Nicolle 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.
