REAL    help needed Urgently !!!

Chaplaincy funding is now for ONE day a week only.

The need and desire in the schools is for this ministry to continue to grow.

We have indicated to our Teacher/Chaplains we may need to cut one a day a week from each at the end of Term 2.

Additional local funding can avert this; so we make this appeal now.

Your prayers, promotion and support is appreciated.

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

Great and loving God,

your will for us in your Son Jesus

is the peace which the world cannot give,

your abiding gift, the Advocate he promised.

Calm all troubled hearts,

dispel every fear,

and keep us steadfast in love and faithful to your word.

Grant this through Jesus Christ, the firstborn from the dead,

who lives with you now and always

in the unity of the Holy Spirit

God for ever and 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
