Eternal God,

you exalted Jesus Christ to rule over all things,

and have made us instruments of his kingdom:

by your Spirit empower us to love the unloved,

and to minister to all in need,

then at the last bring us to your eternal realm

where we may be welcomed into your everlasting joy

and may worship and adore you for ever;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


Response to the Two Great Commandments:

Lord, have mercy on us: and write your law in our hearts by your Holy Spirit


A Prayer as we wait for our new Rector

Bountiful God, thank you for giving us a faithful pastor who will faithfully speak your word, minister your sacraments, and encourage and equip your people for ministry; as we await the coming of Christian & Brenda we pray for them as their ministry in Mundingburra draws to a close;

and we pray for ourselves,

that we may have warm and generous hearts

through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
