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


O God our defender,

storms rage about us and cause us to be afraid:

rescue your people from despair,

deliver your sons and daughters from fear,

and preserve us all from unbelief;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.          




Congregation Response to the Two Great Commandments:

Lord, have mercy on us:

and write your law in our hearts by your Holy Spirit.



The sick: Maree Kesby, Marie Cormick, Nathan Giles, Joan Sheaffe, Owen Miller, Olive Sheaffe, Judy Batterham, Robyn, Gwen Elliott, Peg Parry, Glen Simpkins, Joy Hutley, Eric Pearce, Len & Maureen Clapham, Noel Everingham and Bernice Robinson.
