Practice night is Wednesday at 5.30 pm but initial bell handling lessons can be at any time as the bells can be muffled.

Congregations 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.

O God,

from whom light rises in darkness for those who seek you:

grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties,

the grace to ask what you would have us do,

that in your light we may see light,

and in your narrow path may not stumble;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

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

one God, forever and ever.
