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 to our celebration of Holy Communion

O God, the fountain of life,

to a humanity parched with thirst

you offer the living water that springs from the Rock,

our Saviour Jesus Christ:

stir up within your people the gift of your Spirit,

that we may profess our faith with freshness

and announce with joy the wonder of your love.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,

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

         one 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


Prayer Point: For our SRE teachers and students at our companion school Goonellabah Public School.


The sick: Maree Kesby, Marie Cormick, Nathan Giles, Olive Sheaffe, Joan Sheaffe,

Peg Parry, Glen Simpkins, Joy Hutley, Eric Pearce, Keith Virtue, Bernice Robinson and
