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



O Lord our God,

you are always more ready to bestow

your good gifts upon us

than we are to seek them;

and more willing to give than we desire or deserve:

in our every need,

grant us the first and best of all your gifts,

the spirit who makes us your children.

we ask this through Lord Jesus, your Son,

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

one God for ever and 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, and Bernice Robinson.



The bereaved: We remember Tony Blakeney all who have gone before and pray for their families and friends.
