Passion for Christ - Compassion for All


Most holy God and Father, hear our prayers for all who strive for peace and all who fight for justice.

Help us, who today remember the cost of war, to work for a better tomorrow;

and, as we commend to you lives lost in terror and conflict, bring us all, in the end,

to the peace of your presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Our Lay Reader Di reflected on the Peace of Christ in her
uplifting Friday Thought in Fr Simon's Friday Email.

Mustard Seed  - read about it in the Friday e-mail

'Mustard Seed’ - our new monthly short, informal service with crafts and activities - was held on Sunday afternoon. During it, we thought about the rainbow God displayed in the sky to Noah, and planted flowers in our new rainbow garden in the churchyard. And then afterwards, there was a party tea for youngsters and hot drinks for grown-ups. So do come to future Mustart Seeds and join in the fun. And, even if you’re not able to join us in person, do pass the word on to those who may be interested in joining us for this new adventure.
