Passion for Christ - Compassion for All

++++++++PRAYER FOR UKRAINE++++++++++++

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


Fr Simon talks this week of the big debate going on about the use of church and cathedral
in his Friday Thought. Read it in his FRIDAY EMAIL (please click here)


We are seeking to appoint a creative and inspirational Director of Music (who may also be an organist) to help
