Parish Prayer

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: help us so to hear them, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  AMEN

Collect for the 2nd Sunday in Advent


Together with our Parish Mission Statement our Theme scripture is;

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, 

and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love”

1 John 4: 7-8

Please Pray for...
