“When God intends to make something wonderful he begins with a difficulty. When he intends to make something very wonderful, he begins with an impossibility."
- Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Coggan

Help us to share the ‘Good News’ with one another – and friends and strangers - in memory of you, our Saviour and Lord. Amen.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for giving us our church family! Help us to live and work with them. We pray that you watch over us and keep us safe, Lord.
Lord Jesus, we pray especially for our Minister, David, and all the Elders – at this time we ask that more members will come forward to serve as Elders. Guide the Elders’ Meeting in decisions made.
Gracious Holy Spirit, we pray that you
Sun 29 Dec
Heavenly Father, I thank you for sending your only son for me. May I always be truly thankful for all the sacrifices that You have made for me. I pray that I will never forget the true reason for this season. As this is the first Sunday after Christmas, let my focus not be about the temporal gifts but the eternal gift given by you, Lord. Christ, help me to tell others of your wonderful deeds that they may also know you, Amen.

Twelfth Night 5 Jan
Merciful God, forgive us & renew us. Remind us of your ways and words; plant them in our hearts - so we will cherish them.
Merciful God, forgive us & renew us. We forget that you have led us & still you keep calling us. Remind us of your truth - keep us in your way.
Christ Jesus came and dwelt among us, walking a way of grace and truth. To those who were lost he reached out in love. He stopped and waited with those who had fallen. Remind us of that grace that we might know we are forgiven & we might still walk your way. Amen.
