And we hope you will join us online or in person for our Gift Day Service next Sunday 13th June. Here is a beautiful ancient prayer for our church family and for the wider Church:  

Lord, we pray for the unity of your Church. 
Help us to see ourselves as rays from the one sun, 
branches of a single tree, 
and streams flowing from one river. 
May we remain united to you and to each other, 
because you are our common source of life; 
and may we send out your light 
and pour forth your flowing streams over all the earth, drawing our inspiration and joy from you.

After St Cyprian of Carthage (c.200-258)

And a favourite mantra of mine:

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people and kindle in us the fire of your love.”

(Anglican Morning Prayer)
