Prayer for this week
You seek us,
you wish to offer us
And lead us to a life
that is ever more complete.
Grant us the confidence
to answer your call
So that we may be transformed
And become witnesses
of your tenderness for the world.
You are invited to join our discussions, which you can access on Zoom, during Lent based on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book, “Living His Story” by Hannah Steele. Accompanying the book are booklets entitled “Live Lent: God’s Story, Our Story”.
Both the book and the accompanying daily reflections encourage all Christians to think about their calling, how to share their faith and reflect on the difference Christ makes in our lives.
We witness to God’s story and the impact this has made to our story so that others might also find their story taking on new meaning in the light of God’s love. While the current restrictions on daily life necessitated by the pandemic present significant challenges, the suffering and isolation many continue to face make the need for us to share God’s love with our communities greater than ever.
Times and dates of meetings will be posted here shortly.
The Winter edition of Outlook magazine is available to read online now. The edition features some wonderful stories of how our churches have been spreading a little light in a dark season, as well as an insight into what we've been hearing from God - and each other - during this extraordinary time.
A Week of Accompanied Prayer for Lent
Limited spaces are available for this opportunity to do a retreat at home, setting aside time each day to pray, with input from Chris Chapman, of the Diocesan ‘Pathways to Prayer’, and taking time each day to reflect with a prayer guide who will make contact with you by phone or computer. For more information, and to book a place, please contact Janet McDonald via email or phone (07530 251318) - closing date 12 February.
