Thought for the Week

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the aeroplane takes off against the wind, not with it. Henry Ford


Faithful Witnesses to The Resurrection




God of all Creation, You have constantly poured out

your Spirit upon our Diocese

and kindled here a light which has

 spread throughout the world.

Lord Jesus, you gathered disciples to yourself

to learn from you

and to model their lives on you.

Your Holy Spirit empowered them

to continue your work in the world.

Come upon us, Holy Spirit,

deepen the faith you invite us to share

and inspire us to become faithful witnesses.

As we begin to develop our partnerships,

help each one of us to use the gifts you give us

to nurture one another,

to serve the world

and to live in harmony with the whole of creation.

All of this we ask in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
