PRAYER FOR THE BENEFICE. There is a diocesan strategy ‘To place mission and evangelism at the heart of everything we do’. To this end it would be good to use this prayer, issued by the diocese: A prayer for Shaping our Future. Gracious God, may your Holy Spirit guide us into the future. Help us, throughout the diocese, to show uninhibited reliance on your grace and power as we seek renewal of our lives. Give us courage, rigour, imagination and generosity in order that your kingdom may come and your abundant life be known by all. Amen.

SOMEWHERE TO GO provides a safe, non-judgmental place for those who need support, advice, a friendly ear and it has been a crutch to many people who have been lost, lonely and at crisis points in their lives. Hot meals, access to a shower and medical help is provided 3 days a week. We rely entirely on donations and urgently require sleeping bags and funds. Please contact Mike or Margaret Cooper in Locking if you can help, thank you.
