Our bishops pray and call for peace in Israel and Palestine

Please click here to read a join message praying for peace throughout the Middle East.

We join with the world as we pray for peace, using a prayer from

 Archbishop Hosam Naoum of Jerusalem::

O God of all justice and peace,

we cry out to you in the midst of the pain and trauma of violence and fear which prevails in the Holy Land.

Be with those who need you in these days of suffering; we pray for people of all faiths - Jews, Muslims and Christians and for all people of the land.

While we pray to you, O Lord, for an end to violence and the establishment of peace, we also call to you to bring justice and equity to the peoples. Guide us into your kingdom where all people are treated with dignity and honour as your children - for to all of us you are our Heavenly Father.

In Jesus' name we pray.

Amen.

Uhrainan couple renew their vows

What an absolute joy to be able to celebrate a service for the Renewal of Marriage vows of Fedir and Valeria yesterday. They are a Ukrainian family living in our community having escaped with their four children. Out of their tragedy came this beautiful service conducted by our Rector, with bells, organ and refreshments. We wish them well and ask God’s blessing on Valeria as she struggles to regain her full health. Thank you too to all who helped make this happen.
