The Mission Prayer

God of Mission, who alone brings growth to your Church, send  your Holy Spirit to give vision to our planning, wisdom to our actions, and power to our witness.  Help our church to grow in numbers, in spiritual commitment to you, and in service to our local community, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

WENDY RIP:  You will be sorry to learn that Wendy died at the Hospice early on Friday morning and our sincere condolences go to her family. 

‘I would like to thank you all for helping me with pastoral duties for Wendy.  You have all been marvellous at doing whatever Wendy needed.  I couldn’t have done without you all.  Wendy is at peace now and I am sure we will all have our own memories of her to keep.  Thank you again.  Barbara’

Thank you Barbara,  for all your work co-ordinating the help and support over the past year.

Wendy’s sister Hilary in New Zealand, would also like to thank everyone for all their help and support given to Wendy during her illness, without which she would have been very much on her own.
