A TIME TO PRAY: We are trying to cultivate the habit of prayer in our parishes to help each other and ask for God's blessing on the Island, to pray for Veronica in her leadership, to increase our love for the Lord and to grow our church numbers. Please pray for these things on a Monday during the half hour from 6.30pm to 7pm.
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
