Exploring ways of praying.

Starting on Wednesday 21st February for five weeks in Red Lion House at 7pm.

I hope by these sessions, we will recognise that the ultimate and greatest teacher in prayer is the Lord and that there are different ways to be with God in prayer.
What might you discover, this Lent? All are welcome.   Read more …

Almighty Father,
you have given your only Son to die for our sins and to rise again for our justification:
grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness that we may always serve you in pureness of living and truth;
through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Collect for Easter Two.
