Come and walk the labyrinth

Message from Kay, our Vicar

Dear All

With regard to communion - we will offer bread and wine at communion. Please remember we cannot continue intinction (dipping thebread in the wine). Remember sip not dip!

Alison is away next week.  The office will be open on Tuesday afternoon (Kay is at a Mother’s Union service in the morning) and then she will be here the rest of the week.

“People for Parables”  We hope to portray the parables in our Sunday morning services in creative ways over the next few weeks.  We have a list of Matthew’s parables and some ideas on how to present them.  If you are interested in creating a new way of presenting a parable in a 5-minute slot, please contact Kay.

Calling all gardeners!  We have begun to plant the outer circle of the labyrinth with lavender and rosemary. If you have either of these and could strike a minimum of 10 cuttings that would be fabulous.

I thought if we struck cuttings now and brought them on into maturing plants we could transplant into the border in the spring.  KAy=

Sentence: Your word is a lamp for my feet and alight upon my path. Psalm 119: 105


Bountiful God, we thank you for planting in us the seed of your word: by your Holy Spirit,
help us to receive it with joy, and to live according to it, that we may grow in faith and hope and love;
through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Daily Prayer and Devotions

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.    Amen.

FOR OUR COUNTRY - Aotearoa New Zealand

God of the southern sea
and of these islands,
of Māori, Pākehā
and of all who dwell in our land;
we give you thanks and praise for our country,
and for what we have achieved together.
Increase our trust in one another;
strengthen our quest for justice,
and bring us to unity and a common purpose.
You have made us of one blood;
make us also of one mind.



Blessed are you, God of the universe.
You have created us, and given us life.

Blessed are you, God of the planet earth.
You have set our world like a radiant jewel in the heavens,
and filled it with action, beauty, suffering, struggle and hope.

Blessed are you, God of Aotearoa New Zealand
in all the peoples who live here,
in all the lessons we have learned,
in all that remains for us to do.

Blessed are you because you need us;
because you make us worthwhile,
because you give us people to love
and work to do
for your universe, for your world and for ourselves.


Lord Jesus, at Nazareth you shared in the life of your family.

Help us to live together in our family with love and respect for each other.

Make our home a place of blessing, peace and joy for everyone, to the glory of God the Father.


Eternal God, shed your light on us who watch for you,
that our lips may praise you,
our hearts bless you,
and our lives glorify you,
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
