Dear Friends

In our prayers this week we pray for:

– our clergy and churches;

– those who are sick, suffering, fearful or in need, remembering those suffering from COVID-19 and         their caregivers, those feeling isolated and those who are vulnerable;

– for peace within our country, and in the world;

– those who have died and those who mourn;

– the victims of violence and natural disasters;

– our Indigenous brothers and sisters, especially remembering their hurt and grief at this time;

– refugees, remembering those fleeing the Taliban regime, and those fleeing war in the Ukraine.

We hope you can join us in worship at 10:30 am this Sunday. If you feel unwell or are uncomfortable coming to church, please join our Zoom as you are able.
