Ninth Sunday after Trinity

The Collect for today

Gracious Father,

revive your Church in our day,

and make her holy, strong and faithful,

for your glory’s sake

in Jesus Christ our Lord.



We remember our brothers and sisters in the church in the Extra Provincial Churches and in the Diocese of Aarhus. Nearer to home we pray for the Diocese of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh and in the Diocese of Winchester for the Benefice of Valley Park. In our own Diocese, in the Newcastle West Deanery, and Benefice of Newbiggin Hall, we pray for St Wilfrid’s Parish Church. Please also pray today for the Generous Giving Team in the Diocese, and especially for their preparations for Generosity Week (25th Sept to 2nd Oct).

In our own Parish we pray for The Drive and Parkside.

We pray for those who are unwell; Callum, Clare Brown, Thelma, Cath Goode, Isobel, Gemma and Mary.

And in the Years Mind we pray for Geoffrey Thomas Park and Mora Kaberry.
