The Collect for today

God our redeemer,

you have delivered us from the power of darkness

and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:

grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,

so by his continual presence in us he may raise us

to eternal joy;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.



We pray for our brothers and sisters in the Diocese of Gloucester, the Diocese of Västerås (Church of Sweden) and the Anglican Church of Kenya. In our link Diocese of Winchester we pray for Cain Ormondroyd, Chancellor, and Sue de Candole, Registrar. In the  Hexham Deanery we pray for the congregation of St Augustine’s Parish Church, Alston.

In our own parish we pray for those who live in Syon Street and Stanwick Street.

We pray for those who are unwell; Callum, Clare Brown, Thelma, Cath Goode, Valery Morley. Elaine Beckett, Margaret Smith, Jill Johnson and Margaret Gibson.
