3rd Sunday of Epiphany 23 January 2022

The Collect for today

God of all mercy,
your Son proclaimed good news to the poor,
release to the captives,
and freedom to the oppressed:
anoint us with your Holy Spirit
and set all your people free
to praise you in Christ our Lord.


We pray for our brothers and sisters across the world in Botswana, Denmark and Hong Kong. Closer to home, we pray for the Diocese of Birmingham and the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross. In our own Diocese, in the Norham Deanery, we pray for the Church of St Mary the Virgin, Etal and for the Salvation Army and the Society of Friends (the Quakers).

Please also pray for the people of the Benefice of Allendale with Whitfield and Ninebanks, and for Martin Naylor, who is to be licensed as Priest-in-Charge of the Benefice and Area Dean of Hexham by Bishop Mark today.

In our own parish we pray for Mariner’s Point.

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

We also pray for Ivy Pace, recently departed.

And in the Years Mind we pray for Maurice McConnell, Geoffrey Farrer, Betty Johnson, Eileen Champney and Brian West.
