Welcome to Worship Led by Revd Susan Holden

We extend a warm welcome to all and pray that all who worship here today will find our Lord’s presence.  Following the ‘Prayer for Today’ we will remain silent for a few moments until the Shepherd window is lit and then we will sing the Introit.

PRAYER FOR TODAY. Lord, we are here this day, eyes open to your love, ears attentive to your voice, lives ready for your influence. We come and wait, to discover who you are.  Speak your words of life that our lives may be transformed, and your good news set free for the world. Amen

INTROIT:       Jesus stand among us at the meeting of our lives,

                        Be our sweet agreement at the meeting of our eyes.

                        O Jesus, we love you, so we gather here

                        Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

Coffee and tea will be served in the Foyer after the service. Please bring them into the church ready for the AGM and GENERAL CHURCH MEETING which will follow the service.

The members of Church Council are appointed at the AGM – some of the current members wish to stand down – new people are needed on the council. If you could help in this way please speak to Susan.

COFFEE MORNINGS. The list for 2024 coffee mornings is on the notice board in the foyer. There are some dates filled in but many still to fill. It has been suggested that one is run in aid of the Farming Community Network we heard about at Harvest and another for Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. If you would be willing to run a coffee morning for either of these, or your chosen charity, please either put on the list or speak to Joan Jones
