Vicarage Notes

Thought for the month

Within the Church’s Year, each Sunday has a special prayer or collect. Many of those in the Book of Common Prayer are poetic in their simplicity, with well chosen thoughts brought into one single sentence.  The recent “Common Worship” has re-used many of the old collects and also supplied an additional prayer for the end of the communion service.  Many are worth further reflection, including the following:

God of our pilgrimage, who hast willed that the gate of mercy

should stand open for those who trust in thee;

look upon with thy favour, that we,

following in the path of thy will,

may never wander from the way of life;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our thoughts, prayers and practical support go to everyone who has been badly affected by the recent dreadful weather.  With homes and workplaces wrecked, and crops and livestock lost, people in both town and countryside are struggling.  The Addington Fund at the N.A.C. is offering practical advice and hardship grants.

Family Pet Service

Our special pet service at Oxhill Manor survived the onslaught of the rain, although numbers were down.  However, it was a lovely occasion and all who came enjoyed the service and tea.  We will plan one for next year, look out for the date in due course!

God bless, Nicholas Morgan    01608 685230
