HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS to our parishioner, Debbi Toole (November 6).
O God, our times are in your hand:
Look with favour, we pray, on your servant Debbi as she begins another year.  Grant that she may
grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen her trust in your goodness all the days of her life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

WE REMEMBER the late Frank Leigh-Spencer, who died twenty-two years ago on Nov 6, 2000, and Dorothea Crofton, who died nineteen years agon on November 8, 2003.
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. [Deut. 33.27]

SERMONS in person by Rev. Gyllian Davies also posted below on Sunday mornings.

God of all holiness,
in your realm of glory,
those who are poor now will receive the kingdom
those who are hungry now will be filled,
and those who weep now will laugh and leap in joy.
Strengthen us by this vision,
so that, with the saints before us,
we may bring near your justice and peace;
through Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. Amen.

whom the saints have trusted as Creator, Word and Holy Spirit,
will be with you now and ever more. Amen.
