The Collect for today - fourth Sunday after Easter:

Almighty God, you alone can order the unruly wills and passions of sinful men: grant that your people may love what you command and desire what you promise so that among the many and varied changes of this world our hearts may be firmly fixed where true joys are to be found through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Please pray for...

the sick and the bereaved

our mission partners: Andrew Pettinger (TWR in UK) and the persecuted church worldwide.

those taking A level and GCSE exams: please also pray for all our university students who will be taking exams, especially those in their final year, and for those taking SATS.

our local schools:

  • Sir Leslie Martin & Old School House Nurseries, and other schools which members of the church are involved in.
  • Hartford Church of England High School.
  • For Christian pupils who dare to be known as Christians in school; that they would know God's presence and strength amid the ridicule that accompanies this stand.
