Second Sunday of Epiphany 17 January

The Collect for today

Almighty God,

in Christ you make all things new:

transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace,

and in the renewal of our lives

make known your heavenly glory;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.



We pray for our sisters and brothers in the Diocese of Tampere in Finland, the Anglican Church of Australia, and the Diocese of Manchester. In our link Diocese of Botswana we pray for those who worship and minister at St Michael and All Angels, Broadhurst. In our own Diocese, we remember the Benefice of Cornhill with Carham and their Priest-in-charge, Rob Kelsey.

In our own parish, we pray for those who live in Haswell House and Horatio House.

We pray for those who are unwell; Callum, Clare Brown, Thelma, Cath Goode and Valery Morley.

We remember those who have recently departed and all who mourn thier parting. In our years' mind, we remember Hugh Jobson, John Bilclough, Morris Williams, Betty Probert, Dryden Anderson, Doris Mould and Morris McConnell.
