The Collect for today

Almighty Father,

you have given your only Son to die for our sins

and to rise again for our justification:

grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness

that we may always serve you

in pureness of living and truth;

through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ 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 Derby, the Diocese of Clogher in Ireland, and the Diocese of Aalborg in Denmark. In our link Diocese of Botswana we remember St Augustine’s Theological School. In our own Diocese, we pray for the congregation of St Peter’s Parish Church, Bywell.

In our parish, we pray for those who live in Silver Street and Percy Street.

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

We remember those who have recently died and all who mourn their parting. We particularly remember HRH The Queen after the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. In our years’ mind, we remember Lillian Porter, Edith Barnes, Paul Swan, Hilda Johnson, Josephine Calvert, Douglas Turnbull, Douglas Pearson, Carl Maddison and Nina Walker.
