On Sunday, 20th October, 2013 we celebrated the completion of Re-ordering Work in our Church with a Special Service:

Moving forward the work of the Gospel

We would like to share with you the Intercessions used during the Service.

Living God,
In this building, our church, 
    used to the sound of singing:
    which has seen baptisms and funerals;
    where people have come to be married;
    or to celebrate the birth of a child;
    where people have wept, or have been filled with joy.
In this building, our church, 
    where people through prayer: 
    have wrestled with the deep things of life; 
    have been stirred and changed.
In this building, our church, 
    where you have ever loved your people:
    be with us now and for always.
  
Dear Father,
Make our minds and hearts, like the new wineskins, 
     strong , open and 
     ready to receive the new wine of your Holy Spirit and 
     the knowledge of your great love and truth. 
Renew us, help us always to listen to you, 
     to be ready to respond, and 
     to travel with you in any way you ask of us,

God, our Heavenly Father,
Help us to make the door of our church 
     wide enough to welcome 
           all who need human love and fellowship and a Father’s care;
     but narrow enough to shut out 
           all envy, pride and lack of love. 
Help us to make it a place 
     where the tempted can find help, 
     the sorrowing receive comfort, 
     the sick find rest, and 
     the penitent be assured of your mercy; 
     a place where all your children can be renewed and 
     go on their way in hope and with confidence in your love.
