Please pray for the repose of the soul of Ann Mill who passed away on Saturday morning. Please keep Barry and Teresa and their family in your prayers too particularly as Barry's father passed away so recently too.

There is a comprehensive list in our Prayer Corner at the side of the organ for all those we wish to pray for.

A prayer for our interregnum for us all to use regularly.
 A vital point that we can all participate in prayer during this time:

Loving God, as we journey together through this period of interregnum,
let us look to the journey of our Patron, St Mary Magdalene, for inspiration:
As she and the other disciples walked alongside Christ, give us joy in each other,

as we share responsibility for our church and our community
and may the gift of interregnum be a period of deeper love and fellowship.
As she stood at the foot of the Cross give us courage to face our future and embrace the unknown.
As she waited and watched by the Tomb give us patience to wait and wisdom to live and trust in the waiting.
As she witnessed Christ in the stillness of early morning grant that we may witness his presence with us at all times

and let us look forward to rejoicing in that presence with our new Vicar.  Amen
