Covenant Prayer

Covenant Prayer: I am no longer my own but yours. Your will, not mine, be done in all things, wherever you may place me, in all that I do and in all that I may endure; when there is work for me and when there is none; when I am troubled and when I am at peace. Your will be done when I am valued and when I am disregarded; when I find fulfilment and when it is lacking; when I have all things, and when I have nothing. I willingly offer all I have and am To serve you, as and where you choose. Glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, You are mine and I am yours. May it be so for ever. Let this covenant now made on earth Be fulfilled in heaven. Amen

Recordings of Services

Recordings of Services: The technical team can now provide digital recordings of services as well as tapes. This means we can write a CD for playing on an ordinary CD player, or copy the file to memory sticks and cards, etc. Unfortunately the files are too large for email. Please let me know if you might be interested in making use of this facility. Steve Barber
