St Olave’s Church Prayer Cycle
A Prayer for Ukraine, from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York
God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace,
OUR DIOCESAN CONSULTATION
Living Christ’s Story Together
In the coming months, we will be spending time in our PCCs and congregations looking at the materials from Archbishop Stephen and his team about the refreshed vision that we have as a diocese and what it means to live Christ’s story together.
In a nutshell:
“As the church of Jesus Christ we have two stories to tell: the story of Jesus’s life, death and resurrection; and the continuing story of what Jesus has done through his church, including what he is doing in our lives now by the power of the Spirit. That’s Living Christ’s Story.”
I do encourage all of you to look at these.
