PRAYER FOR THE BENEFICE. There is a diocesan strategy ‘To place mission and evangelism at the heart of everything we do’. To this end it would be good to use this prayer, issued by the diocese: A prayer for Shaping our Future. Gracious God, may your Holy Spirit guide us into the future. Help us, throughout the diocese, to show uninhibited reliance on your grace and power as we seek renewal of our lives. Give us courage, rigour, imagination and generosity in order that your kingdom may come and your abundant life be known by all. Amen.

March’s DIOCESAN PRAYER CALENDAR is now available at Each month the calendar will highlight specific intentions in one or two Deaneries, together with a reflection for a Rural Dean on the ministry they see around them and a message from a member of Bishop’s Staff.
