Synod prayer

We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in your name. With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts; teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it. We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder. Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions. Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right. All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time, in the communion with the Father and the Son, forever and ever. Amen.

Information & Notices.

A sincere thanks to all those who worked so tirelessly to ensure that our celebrations of the Easter Triduum ran smoothly in a beautifully decorated worship space.

You are bright stars, again, thank you.

Congratulations to Simeshni Pillay and Rashaad van Wyk on being received into Full Communion with the Church and to Emma-Lee Bonnin for being Confirmed at the Easter Vigil. May you all grow in wisdom and strength of faith.

You will notice that there is Holy Water in the stoops again. Please sanitise your hands prior to using the water to bless yourself.
