And finally An Interregnum Prayer for our Benefice

Dear God, your love for us is unchangeable. You have welcomed each of us into the family of your Church. In Jesus, you call us to be His Body in this place. Send down your Holy Spirit upon us at this time of uncertainty and change, to fill us with vision and energy and faithfulness in prayer, that we may be true to our common Baptism, and bring new life to our parish communities.

Guide with your heavenly wisdom those appointed to discern the way ahead and a new Incumbent for this benefice.

that we may receive the priest you have prepared for your people:

ready to serve us with joy, to build us up in faith, and lead us by example in loving obedience to your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen
