The Collect for the Day

Lord God,

your Son left the riches of heaven

and became poor for our sake:

when we prosper save us from pride,

when we are needy save us from despair,

that we may trust in you alone;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

  

Please pray for those who are ill

John Mortimer

Pam Farmer

 

 

We remember those whom we know,

who are suffering in sickness or adversity,

and those who especially need our prayers at this time.

 

Heart 4 Rudloe this Sunday 22nd July

 

Heart 4 Rudloe meets on the second and fourth Sunday

of the month, between 4pm and 6pm, and everyone of

any age is welcome (children must bring an adult to look

after them).

 

The afternoon includes craft, tea drinking and Lego building. This is followed by prayer, story and songs.

We round off the afternoon with some food (a light meal).

 

This activity is free, and is being run as part of the work of the Church of England in Box Parish.  Please do come along and join us as we make, pray and eat in the JSU Corsham Community Centre on Leafy Lane.

 

Another pair of helping hands at Heart is always welcome. If you are able to help, just once or twice a year even, we would love to hear from you.  An extra pair of hands make a huge difference.  Please call Janet or Alice if you are able to help in this way. 

Thank you.
