BCP Collect

O Lord Jesu Christ, who at thy first coming
didst send thy messenger to prepare thy way before thee;
Grant that the ministers and stewards of thy mysteries
may likewise so prepare and make ready thy way,
by turning the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom of the just,
that at thy second coming to judge the world
we may be found an acceptable people in thy sight,
who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
ever one God, world without end.

Gathering Prayer
God for whom we watch and wait,
you sent John the Baptist to prepare the way of your Son:
give us courage to speak the truth,
to hunger for justice,
and to suffer for the cause of right,
with Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen

Every year, in recognition of God’s amazing generosity to us, his people,  it is traditional for people to bring new toys to church on a Sunday before Christmas and donate them to charities which ensure that as many children as possible have a present to open on Christmas day. This year our Toy service is on 11th December and all gifts will be gratefully received and, after a prayer of blessing for those who will receive them the toys will be sent to the Salvation Army for distribution.
