Partnership Prayer

Risen Christ,

from your abundant race,

pour out afresh your Holy Spirit upon our Diocese.

As we build on the deep foundations of faith

laid by the countless saints of these Northern lands,

by Aidan, Cuthbert, Hilda and Bede

may our Partnerships continue the mission

of building your Kingdom on the earth:

to give living witness to your love,

and to your compassion and hope for our world.

We pray in trustful confidence

that your power working in us

can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.

Through the same Christ our Lord,




The Backpack Project

The local Parishes are supporting a worthwhile cause by filling a backpack, new or used and in good condition for a child in Malawi. The bag can be filled with school stationery items, a small towel, soap, face-cloth, toothbrush, toothpaste and a small ball. Shorts, t-shirt or dress (used but in good condition), flip flops or sandals would also be well received. Tie a label indicating age and if the bag is for a girl or boy.

Further information will be given shortly on the Parish Newsletter where the bags can be left.

Please do not bring the Backpacks into school, this is a parish project. Thank you
