May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of us, now and evermore. Amen

Collect for National Indigenous Day of Prayer

Let us pray.

Creator God, from you every family in heaven and earth takes its name. You have rooted and grounded us in your covenant love, and empowered us by your Spirit to speak the truth in love, and to walk in your way towards justice and wholeness. Mercifully grant that your people, journeying together in partnership, may be strengthened and guided to help one another to grow into the full stature of Christ, who is our light and our life. Amen.

The Apostles' Creed

In response to the hearing of the Word let us join together in confessing the faith of our baptism,

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints,  the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

The Offertory Prayer

Creator, you bless us with many good gifts returned to you from your creation. Feed us with the bread of life, your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial,

and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours,

now and forever. Amen.

Closing Hymn - All Things Bright and Beautiful  Link to Hymn


May the Lord bless us and keep us;

May the Lord make his face shine upon us,

And be gracious to us;

May the Lord turn His face toward us

And give us peace;

And may the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

Be amongst us and remain with us always. Amen.


Today is National Indigenous Day of Prayer so we have used the Collect and the Offertory Prayer from this liturgy. We invite you to remeber our indiginous brothers and sisters in your prayers throughout the coming week.

We  are grateful to Bev Brown for sharing this week's readings and Aeneas Lane for the Prayers of the People.  

Please note that this week Priest on the Lawn will be Wednesday June 24th  from 10:30 to noon (weather permitting). Drop by for a visit, to say hello and enjoy some time in community.
