Prayer

 

Collect for the Sunday 28th February:

Almighty God,
you show to those who are in error the light of your truth,
that they may return to the way of righteousness:
grant to all those who are admitted into the fellowship of Christ’s religion,
that they may reject those things that are contrary to their profession,

and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same;
through our Lord Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

 

Service limits: Each church has an upper limit for the number of people that can attend a service. For Holy Trinity this is 57, for Christ Church this is 40 and for St John’s this is 30.
