Praying for St John’s through the Vacancy


Ephesians 2 v 10

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Dear Loving God, It is a wonderful truth that each of us is a detailed, unique masterpiece designed by you. May we find and live out the plans that you have made long ago for us, in Christ, and for your Glory. Amen

Aiton, is scheduled to take place here at St
John’s on Saturday, 14/10/2017 and will be performed
by Bishop Gregor. Provisionally this will
be at 12noon, but confirmation of this, and other
details for the day, will follow as soon as possible.
