Update 7 June

Good afternoon friends,

I hope all is well with you and yours.

As you know the Annual Meeting of Parishioners will take place on Sunday, following the 9:30am service and a quick cuppa- so at around 11am. There will be no 7:30am service this Sunday.

I have emailed the Enrolment Form in case you haven’t done one yet- it’s not too late to bring it with you tomorrow (service at 9:15am) or on Sunday. I have also sent some information from the Parish Governance Statute which outlines the responsibilities of Parish Councillors, Wardens etc.- I hope you find it interesting! All the Statutes and Policies are on the Diocesan website https://www.perth.anglican.org/

People’s Choice’: As I’ve mentioned we would like to give everyone the opportunity to choose a favourite hymn for the services in the weeks after Pentecost; there is a sign-up sheet at church or you can email the office or me.

Please remember in your prayers the people of Nigeria, where more than 50 people were shot dead and many more wounded as they attended Mass in Owo on Pentecost Sunday.  Owo, a relatively peaceful town, is now the latest site of a mass killing or major attack – such events are occurring frequently, as multiple security crises overwhelm the country’s security agencies. About 3,000 people were killed by armed groups in Nigeria in the first three months of 2022, according to the Council on Foreign Relations. From The Guardian

This prayer can be for them, for the people of Ukraine and all places where war and violence are present:

God, our redeemer and sustainer,

                we pray for survivors of violence, abuse and neglect.

Give your power to the powerless,

your fulness to the empty of spirit.

Heal their wounds, free them from fear,

And restore them to true health.

Grant this through Jesus Christ,

the crucified and risen Saviour,

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Collect Prayer for this week:

                O Lord, from whom alone all good things come:

                grant that by your holy inspiration

                we may think those things that are good,

                and by your merciful guiding may perform them;

                through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

God bless,


The Reverend Lorna A M Green
