    Sunday 6th December at 4pm



    Following the Paris terrorist attacks:

    a prayer from the Church of ENgland website:

    Compassionate God and Father of all,
    we are horrified at violence
    in so many parts of the world.
    It seems that none are safe, and some are terrified.

    Hold back the hands that kill and maim;
    turn around the hearts that hate.
    Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace - 
    peace that passes our understanding
    but changes lives, 
    through Jesus Christ our Lord.
