    A Prayer for Ukraine:

    God of all peoples and nations,
    Who created all things alive and breathing, united and whole,
    Show us the way of peace that is your overwhelming presence.
    We hold before you the peoples of Ukraine and Russia,
    Every child and every adult.
    We long for the time when weapons of war are beaten into ploughshares
    When nations no longer lift up sword against nation.
    We cry out to you for peace;
    Protect those who only desire and deserve to live in security and safety
    Comfort those who fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones
    Be with those who are bereaved.
    Change the hearts of those set on violence and aggression
    And fill leaders with the wisdom that leads to peace.
    Kindle again in us a love of our neighbour,
    and a passion for justice to prevail
    and a renewed recognition that we all play a part in peace.
    Creator of all hear our prayer
    And bring us peace. Make us whole. Amen.

    The Benefice Prayer Group meets on the Second Tuesday of each month,  starting at 5pm for no more than one hour.

    We meet on Zoom when it’s cold, or together (but apart) in Rillington when we can.

    The first half is prayers, prose, bible passages and reflections on a given theme for that month.

    The next part is thinking and talking about the needs within the Benefice – especially in this time without a Rector.

    Finally we offer our whole conversation and the people who live and work in the Benefice to God’s mercy, grace and love.

    August's topic will be: How can we best love others?

    Interested?  – for more details contact rwood16@btinternet.com or 07922 049945.


                   Special Notice             

    Jo and Hilton White invite us all to a Benefice Garden Party in their garden, 31 Low Moorgate (opposite #69) on Sunday 14 August between 2 - 4pm.

    All offers of scones, jam and cream will be most welcome!! It’s a ‘get together’. Not a fundraiser.  Just come and have some ‘fun’ in the garden with folk from all the churches in the Benefice.
