Second Sunday after Trinity              

Collect for the day Lord, you have taught us that all our doings without love are nothing worth: send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love, the true bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whoever lives is counted dead before you. Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Psalm response: When I called, O Lord, you answered me.

Post communion prayer for the Year of Prayer

Go before us, O Lord, in all our doings with your most gracious favour, and further us with your continual help, that in all our works begun, continued and ended in you, we may glorify your holy Name, and finally by your mercy obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Safeguarding As the Church of England continues to raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding, we recognise that everyone associated with the Church who comes into contact with children, young people and adults, has a role to play. A new online training module, C0, is recommended for anyone who needs a basic awareness of safeguarding. This may include, but is not limited to, vergers, adult servers, bell ringers, welcomers, sidespersons, choir members, refreshment helpers and PCC. This course is a prerequisite for attendance at C1 and C2 training. C0 training is available at safeguarding@chichester.anglican.org. Any queries (or to produce your online certificate!) please contact Jan (862606).

My Sisters’ House supports women through a range of activities and drop-in sessions at 108c London Road, Bognor Regis (697800).
