A Prayer for All Saints' Day

We remember the saints in heaven. Thankyou for releasing them from the burden of sin and death in this life and for keeping your promise to them.

Give them the hope only your word can offer us. Amen

Growing in Prayer Prayer is a life-giving activity that opens up deep places within us to God’s transforming grace. Growing in prayer is essential if we are to become the people and the Church God calls us to be.Making new disciplesAs the Christian story is less and less known, we must find new ways of telling the story, of explaining the faith and giving a reason for the hope that is in us. With Jesus Christ as our companion and guide we can travel through life differently.Serving the people of Devon with joyAs followers of Jesus Christ, we want to make a difference in the world and make God’s love and justice known. In our church life we seek to be local, participatory and outward looking.
