We thank God for the promise of new life won for us all by the resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ and his triumph over death and the grave

For all those who mourn and whose grief, old or new, God sees and brings His peace to - may they find comfort in the knowledge of the resurrection of Christ. We give thanks for those whom we have loved, who now know Jesus face to face.

Please pray for our clergy and lay ministers:

For all who are called to try to convey the love of Christ to the world, flawed and imperfect as they always are. For our Bishops Donald and John; for the Daventry Team clergy: Dawn, Mary, Michael, Nat and Nigel; and lay ministers.

For those in our community:

For all who so desperately need to know God's grace and who do not realise it, that the presence of the Risen Lord may be revealed to them through the kindness, compassion, love and prayers of those around them.

For the work of our churches:

That with the Holy Spirit as our inspiration and guide, we may be united in faith and creative in action as we seek to continue building up God's kingdom in our three villages.
