A Prayer for Reconciliation after the EU Referendum
Eternal God, Light of the nations, in Christ you make all things new: guide our nation in the coming days through the inspiration of your Spirit, that understanding may put an end to discord and all bitterness.
Give us grace to rebuild bonds of trust that together we may work for the dignity and flourishing of all;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Being a Christian in the Workplace

The evening is free and simply the chance to meet and talk with people who face the same questions about how our faith links with our work. Numbers are limited and we need to know if you would like to come by Thursday 30th June. If interested contact Linda Thornton - firstname.lastname@example.org, 01375 673806 - at Bishop John's Office.
