We thank you for your Church in this Team Ministry of Brereton, Rugeley and Armitage. We thank you for the many gifts that you give to your Church and for the call to worship and serve you as your family of faith.
We thank you for our fellowship and the diversity of each congregation within the unity of the one church. Help us always to love and respect one another that we might hold firm to our unity as a sign of God’s love and peace in the world.
We pray that you might help each congregation to look beyond itself to the needs of the community in which it is set. Give us courage that we might follow Christ in faith. Give us confidence that we might bear witness to his name. Give us compassion that we might see as Christ saw and do as Christ did.
Father, we thank you once again for the many ways in which you bless your church. May we, as we follow Jesus in faith and trust in the power of the Holy Spirit, bring honour and glory to your name and be a blessing in your world.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
