Parish is committed to the Diocese of Plymouth Vision Statement calling us to become more fully a celebrating, caring, learning and living
church. We are a parish community called together by God to live out our
Christian life of witness in the world.
We ask your
blessing, Gracious God, on our parish. May it always assemble in peace, in reconciliation, justice and
joy, in praise of you and in service to the world. May we always
accept each other with gratitude and build up each other as members
of one body. May we be one as
your Son, Jesus Christ, prayed that we might be. With him in the
unity of the holy Spirit we give you all honour and glory.
Prayer “God our Father, open
the horizons of our minds and hearts so that we can see what hope
Your call holds for us.
Pour out the overflowing gifts of Your Spirit so that we, Your
Church, may become a people of hope for our world.
We ask you this, through Jesus Christ Our Lord, who lives and
reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever
Our Lady, Mother of Hope, pray for us. St Peter, Rock of Hope, pray
for us. St Paul, Apostle of Hope, pray for us”
"The body [Christ's
Church] is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though
all its parts are many, they form one body.... The eye cannot say
to the hand, 'I don't need you!' And the head cannot say to the
feet, 'I don't need you!' God has combined the members of the body
... so that there should be no division in the body, but that its
parts should have equal concern for each other."
1 Cor 12:12, 21, 24-25 (NIV)
