‘Coming Close to God and One Another’

A Prayer for the Global Church


Dear God,

Thank You that we get to be a part of Your global Church at this moment. Thank You for the opportunity to spread Your love and hope to a world living in darkness and despair.

Your Word says that if Your people humble themselves, turn away from wickedness, and call on Your name, that You will answer them and heal their land.

So we, Your people, are asking Your forgiveness for the times we’ve chosen not to love the people You put in front of us.

Allow this season to strengthen Your Church and to remind us of how much You love this hurting world.

Please heal our land and use us to meet the needs of others. Grow our faith as You grow Your global Church.

Come, Lord Jesus, and do what only You can do.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

At St. Peter’s we take the safety and wellbeing of our children, young people and vulnerable adults extremely seriously. We have a Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy and Procedure which is reviewed annually by our Parochial Church Council and is in line with the advised policies provided by the Diocese of Peterborough. We are committed to good working practice, including safe recruitment of workers. A copy of our Policy for the Safeguarding of Children and Vulnerable Adults and a link to the Safeguarding pages of the Diocesan website can be found below. Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Jim Reynolds, who can be contacted by email jimj.reynolds@virgin.net
