Our Weekly Prayer
PRAYER OF COMMITMENT FOR PEACE
Let us commit ourselves to responsible living and faithful service.
Will you strive for all that makes for peace?
Will you seek to heal the wounds of war?
Will you work for a just future for all humanity?
Merciful God, we offer to you the fears in us that have not yet been cast out by love: may we accept the hope you have placed in the hearts of all people, and live lives of justice, courage and mercy; through Jesus Christ our risen Redeemer. Amen.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Mr Coutts Riddell for donating a replica of the first SE5 aeroplane to be used by the British during the First World War. It comes complete with ace pilot Edward “Mick” Manus. Sincere thanks to Coutts for gifting us with such a special aeroplane. And grateful thanks to Mr Davie Laing and Mr Johnny Hunter who, flying with their angels’ wings, got it suspended from the roof! Quite an amazing feat!
