Prayers are offered this week for the forthcoming XXX Annual Diocesan Synod to be held in Great Barr, Birmingham.

We pray for travel mercies for all attending and for the business the delegates undertake on behalf of our Church and Diocese.

The Diocesan Prayer

O ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father,
who, by the child bearing of blessed Mary
Ever-Virgin, hast revenged our ruin and
by the ministry of thy holy angels dost
ever succour and defend us: Keep, we
beseech thee, our Diocese under thy
continual help and protection; that we, ever
needful of thy grace, may bring forth for
thee the fruit of good works and the harvest
of souls; through Jesus Christ thy Son our
Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee in
the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever One God,
world without end. Amen.
