Heavenly Father, we thank you for Christian ministry that has gone before in this team and in this place.
We ask now, as we prepare for a time of vacancy, that you will help us all to share responsibility, grow in faith, love one another, care for those in need, reach out to others and welcome newcomers. Lord Jesus, guard and grow St Mary, St Michael, and St Thomas as we serve you through this season.
Pour out your Holy Spirit at this time of change; fill us with vision, energy, passion and faithfulness in prayer. Guide with your Heavenly Wisdom, those who will minister here amongst us in this time of change, that we may continue to see your Kingdom come and your will be done here in Beaconsfield.
