Collect for The Last Sunday After Trinity

Blessed Lord,
who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning:
help us so to hear them,
to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them
that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word,
we may embrace and for ever hold fast
the hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen

Post Communion Prayer for The Last Sunday After Trinity

God of all grace,
your Son Jesus Christ fed the hungry
with the bread of his life
and the word of his kingdom:
renew your people with your heavenly grace,
and in all our weakness
sustain us by your true and living bread;
who is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen

The Readings: Jer. 31. 7-9 or Heb. 7. 23-end

Gospel: Mark 10 46-end

They came to Jericho. As he and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving
Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the
roadside. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout
out and say, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!’ Many sternly ordered
him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, ‘Son of David, have
mercy on me!’ Jesus stood still and said, ‘Call him here.’ And they called the
blind man, saying to him, ‘Take heart; get up, he is calling you.’ So throwing
off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus. Then Jesus said to him, ‘What
do you want me to do for you?’ The blind man said to him, ‘My teacher,] let
me see again.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go; your faith has made you well.’
Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way.

Help Needed Experience Christmas - we had a wonderful time with the children
during Experience Harvest but recognise that we need a larger team of two helpers per
display. So we are looking for more volunteers to join in and enjoy the wonderful looks on
the children’s faces as they try different activities and learn more about the Christmas

story. If you can offer to help on the mornings of the Monday 13th and Tuesday
14th December we’d love to hear from you.

Please email Rev Jenny at if you are able to help.
