The Second Sunday of Epiphany

Almighty God,
in Christ you make all things new:
transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace,
and in the renewal of our lives
make known your heavenly glory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion

God of glory,
you nourish us with your Word
who is the bread of life:
fill us with your Holy Spirit
that through us the light of your glory
may shine in all the world.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

A Collect for St Peter’s Church

Father God,
thank you for our church and its people.
Fill us with your Holy Spirit,
so that our church may flourish;
help us to see you in everyone we meet;
and fill our lives with your praise;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
