The Collect for the Fourth Sunday of Easter

Almighty God,
whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life:
raise us, who trust in him,
from the death of sin to the life of righteousness,
that we may seek those things which are above,
where he reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Our Parish Prayer

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

Holy God, you are the well-spring of life,
the source of living water.
Inspire your church to continue to work passionately
to help provide for that basic need
