Good and gentle God, we pray for the courage

to face the uncertain future that life with children always brings.

Give us the strength to live and to be loved in return,

not perfectly, but humanly.

Give us the faithful support of family and friends

as we care for the physical and spiritual growth of our children.

Give us joy and delight in our children and most of all,

give us the wisdom to turn to you for help, when we need it most.  Amen


TAX RETURN FORMS: Could I remind those of you who are PAYE tax payers to return the Tax Relief Claim Form as soon as possible.  This will not cost you anything; it is money that would otherwise stay with Revenue. If you have forgotten to return last years form, it is not too late to do so, as it can still be claimed back
