  Message for the Week

This weeks Collect

5th Sunday of Easter

Gracious God,

you call us your own and love us beyond measure;

in the rising of your Son

we are made a resurrection people,

free us from the old ways,

make us faithful disciples,

so that we can share with others

what you have freely given to us,

Through Jesus Christ our Liberator,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen
