Prayer for Ash Wednesday & The Season of Lent

Almighty and everlasting God,
you hate nothing you have made
and forgive the sins of all who are penitent:
Create and make in us new and contrite hearts,
that we, worthily lamenting our sins
and acknowledging our wretchedness,
may obtain of you, the God of all mercy,
perfect remission and forgiveness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Seasons Greetings

Thank you to everyone who made our church look so beautiful this Christmas as well as all the musicians who have sung or played joyful carols. Thank you too if you’ve helped with tickets, prepare food, helped with mulled wine, carried camels (!) or just popped in to be part of our celebrations. It’s been a very busy – but fantastic – season and we are so grateful to you all.

Whether you are a member of our church or are visiting our website from afar – we wish you every blessing this Christmas time, from all of us at St Giles’.

Advent is here

Almighty God,

as your kingdom dawns,

turn us from the darkness of sin to the

light of holiness,

that we may be ready to meet you

in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
