St Mary’s Vision Day – 3rd July 9.30am-3.30pm

As we prepare for St. Mary’s Vision Day on Sunday July 3rd, let us pray for God’s loving
wisdom and power, to serve and transform our growing church and town for His glory:
“Heavenly Father, we ask you to guide us each step of the way, as we seek your will
for St. Mary’s together – that we may be more and more truly “a church inspired by God’s
passion for the world”.  As we listen for your voice, may we recognise your promptings,
and respond to your will alone through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.”
Monday 27th June 7.45pm – 9.00pm Prayers for Vision Day at St Mary’s
All welcome for all or part of this evening of prayer.
Sunday 3rd July 9.30am – 3.30pm St Mary’s Vision Day
All welcome to a prayerful process of listening and sharing (through worship, presentations
and small group discussion) that begins to discern what God’s priorities are for mission and
ministry through St. Mary’s during the next 5 years.
Bring and share lunch, special children’s and young people’s groups.
