St. Mary's Vision Prayer

In 2019 church members developed a new prayer which encapsulates our vision for St. Mary's Church, for its growth, mission and worship. This prayer is prayed every Sunday in our services and throughout the week. We invite you to pray with us...

God of mission,
Guide and bless your church in Partington and Carrington,
as we grow in faith and number,
and in the knowledge and love of you Lord.
May our worship be joyful, Spirit-filled and accessible to all.
May your church be inclusive of each and everyone
and somewhere that all ages may grow as followers of Jesus,
as we pray, teach and baptise.
Give us strength to live out our faith confidently in all of life,
sharing your love and the good news of Jesus in word and action,
so that your power and presence
are made a living reality across our community,
lives are transformed and hope is realised.
Amen.
