  5. 21 October - generous God, generous people. Over the next few weeks we will be posting a daily prayer on our website. The theme is ‘generous God, generous people’. Each Church Warden has been given a booklet on this theme. Please speak to them or the Parish Office if you would like to see it. Each week tackles one aspect of the theme and includes the same simple format of a reading, main verse, a brief reflection, a passage for further study and a simple prayer. This is a brief introduction to get us thinking about how we can be responsible and faithful disciples in a challenging world. We hope you enjoy the daily prayer and may God richly bless you.
