Collect Trinity Sunday
Almighty and everlasting God, you have given us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity: keep us steadfast in this faith, that we may evermore be defended from all adversities; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
2 Corinthians 13: 11-13
11 Finally, brothers and sisters, farewell. Put things in order, listen to my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. 12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you.
13 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.
Matthew 28: 16 -20
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Thanks to your very generous farewell gift I have arranged for my spare bedroom to have a new carpet also – so now my bungalow will be entirely nice and fresh and new! Thank you so much everyone. Mary

Sunday JAM – for those children who have sport on Sunday mornings.
Our first Sunday JAM took place on Sunday 4th June at St Mary’s Little Harrowden with an amazing total of ten children attending with their adults. We were thinking about Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit to the church, the children enjoyed the songs, the games, the crafts and the activities and they made a splendid marble run using tubes and a lot of ingenuity. From now on we will be meeting on the third Sunday of each month and so our next meeting will be on July 16th at 4.00 pm I hope to see you there as well.
For any more information please contact Carolynne Adam.
