North Cornwall Cluster of Churches Day of Pentecost 31st May

Additional Collect
Holy Spirit, sent by the Father,
ignite in us your holy fire;
strengthen your children with the gift of faith,
revive your Church with the breath of love,
and renew the face of the earth,

Holy Habits – Prayer

Silence – Try to create silent space to be with God this week. Don’t stress about how much time you can give this, just make it your aim to be with God away from the constant distractions. Turn the radio off in the car, go for a walk, turn off the phone so you can be alone with God this day.
‘Solitude well practiced will break the power of busyness, haste, isolation, and loneliness. You will see that the world is not on your shoulders after all. Your will find yourself, and God will find you in new ways.   (Dallas Willard)

Day of Prayer & Fasting. Pentecost. 31st May

This Pentecost we are suggesting that as a cluster we set aside a whole day to fast and pray for ourselves, our families and friends, our church, our community, our nation, our world.

Everyone is welcome to join us and we hope you will be blessed by it.

The Seventh Sunday of Easter 24th May

Additional Collect

Risen ascended Lord,
as we rejoice at your triumph,
fill your Church on earth with power and compassion,
that all who are estranged by sin
may find forgiveness and know your peace,
to the glory of God the Father, Amen

Holy Habits – Prayer

Habitual prayer Read Daniel 6.10-12
Consider ways to make prayer habitual and continuous throughout this day. You might like to use prompts such as making the times you boil the kettle to make drinks a reminder to pray. Or you could set your watch for each hour. Determine to pray as often as you can today – on your knees, like Daniel, if possible.

Pew Sheet 17th May

North Cornwall Cluster of Churches
The Sixth Sunday of Easter 17th May
Additional Collect:
Risen Christ,
by the lakeside you renewed your call to your disciples:
help your Church to obey your command
and draw the nations to the fire of your love,
to the glory of God the Father, Amen

Holy Habits – Prayer ‘A tent of meeting’ 
Try to find time and secret space, a place of focus, to be with God throughout this week. The spare room, a designated chair, a place in the garden, somewhere away from the routine of life, out of the path of distraction. Tell Him about frustrating situations, people and circumstances in your life. Tell him your joys and hopes. Share it all: the good, the bad and the ugly. God loves our honesty.

that all your people may be gathered into one flock,
