Claypole Benefice
From the Rector
A Prayer for our Churches:

God our heavenly Father, make the doors of our churches wide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowship and a father’s care, and narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and lack of love: here may the tempted find help, the sorrowing receive comfort, the careless be awakened to repentance, and the penitent be assured of your mercy; and here may all your children renew their strength and go on their way in hope and joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
