June

4 June (Pentecost Sunday)

Creator God,
your Spirit disturbs our comfort
and calls us to do more to share in the creation
of the world we want to see.
Let that same Spirit pour into our hearts
to renew our courage and passion
so that together with you
all will have life before death.
Amen.


11 June (Trinity Sunday)

Loving God,
you call us by name
to be messengers of hope to a world
longing for justice and peace.
Help our church to act boldly and courageously
to be good news to the poor.
Amen.


18 June (Second Sunday after Pentecost)

Compassionate God,
you are impatient for change in a world
where injustice goes unchallenged
and the poor encounter relentless indifference.
Focus our attention on what needs to change
and make us urgent and tireless builders of your kingdom.
Amen.

We believe in a loving God,
whose Word sustains our lives
and the work of our hands in the universe.
God is life.

We believe in God's son among us
who brought the seed of life's renewal.
He lived with the poor to show the meaning of love.
Jesus Christ is Lord.

We believe in the Spirit of Life
who makes us one with God,
whose strength and energy renews our own.
The Spirit is love.

Camilo Torres, from Bread of Tomorrow, edited by Janet Morley, SPCK / Christian Aid, 1992


20 June - UN World Refugee Day

God of eternal comfort and good hope,
help us to stand firm and hold fast
to our belief in life before death,
to not be immobilised by fear 
or distracted by rumours or lies,
but to stand firm in solidarity
with all who seek refuge,
to hold fast to our hope
for a safe place to call home for all.
In the name of Jesus we pray,
Amen. 

#WithRefugees. Based on 2 Thessalonians 2:13 - 3:5.


25 June (Third Sunday after Pentecost)

Companion God,
the hairs on our head are numbered
and you know us by name.
When our trust in you falters
and our courage feels exhausted
breathe your transforming Spirit into our hearts
so that we may continue the journey with you
in solidarity with our sisters and brothers
to make a world
where no one is left behind.
Amen.
