The Church of England

Here is today’s prayer from the Church of England:

Creator of the heavens,
who led the Magi by a star
to worship the Christ-child:
guide and sustain us,
that we may find our journey’s end
in Jesus Christ our Lord.


Happy new year everyone, we've had a bit of a move around so now we are solely in Chaplaincy Space Aiken Hall with a bit of an office. Pop in for cuppa sometime ☕

#EasterDay #HeIsRisen #JesusIsAlive

Lord of all life and power,
who through the mighty resurrection of your Son
overcame the old order of sin and death
to make all things new in him:
grant that we, being dead to sin
and alive to you in Jesus Christ,
may reign with him in glory;
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit
be praise and honour, glory and might,
now and in all eternity.


UoC Chaplaincy

#LiveLent #GoodFriday
Almighty Father,
look with mercy on this your family
for which our Lord Jesus Christ was content to be betrayed and given up into the hands of sinners and to suffer death upon the cross;
who is alive and glorified with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and for ever.


Christians in Sport

It's Friday... but Sunday's a coming!


UoC Chaplaincy

#LiveLent #HolyThursday
Almighty and everlasting God,
who in your tender love towards the human race sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ
to take upon him our flesh
and to suffer death upon the cross:
grant that we may follow the example of his patience and humility,
and also be made partakers of his resurrection;
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.

Restore: Carrying God’s heart

God’s heart is for the restoration of lives, relationships and communities, and he has chosen us, his church, as the means to see this come into reality.

Our Mean Bean Challenge is a tangible way for us to bring restoration through action, prayer and giving. In 2017, 1,000 people across the country were sponsored to eat nothing but rice and beans for just five days, raising over $250,000.

Lives were changed – lives of people like Lyson, who had to subsidise his family’s meals with pig feed, but now has a sustainable way to make a living, bringing an end to crippling food poverty. When we decide to act for those on the margins, for those who suffer injustice, poverty and hunger, we will see the God of justice bring hope, joy and tangible and lasting change.

Father, raise up men and women to carry your heart for justice, to see an end to hunger and poverty through prayer and action. May we be bolder and braver in all we do in your name. We pray and thank you for all who take the Mean Bean Challenge in 2018 – bless and inspire them as they act to help bring restoration and wholeness to those who suffer hunger and poverty today.

Restore: God is restoring families

We all know people who like to namedrop. They love to bask in the halo effect of the influential, rich or famous people they claim to know. Sometimes it seems their own status and identity is inseparable from those of the celebrities they talk about.

In Psalm 68, God namedrops those people he has special interest in. He ties his identity to theirs. Their status matters to him. However, it is not the world’s powerful elite that he associates with – but the vulnerable, the weak, and the marginalized.

Those of us who seek to be godly, must emulate God in this – caring for, associating with, delighting in and defining our very selves in terms of our relationship to the vulnerable. Being a Tearfund supporter is one way we can do this.

However, Psalm 68 has a bigger challenge too. God places the lonely – the widow and the orphan – in families. This begs the question – whose families does he place them in? Surely the answer must be ours.

Father God, we celebrate that you welcomed us into your family: you did not leave us as spiritual orphans but adopted us as your children. Please help us to welcome those who have been deprived of a family into our lives, homes and families, that we might restore as we have been restored. Amen.

Krish Kandiah, Founding Director: Home for Good, Tearfund Ambassador

#LiveLent #Day7

Heavenly Father,
Your Son battled with the powers of darkness, and grew closer to you in the desert:
Help us to use these days to grow in wisdom and prayer that we witness to your saving love
In Jesus Christ our Lord.

#LiveLent #day6

Almighty God,
may we, by the prayer and discipline of Lent,
enter into the mystery of Christ's sufferings;
that by following in the Way,
we may come to share in the glory;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


UoC Chaplaincy

#LiveLent #Day5

Almighty God,
Whose Son Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness, and was tempted as we are, yet without sin:
Give us grace to discipline ourselves in obedience to your spirit; and, as you know our weakness, so may we know your power to save;
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.

Restore: The great unbreaking

The great unbreaking

I remember the beginning.
The choruses of hallelujahs
the awe of newness
the sudden weight of time
and the mouth of God roaring violent light.

I remember the garden singing with life,
the wild scent of flowers carried on unpolluted breeze;
birds singing in the warmth of a young sun;
tentative footsteps on never-trodden grass;
man, woman – the first embrace.

I remember the slither of the serpent
and the hiss of the oldest lie;
I remember pain, the howling pain of knowledge
and then the quivering of shame,
hiding from the only love that could fix it.

I remember the breaking,
relationships ripped apart –
great chasms between people and God
and people and the world
and people and themselves.

But I also remember him.
The carpenter’s son, the Rabbi, the temple-trasher,
demon-tormentor, crowd-feeder, leper-healer;
I remember his body being wrecked –
his brokenness our great unbreaking.

Gideon Heugh, Tearfund

#LiveLent #Day4

Almighty God,

#LiveLent #Day3

Almighty and everlasting God,
You hate nothing that you have made and forgive the sins of all those who are penitent:
Create and make in us new and contrite hearts that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may receive from you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness;
Through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reign with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.


UoC Chaplaincy

#LiveLent #Day2

Holy God,
our lives are laid open before you:
rescue us from the chaos of sin and through the dear of your Son
bring us healing and make us whole in Jesus Christ our Lord.
