A prayer for this week:-                      (Collect for Thy Kingdom Come)

Almighty God,
your ascended Son has sent us into the world
to preach the good news of your kingdom:
inspire us with your Spirit
and fill our hearts with the fire of your love,
that all who hear your Word may be drawn to you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Church of England is working on new guidance about what the gradual easing of restrictions may look like; everything from safe funerals, weddings, contractors in church buildings and more. Church buildings remain closed at this time; although prayer is now being offered again in Acle (by the Rector) and Reedham (at least weekly by Nicholas and Kati Cowen).
