Prayers for a priest taking up a new role

These ‘prayers for a priest’ are for the Reverend Gill Barnett whose final service with us was today, Sunday 30th September. She takes up a new post from 21st October as Priest-in-Charge of Healey & Hamer and St. Ann, Belfield.

Today’s service was also a celebration of all the baptisms that had taken place in our two churches over the last few years. So, the intercessions reflect that too.

Alexa: Who is God?

A few months ago, the CofE launched its Alexa ‘skill’, enabling users to ask the Church of England for prayers, explanations of faith and information about local church events and services.

“We’re thrilled to be launching the Alexa skill, to enable regular churchgoers and those exploring faith to connect with God in another way and at a time that’s right for them,” the Archbishop of York said.

How do you do it?

It’s easy! Once enabled you can launch the Church of England skill by saying: “Alexa, open the Church of England”
