"Since we have received God's reconciling love through Jesus Christ as Lord, we seek to reach out into the community in love, welcoming all without discrimination into God's family; to proclaim the Gospel faithfully in word and deed; to nurture all in faith and understanding; and to encourage each one to recognise and exercise their gifts, to the praise and glory of God and in the power of the Holy Spirit."
Parochial Church Council, St John the Baptist Danbury
Heavenly Father, increase the sense of community that binds us together. Bless the work of your church in this parish, that it may give a sense of identity to those who feel none, provide a refuge to those threatened by the world around them, and create a place of belonging where people may be welcomed, known as friends and valued as individuals. May we celebrate a faith that radiates forgiveness and acceptance through the gift of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen
