God our redeemer, you have delivered us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of your Son: grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life, so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy;

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.


Post Communion

God our Father, whose Son Jesus Christ gives the water of eternal life:

may we thirst for you, the spring of life and source of goodness, through him who is alive and reigns, now and for ever.


Thursday 18th MAY Ascension Day


Grant, we pray, almighty God,

that as we believe your only begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to have ascended into the heavens, so we in heart and mind may also ascend and with him continually dwell, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.


Post communion

God our Father, you have raised our humanity in Christ and have fed us with the bread of heaven:

mercifully grant that, nourished with such spiritual blessings, we may set our hearts in the heavenly places, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

18th Ascension Day

As per Christian belief, Ascension Day marks day 40 after Jesus Christ's Resurrection — counting Easter Day as day one — and is the day Christ ascended into heaven. This day is very important for Christians, ranking right up there with other Christian festivals like Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost.

19th New Moon

The new moon phase is a more introspective time and represents new beginnings as we plant seeds for the future. It's a good time to set clear intentions for the month ahead, clarify your goals, start new projects, and acknowledge your growth since the previous new moon.

The next Benefice Holy Communion service is on 21st May, 10.30 at Evenley

We welcome you all to attend and join in with the celebrations along with friends from our neighbouring churches when we all come together to share hymns & prayers & give thanks for Christ’s ascension to heaven to take his seat at the right hand of God,
