Lord, you have taught us

that all our doings without love are nothing worth:

send your Holy Spirit

and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love,

the true bond of peace and of all virtues,

without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.

Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.


Post Communion

Loving Father,

we thank you for feeding us at the supper of your Son:

sustain us with your Spirit,

that we may serve you here on earth

until our joy is complete in heaven,

and we share in the eternal banquet

with Jesus Christ our Lord.

Laura is married to Martin and so we very much look forward to welcoming them both to our church family very soon.

Remembrance Day

Would anyone in the congregation like to knit poppies to decorate the church for       Remembrance Day? It is 100 years since the end of the First World War, and our poppies are very old and tatty, so some new ones would be a fitting tribute to all who lost their lives. Please see me if you are interested.                      Carol Dexter


We Need Your Help - Please see Julie or Ian Swinton to give 1 hour

We all lead busy lives, but please spare 1 hour to help make our forthcoming events a success.

Celebrate King's Lynn in the Walks (by the railway crossing in Tennyson Ave) on Saturday June 9th. We need people to come and spend 1 hour supervising an activity - either Hook-a-duck, Ping Pong Bowls, or make a bead bracelet between 10am to 4pm. Alternatively, if you are feeling brave, why not join the team sharing the Good News with the people of Lynn and telling them how wonderful we are at St Faith’s.Finally, please donate any packs of Haribo mini sweets or small 'pocket-sized' gifts e.g. erasers, pencils etc. that can be given out at Celebrate. The event is free and we cannot charge for any prizes, but last year we gave out 450 packs of sweets to children. So please start collecting, your donations are really important. There will be a box at the back of church for any donations.Thank you so much for helping at either of the events. We cannot run them without you and the hour of time you give is vital and much appreciated.
