A prayer for Her Majesty the Queen on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee celebration of her Accession:
Almighty God, the fountain of all goodness,
bless our Sovereign Lady, Queen Elizabeth,
and all who are in authority under her;
that they may order all things
in wisdom and equity, righteousness and peace,
to the honour and glory of your name
and the good of your Church and people;
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.
SILENT DISCO FUN! The children and youth of Bampton had a fabulous time dancing and playing games with the wonderful Jozzy (DJ from Spree), who also gave his moving testimony. We had over 50 children attend and 20 teenagers! It was a great success, and we are grateful to all our helpers who came along to the Community Centre on 8th January. Thank you all! Thank you so much to the PCC and church community for kindly agreeing for this event to be funded by the Bampton PCC Mission Fund. This event was gratefully received after such a long time being unable to attend group events and a huge help to the children’s social development and mental wellbeing.
