'2023 And Beyond' Project

HOW YOU CAN HELP
Please can you make a commitment to support our appeal with a monthly pledge for the next three years?

Please use our Project Prayer in your own prayers as part of your support:

Living God, we bless you because you make your dwelling place the hearts of your faithful people. In your abundant love bless us with the gifts we need to be faithful stewards of St Mary Magdalene, Great Hampden. Help us to realise our vision for the future of our church. May we always be mindful of the coming kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom with you and the Holy Spirit be all honour and glory, now and forever. Amen.
