A prayer for our church

Heavenly Father,

We thank you that you have led us through this time of vacancy and given us Michael to be our new Vicar at St Thomas's.

Guide us by your Holy Spirit as we prepare for this new stage of our journey with you. Together may we discern your way for the future. Grant us Lord, the trust, strength, and courage to grow your kingdom in this place. Amen.

Appointment of new vicar

We are pleased to announce that the Revd Canon Michael Manley has been appointed as the next vicar of St Thomas's, St Anne's-on-the-Sea, subject to a satisfactory arrangement being made with the Diocesan Board of Finance regarding the payment of parish share and the usual safer recruitment checks. Michael is currently Canon Missioner at Carlisle Cathedral.

Please pray for Michael as he prepares to move house and to take up his new post. The Bishop of Blackburn will institute and the Archdeacon of Lancaster with induct Michael on Sunday 27 October 2024 at 3.00 pm at St Thomas's.
