South London Citizens
South London Citizens have launched their second annual survey
of south Londoners' mental health and wellbeing. Please take part in the survey, and encourage your friends,
families and networks to do so, so that South London Citizens, and the groups they are working with,
can hear from as many voices as possible.
(31 July 2022)
There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering in church. The government suggests you continue to wear one
in crowded or enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.
The Parish Eucharist with Baptisms on 7 August (Eighth Sunday after Trinity) at Holy Trinity led by Simon can be viewed as
Service on 4 September (Twelfth Sunday after Trinity; Creationtide)
The Parish Eucharist at St John's will be led by Mark and will be uploaded to YouTube later in the day.
Services from previous weeks are on the
Merton Priory Parish YouTube channel
and listed on the 'Looking back' page.

Lord God, heavenly Father,
guide and direct us by your Holy Spirit,
that we may not forget our sins and be filled with pride,
but continue in daily repentance and renewal,
seeking our comfort only
in the blessed knowledge
that you will be merciful to us,
forgive us our sins
and grant us eternal life;
through your beloved Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
