Prayers for NSW and in particular Sydney.
Our love and prayers go out to our NSW friends, particularly in Sydney, as they face a serious upsurge in the numbers of Covid-19 sufferers, and isolate to help control the spread. In your isolation God is with you. Stay safe, stay home, and keep in touch with family and friends as much as you can
Love and peace, Rev'd Anne Kennedy (Australian President)

Seedtime and harvest
The weather, the mice, the grasshoppers – so much depends on chance for the sowers and reapers, the planters, pruners and pickers. Our lives, too, are subject to chance: whether we were travelling on a cruise ship at the beginning of the Covid pandemic or born near Bethlehem in 30AD to a family of shepherds or near a creekbed in Central Australia in 1863 or 1963 or 2003. Let us carefully examine the seeds of our Christian life. Let us rejoice in the harvest and plant the fruits of God’s gifts wisely and with abundant generosity.
He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. 2 Corinthians 9:10
St Alban’s Cathedral, Pretoria has a unique placement amongst the institutions of government. Members of the congregation will walk a prayer labyrinth at designated times through the precincts which house the offices of decision-makers and government technocrats whose decisions and work impact on the whole of the nation, the walkers upholding and supporting the workers in Prayer.
