St.Wilfrid’s is the Church of England ( i.e. “Anglican,” or “Episcopalian”) Parish Church for Northenden, a district in the Wythenshawe area of south Manchester, UK.
Our aim is to honour God as we worship him, using both traditional and modern C of E forms of service; to share the good news of what Jesus Christ taught about life, God, and our relationship with him, and what he achieved for us through his death and resurrection; to offer support, spiritual or practical, to people in times of need or crisis, and in the normal routine and adventure of living; to encourage people to serve God in and through their daily lives, whether in their church activities, or in their “normal” life in work, family and community; to help people grasp more clearly the Christian understanding of life, the world and everything, through discussion and teaching.
Prayer for the month
Almighty God, who have given rain and sun to all people,
good and bad, rich and poor, Jew and Gentile;
We pray to you for all who suffer persecution and discrimination because of their
faith and beliefs, and especially for your household the church. We pray for those
who bring humanitarian relief; we pray for the restraint of those who work evil;
we pray for respect and understanding between different groups, and truth and integrity
in the reporting of events.
We weep with Christ over war-torn Jerusalem, and the pains of a divided world, and
long for a world where people may serve and worship you without fear, in holiness
and right living.
For the sake of Christ, our Prince of peace. Amen.
