The Collect
Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: graft in our hearts the love of your name, increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of your great mercy keep us in the same; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever..

Post Communion
Lord God, whose Son is the true vine and the source of life, ever giving himself that the world may live: may we so receive within ourselves the power of his death and passion that, in his saving cup,
we may share his glory and be made perfect in his love; for he is alive and reigns, now and for ever.

Ride and Stride
14th September 2024 The Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust Ride and Stride will be taking place on Saturday 14th September with churches in Northamptonshire taking part along with many more all over the country. Participants plan a route to walk, cycle, horse ride etc, on their own or in a group, visiting churches, many of which are open with people to welcome them and nearly all with basic free refreshments. St Lawrence Towcester is planning to be open between 10am and 6pm on the 14th September and we are looking to set up a rota of people willing to spend an hour or two in the church to welcome visitors. It is unlikely you will be inundated and you may not welcome anyone at all during your hour. Anyone interested in finding out more, please contact Val Hartley 01327 362049 or val.e.hartley@btinternet.com

St Lawrence Church Fete 
Once again a huge thank you to everyone who helped in so many ways to support our summer fetes and to those who attended. The final count for the St Lawrence fete has now exceeded £6500 including successful “matches fundraising” from Barclays. This is an amazing achievement and credit to all involved.

RIP Diary
If you need to make any changes or add any names the RIP diary it is in St Lawrence.

Please can we ask and remind people to refrain from dipping (intinction) their wafer into the wine when receiving communion. Those administering the chalice do not wish to cause upset at the communion rail. The reason for non-dipping policy is on the bishop’s advice and twofold: firstly one of hygiene and secondly because we have members who are gluten intolerant. If you feel unable to receive the wine from the chalice then receiving in one kind means you are making a valid communion. Thank you for your understanding.

Easton Neston Church and Churchyard visitors
If you have previously registered your number plate for access to visit St Mary's Easton Neston Church and Churchyard and it is not working the gate, please would you let Bev know on 01327 354385.
