to our churches
St Mary's Church in North Marston and St John the Baptist Church in Granborough are part of the Schorne Team of Parishes in the Claydon Deanery of the Diocese of Oxford. St Mary's Church is in Local Ecumenical Partnership with Methodist Church. Wesley Centre has a wonderful heritage of Methodist worship in North Marston and continues to be used for worship as well as many community events. Our churches are welcoming and friendly, offering a variety of worship experiences, seeking to know God in a deeper way and making His presence known in our lives and in our village communities. You are most welcome to join us for any of our services or special events.

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK
A prayer for the Middle East
God, hear our prayers for peace in the Middle East.
May all people in the region be protected, safe from harm.
We pray that this crisis will end now, with no further loss of life.
God, may the injured and distressed know your healing presence.
May the powerful and the decision-makers follow the paths of justice, mercy and peace.
We pray for recognition of the dignity and value of every life.
May the clamour of violence cease,
Replaced by the beating of swords into ploughshares.
God, in your name,
Prayer by Christian Aid
