Grant to us, Lord, the peace of those who have learnt to serve you, the joy of those who are glad to obey you and the delight of those who rejoice in your praise; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Aidan of Lindisfarne (d. 651)
O God, who journeyed with Abraham,
laughed with Sara,
waited with Simeon,
rejoiced with Anna,
we thank you
for those who lives are lived in your presence
and for those who come to you later.
We ask your blessing on
those who work with older people
in church and in the community,
to maintain faith and bring fresh insights.
We pray for active older people
that, through Spirit filled grace,
they may continue to follow your call.
We pray for those whose lives move towards its conclusion,
that they may know your peace and behold your glory,
in Jesus' name. Amen.

The Vale of Aylesbury Methodist Circuit is a mutually supportive group of 18 Churches in the Vale of Aylesbury committed to a common purpose of channeling God's unchanging love for all people in our constantly changing world. The Circuit deploys a staff team of presbyters and lay persons -- under the leadership of Superintendent, Helen Kirk -- that work alongside numerous dedicated volunteers and in ecumenical partnership with churches from other denominations.
And although our churches and chapels vary greatly in age, size and style of architecture all have things in common: a desire to follow Jesus Christ and and to share his love in the communities in which we serve. To this end we offer worship in different styles, opportunities to deepen and share faith and the chance to work together on different projects, along with a warm welcome and genuine friendship. So please take the time to discover more about us here or even better — come and see us in person!
