I found this poem when I was researching the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and my sermon on the 18th January. It seems so applicable to all of us gathered here wanting to worship God in English, to be in a community growing in faith and love and serving God with all our gifts and skills. Caroline.
God of our past, you have brought us together
from different traditons, each called to serve you,
each with much to learn, feeling in need of
your grace. We thank you for calling us.
God of our present, you bring us together in
fellowship with you, and each other. We learn
from sharing our gifts, accepting new challenges
and daring new ways.
God of our future, you send us out to serve you in
ways we cannot yet imagine. We trust you for our
lives, whatever we do, wherever you lead us. We
ask you to bless us as we go forth in your name.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer;
One God for all time, for eternity.

Our church, ‘The Congregations of All Saints Vendée (ASV)’ serves the English speaking community in the Vendée and neighbouring Deux-Sèvres: both residents and visitiors.
With the invaluable cooperation of the Roman Catholic Church we have the use of their churches at Puy de Serre (east) , La Chapelle Achard (south-west) and La Chapelle Palluau (north). For the locations of these worship centres see the panel on the right of this page.
