Please pray that we may be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit, compassionate to those we seek to serve and creative and collaborative in our work together,” says The Rev’d Loretta Tyler-Moss

"Our prayer was that God would be glorified, that people would come (albeit not too many at once), and our unity in Christ would be infectious and people would leave knowing that belonging to a small parish church can be a life-giving thing," (The Rev'd Rick Gummow, September 2023)

Pass it on before you pass on

“The motto of the Allora Men’s Shed is ‘Pass it on before you pass on’. I appreciate their characteristic rural matter-of-factness and generosity. Their motto recognises the value of what people bring to the group and that everyone has something to share with others — some expertise or genius to offer,” says The Rev’d Matthew Skelton from The Parish of Allora-Clifton
