A list of resources needed for each idea and where to source them is included.

The Themes are:

You can download the whole document, individual sections and the templates from our Resources section

Please take time to regularly pray for the people listed on the Diocesan intercession calendar, our various events and our projects and include our Diocesan prayer in your branch meetings.
This prayer speaks to us in Oxford Diocese, affirming what God would have us do and challenging us to carry out his purpose.

MU Oxford Diocesan Prayer 2020

Faithful God,
we praise you for your steadfast love and the truth of your eternal word;
the rock on which we build our lives.
Give us new hope and the confidence to trust your promises,
that as we reach out in loving service to families both near and far,
we will find you already ahead of us,
bringing your Kingdom into being,
in every community,
in every family,
in every heart.
Amen
