Come and See

Join One of Come and See Sessions

Come and See sessions invite new people to discover Christ and helps those with an established faith on their discipleship journey. Over the five weeks of Lent, we will help everyone explore the Lord’s Prayer afresh, to contemplate the words and ask what they might mean for each of us.

  • Week one 2nd March: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name
  • Week two 9th March: Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven
  • Week three 16th March: Give us today our daily bread
  • Week four 23rd March: Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us, lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil
  • Week five 13th March: For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen
  • Week 6 13th April: Introduction to the Contemplative Toolkit

Come and See works for people with an active faith and also those exploring Christianity for the first time. The materials invite both Christians and enquirers alike to deepen their knowledge of and relationship with God. The oOnline Come and See discussion groups based around the Lord’s Prayer take place on Wednesdays, at 4:30pm on 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th March and the 13th April, with our Team Rector, Toby Wright. This will be on zoom, Meeting ID: 999 9176 2911 | Passcode: 836069

Lord’s Prayer: Contemporary Language

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done,

On earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us,

Lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours

Now and forever. Amen

Lord’s Prayer: Traditional Language

Our Father, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name;

Thy Kingdom come,

Thy will be done;

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation;

But deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory

For ever and ever. Amen
