Love your neighbour as yourself and do to others as you’d have them do to you,” are the seeds from which we grow.

Dear Lord, guide us with your love to:

C are for everyone in the community and the wider world

H eal the past and grow the future

R espect one another

I nspire one another to be the best we can

S trengthened by your Holy Spirit

T ogether we are a family and will do our best to live the way you taught us.
