Happenings for October

[Keep scrolling to the end for items of interest]

The Foundation Stone for this church was laid in October 1878 (140 years ago) so that
people who lived on this side of the Port River cound attend Church and Sunday School.
St. Bede's continues to seek to nurture the soul of the Semaphore community as is reflected in the themes of worship this month.

Stained Glass Window of the Month
Please take some time to come in and look at the Dedication Window near the front porch
on the western wall of the church. Find the Semaphore landmarks in the picture and see who we

Prayers for the Month

A Prayer for Synod
Almighty and everlasting God,
give wisdom and understanding to the members of the Synod of the Diocese of Adelaide.
Teach us in all things to seek first your honour and glory.
May we perceive what is right, have courage to pursue it, and grace to accomplish it.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Prayer for Anglicare SA
God of Love,
We pray for the daily work of Anglicare SA:
For individuals, families and communities in whose life we share;
for our colleagues, networks and supports.
May we strive together to work for justice,
and show respect to every person we meet.
May we freely share in your desire for fullness of life for all,
in the present moment and in the time ahead. Amen.
