   Almighty God,
   whose Son revealed in signs and miracles
   the wonder of your saving presence:
   renew your people with your heavenly grace,
   and in all our weakness
   sustain us by your mighty power;
   through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
   who is alive and reigns with you,
   in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
   one God, now and for ever.

Merton Citizens
Merton Citizens (part of South London Citizens) is an alliance of organisations – churches, mosques, schools, and hospitals – working together to make a difference in our borough. Merton Citizens builds the capacity of people to participate in public life, to act together for the common good, to win change, and to strengthen civic institutions in the process. Our parish is one of 15 institutions involved in work around various areas – housing, mental health, litter, and welcoming refugees. We are excited to be involved in this inspiring project, which is part of a nationwide Citizens movement that has been organising communities for several years.

For latest updates see the Merton Citizens Twitter feed.
