South London Citizens
South London Citizens have launched their second annual survey of south Londoners' mental health and wellbeing. Please take part in the survey, and encourage your friends, families and networks to do so, so that South London Citizens, and the groups they are working with, can hear from as many voices as possible.

Service on 4 September (Twelfth Sunday after Trinity; Creationtide)
The Parish Eucharist at St John's will be led by Mark and will be uploaded to YouTube later in the day.

Prayer
Almighty and eternal God,
you have graciously created all things.
We thank you for giving us sound bodies
and for preserving us from the power of the evil foe.
Help us to rightly use our ears and tongues,
to hear your Word diligently and devoutly
and to praise you for your grace
so that no one will be offended by our words,
but that all may be strengthened in faith;
through your beloved Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God, now and forever.
