This prayer calendar draws together general topics for each day, specific dioceses in the worldwide Anglican Church, parishes in our own diocese and geographical areas of our parish so that each day has a unique collection of topics for prayer.
The parish boundary and areas can be seen on an enlarged version of the map by clicking the image to the right.
A new feature on the website: the Crookham Diary. I’ll be starting it off with a posting every few days or so, but we hope that eventually others will contribute too. The aim is to show, in a fairly light-hearted way, how life and faith work together.

Thought for the day
And thanks for all the answers to my question about what you’re thankful for; predominantly health, freedom, interesting books, love, being able to run and swim, family, the trees in blossom, friends, internet, firebowl, countryside, ability to help others, greenhouse, vaccine, prayer, bird song, my dog, and a thousand other things (not really, just 32 things).
This isn’t just idle curiosity on my part, it is serious; one of the top six pieces from the NHS on dealing with stress:
Allow yourself some positivity
Take time to think about the good things in your life.
Each day, consider what went well and try to list 3 things you're thankful for.
Eventually it becomes a habit, second nature, a way to power through our peoblems.
Have a good day,
Vicar of Crookham
