Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

These are the words of a traditional Anglican prayer called the Collect for Purity.  At St Thomas Mission, along with churches around the world, we include this prayer in our worship by saying it together near the beginning of a communion service.

In liturgical worship we kneel, stand, read, confess and pray together. We put together a series of short videos to help explain some of the history, symbolism, and theology behind what we do.  It is our hope that the information shared in these videos will be both informative and life-giving.
