St Columba's Crosspool

Open to God, Welcoming All

Stir up, we beseech thee O Lord

the wills of thy faithful people

that they, bringing forth the fruit of good works,

may of thee be plenteously rewarded

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(This prayer was traditionally said

on the last Sunday before Advent

which became known as “Stir-Up Sunday”

the day that people made their Christmas puddings!)
