A prayer on the occasion of the launch of the Victory Ground project

Father God

With great joy we thank you for this site, and for the blessing that it has been to so many people.

We thank you for South Lee School, for Bury St Edmunds Cricket Club, Sporting 87 football club and St Edmundsbury Council

We thank you for those who have had this vision to develop a sports hall, changing rooms and cricket pavilion; and for those who have enabled the vision to be turned into reality. We thank you for the Borough councillors and officers, for all that they have done to make this possible. We thank you for the generosity of all who have given time and money to the project. We do thank you for the lawyers, architects, engineers and builders – and for the gifts that you have given them.

We thank you for showing us what is possible when we work together.

We now ask, as the foundations are laid, for your continued guidance, provision and particularly for your protection for the builders. And we pray that this building and this site will continue to bring blessing to the children of South Lee School and to the people of our town and borough

We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son, who has given us all things and who gave us himself, that we might know you and your eternal joy
