Children’s attendance sheet: A reminder to parents to sign the attendance sheet at the back of church if you think you will want to apply to a church school.  This is the way in which we fill in the school forms.

 

For your prayers, please:

Let us pray for God's people in every land, that we would be renewed in trust in God’s word and, guided and empowered by his Spirit, follow his paths and not the ways of the world.

Let us pray for all those to be ordained deacon and priest in the Church of God over the next two weeks and for all those who serve as lay or ordained ministers, that they would be people of prayer, affirmed in their vocation, and given heavenly wisdom and a pastoral heart.

Let us continue to pray for our young people that they would grow in faith in Jesus, fulfil his will for their lives and grow into the men and women of God he calls them to be.  Let us pray for all parents in their responsibility to nurture their children.  

Let us pray for all those in positions of governmental power, economic strength and media influence, that God would turn their hearts towards the common good and give them his wisdom, compassion and strength.  

Let us pray for all those who in mind, body or spirit are in need of God's healing and wholeness, for nothing is impossible for God.  Let us pray for Alison, Andrzej, Ronnie, Betty, Simone, Sylvia, Annette, Joyce, Christopher, Moira and Beth.

 

Let us pray for all who mourn, remembering those who have died recently, among them Maureen Costello, and those whose anniversary falls at this time, among them Sydney Comfort, Jean Hampshire, Barbara Post, Ray Bennett and Alfred Lafford.

 

God bless you richly,

 

Pete
