We are also joining together in the Thy Kingdom Come national prayer initiative from 13th-23rd May. Our theme for the year is # Real Love

Praise God for the continued faithful giving by members of the church-together we have managed a surplus in the year end to 31/3/21 -this is amazing-thankyou so much.

***************************************************************

Pray that we will take to heart the teaching and challenge from the Weekend that Changed the World Event last week.

The call was to believe in the God of miracles and that no matter how bleak our personal ‘Good Friday’ may look, our Resurrection Sunday is on its way.

We were called to love God with all our hearts and our neighbour as ourselves. To get our vertical relationship right with the Lord and to see everything else flow out from there.

We were called to live in the experience of Resurrection power but to do so, we had to ‘crucify’ the flesh and get into prayer room and seek God’s face.

We were asked the question ‘Do you love Jesus? That our response should not be mere words ie ‘Yes’ but that the truth would be seen in our practical actions in serving and loving others.

Pray for the staff team of Jo Masters; Nicola Baldwin; Tess Strode; John Fowley; Luke Crompton; Kevin Foster,
