Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.

                                                                                     Colossians, Ch. 3, vs. 15. 

We hold the following in prayer in the coming week:

All in the world who are caught up in wars: especially remembering those in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
– The charities that we are supporting:  as we declare our charitable giving from this Church for the past year.  Pray for these organisations, whose names are listed elsewhere on this website.
– The continuing life of our Church: praying especially today for:
Rev’ds. Peter Cornick and Christopher Blissard-Barnes as they visit us again on 28th January to lead our Communion Services;
Our Church Wardens:  who meet this week to continue the process of looking for a new Minister;
– All those who support and run the St Francis Rendezvous Café every fortnight:  Give thanks to God that this venture is proving successful;
