This week’s Pew Sheet

They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.

                                                                                           Acts of the Apostles, Ch. 2, vs. 3.

This week we especially hold in our prayers:

– The hard work of those who have collected door to door during this Christian Aid Week: giving thanks for those who have donated and those who have collected, and praying for the successful use of the funds collected in aiding the neediest in the world.
– The medical teams in the Democratic Republic of Congo: fighting an outbreak of Ebola.
– The success of the school “Prayer Space” in our Church during the coming week.
– Prince Henry of Wales and his new wife Meghan: following their marriage on 19th May.
– The continuing life of our Church, praying especially for:

  • Rev’d. Kelvin Taylor, leading our Said Communion service at Pentecost, and Ian Clarke and Peter Rhodes as they lead Morning Worship on 20th May.
  • For Messy Church taking place during the afternoon of 20th May, and for all the other activities in this Church in this coming week.
All those known to us in our congregation and community who are in any kind of need at this time:  whether sick, awaiting test results, caring for relatives, mourning the loss of loved ones, or in any other kind of need, remembering especially all those notified to our prayer network.We pray particularly for our Churchwarden, Steve Williams, recovering slowly from his leg injury and praying that he is back on both feet soon.

We remember those who have died at this time of year, including those known and loved by us, and particualrly remembering.
