This week’s Pew Sheet

“I am the living bread that came down from heaven.  Whoever eats this bread will live forever”.                       John, Ch. 6, vs. 51.

This week we especially hold in our prayers:

All affected by the earthquake in Lombok and surrounding areas in Indonesia:  Pray particularly for those who may still be buried and those that are trying to rescue them amid further aftershocks.
– Eastleigh Basics Bank, as they are going through a time of change and are still urgently looking for staff and volunteers.  Pray that someone may be moved to take action to help with this work.
– Derek and Val:  with thanksgiving for their long and happy marriage as they celebrate their 40th Wedding Anniversary on 11th August.
– All young people who are expecting A level results this coming week:  especially those that are connected to this Church.  Pray that they will not be anxious about their results and will understand what the next steps are in their lives.
– The continuing life of our Church, praying especially for:

  • Rev’ds. Arthur Croad and Pam Goddard, leading our Holy Communion services on 12th August, and for Chris Hill leading our Informal Evening Worship that day.
  • Those of our Church family on holiday at this time.  Pray that they will stay safe and return rested and energised by their experiences.
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 remember those who have died at this time of year, including those known and loved by us, and particularly remembering:
RIP.
