PRAYER

Prayer Requests – Please remember all those on our prayer list.

Please also keep Iris Chapple and family in your prayers following the sad passing away of Revd Richard Chapple last week. Rik was our minister for a number of years and is still remembered with great fondness.

Please pray for our Ministers Revd Paul Howes, Revd Alan Jenkins, Revd Ken Chalmers and Revd Steve Swann and all those who minister to the people of God.

Continue to pray for all others who are in any way troubled, lonely, unwell or bereaved and anyone else who needs our prayers.

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
