Prayer Post

We pray:

  • with faith for the sick and the recovering and for those waiting – and all who care for them
  • with confidence for all who will be travelling in these coming weeks
  • with longing for a peace in all areas of conflict in our world
  • with gratitude for our 4 key volunteers working on the Refugee Project as this project continues to develop
  • with joy for our (currently 8) Confirmation candidates: Anthoinette Brian Christopher Jordan Laurine Philippa Ruby Tracey and the two joining us from Heidelberg as well as Davy and Eliott awaiting their baptism
  • with faith – which part of the world will you pray for this week ?

We have a new date for Bishop David travelling to Stuttgart for our Confirmation service – Sunday 19th June – all being well !
Do pray for our candidates and their families. There is still time for any others to join this group (this offer closes on 30. April)  –
