Church Prayer – Padgate

We pray for Padgate as it develops a new strategy for growth and as it starts to change the way things are done to implement the strategy.  For the team in the church leading it.  For the church’s ongoing mission and service among the local community.  We pray that through all that happens, people there will come to experience you in new and more wonderful ways.  We pray that you will continue to inspire people in Padgate to spread your love; to grow in faith; to bear witness to the living Chris; and to seek to worship you in new and inspiring ways.
Ministers:  Revd. Mark Coles & Deacon Helen Coleman
