Church Prayer – Antrobus

Please pray for the Methodist and St. Mark’s churches working together and the Primary school in Antrobus, all maintaining our Christian presence in the village.  We are so blessed to live in the countryside, especially so during the Summer months and we thank God for his wonderful creation.  We remember that we truly are caretakers of this land and strive to be good neighbours to each other.  Please pray for us as we join in local events over the season, such as the Village Rose Queen Fete, and that we may show Jesus’ love by the example of the way we live each day.

Fund raising for Growth: Sunshine Bags

The Fund raising team for our Church growth plan have developed a program of exciting and interesting fundraising events for the next few months. Today, they are starting with a “Sunshine bag”.  The idea is you place 10 pence in the bag if the sun shines on that day.

If you would like to participate then please pick up a wonderfully made bag from inside church. Each bag has a different motif.

If you can, then please take two bags and give one bag to someone who is NOT a member of our church and is willing to help. A friend, a neighbours or a colleague at work? Let’s try to share the cost of fund raising so the burden doesn’t reside with just our church members and also share awareness of our church.

Church Prayer – St. James

We would ask you to pray for our Minister, Jenny, for Trudy and Wayne, our local preachers, for our worship leaders and all who hold positions of responsibility at St. James. May they be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit to work to the father’s glory!  We lift up our children and young people, praying they will grow in faith and faithfulness and we think of our elderly members who are ill or housebound and are no longer able to join in fellowship.  We commend to the Lord our pastoral visitors who keep in touch with them, helping them to feel they are still part of our congregation.
Minister: Rev Jenny MacGregor.
