Church Prayer – New Song Network

This was written just after Easter which, of cause, is still in our minds. We would like continued prayer for all those children who came to the Easter egg hunt and especially those from whom Easter had previously been just about chocolate eggs and bunnies. We prayer for their families and the continuing contact we may have with them. Please pray too for the changes in the NS leadership team and the future plans that New Song has to further the Kingdom. We also hold in prayer those going through difficult and stressful times – anxiety seems to be something affecting a lot of people and we pray that God holds us close as we struggle with whatever is currently affecting us. Every situation is different but is of equal value so we pray for the strength to cope. Pray for our minister Revd. Linda Bishop and her ministry.

Church Prayer  –  Heath Street

We pray for the Church at Heath Street and we give thanks to God for the blessings he has given to us. A steady but growing congregation, reflecting the growing diversity within our community. The growth of our work among young people, both in the junior church but also through the ever popular Messy Church and our relationship with those who run the Youth Club as they use our premises, may they continue to grow and develop in this important work. We give thanks, as we look around our congregation that we, whilst ever conscious of our financial burdens are helped to maintain our real focus, the focus of Christ on the needs of the community around us. We give thanks for the time and dedication given by Rev Iris Musgrove as she nears her conclusion to the work with us here at Heath Street and the Sankey Valley Circuit. We pray for Gods blessings in all she does in the future.

Circuit Charity

The Circuit Charity for the last two years has been Parkinson UK. We are now looking for a new charity to support from September 2018. Proposals are invited from all circuit churches (one from each church). The proposal should be on an A4 page and give a brief outline of the charity and why the circuit should consider adopting it. The circuit Leadership Team will consider the proposals and a maximum of three will be shortlisted for consideration. The 3 churches whose proposals are shortlisted will be asked to give a short presentation at the June Circuit meeting and a vote will then be taken at a meeting to decide which one will be accepted as the circuit charity for the next two years. Proposals should be submitted to Jane Otterson, Senior Circuit Steward, by 1st June preferably by e-mail. mailto:janeotterson@gmail.com
