Church Prayer – St. Philip’s

Father, we pray for St Philip’s at a time of change, as our Curate, Pete moves onto St Helens and we start our building project to convert the toilets and vestry. We pray a    blessing on Pete and his young family in their new ministry in St Helens. We pray that all building work will go smoothly and that applied for grants and fundraising will find the money to fund this project. We also pray for new initiatives – our Time Out Tuesday for young and old to engage and flourish; for young leaders to grow in faith and confidence and for work with the school.  Amen
Minister: Rev Sue Smith

Church Prayer  –  Sankey Valley Methodist Circuit

The Sankey Valley Circuit welcomes two presbyters new to the Circuit and we look forward to their ministry among us. We give thanks for Sian who joins us as a probationer presbyter having completed her training at Queen’s College. Sian comes from a background primarily of Welsh Methodism. Ruffin Binda and his family come to us from South Africa and face a significant cultural change. We pray that both ministers and their families will soon feel comfortable in their new homes and communities, and that we will learn from the new insights they have to share with us.

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.
Minister: Rev Iris Musgrove
