We are currently holding          special prayer time at the beginning of our services      to pray  a new minister

will be with us soon.

Dear Lord,

We are living through difficult times but are reassured knowing that you are with us. Hopefully we are seeing a blink of light at the end of the tunnel but we need to continue to be patient, so that we do not undo all the hard work already done.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Please help us to do this Lord.

We pray for all our NHS staff especially those working at the front line during this virus.  Keep them safe Lord,  we thank you for their skill, dedication and bravery as they face this crisis.  A crisis never before witnessed in our lifetime.

We pray for all those who have lost a loved one during this time of lockdown.  A time when they have been unable to sit and comfort those who are dying during their last days and hours,  a time when they cannot lay them to rest with friends and family by their sides.  Heavenly Father, continue to give them the strength and comfort they so need.

We pray for all who are  separated from family members. Sons and daughters who cannot visit elderly parents, mums and dads separated from their children, and grandparents and grandchildren who long to see each other.

We thank you Lord for the technology that has been able to keep some of those families in touch with each other through skype and face chat etc.

We pray for our church friends Lord.  We miss meeting with them every Sunday for worship and for all the other activities we share together.  We thank you Lord that Rev. Ken Russell is keeping us together with his weekly online service, something we look forward to very much.  We pray Lord that it won’t be long until we can all meet and worship together in our beautiful church once again.

Amen.

HOW TO FIND OUR CHURCH.

Special Note

Starting  date 17th May        Call  01786 641089.
There will be a new message every week for you to listen to.


God’s blessings to each and every one of you. 

Until we can meet together again, stay safe.

Refuse to be discouraged, refuse to be distressed,
For when we are despondent, our life cannot be blessed.
For doubt and fear and worry close the door to faith and prayer,
For there’s no room for blessings when we’re lost in deep despair.
So remember when your troubled with uncertainty and doubt,
It is best to tell Our Father what our fear is all about.
For unless we seek His guidance when troubled times arise,
We are bound to make decisions that are twisted and unwise.
But when we view our problems, through the eyes of God above,
misfortunes turn to blessings and hatred turns to love.
