Praying for the Community

 

There is a Prayer Box on the wall outside the Chapel. This is for any member of our Community - that is from any village in the area - to be able to drop in the name of someone they would like us to pray for.  We don't need to know the details, just a first name is sufficient.  That person will be included in our time of prayer on the following Sunday.

 

In addition, at 09:30am on the first Sunday of the mont, there will bea half hour of prayer specifically for the Community.  Anyone may join us for a time of quiet or simple spoken prayer.  Our normal 10:30am service will follow after a cuppa.
