This Week's Prayer Theme:

10th. Nov. 2019

On Remembrance Sunday, we think about all those affected by armed conflict, past and present.

Please pray;

- for those remembering loved ones, lost in war.

- for those living with life- changing injuries, as a result of armed conflict.

- for Christians, serving in the  Forces, to be a good witness to their comrades. 

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God".

Matthew 5; 9.

This Week's Readings:

Mikah 4:1-5  (NIV) 

The Mountain of the Lord

1In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream to it.
2Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
3
He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.
4Everyone will sit under their own vine and under their own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the Lord Almighty has spoken.
5All the nations may walk in the name of their gods, but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever.


At the church we regularly pray for the needs of our local community and its people, as well as the needs of the wider world. If you have any particular prayer requests, please contact us. These requests will be handled confidentially.
