  • Our new pastoral care groups at St Paul’s (called Tithings) will become a valued way of offering each other support and encouragement on the road as disciples
  • For new leaders and volunteers to respond to God’s call on their lives
  • For each Church to continue to look as if we believe what we sing, enjoy what we do and can’t imagine being anywhere else on a Sunday morning and during the week. That we are in the place God calls us to be and the places He sends us into in his name and in his Spirit.

In the Deanery please pray for:

  • St Eligius Church, Alpha Course starting on September 24th
