After an anxious time, difficulties over selling Andy & Jane’s cottage in Norfolk have been resolved and hopefully things can now begin to move ahead. They see this progress as an answer to prayer and thank everyone for praying. God is faithful.
Please pray for:
- An awareness for us all of God’s presence guiding and strengthening us, as we begin another year.
- The church meeting this morning to discuss the proposal to appoint an interim minister.
- Wisdom for all in positions of leadership and authority, in the church and the world.
- The people of Zimbabwe suffering significant hardship, that leaders will make wise decisions and positive change will come soon.
- Those working in health and care services at this extremely busy and stressful time of year.
Our Mission Focus in January is Scripture Union which aims to provide opportunities for young people to explore the Bible, respond to Jesus and grow in faith. Last month the Queen attended a service of thanksgiving as Scripture Union marked 150 years of ministry; see Songs of Praise Sunday 14th January (BBC1 4.30pm).
