We give thanks to God for the life and witness of Shirley Benn and Ivy Hookham (Trish Mortley’s mum) and pray for their families as they grieve this temporary separation.

We pray for Chris Ivey and all those on staff at St Andrew’s College who are part of our church in their busy last weeks at school.

Give thanks to God for Kevin and Sandy’s visit and for the clarity of Kevin’s five talks. Pray that through them, we may be equipped to give an answer to those who ask us about why we live for Jesus as we do. Pray that they will have an ongoing impact as we share the links to the videos with friends and family and that through the talks, people who are not yet believers, may see more clearly the reality of who Jesus is and his very great love for them.

Pray for the appointment of an associate minister – that the Lord will clear any obstacles and make an appointment possible for the start of the new year.

Pray for all our Christmas opportunities – Gingerbread house night, Christmas Spectacular, Traditional lessons and carols, Carols, and the Christmas services themselves. Pray that we will proclaim the good news with joy and gladness and that the Lord would draw people to himself.
