NBA Prayers for Owton Manor Baptist Church (Hartlepool)

We give thanks for the faithful ministry of Maurice Matthison and pray that God will bless him and Marianne as they settle into the next stage of their lives.

We give thanks for the continuing fellowship connections with the three other Baptist churches in the town.

We pray that God will grant wisdom to the remaining church leaders as they seek God's direction in selecting a replacement minister.

We ask for the success of the joint churches initiative in regards to the street pastors, breakfast club and the Alpha group due to start in September.

 We ask that as Churches Together we might effectively live and declare the gospel across the town.

Minister: Rev Maurice Matthison
