Prayer Points for 28th April
MID-DURHAM GROUP (Bishop Auckland BC and Hamsterley BC)
Our Pastor/Moderator, Ray Richardson who has served us so well for almost three years.Our many visiting preachers who bless us with their varied styles of ministry.Friendship and fellowship between the two churches.Continued fellowship with our Anglican and Methodist friends in Hamsterley.
Those within the fellowship suffering illness or undergoing radical medical treatments.The deacons as they take on extra work.A way forward as we anticipate the departure of our highly valued Pastor/ Moderator and for Regional Minister, John Claydon, as he helps and advises us.Ray and his wife Kathleen as they consider how the Lord may be leading them.Still some concern at Hamsterley over small numbers at Bible Studies.(partly due to ill health of regulars).The need to continue to encourage and support each other.The communities in which we are placed, that they come to value this time together.
Moderator: Rev Ray Richardson
