Prayer Relay for 21st February (Crosby Garrett UC) and Nellie Cowey

As a fellowship of 6 or 7 regular worshippers, for whom advancing years is a real problem, we struggle with what we might do as part of the Prayer Relay.


Yet we give thanks that:

we can hold the Prayer Baton for a week, as part of our Association of churches;

we share in worship, when we can, with our friends at the village Anglican church, whose problems echo ours.


Please pray:

for two of our number, one now unable to attend worship and the other wheelchair bound after a time in hospital;

that we retain the desire to keep our church doors open and the lights on, as a sign of witness.

Ministers: Rev Phil Drew (Methodist) and Mr Donald Marston (Baptist)

We have also been asked to pray for Nellie Cowey, for her family and for her church family at Westoe Road in South Shields; Nellie is in hospital with a bleed on the brain, from which she is not expected to recover.

Nellie has worshipped all her life at Westoe Road. She became a Deacon there in 1936 (aged 21) and is now a Life Deacon. She has been a faithful servant to both our Association and the wider Union and has served on many NBA and BUGB committees. Nellie celebrated her 100th Birthday last December.
