Item of thanks: for God's continued guidance, provision and wisdom during the recent pastoral vacancy and the opportunity to mark the conclusion of that with Dave Tubby's on 8th September. We would also value prayers for God to be at the forefront of all that we do and share together as we embark on this exciting new chapter.
Item of prayer: Pastoral care is such an important part of church life, and this is something that we are developing together in the autumn. We have been encouraged by those who want to be involved in developing something, so just a sense that God will guide us to develop something that works well within the congregation and means that those on the periphery and who are isolated are fully supported within the church.
Thanks item for the community: that the local councillors have expressed interest in engaging with and working alongside us to support the wider community practically.
Prayer item for the community: that the good work of the local Churches Together in Heaton would act as a springboard for the area to be spiritually transformed through Jesus.
