Our Prayer for Monday
Schools and colleges, children and young people
We pray for all those involved in the shaping of young lives.
We give God thanks for the sacrifice and commitment of teachers and all those involved in serving children and young people in education.
We pray that all might be nurtured and cared for and that every needful resource would be made available – that all lives can flourish even in these difficult times and that no-one would be overlooked.

A Few Words From Revd David
This Sunday Revd Nicky will be leading us in our 11am Zoom Service.
The lectionary reading is about a wedding at Cana where St John’s Gospel says Jesus performed his first miracle. Weddings are occasions of joy, laughter, fun and celebration with family and friends. 'Weddings' and 'feasts' are images that are referred to frequently in the New Testament referring to the Kingdom of God and when Jesus returns for his 'bride', that is us his church.
For those of us who have found lockdown 3 miserable (definitely me), I am heartened that a day is coming soon when we will meet together in person once again in our churches and celebrate and worship the living God, lifting up the name of the Lord Jesus. In the meantime let's keep praying, and keep encouraging each other by Zoom, telephone and email and waving across the street to each other with a smile; generous encouragement lifts our spirits no end, it glorifies God and turns each other’s water into wine!
