PRAYER CHAIN - If you need prayer for yourself or another then there is a team of people ready to pray. For Locking, please contact Christine Sceeny phone 822331 or for Hutton Kay Cole phone 811424 and they will send out the prayer request. It would be lovely to know how the person we are praying for is getting on, or whether they still need more prayer. It is a great encouragement for us all to hear that God is answering our prayers, please send feedback to Christine or Kay. Thank you.

Archbishop Justin has often said that without prayer there is no renewal in the church. One of the key ways in which Anglicans ensure they pray for one another is through a calendar of prayer, which enables us to regularly and faithfully look beyond our own boundaries and what is in the news, and to pray our way around the ministries of our brothers and sisters. January’s DIOCESAN PRAYER CALENDAR is now available at Some copies are printed and are in church - please take your copy!
