THY KINGDOM COME starts Thursday 30th May and will be launched at the Communion Service for Ascension Day in Hutton. This is an international call to pray for people to come to know Jesus. We will be asked to pray for 5 people we know to come to know Him. On 26th May we will be giving out booklets to be used each day from 30th May - Sunday 9th June - which is Pentecost. In each church we will have a prayer tree where you can hang the first names of people you are praying for. Please let's all be part of this wave of prayer and pray expectantly that God would be at work in the lives of these people.

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.
