Safeguarding

We are hearing the concerned views of some of our church members, and as such are seeking discussion and clarity with the Diocese of Coventry, regarding the unintentional impact the safeguarding policy is having in our community. As a church, we are thankful for, and value all of our volunteers, and the wonderful services they provide for us and the wider community, and are seeking to safeguard all.

POWER OF POSITIVE PRAYER

 

Prayer Points for this week.

Please pray for the Meeting on 14th March with Tim Mitchell with members of the MLT and all those involved with putting the Parish Profile together. We will receive the results of the NCD questionnaire which was recently done. Pray that these are encouraging and a positive outcome to add to our profile as a Parish.

For the 1st Prayer lunch on Tuesday 14th March at the home of Rosemary & Alan Tostevin between 12 & 2pm. Please feel free to join us for homemade soup & Rolls. We will be praying for our journey through this interregnum and for certain situation and people who are taking on extra responsibilities during this time.

Thank you

 


PRAYER FOCUS

During the interregnum we would like to encourage as many people as possible to participate in a CALL TO PRAYER as we seek a new Rector.

Below are 3 suggested ways in which you may like to get involved.

1)  COMMIT TO PRAY for all those involved in putting together the ‘Church Profile’ and the team responsible for choosing the new Rector by signing up to the PRAYER DIARY at the back of the church. The more people that sign up to pray on a particular day of the week the better.

2) Consider participating in a monthly SOUP AND PRAYER LUNCH on 14th March, 11th April, 2nd May, 13th June, 11th July from 12.00 noon to 2.00pm  Come and go as you please.

3) If you are part of a CHURCH GROUP that already meets regularly please set aside time during the meeting to pray specifically for the interregnum.

REGULAR UPDATES OF TOPICS FOR PRAYER WILL BE ON THE WEEKLY NEWS SHEET
