The Sunday next before Lent

Prayer team: There is a prayer tree next to the votive candle stand for prayer requests. Request tags are available next to the tree or from our welcomers. You can either drop these into the basket at the back of church or attach them to the tree, and we will pray for your request. We do ask, though, that you remove the request once prayer is no longer required. We have a team of people available each Sunday who would be pleased to sit with you and pray for your needs. If you would like private prayer at home, please contact Carol Sharman (01536725759), who will be pleased to arrange a house visit.
