Points for Prayer- 

For those in need at this time.  For all members to grow in faith, and grow closer in our relationships.

For the church building, so that the drains are fixed by the City Council, that we can fix the stained glass window, paint the church, that we can build at the back and have better toilets and meeting facilities.  For protection from the evil one.

“We grow by serving”!  All members and regular attenders at the church are prayerfully encouraged to be involved in at least one ministry in the church.
