PRAYER OUR CHURCH COMMUNITY - We remember those who are not as young or as strong as they once were: especially Mary Watson and those known personally to us. We continue to lift up those who need healing and include: Peter Coopland, Geoff and Dorothy Proffitt, Julia Brotherton; Pat Howarth, William Hartley, Daphne Dale, Anthony Bigg (Nicola's Father). May they feel the warmth and healing power of Jesus.
