Please hold in your prayers all those preparing to be ordained and especially those to be ordained in the Diocese of Gloucester, including Rebecca Spear, to be ordained Deacon for the Greenway Benefice.

Download the attachment for a copy of the prayer card, including the names of all those preparing to enter ministry this year.

In the present circumstances we are no longer able to proceed with our planned dates for the ordination services at the end of June but are looking to a number of much smaller services in the autumn as the situation allows. Please also pray for the candidates and their families as they live with this uncertainty.

Those to be ordained as deacon will still begin their public ministry of service but in a lay capacity on 28 June.

Please pray too for Bishop Rachel who will preside at the ordinations.
