Sadly our friend and long-standing member of our congregation, Sheila Cox died peacefully, surrounded by her family, in the early hours of Tuesday 16th June. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

You may have seen in the local press that there is a call to prayer in Ryde this Summer.

Christian church leaders in Ryde have joined together to ask us all to pray for those who live and work in the Ryde area for the 2020 hours from 10am on Wednesday 1st July until 2pm on Wednesday 23rd September.

A dedicated website has been established www.prayforryde.org

where daily themes and other resources to guide prayers will be uploaded. A short video will be posted each morning introducing the subject so as to inspire prayers for that day. There will be a ZOOM prayer meeting, open to everyone, at 10am on 1st July and 1.45pm on 23rd September and 7pm every day

in between.

If you would like to volunteer as a steward for private prayer times in church please contact Rev Sue.

Unfortunately, we cannot yet let you help if you are over 70 or clinically vulnerable.
