Advent Prayer Diary is available in the welcome area. Please help yourself to one and allow it to guide you through daily prayers
Christmas Cards by the front door are for you to take away and distribute to your friends and neighbours; particularly non-Christians (along with the HOPE magazine). They contain our Christmas service times, so they act as an invite as well as a Christmas greeting
Christmas Greetings Board in the welcome area is for your card to the whole church if you would like to do this and donate the money you would have spent on individual cards to charity

Our People: We pray for freedom from pain; both physically and emotionally. We ask for healing for those we know struggling with pain and we pray for discernment for the best way to support them.
Our Community: We pray for our local schools as they prepare for their Nativities and Carol Services; that the children will receive God’s message of love, joy, hope and peace this Christmas into their lives.
