Welcome to St John’s Church

Notices for Sunday 3rd June

PRAYERS: Our prayers are needed for the 19 million people in East and Southern Africa who are in urgent need of food, water and medical treatment. The countries in this region  face huge trials because of civil war, famine and displaced people. We also pray that God will give strength, wisdom and protection to church leaders there who are a source of hope. “The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble” Psalm 9:9.

We now have four leaders (Julie Hartridge, Charlotte Fidler, Kerry Boyce and Ruth Rawson) and adding to our one existing helper, Ben Himsworth, we now have Julie Tsang, Marti Attrell, Mae Tsang and Emily West. Thank you so much for your prayers throughout this difficult few months, and thank you to those who have volunteered to join our group.
