For our students – congratulations on your exam successes. For the Christians of SRI LANKA facing opposition and persecution. For all those far from well, or are recovering from illness, and those known and cared about. The claiming of the ‘SQUARE MILE’ around our hall in prayer over the next weeks and months. DON’T FORGET – to use the Prayer Network – see Audrey Beeching or Jo Gaskin.
