Each week we have prayer requests come in via email, facebook, Zoom, and other media. These are the prayers that I would ask you to lift on behalf of our community this week. Please do let me know if you would like to add prayers to this list and/or next Sunday’s online worship. And sorry if you posted a prayer and we missed it – do email me and let me know. Love, Rev. Michael xx

On top of which had a heart attack this week so he is now in hospital. The prognosis is terminal and his family are trying to get him home.

Lord, many at the Village – as elsewhere – have found their income reduced or have even lost their jobs. We ask for your spirit of generosity and grace to support those families who are struggling. We also lift to you our finances at the Village. As we go through this difficult time – help us to continue to be the church that you have called us to be.
Lord, in your mercy. Hear all of our prayers. AMEN
