Suggestions for Prayers

Pray for Christians who are unsure how best to share their faith openly, whether at work, out shopping or with friends and family; and that the love and concern for the less fortunate will be reflected in our lives. Help us to be resistant to today’s trend towards increased secularism and that we will have the courage to protect our right to be able to share the Gospel freely.

Pray for People in the Kings Meadow View area of Wetherby: Kings Meadow Drive, Kings Meadow View, Kings Meadow Close, Kings Meadow Mews, Kings Meadow Grove.

This week Churches in Wetherby Pray for: The Baptist Church and Ministry through Margins Bookshop.

Baptisms – I have recently taken on the role of coordinating Baptism Preparation in the Church. We have started to hold Baptism Teas to give the families a warm welcome to the church, provide information about the service itself and all the things we do at St James’. These run 3 times a year at 4pm on a Sunday in the Church Centre. I am looking for anyone who would like to help with the teas in the role of welcoming or with refreshments. Also, if you would be interested in assisting at the Baptism Services, please get in touch and we can discuss further! Many thanks. Jo Davies 07891 824126 joannamaedavies@hotmail.co.uk
