In Our Prayers:

In the world: All whose work is unfulfilling, stressful or fraught with danger.

With Christian Aid: Pray for the hundreds of thousands of people Christian Aid are able to help.

In the Parish: those who live along: Southchurch Road, South Esk Road and Spencer Road

The sick and suffering: Alice Singh, Les Rowe, Clarice, Paula Gray, Paul Gray, Alec Creggan, Eileen Exley, Fiona McGuiness,  Mary Skerritt, Jan Hibbard, Clarence Lawrence, Coraline Edwards, Lyn Wingate, Tony Richards, Daniel Sims, Peggy Sims, Mark Dorrington and Norman Lipman

Please keep Paul Gray in your prayers at this time as he is particularly unwell with cancer.

Those who have died: It was with great sadness that the Diocese announced on Wednesday the death of John Wraw (1959 – 2017) Bishop of Bradwell.  Bishop John was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2014 but has continued to have an active ministry to the very end of his life.  We keep Gillian and his family in our prayers. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
