Earthquake in Turkey and Syria

Earthquake in Turkey and Syria

Members will have the opportunity to respond to the appeal for aid through the DEC appeal at church over the next few weeks.

Christian Aid has shared the following prayer:

God of time and space, we cry to you for your children – our neighbours – in southern Turkey and northern Syria, following the earthquake that has devastated hundreds of lives. Only they and you know what it is like to experience such trauma in the middle of the night. 

We give thanks for the aid that is already being given and for the promises of help that have been made by many nations. 

Comfort, we pray, 

   those who are trapped in collapsed buildings; 

   those who have lost loved ones; 

   those who wait for news and 

   those digging through rubble to save others. 

Grant the gift of hope so that those caught between life and death know that you are with them and that others are ready to support them as they seek a future that overshadows the experiences of today. 

We ask this in the Name of Jesus, who endured so much for love of them. 

Amen

Christmas Shoeboxes 2019

Christmas Shoeboxes 2019

On Sunday, we dedicated fifty shoeboxes of gifts prepared by our Junior Church for children overseas.

These will be transported and distributed by the Teams4U charity which was set up by Dave Cooke, the originator of Operation Christmas Child.

Thank you to everyone who contributed items for the shoeboxes, to the children who wrote letters to the recipients and to the adults who helped them pack and wrap the shoeboxes.
