A Message from the Vicar

Dear Church Family, 

On Friday & Saturday (29th & 30th), as part of ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, we have a special focus on prayer and will have consecutive prayer from 8am – 8pm Friday and Saturday. If you haven’t already signed up to pray and would like to, there are still 9 slots to be filled at the time of writing (two for Friday and 7 for Saturday) and it’s easy to book in – just use this link and put your name in the time slot you would like http://www.24-7prayer.com/signup/cfa0cc  There is a prayer guide to use if it’s helpful – if you decide to use this, it’s helpful to have the bits you need to hand and don’t worry if you don’t get through everything. The important thing is to spend time in God’s presence and lift concerns to him. 

There are 4 documents you might like to see: 

• ‘Church without Walls’ our weekly newssheet 
• Prayer guide for Friday and Saturday 
• Activity Sheet for children (Sunday Service) 
And a poster that you may want to print off and put in your window 

I know many people have been praying for five people over the period of ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ and it would be great to hear of any answered prayer and also about your experience of praying over these two days. 

Parents please let us know if the activity sheet is useful. We are happy to keep providing it but only if it is something which is helpful for you.

This Sunday is of course Pentecost Sunday and as we wait in expectancy lets prayer for a new wave of God’s blessing as we pray that ancient prayer, ‘Come Holy Spirit’ 

Look forward to being with you on Sunday in ‘virtual church’! 

Yours as ever,


Rev Dave Hanson
Vicar Preston St Stephen
