Thy Kingdom Come  - The Lordís Prayer Journey

Thank you to all the doorkeepers for holding the fort so that others could come along and take part.

The Prodigalís Return

We enjoyed a special evening looking at how God the Father cares for his children and how we can pray and support our children/adults many of whom are or were part of our church family. Overall 156 people's names were written on hearts and candles lit. Several people stayed overnight to pray for each child and family individually. Each heart was attached to the cross.



At
5am we had breakfast expertly cooked by Ian and Jill, and enjoyed by us all.


Thank you for the Boaz Shop collection last week
