Parish Notices Sunday 10th March 2019

The Rector writes Praying is something that we perhaps tend to do more of during Lent (perhaps it is the lack of Facebook & Twitter!) and I know that many of you ask me to pray for particular problems or situations in your lives.  In our parish we have a group of people who have been trained by the Churches Ministry of Healing in how to pray alongside the people who come to our Wholeness & Healing Services (which happen about four times each year, usually on the evening of 5th Sundays when there is a United Service in the morning) This group of people are dedicated to praying for all manner of situations and problems and I am deeply grateful to them for their support of me and my ministry. The cartoon on the back of the Linksheet caught my eye a little while ago and I shared it with the Healer/Prayer Group. They loved it and asked if it could be printed in the Linksheet so that more people could enjoy it. We all have times in our lives when we need the prayer of others to help us get through particularly  difficult patches. Please let me know if you or someone you know would like to be prayed for in the strictest confidence’
