Weekly news for 5.6.22

Dear Friends

This week we celebrate Pentecost, it will be lovely to see you.

Do remember to check in to our facebook page or the website regularly for updates.

A little word

 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth.                    John 14.16-17

Advocate, Counsellor, Helper, Comforter, Friend, these are all words used to translate this wonderful promise of Jesus. One who comes alongside, one who speaks for us, stands beside us, these are what is being conveyed. This is what we celebrate at Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, God’s presence among and within us, forever.

Come Holy Spirit.

  • Give thanks for God’s presence, guiding us.

Prayer Board

‘And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.’ (Eph. 6.18.)

Our CCP Prayer Board is to the left of the doors on the way to the kitchen.

Please write your requests for prayer on the tags (or reuse the old paper bits) and pin them to the board. Then read and pray!

Before you do post anything on the Prayer Board, please check with anyone whose name you have mentioned that … it is OK to mention their name!  They need to remember that this is a public notice-board and that people might mention things posted on here in the Prayers of Intercession in our Services, which are live-streamed to the world.

Kathryn and Kate Thompson have over-sight of the board, so please talk to them if you want to know anything.
