A little word
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12.2
This week we start to think about transforming. We are called to be renewed, to be bearers of hope and justice. In the verse before this, Paul urges us to see ourselves as a sacrifice. If we are to challenge unjust structures and promote reconciliation, we must first let God transform us, by offering ourselves fully to God, and being open to the leading and challenge of the Holy Spirit.
Things to pray for
- Give thanks for all those who challenge injustice.
- For Enzo & Kaysha and their families as they come for Baptism.
- For the valuing of all life, everywhere, from womb to tomb.

Calling all musicians, singers and those interested in worship
Rog, Julie, and Sue are laying on some worship skills workshops. If you would like to gain some confidence in singing or playing or other ways of taking part in worship this is for you. See the flyer for details.
‘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.
