On Tuesday 23rd May the 'Prayer for the suffering church' meeting was held at 9 Cabin Lane and members from three different churches came together to pray. It was a really blessed time when we prayed for individuals (and countries) from Indonesia, India, Kenya, and Afghanistan amongst others.
This month, and following, we will be meeting on the last Tuesday for one hour. The 27th June at 7:30 is the time, 9 Cabin Lane the place, and intercession on behalf of our brothers and sisters the aim.

We would love you to join us.


Please contact 01691 657194 if you have any questions.

The Foodbank is also short of volunteers. We need people who could meet and greet our clients, listen to them in a non- judgemental way, signpost them on to other agencies and process paperwork so that the client can get their food from us. We of course give training and support,
Thank you for your help.
