Superintendent: Revd Cathy Bird
God of new beginnings,
We pray this year for Stoke Newington Methodist Church: from 1st September, a new church structure bringing together Green Lanes and High Street churches into one church based on two brand new sites. We pray that as we pool our resources and grow together we might be released to serve and worship you, opening our doors and welcoming friends and strangers alike. We pray for Tom, our new Premises Manager, giving thanks for the skills and insights he will bring to the role. We pray for healthy and strong partnerships with the Salvation Army as we develop a Listening Place project together and with local volunteers serving refugees and migrants in the now well established Akwaaba Project. Help us always to remember your teaching that it is in loving one another as you loved that the world will see that we are your disciples.
· That we may find a way of working creatively with teenagers in the Circuit.
· That our younger adults may feel confident to move into positions of leadership in the Circuit
For all our housebound and very elderly members who have given so much, in service to the church over the years
