Good morning all
It’s that time of the month again when we have the opportunity to unite in prayer for a full 24 hours, this Friday 7pm 1st September to 7pm Saturday 2nd September. We are gifted with the beautiful theme from Micah 6:8, where we are reminded ‘to act justly, love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.’ If you would like to join in with a meditative, creative or active hour with the Lord in prayer, please click on the link or sign up on the board in the church building.  https://signup.24-7prayer.com/signup/fc9397
As always we begin with an hour of Prayer & Praise Together from 7pm which Anita will  lead this month in my absence. Please Zoom in using these details https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82670522846 (Meeting ID: 826 7052 2846)
The Christ Church Mission Focus for September is TEN. Please find this week’s prayer newsletter below kindly sent through by Colin.
Please email me any reflections following your hour with the Lord so that we can encourage and build up the body of Christ as always.
With love and prayers.

Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Philippians 2:12-13 NIV

To go back is nothing but death; to go forward is fear of death, and life everlasting beyond it. l will yet go forward. ~John B
