This morning we had 10 hardy souls brave the very icy conditions for a time built around Morning Prayer from the Northumbria Community.
Today at 13.00-14.00 we'll be focussing on prayer for our Children's ministries. Included in the topics we pray for will be:
- Thanksgiving for growth in numbers and spiritual growth in all sections of Children's work on Sundays (Bubbles, JAM and Sprouts)
- Prayers for expansion of our outreach i.e Stay and Play, Messy church, a possible youth house group, links to local schools etc.
- Prayer for leaders, especially those starting this term and for new leaders to be called to work in Sprouts and new areas of work.
- Music group: sustained/deepened relationships, new members
- Notice board/display: volunteers to present displays/generate ideas
- Use of poetry, prose writing in gathered (and personal) worship
- Drama in gathered worship
- Special occasions: Choir(s) Leaders and volunteers.
- Openness to God speaking/leading in gathered worship
- Website: For the designers and those who make contributions.
- Visual/3D art/media in gathered worship and around the church building
