Team Leader: Keith Croxton
Saturday Coffee: The numbers are gradually increasing as members of the church family drop in for a coffee & a relaxed time of chatting & sharing. We also welcome visitors & those who just drop in to have a quiet time & light a candle. Please pray for two /three more pairs of volunteers to enable us to open more often.
The Centre Give thanks that new bookings have been received which helps the finances but also increases further what is provided at The Centre for the community.
Please pray for those hiring The Centre that they will experience a sense of God’s presence in the building & that we will build positive relationships witnessing through what we say & how we welcome them to be part of all that happens at The Centre. Give thanks for the recent “thank you” event when hirers & church group leaders met for a lunchtime buffet so they could all be thanked for using The Centre.
Please pray that the finances will hold up during the winter months as we face increased costs for heating, lighting etc, especially as we want to ensure that The Centre is a warm place for those who call in.
Food Bank Last year was the busiest since we opened 12 years ago, & the first two months of 2023 indicate this year will be even busier. Give thanks for the generous donations of finance & food that ensures we can keep supplying the food parcels to those in need. Pray for the food bank team who are coping so well with the increase demand.
