    Prayer List

    We welcome new names of those who are ill to be added to our weekly list for prayer. This is intended for a short to medium term prayer list.
    After two months names will be
    transferred to the vicars long term
    prayer list. You can of course request that the name goes back on the list for a further period.
    Regular updates would be appreciated about the condition of those who are sick.
    Please let the vicar or Linda Dutton know.
