Blessings, Peter


In the darker moments, when clouds gather

and the heaviness we feel seems overwhelming,

remind us of your love, carrying the weight

of so much in that cross, embracing the world

with arms outstretched that we might know

freedom from the chains which now constrain us.

Bring us to your light, release our burdens

and from despair bring hope.

From Julie Parsons


please can you pray for the funding applications i am submitting for emmanuel and the foodbank. the financial crash means grant-providers (investors) will have less to give, while the demand is higher due to greater need.  but god is our provider and all resources are his.

From Haydon

Please pray for all of us who are trying to lead Churches in this new 'era'. We all need esach other. I am also praying that I will be prepared as and when people face emotional or physical challenges, both now and in the future. The impact and consequences of this moment in our history could be very long-lasting. To journey alongside the hurting and broken is a great gift and privilege.

I also pray that as they search for hope and a safe place to call home spiritually at this time, many find it with God and in Emmanuel.
