WINTER GLORY—WOMEN’S CONFERENCE—26 JANUARY: KETTERING   Ladies, please pick up a leaflets from the back of the church for this annual day conference.

 

Please pray:

For those who are Ill:   Rex Charles, Claire Pettit, Hugo Lamberty, Michael Marron, Lindy Schiff, Bob Trusler, Audrey Axten, Avril Bird (Rex Charles’ sister), and Ruby Willmer.

For the bereaved relatives and friends of: Gladys Phillips whose funeral will take place in our church Monday 14 January at 1.00pm.

For our local missions:   Schools Work and Assemblies:   Pray for those who go into the schools from our local churches: assemblies, lunch clubs, and other work with vulnerable young people. Pray that they may have wisdom and inspiration as they share the love of God with the children and youth.

For our Mission Partners: Bishop Abelino and Paty:  Bishop Abelino has now ended his service as “local partner” with the Church Mission Society and so is no longer a mission partner of St Mary’s. In the past, the Anglican Church of Chile has been a diocese of the Anglican Church of S.America. Now, though, it is in the process of becoming an independent Anglican province in which Abelino will serve as Bishop of Temuco. Let’s give thanks for the good fellowship we have shared with him over a number of years and pray for the Lord’s rich blessing upon him and upon all our Chilean brothers and sisters in the days to come.
