    We Pray For:

  • the Church throughout the world celebrating the resurrection of Jesus; that united in prayer and worship, we may live the risen life.
  • all who live in the darkness of Good Friday and have never reached the light of Easter Day, especially those persecuted for their faith, the hungry, the homeless, the refugee.
  • St. Thomas’ School as it is inspected by OFSTED this Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Aimee and Jonathan, Catherine and Prince William to be married this week: that love may be at the
    centre of their homes.
  • St. Thomas’ as we continue to welcome people to the Easter Experience – that all may come closer to the crucified and risen Jesus.
  • those in need of healing: Noreen Cowking , Paul Rigby, Paul Stirrup, Jean Perkins, Elizabeth Parry, Greta Norbury, Elsie Higham, Alan Cliffe, Tony Mason, Kate Allan and Alison Hatcher.
  • the dead and those who mourn their loss: for Joan Grisenthwaite.
