For prayer

To God who declares ‘Then you will call upon me and pray to me, and I will hear you’, we pray for:
Revival in our nation, and for the church to be willing and prepared to step out.
Church families across South Bucks, that God would move powerfully across our region.
Gold Hill and Hope Church families & leaders as we yearn for God’s kingdom to come in our area. Local initiatives (community support and Foodbanks) as we seek to share the good news of hope in Jesus with those most vulnerable.
Gold Hill Seniors and all the team as they continue to support all our guests.
Children & Young People: for our youngsters and their leaders (Natalie, Shona, volunteer teams) as they continue to connect and grow their awareness of God’s faithfulness through this period of change and uncertainty.
Minnis Bay Mission: for God to continue to work in the hearts of all youngsters who joined the virtual mission 26-31 July, and for refreshment/recovery for all the team!
