Act of Remembrance included in Kids’ Church and online gathering.
In line with nationwide practice, the outdoor parade in CSP is not taking place, and the short service of remembrance at St Peter’s is a small, closed ceremony (where Stephen, members of the British Legion and two other members of clergy will lay wreaths at the Village War Memorial.)  Instead, we are encouraged to take part in services online, watch the national service on television, and pause for the Two Minute Silence at 11am.

EA DAY OF PRAYER:

13 November 2020
The Evangelical Alliance is calling churches and Christians across the UK to unite in prayer for our communities during this ongoing crisis: click here for more details, a suggested schedule and ideas to help you pray.

For prayer

‘…but surely God has listened and has heard my prayer’ (Psalm 66): and so we pray with confidence for:
Young families, children and young people
: that despite the unusual rhythm of current life, they would meet and come to love Jesus. For Shona, Natalie & teams to have wisdom & perseverance as they lead.
Local schools: wisdom for leaders & team members as they ensure ongoing education, safety and support; for security and receptivity for pupils as they continue their education.
Our young adults as they study, take gap years, start out in adult life: to stay close to Jesus as they make life-shaping decisions.
Gold Hill Seniors: our Senior friends themselves, and the team as they support them each week.
Gold Hill Care (Rock House, Graham House, Gold Team) – as they care for more vulnerable people in our community.
Foodbanks, CAP, other support mechanisms to bring the love of Jesus as well as practical support to those who are finding life tough at the moment.
Gold Hill, Hope, church families in our area: to grow in unity and strength to share the Good News of Jesus.
Our nation: for wisdom for leaders in all spheres of life, and for our nation to honour God once again.
