Monthly Prayer: Loving God, we join with our sisters and brothers across the diocese this month to pray to more and more follow your son’s teaching to ” Love our neighbours.” Father help us to know more and more clearly just who our ‘neighbours’ are, and we pray for your Holy Spirit’s empowering in gaining this knowledge and then responding as Jesus taught. Help us to grow in showing loving gestures and acts of service in response to that love bubbling up inside us, and help us to love as much as you love us. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
Weekly Prayer Focus: – We pray for our neighbours in our local community, that in our sharing of worship this week our community will know our love for one another and more make real our love for them. We pray for Christ to truly be ‘King’ in this community, that his Kingdom be known and recognized who live here. In Jesus’ name Amen

Take Out Advent. This year take out advent has a different feel to it. It comes in two parts, the first is a Wall Chart crammed full of ideas and activities to keep you and your family busy this advent. Any time you need inspiration about how to engage you and your loved ones in the time of advent have a look on the chart and choose an activity. The second is the Reverse Advent Calendar. To help us look out for others this advent, take up the challenge of filling a box or two with food for the food bank, one item a day thought out advent! Instead of taking chocolate out of an advent calendar make a Reverse Calendar and Chocolate could even be the choice for the Dec 1st!! Any questions ask Emma Sargeant.
Thursday Evening Prayer: 7- 8pm Holy Trinity, Lickey – everyone is welcome to join us for prayer. Please come to the chancel if you wish to join the group but you may wish to simply come into the congregation space and pray silently. We do not want anyone to be excluded. It is your church to seek God in the way that best suits you.
