Monthly Prayer Focus:  

You’ve called us as your Church, Lord, your people here on earth,

A fellowship of equals where all are given worth,

A family together, distinguished by our care,

One faith, one hope, one gospel, one vision that we share.

May cords of love unite us, too strong to be undone –

Although we may be many, equip us to be one.     Amen

Weekly Prayer Focus :

Almighty God, we thank you for the gift of your holy word.

May it be a lantern to our feet, a light to our paths,

And a strength to our lives. Take us and use us to love and serve

In the power of the Holy Spirit

And in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For Prayer:

Emma, in her new role, is organising an event for young people across the diocese who are ages 11-18 and have been confirmed in the last five years. Its a celebration event and its called ‘Life’ and will be a space where young people can celebrate the step they took in confirmation but also to give them tools to continue their discipleship journey. Both Bishops are going to come and join in the event and there is the hope that 50 young people will attend. Please can you pray for young to hear about it, through their Clergy, and book on, for the team as they prepare and plan the event and for volunteers to help out on the day. 

It takes place on 21st September from 4-7pm and if you know anyone who wants to come please encourage them to talk to Emma or visit the Church of England website: http://www.cofebirmingham.com/hub/youth/training/


Heather lives and works right by Lake Victoria, and not far from the Serengeti National Park.  It is a beautiful place, but life can be hard for people who have no water supply, and have to fetch water by the bucket from the Lake.  Worse for the small farmers, is that the early rains were late, and insufficient rain fell, so many crops failed.  The knock on effect is for food prices to rise, and the price of maize, (a staple food) has doubled.  I was recently given a donation to send to Heather, but it seems such a small amount  where the need is great.  If anyone would like to send a little money to Heather, I can give you her details.  You can be sure she will use it wisely and carefully.                             Christine Allen 445 2402


OPEN AIR SERVICE: Sunday 14th July at 10.30am

On the slope below the Visitors’ Centre at Lickey. This replaces the usual 10.30am Morning Worship at Lickey. It is always a lovely occasion  where we join to worship together with our friends from St. Michael’s Cofton Hackett and St. Andrew’s, Barnt Green. Why not bring some games to play and a picnic lunch to share afterwards.

Please bring something to sit on too. If wet the service will be in Holy Trinity, Lickey.
