Magazine. The deadline for all articles for the summer edition of the magazine is Friday 30th June. We would be very interested in the stories behind some of the artefacts within the church and items of interest that have been donated or bequeathed i.e. the painting behind the choir stalls, furniture, pictures, embroidery etc... and how they came to be at Wisewood. If you have any information regarding any interesting objects in the church, or perhaps they have special meanings for you, please share. Thanks. Stuart C.

Prayer Group Report

Last Sunday we read Psalm 91... 'His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart'...etc. We gave thanks for the confidence and encouragement we find in reading the Bible. Thanks too that our Prayer Book is well used and for many answered prayers.

We have had an update about Rachel Hanks whom we have held in prayer for some years. She is still receiving chemotherapy which is keeping her cancer at bay and she is, once again, able to get out and about.

We prayed for all those mentioned in the book, especially those about to undergo operations and treatments, and for others known to be in need.

Following the disastrous fire in the London tower block, we prayed for the bereaved, those searching for loved ones, the injured, those made homeless and for all the emergency services whose efforts have again been above and beyond the call of duty. We remembered especially the Fire Services who now have the unenviable and traumatic task of searching for more victims.

On the first anniversary of the murder of Jo Cox MP, we prayed for her family and gave thanks for the legacy she left behind - for us all to come together in love. May every citizen be valued in this country so that all may live in safety. We prayed for today's MPs, especially those newly appointed, that they may work as Jesus would wish to bring equality and sharing. We remembered also those MPs whose Christian faith is often put to the test, especially by the media.

In Galatians, chapter 6 verse 10 we read: 'Let us work for the benefit of all...' etc...
