Action for Children. Gift envelopes are available for donations in support of vital work still being carried out in helping neglected and vulnerable children and young people, this year focusing on peace and mental well-being. If you are a tax payer and are able to gift aid a donation, please do so. This will provide an additional 25p for each £1, at no extra cost to ourselves. Thank you for your continued support - it will be most gratefully accepted. Stella.

Many thanks to all those who supplied cakes for, helped steward at, dismantled tents etc or just visited the Churches Together Fun Day. It was a good 'do' and reached a big cross section of the Hillsborough community. Margaret P.

Prayer Group Report

Last Sunday we read from Luke’s gospel, chapter 17 about the coming of the ‘Kingdom of God’. Verses 20 & 21 “The kingdom of God does not come visibly, nor will people say ‘Here it is’ or ‘There it is’, because the kingdom of God is within you." This calls us to live for God and do all we can to spread His word and His love.

We continued to pray for the recovery of all those affected by recent terror attacks in Manchester and London and by the Grenfell Tower fire. We gave thanks for the emergency services who are prepared to put their own lives at risk and who work to exhaustion to help in these difficult situations. Thanks too for the love and concern shown by ordinary people in giving time, shelter, food, clothing etc... We prayed for those trying to find solutions to the problems now faced and trying to make sure nothing similar occurs in the future.

Please remember in your prayers the people of Syria and Iraq, especially in Mosul, where homes have been razed to the ground and leaving as refugees seems the only option. May leaders of nations have the wisdom to seek justice and peace for all so that all nations and faiths may live in peace and harmony.
