Prayer: Here are some of the things our fellowship will be praying about this week.
EBA: Arbury Road Baptist Church is a short bike ride from Cambridge city centre and is passionately seeking to ‘know and make known the hope and life of Jesus’ in North Cambridge. The fellowship at Arbury Road have been served by their Minister, Revd Matt Rowe, for four and a half years, along with Erica Bowler, as their Community/Pioneer Minister in Training for the last three years. Over this time, the church have clarified their values and explored the missional opportunities that are present within North Cambridge.
Adopt-a-Road: We are praying for the residents of the Springfield Road this week.
World Day of Prayer meetings – world-wide.
