Quote of the Week We give and we bless and we build others up. We encourage, we cheer on, we join in, we let ourselves be seen and we reflect the God we were created to reflect” (Adam Dyer).

Prayer: Here are some of the things our fellowship will be praying about this week.

EBA: Great Shelford Free Church Great Shelford Free Church was founded in 1825. The pastor is Revd Martin Cockerill who has been at the church for four years. He is passionate about church community and learning together to be more like Jesus Christ. The church has a full programme of weekly activities with a toddler group, a coffee morning, a network of small home groups and a good children’s ministry. The church is now blessed with a number of young families with children. The church believes strongly in the value of fellowship and support, as they challenge each other to grow in their faith.

Adopt-a-Road: We are praying for the residents of Victoria Road this week.


Personal: Ivy and Glady who have not been well recently.

Eileen and Doreen also in Aldringham Court, each of them can have 'good' and 'bad' days.

Pray for freedom from pain and for joy in their lives.

Dave awaiting an appointment at Ipswich Hospital.
