Hope Methodist is hosting its annual holiday bible club in July.

We need about 10 - 15 more people to pray for individual members of the team.
I will match you with someone, explain their role, share the theme of each day with you

and also contact details of the person you are praying for

(hopefully you will let me give them yours too).

All you do then is pray from now until we are cleared away.
You may choose to contact them and ask if they have a particular need,

or they may contact you to request prayer.

In previous years, some pairs have met together to pray - this is not essential, just an option.

If you are willing to pray for someone, please contact me on 01772 611389

(usually afternoons and evenings), 07817 940898 - texts, WhatsApp or by email Alison

 We are collecting pringles tubs - any size but they must have lids and A4 paper boxes (ideally with lids)

 Many Thanks and Blessings

Alison
