"Thy kingdom come". Tracy Reynolds has set up some simple and effective prayer stations, which form a chain around the church, based on the Lord's Prayer. It's arranged in such a way that anyone can take themselves around it. Please do. Every day this week, except Monday, we will have a short prayer service at 12.15pm. We pray for peace, for politicians at home and abroad, for Christian unity, and that the world may become a more hopeful, peaceful, and loving place. That people may see the love of Christ in action. 

"Thy kingdom come" culminates with a service on Saturday 3rd June at 7.00pm in St Nicholas' cathedral. 

All welcome. 

Discussion group meets Tuesday 6th June at 5.30pm at 9 Chester Crescent. All welcome. "Building community". (Chapter 15 of Living faithfully)
