As we open up the building we pray for the following groups their leaders and those who attend:

  • Junior Church,Mums and Toddlers,        Cameo and Film Nights

Our links with Strike Lane and Holy Trinity Junior Schools and Busy Bees Nursery

–      forward planning for various community events in the autumn and over the Christmas period in which they get involved

–      resuming monthly assemblies taken by the Minister in the schools again

–      The Godly Play Bus being able to visit

As we seek to build on the outreach through Wesley’s Larder and develop a Community Café, pray for our funding application to refurbish the kitchen, that we may have confidence and vision to see where God is leading us.

As we build a vision for the future may people hear the call to key roles in the church.

Closer and effective working with our ecumenical partners that we can develop joint ways of ministry and mission to the rapidly growing villages of Freckleton and Warton and hundreds of new homes.
