PRAYER

CHURCH FOR CIRCUIT PRAYER- BRIGHOUSE CENTRAL

You will have noticed a number of concerts advertised at Brighouse Central, all part of their Summer music season. They also run their own music academy. Please pray for them as they reach out to the community through these ventures.


OURSELVES AT ST. PAUL'S
Grant us, O Lord, the will to accomplish all that pleases you;
The strength to do all that you command and the reverence to respect al that you have made; for your own name’s sake. Amen.
Francis of Assisi; 1182-1226

SOWERBY BRIDGE
Please pray for those who live on Dearden Street, Bright Street, Fernlea Street and Denby Place.


PRAYER CIRCLE

As part of the pastoral work in our church, we have a group of people willing to pray for your personal needs. Feel free to phone any of the church officers about this. If you would like personal prayer on a Sunday morning, please speak to the steward and they will arrange it for you.

We so often only pray for people in trouble. Let us also pray in thanks for the loving, the joyful, the kind and those who go out of their way to ease other people's burdens.

SAVE YOUR STAMPS!
Please save your used postage stamps for THE LEPROSY MISSION. There is a tin for them in the Concourse. Thank you


MINISTRY & PASTORAL CARE
Our Flower Ministry needs your help! If you know someone who is unwell and would benefit from some flowers, could you buy them some and take them on behalf of the church? The duty steward can let you have some money so don't be afraid to ask. It is helpful if we know who has received them and a book for this is kept in the vestry cupboard. If you are ill, please remember to inform your Pastoral Carer or, if that's not possible, let Karen Walsh know on 839465


FAIRTRADE BLOOMS!
Did you know that you can also support Fairtrade by buying Fairtrade flowers from Aldi and Lidl?


PRAYERS 0N THE MOVE

Busy day, lots on. prayer time pushed out? Go to www.prayersonthemove.com or search POTM in your App Store to download a daily prayer app for your mobile phone. Created by SPCK, prayers are short - some only a line long - and you can listen to them, share them, 'Like' them and even set a reminder time for them to help your prayer habit!


FOR ZAMBIA

Plastic trigger heads from cleaning sprays, cleaning wipes packaging (eg from surface wipes), flip top caps from home cleaning products (eg washing up liquid, Cif cream) and synthetic 'biscuit wrapping' - these items are not recycled by Calderdale so, if you like, put them in the box in the Concourse and I will pass them on to raise money for Contesa, a charity in Zambia which provides care for vulnerable girls, orphaned because of AIDS and HIV. Many thanks, Angela Hellowell. 


JOSEPH STORE
As well as the ongoing need for tinned meat and other food items in the Joseph Store, there is also a need, please, for toiletry items, particularly for ladies, such as shower gel, soap, body lotion and deodorant. All contributions gratefully received.


Future Notices

 Please give information for future notices to Angela Hellowell.  You can telephone Angela, (01422 839736), or email, (hellowanj@aol.com).  To be included on the Sunday, notices need to reach Angela by 6pm on Friday evening.  

Thank you.


All of our Sunday morning services are recorded on CDs, which are then available to borrow.  If you would like to know more, please speak to Don Hayward, Alex Lee or Angela Hellowell, .
