Circuit Date for your diary Peter McCabe, the Circuit Prayer Champion He is inviting anyone who has a passion for prayer to a meeting to find out what is happening in the churches over Christmas and to talk about how this can be backed up in prayer.  The meeting will be on Zoom on Wednesday 3rd November at 2.30pm and will last around an hour. 

Please email Chris Palmer, circuit administrator, for the zoom link if you would like to join the meeting. 

At recent listening sessions held with the circuit stewards, prayer was acknowledged to be one of our most important priorities.

Let’s pray for Arnside

We know that you love us and love the world. We thank you for the many blessings that you shower upon us every day. We place all our cares and concerns before you. We especially pray for this village of Arnside: for everyone who lives and works here, and for the many visitors to this beautiful place. Be close to those who are sick, bereaved, lonely or afraid. Enable everyone to know your peace, your comfort and your love. We make our prayer in the name of Jesus who is our risen Lord. Amen.
