Prayer Clock

If anyone would like to join the prayer clock to pray a 15 minute prayer slot or more per day, then please contact Dave Sibley on:- 854903 / 07967912226 or e-mail at dave_lin@hotmail.co.uk.

The main purpose for the prayer clock is to have prayer coverage 24/7 for the Island, for God’s mercy to be known and for all those who minister the gospel. We still have the majority of slots covered but we don’t mind if times are doubled up. Prayer is vital!

Closing Greeting & Invitation

Well it doesn’t seem that long ago since Christmas and Easter seems to have come around again so quickly. Some of the team with Mick will be out again during Holy Week walking the Cross. The rest of the team will be out witnessing in various towns. As per last year we will be about an hour in each town and you would be most welcome to join us at this blessed time – God Bless Annie.
As the old song goes “Here we go again “and “Another year older and deeper in debt*, not from bad management but in debt to the Dear Lord for His enabling us to walk again around the Island this Holy Week. It is a time of great blessing to pray, sing hymns and encourage each other through the pain and discomfort that we often experience. We would like to invite anyone who would be willing to join us in this witness as you would be most welcome. Please contact any email or telephone number shown on the newsletter.
We would be very grateful for your prayers that people would only see the “Old Rugged Cross” and that we would bear fruit that glorifies God and that lasts.
The Grace Of The Lord Jesus Christ be with you and your family always,

Happy Easter Mick – (Psalm 51v10-13.)
