Christ Church Presbyterian, Sandymount, Dublin – Revd Katherine Meyer
Praise and Prayer for:
- Give thanks for the Explorers, a self-organizing group based in the local area and supported by the churches, who gather to explore Scripture together once a month. The numbers are growing, the buzz is increasing, and the format is attracting people from a wider area, so we pray that all would be open to the work of the Spirit in our midst.
- Please pray for the Church Council, as several of our members are coping with the serious illness of an immediate family member, so we are particularly in need of mutual support.
- Pray also for the working group which is looking at how to re-imagine our pastoral engagement with those who have no formal or past link to Christ Church, but who seek our support in times of distress.
- Give thanks for the continuing strength of our monthly craft markets, which has enabled large numbers of people from the local area to feel at home in our hall and grounds, and who are calling in to the church more regularly as a result.
