Every July we have a couple of weeks where we engage in a lot of Serve the City work when we help people in our community in practical ways, spreading the love of Jesus among lonely, marginalised people. Please pray for safety for the team as we often work in areas that can be a bit volatile, but also that we will have lots of opportunities to talk to people about our faith as our presence attracts a lot of curiosity from friends and neighbours.
Ask that the lord of the harvest will lead us to the “man of peace” wherever we go
