Please pray for.....

Church

The opportunities this month to come together as a church family to enjoy friendship and deepen our sense of community.
The teaching series on Elijah and 2 Timothy, that they may help in growing and deepening our faith and understanding.
Our continuing programme to aid spiritual growth, including the ‘Street Retreat’ and journalling in the prayer garden, and for those who are leading the sessions.
The parish finance team, as Claire Whittaker (Finance Leader) finishes in post and hands over to a new member of staff. We thank her warmly for all she has contributed.

 
Community

All who work in local nurseries, schools and colleges, as the academic year draws to a close and many end of term activities take place.  Also for all those who are preparing to move on in their education.
Students who are returning home for the summer break, that they may enjoy a time of rest, refreshment and opportunities to do other things.
The Syrian family who are now settling into Ashtead, supported by Ashtead Churches Together as part of the government community sponsorship scheme.

The selection process for the new Prime Minister which will be concluded this month and that the transition of leadership may happen smoothly.
Ongoing Brexit negotiations under new leadership both in the UK and the EU.
All those affected by gun and knife crime in many parts of the world and for those who are working with offenders to try and reduce this type of violence.
