Praying for our nation

Following the events of Thursday evening, it is now improbable that as a nation we will be leaving the EU on Friday 29th March.

Months ago we had planned to open the church for prayer on Thursday 28th, the day before we were due to leave.

This was to be a time when we would come together to pray for the future, for each other, for the Government and Parliament, for the healing of our nation and for our on-going relationship with Europe and the rest of the world.

Like you, I am very conscious that the Brexit landscape is shifting and changing almost hourly; so rather than cancel Thursday's meeting, I will be at church on Thursday evening at 7:30pm to lead prayers for an hour and invite those who'd like to come along to join me in some guided prayers, silence, lighting of candles and reflection.

Love and God Bless

Keith
