Over the past few months the PCC has been thinking how best it could help those members of the public who pop into the church during the day looking for peace and prayer. A “Prayer Walk” leaflet has been developed which leads such a person around the church stopping at various points for prayer and contemplation. We had hoped to be able to publish it shortly but obviously that is not possible at the moment.
We enclose a link to an amended version of the leaflet which you may find helpful during the period the church is closed. Heather Elson & Heather Jasper
Do you know someone who would appreciate prayers, for any reason, for themselves or others? St Margaret's Church members run a Prayer Chain. The fifteen members will include your requests in their prayers. Be assured that all requests are confidential and can be anonymous. If you want to include a name please ask the person first. So many people have appreciated the prayers as they find the feeling of being surrounded by prayer is very comforting and helpful in a stressful situation.
June Youngs, Ipswich 213694 and Maureen Woodcock Ipswich 715891 will be pleased to pass the messages, via email or telephone, to the other members of the Prayer Chain.
Would you be interested in joining the members of the Prayer Chain? Requests are passed on by email or telephone, whichever is more convenient. You will be asked to pray for individuals or families during a difficult or worrying time in their lives. We would welcome additional links in the chain. It is a wonderful way of supporting others.
Our Prayer Tables, for adults and one for children are situated at the back of the church near the south door. Another alternative is to write a prayer request and hang it on the tree on the Prayer Tables. These requests will be prayed for during the week by Canon David Cutts.
Monthly Prayer Diary
Paper copies of the monthly Prayer Diary are available in church produced by different members of the congregation on an informal rota. This means that the diaries provide an interesting, original and inspiring variety of themes and ideas which make the diaries fascinating to read and use. Recent Prayer Diaries are available on the right-hand-side of this page.
If you would like to contribute and join the rota please contact Peter Youngs on 01473 213694.
