Please pray for Women on the Frontline Ministries (WOFM), which
|aims to share the love of Jesus with women working in street prostitution. It currently runs a day drop-in centre called Safe women’s project, to support these women through emotional and spiritual support, advice, hot food/ drink, shower facilities, and a 12 step programme of empowerment, as well as skills workshops. The Church Urban Fund is supporting WOFM in expanding its day centre provision, owing to the possible increase in women working in street prostitution in the London Borough of Newham during the Olympic games.
Pray also for the work the Contextual Theology Centre has been doing with its partner churches in Newham and the other Olympic boroughs – using community organising to secure affordable housing, jobs and a Living Wage for local people as part of the London Citizens alliance. Pray especially for the campaign for a Community Land Trust to be part of the legacy on the Olympic site.
