Pray for the advice and guidance drop-in at St John the Baptist, Barnsley – which the Church Urban Fund is helping the church develop. St John plans to host a one day a week drop in centre at its church to provide face to face help for marginalised and disadvantaged people. This contact point will offer listening from a trained project worker along with volunteers from the church, and further referral to other advice and support services. Issues addressed by this drop in will include unemployment, poor health, poor mental health, isolation and family breakdown.
Pray also for Daniel Stone. CTC’s Church-based Community Organiser at two Pentecostal and Roman Catholic congregations in east London – and for the work he is helping those churches develop to tackle gang violence, and mentor young people.
