Pray for St Martin’s Church in Nottingham – whom the Church Urban Fund is supporting in setting up a Debt Counselling Scheme on the Sherwood Council Estate for families in severe debt and related problems. St Martin’s found this need through coming into contact through its families worker who has been working with vulnerable families for 2 1/2 years. The scheme is being developed in association which Christians Against Poverty.
Pray also for the Contextual Theology Centre, as it develops plans with partner organisations to engage churches more deeply in the Credit Union movement. CTC is hoping to launch a significant new initiative on this issue after Easter – pray for God’s guidance on the conversations and planning currently going on between the staff team, our local congregations, and other strategic partners.
