Pray for Gateway Church in Barnsley, which has set up a Debt Counselling service in Barnsley. They have been approached by another local church in Kendray to see if they could run a one-day a week initiative in their premises. The Church Urban Fund is supporting this 12-month pilot.
Pray also for CTC’s work in Manor Park and Forest Gate – and for discussions with local leaders on how to build on the exciting range of existing projects which churches are involved in which seek both to tackle gang violence and poverty, and to deepen relationships with other faiths in one of the world’s most religiously and ethnically diverse neighbourhoods. Pray especially for CTC’s Assistant Director Fr Sean Connolly, Parish Priest at the Catholic Parish of Manor Park, and Daniel Stone (Church Based Community Organiser in the Parish and in ARC Pentecostal Church, Forest Gate)
