Light a candle of hope: A national call to prayer
We are joining with churches across the nation this Mothering Sunday, 22nd March
At such a time as this, when so many are fearful and there is great uncertainty, we are reminded of our dependence on our loving Heavenly Father and the future that he holds.
At 7pm this Sunday, light a candle in the windows of your homes as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.
There are already stories being told of wonderful acts of kindness across neighbourhoods. This is seen in the three local villages and beyond. We are fully committed to the practical action that is required even if this as as small as taking the opportunity to telephone or email someone who is isolated. We are also committed to prayer which is especially important at such a time as this, when so many are fearful and there is great uncertainty, we are reminded of our dependence on our loving Heavenly Father and the future that he holds.
“Cast all your anxiety on Him, because he cares for you.”
1 Peter 5.7
