Each month we invite a number of churches, chaplains and pioneer projects to share their news so as a wider family in the SWBA we can pray for one another.
Here is news from a group sharing the good news of Jesus in the community.
From Sam Burnett, The Wave in Exmouth
Over the summer we have been running a pop-up community café jointly with our local parish church. It’s been a wonderful opportunity to serve the local community and to create a space that otherwise would not exist within Littleham. The response from the community has been overwhelmingly positive and we believe God is calling us to continue this work longer term. Please pray for us as we meet, discuss and discern the way forward.
From Rachael Warnock, Devonport
As a church we are currently focusing on sharing God’s generosity hospitality and joy together and in the local community. Here are just some of the ways we’re doing that.
We regularly eat together throughout the year and have held a pudding party and a BBQ recently. Please pray that new faces will join us, God will be in our conversations and relationships built up.
We run ‘Little Fish’, a group for 0-5s and their guardians at a local community hub. Please pray new families will continue to join us, feel welcome, and friendships will form.
We also run an arts and crafts group and recently we held a session creating beeswax eco wraps which was well attended. Please pray people will continue to join and that God will guide us as to how we can engage with community projects and justice issues.
We plan to restore a local plot of land for the community, with the community. Please pray planning and collaboration goes well and for God’s leading, that the community will see God’s love for Devonport.
From Steven Reed, Chaplaincy Adviser
As our young people return to school and colleges please pray for the important ministry of educational chaplaincy. Universities and private schools have Chaplains as well as some of our larger comprehensive schools. Anglican primary schools make use of local ministers as chaplains and local church members also engage as School Pastors and many deliver weekly school assemblies or ‘Open the Book’ sessions. There is much Christian activity in and around our educational establishments. Please pray!
