A large contingent of the Street Church family welcomed Jennie and her husbandPete to celebrate Jennie's 50th birthday with us. Jennie's been very important to St. Church and it's other outreach work, she hasn't felt on top form recently so we all wish her a speedy recovery and return to us all. Please keep her in your prayers. We miss you Jennie!
It's interesting to note that the 50th year is the year of Jubilee bringing freedom from oppression. Well worth studying in relation to the work of Street Church.
Some workers commented on the friendliness and helpfulness of those visiting these days with less edginess than in previous times and more cohesion. At least one Bible was distributed and the clothes cupboard appeared to be doing good business. Toiletries are always in demand and today we also gave out bottled water which went very quickly.
The workers in the kitchen were kept extremely busy and produced some delicious looking cakes fit for any special celebration. Grateful thanks must go to the caterers from Silverstone. Many people work quietly in the background, but essential to the smooth running of the sessions; hopefully you know who you are, we couldn't manage without you.
This week there was a mini circle time of one person requesting prayer, but we are anticipating that this will grow again in the next few weeks.
Please pray for the Trustees and Steering Group of Street Church as they meet this week. They carry a great responsibility for ensuring that things run smoothly, so that more vulnerable people can be helped.
Once again, thank you for all that you do to enable Street Church to meet needs. We especially value your prayers. Next week the Grand Union Benefice will be catering.
