Phyllis Haverhand

We heard from Angela (Phyllis Haverhand’s daughter) that Phyllis passed away in her sleep over last week-end (15th/16th February).  Her Funeral Service is on Wednesday 4th March at 9.45pm at Hutcliffe Road Crematorium.

Everyone is welcome.  Please remember Angela, Jane and the wider family in you prayers.  We thank the Lord for all our memories of her.


Items for Prayer

For the Leadership Team as they meet on the 2nd, may they feel the Lord’s presence leading and guiding them.

For Andy and Carolyn as they prepare to move and plan for the future.

For Frank still having problems with his hand and also having to attend the Hypertension and Falls Clinic.

For Helen (Pre-School Leader) and her family as they adjust to life without Stuart.

For Ping out in China that she will be kept safe from the Coronavirus.

For Nicola and family as they move out of the Manse, may everything go smoothly for them.

For Michael, no news at the moment.

For Howard that he will continue to improve.

For Tricia still having up and down days.


Pause for Thought

Life is too short for us to do everything we want to do; but it is long enough for us to do everything God wants us to do.  Anon

As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home every day.  Anon

When you get tangled up in your problems, be still.  God wants you to be still so HE can untangle the knot.  Anon
