List of those in need of prayer: Gradually our list grows longer and longer….

The first section is for people who are in need of urgent prayer – many are now being treated for cancer or are in hospital, or having surgery. If you have asked for prayer for yourself or someone else who is included in this first category, please could you let Canon John or Jeff Wallis know you would like the name to remain. People do get better or improve and can come off.

The second category is for those who illness is stable and long term – dementia, the fragility of old age or other long term conditions.. That’s fine and we are more than happy to pray for them too but it is helpful to have a list for we focus more urgent prayer.

Please do let us know if a name can be removed…. It can always go back if things change!
