Notices of Week of 21 April 2022

Published by John Housley on

Food Bank Delivery 

Our first delivery was made to the Salvation Army Food Bank this week.  A big thank you to all those who contributed.  For the time being we will continue to be a collection point for donations, so if you would like to contribute please leave your items in the box in the Narthex. 

Hope Explored 

We are running a new short (3 week) introduction course (a kind of pre or stripped back Alpha) starting this Sunday.  Anyone is welcome, but if you would like to invite a family member, neighbour or friend this is the ideal course to find out why we have hope in Jesus.

Renew Ripon 

Has been running for a few weeks now.  Please remember it is on and if you feel you need some space to just come and be, just pop in.  It is an ideal place to bring a friend or neighbour who doesn’t normally come to Holy Trinity too.

Mondays 11.30 am to 1.30 pm 

Tuesdays 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm 

APCM 25 April 7.30 pm 

The APCM is the Annual Parochial Church Meeting of Holy Trinity Church.  This includes a service with a focus on praying for the Mission and Ministry of Holy Trinity Ripon and is a place to come to find out our big plans for the next 12 months and beyond.  Please come if you are able. 

Mission Partner Prayer Focus 

Please continue to pray for Salamati in Pakistan. 

Please pray for the head teacher at Al Huda Pre-cadet school, and the teachers at this school too as they stand firm and provide Christian education in a majority Muslim area. 

Pray for the children currently being sponsored. 

Pray for the Rev. Mushtaq Raza Vicar of St. Peter’s church Waseem Park Lahore – the contact person for Al Huda Pre-cadet school, and  the Rev. Akram Gill Vicar of St Oswald’s church Mughalpura Lahore, under whose supervision the food program is run. 

Also pray for the families we are currently supporting with food etc. 

Also, pray that the donated items of clothing etc that are to be sent to Pakistan this summer will be delivered safely and distributed wisely to those in need.  

Thank God for the generosity of those people who have supported us financially and with donations, that God will continue to bless them. 

Pray for our next project, a free clinic at Kot Radha Kishan. We will face opposition from the influential Muslims families, as they would not want to see help being provided for these poor families. Please pray that there will be softening of hearts.
