Bank Holiday Monday

Next Monday is a Bank Holiday, so please note many of the Church events that happen usually on a Monday are not happening. There is no:

Little Fishes at 9 am

Renew Ripon at 11.30 am

St John Ambulance at 6.30 pm

Everything else resumes after Monday

Little Fishes and all the other Monday activities back on Monday 9 May

Wednesday in the Arches

One of our house groups that meets on a Wednesday evening at 7:30 pm is having an open house session for the next 3 weeks. We will be running the short (3 week) introduction course: Hope Explored. This is designed for searchers but many feel it is a great course to do if you would like to be confident in explaining the gospel to someone using 3 main stories from Luke’s Gospel

Wednesday 4 May at 7:30 pm Wednesday in the Arches

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 (but not this week)

Tuesdays 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm 

Open the Book

Ripon’s Open the Book group have been videoing stories for the past 2 years but next week we are once again performing live in Ripon’s Schools. Please pray for the group and the children.

Mission Partner Prayer Focus 

This is the last week focusing on Salamati in Pakistan. We will have a new focus next week.

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.
