Don’t forget the Picnic on Sunday 5th in the Spa Gardens. Full details in the link above.

It is half term next week and of course the Jubilee Bank Holiday too, so most of our regular event are having a break. However, make a note in your diaries for Sunday 5 June at 6.30 pm as this is our next “Restored” service. Everyone is welcome

Study and Courses

Please keep your eyes out for new courses coming soon. We hope to be running: Freedom in Christ; Digging Deeper; Alpha and Hope Explored and possibly others too.

Philippians 1.1-8

Mission Partner Prayer Focus

We have a new focus starting this week as we think on are Mission Partner – In2Out who support young people in custody or having recently been released.

  • Please pray for those young people that are coming close to their release.

It’s a time of real anxiety as they often don’t know where they will be going until days before release.

Pray for peace and the right places for them would be found in good time.

  • Please pray for our In2Out mentors.

Supporting our young people is not easy and often takes a lot of emotional energy.

Pray for protection, wisdom and insight so that they can speak powerfully into young lives.

  • Please pray for the handful of girls who are now housed in HMYOI Wetherby.

They are often very traumatised and particularly vulnerable,

and as a result they present a new challenge for prison staff and In2Out mentors to support well. 

Pray for connection and hope to start to grow.

The full In2Out Prayer update for may is here: In2Out

Other Prayers Please

Please pray for the Community of Ripon. The financial pressures are starting to impact upon our community.

This has reflected in an upturn in demand for Food Bank Services, Very Large numbers coming to our Breakfast Club.

Please consider helping at either of the two above: donation or physical work. And also continue to pray for Jed as he prepares for the CAP Work to start in the Autumn.
