First Aid Training

Holy Trinity Ripon has been selected to host a First Aid Training Course on Saturday 23 July from 9.30 am. Places are free – though you can make a donation if you wish. We expect this to be a popular course so if you want to do this please follow the link and sign-up now: First Aid Course

Michelle’s Ordination

Michelle’s ordination service is on Saturday 25 June at 2 pm at Ripon Cathedral. There are no reserved seating options – so please arrive early for this as it will be busy. The service will not be available on-line. There is a celebration gathering afterwards. You will need to book for this so we can accommodate everyone safely and cater effectively.

Mission Partner Prayer Focus

Please continue to pray for our Mission Partner – In2Out this week. In2Out 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

Also Pray For

Our newish PCC has their next meeting on Monday 13 June. Please pray for all the members of the PCC and the work they are undertaking. Please pray especially for the new members.

Pray for Matt and the volunteers to come and support him for upcoming events:
