Women of the Bible

The launch date for this is at Trinity Tuesday on 7 June at 7.30 pm and then follows on each Sunday. Study Notes will also be available too.

Messy Church

Our next Messy Church is an Outdoor Affair! We plan to have games and activities in the Spa Park across the road and then the food will be a BBQ back in the Church Yard. This will be a great Messy Church to bring along friends! All happens 11 June at 4 pm.

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.

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

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.
