Today's Prayer

Jersey: St Martin (Gouray)
Clergy: Jeffery Wattley
Licensed Lay Minister: Neville Brooks

Please pray with us:
2020 is an important year for our youth and children’s work, as we divide into three separate age groups for Infant, Primary and Secondary school ages. Pray also, for our two new Home Groups, one looking into Philippians and the other into Baptismal promises. We are also looking to launch a community coffee group to encourage engagement in our Village, and plans are being made for a Community Beach clean up, to strengthen our Eco credentials. Pray also for our Day Centre for the elderly and Mum’s and Tots group.
