SCHOOLS CHRISTIAN WORKER PROJECT Prayer Breakfast CANCELLED

Oswestry Methodist Church, 1, Chapel Street, Oswestry, SY11 1LF, 

for the opportunity to meet again for prayer on 

Saturday, January 2nd 2021

for the work of Jane Webber, our Schools Worker.

However, prayer must continue, since we are anxious to support the excellent efforts of Jane Webber, our Schools Worker, in local schools and colleges.  We propose to send you a series of monthly prayer points for thanks and intercession, with the request that you find a convenient quiet time to read them and reflect before our Lord Jesus Christ.  As soon as it is safe to do so, we intend to resume monthly gatherings (eventually including a breakfast!).  

Should you require further information, please email or phone me, Alan Braddock, on 01691 654991

Thank you for your continuing interest and prayers. May God bless you and give you a good new year.
