Belfast: Orangefield4th April 2021

Rector: Ross Wilson

  • Praise God that we have been able to start Phase 1 of our church refurbishment, carrying out essential repair work to leaking walls and roof and upgrading our ancillary rooms.
  • Please pray for everything to go smoothly, and for God to provide the funds for Phase 2 speedily (new entrance, social area, audio–visual and upgrading the church sanctuary).
  • Please pray for our return to in–church services (hopefully from the Easter weekend), that all would go smoothly and safely and for the congregation and community to be built up again.
  • Pray for wisdom in the phased return of children’s and youth work and community outreach groups.
  • Please pray for the building up and maintenance of our online work, our website revamp and social media presence, especially as life gets busier again with a small staff team. Above all, pray that this channel of communication will impact those who don’t know Jesus with the good news of the gospel and build up their connection with God and his church.
