Weekly News – w/c 4th August

PLEASE PRAY for everyone on holidays whether ‘staycations’ at home or away. Help us to cherish the time we have for leisure and to reconnect with
each other and the wonderful natural world that you have put into our temporary care. We thank you for the wonderful countryside that surrounds us in Meltham – help us to wonder at it and look after it for future generations.

READ THE GOOD NEWS – Luke 12, 13-21
An abundance of possessions doesn’t define us, or show God’s blessings on us. We are blessed when we do not store up things for ourselves on earth.
