PRAYER TRIPLETS: Changing Lives through Prayer

Prayer triplets are groups of three people who meet to pray for one another, for family and friends and for St. David’s.  Pick up a leaflet from the foyer or have a word with the vicar for further information.  St. David’s prayer topics will be on the back of the weekly news sheet.  

Prayer Triplets are now being coordinated by Sandra Allen and Stella Allwood. If anyone is interested in being part of a triplet, or would like more information, please contact Sandra on 836634 or Stella on 480002 and they will try to  help you.

You may have noticed that we have cordoned off the area around the Church Tower. Our cross is mounted on two wooden beams that have become rotten and we are in the process of commissioning steeplejacks to remove the cross and side panels ready for repairs and refurbishment of the tower.

Please keep our architects Peter Rogan and Richard Brook, together with our Steeplejack, Pete Simmons, in your prayers for a successful and safe project. See pictures of the work being carried out HERE

Church car park - following an unfortunate incident in the car park, when a car was broken into, may we remind people not to leave any items on car seats where they can be seen.  



We still need help on two Sundays in August in welcoming children at our 10.00am services?  During the school holidays  children will remain in church for part of the service, but during the sermon and prayers activities will be provided in the choir vestry (material supplied).  A sign-up sheet is now at the back of church and help is needed for: 20th  &  27th  August

Foodbank box appeal

The Kingsgate food-bank at Greenhill Community Church relies on donations of food to help those in need.  Please consider buying an extra packet or tinned item when you are next out shopping.  Donations may be  left in the box in the church porch and will be passed on to GCC.  Thank you.

We start using the new Mission Praise hymn book from 13th August.  The PCC has bought 100 copies at half price (£4.49 rather than £9.99).  We hope that our congregation may wish to donate the price of one or more copies to help our finances.  Donations can be made in the jar at the back of church.

YOUTH WORKER - Our initiative to employ a part time Youth Worker for the Living Stones Mission Partnership (St David’s and St John the Baptist, Whitwick) is moving quickly and our proposals have been accepted by both PCCs and the Mission Partnership. Christian youth work for 11-14 year olds is part of St David’s renewed vision and we have the opportunity to partner with Heartland Youth for Christ to have a Youth Worker worshipping at St David’s and St John the Baptist, Whitwick starting in September or October. Our Youth Worker will help to run Youth Work in the Church, support the Drama Group for Teens and connect with young people in Castle Rock High School through the new Lunch time Club. Please pray for the next steps in applying for grants from the Diocese of Leicester to support this work and for our own financial contributions. To God be the Glory. Andy
