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 Stella Allwood. If anyone is interested in being part of a triplet, or would like more information, please contact her on 480002 and she will try to help you.


 

Schools

ALWAYS BE AWARE - following an unfortunate incident a while ago in the church car park, when a car was broken into, may we remind people never to leave any items on car seats where they can be seen.

This applies at all times, but especially during the darker evenings.

She will text emergency prayer requests to those on the prayer chain, who will pray immediately.  

For non-urgent prayer requests, there is a book in the Lady Chapel where you may write the names of those who need prayer.  They are prayed for daily and will appear on our prayer list on the pew news, unless you request otherwise.





Church Bookstall - if you take items from the porch bookstall, would you please ensure that you don’t forget to put money for purchases into the box on the wall, as we are finding discrepancies between the amounts of money received and items listed as purchased.  Thank you.

Occasions – Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc.


Remembering Church Family Events Thank you to Ann Lee for 22 years of sending cards on behalf of the church to members celebrating special birthdays and anniversaries.  This role has now been taken over by Mary Smith.  We already have some dates for those who are part of Pastoral Link and chose to give details to Link leaders, but there will now be forms in church, so that everyone on our Family Roll, who wishes to be included, can let us have their dates.  We also like to send a card and message to church members who are ill, in hospital, or have lost a very close relative.  We can only do this if we know about it, so it would be very helpful if you, or someone in your family, could let Mary know - tel: 834717) .


Alternatively you can fill in an online form HERE and send it by email.

Our events for the whole Church will be organised by Tara Gamble and Sarah Jacklin. Our cards and gifts for the whole Church, for those who provide us with details of birthdays & anniversaries, will now be coordinated by Mary Smith.

‘FAREWELL BUT NOT GOODBYE’

It was with great sadness that we said our goodbyes to Andy and Kath at their final ‘farewell’ service on Sunday 13th October. The theme of the service was ‘living water’ and this theme was accented by many tears shed during the day. Andy preached, as he said, one of his longest ever sermons but it only seemed like seconds, as we were all aware that it would be his last as vicar of St. David’s.

Goodbye (for now) Andy and Kath. It has been our privilege and blessing to have had you as our spiritual leaders the last seven years.

We wish you every blessing for the future as your hearts continue to be filled with streams of ‘living water’.

CORONAVIRUS

Following the Archbishops’ joint announcement concerning the ongoing coronavirus  emergency,  services at St. David’s will be suspended until further notice.

Any changes or updates will be published on this site.

Click HERE for the latest details.

In the meantime, as we look towards Holy Week and Easter, the churchwarden’s and people of St. David’s will continue to work together and to pray for each other, showing compassion and resilience and, above all, caring especially for those who may be marginalised in our societies.

“May the Lord bless you and keep you.”

GOD WILL MAKE A WAY - Words & music: Don Moen

God will make a way

Where there seems to be no way

He works in ways we cannot see

He will make a way for me

He will be my guide

Hold me closely to His side

With love and strength for each new day

He will make a way

He will make a way


God will make a way

Where there seems to be no way

He works in ways we cannot see

He will make a way for me

He will be my guide

Hold me closely to His side

With love and strength for each new day

He will make a way

He will make a way


By a roadway in the wilderness

He'll lead me

Rivers in the desert will I see

Heaven and earth will fade

But His Word will still remain

He will do something new today


God will make a way

Where there seems to be no way

He works in ways we cannot see

He will make a way for me

He will be my guide

Hold me closely to His side

With love and strength for each new day

He will make a way

He will make a way.

HE WILL HOLD ME FAST

When I fear my faith will fall,

Christ will hold me fast;

When the tempter would prevail,

He will hold me fast.

I could never keep my hold

Through life’s fearful path;

For my love is often cold;

He must hold me fast.


Those he saves are His delight,
Christ will hold me fast,

Precious in His holy sight,

He will hold me fast.

He’ll not let my soul be lost;

His promises shall last;

Bought by Him at such a cost,

He will hold me fast.


He will hold me fast,

He will hold me fast,

For my Saviour loves me so,

He will hold me fast.


For my life He bled and died,

Christ will hold me fast;

Justice has been satisfied.

He will hold me fast.

Raised with Him to endless life,

He will hold me Fast,

‘Till our faith is turned to sight

When He comes at last!


He will hold me fast,

He will hold me fast,

For my Saviour loves me so,

He will hold me fast.


He will hold me fast,

He will hold me fast,

For my Saviour loves me so,

He will hold me fast.
