Petworth Area Churches Together - working together in harmony
The Petworth Foodbank continues with about two/three calls a week – it is a privilege to be able to provide a practical helping hand to those in need. A big thank you to John Riddell who has steered the operation for the last 5 years – he’s now stepping down and the trusty team of volunteers will continue to support the recipients of food parcels. An enormous thank you to you all!
WEEKLY PARISH PRAYER - AT PLAISTOW CHURCH EVERY SATURDAY MORNING
Each Saturday morning at Holy Trinity Church in Plaistow we gather for half an hour of prayer, beginning at 8.30 am and finishing as the clock strikes nine o'clock. Everybody is welcome - whether you have something specific to pray for or not. You can voice your prayer openly or keep it private or simply affirm the prayers of others. It's not a service as such - there are no processions, rituals, hymns or music. We just sit around the big table and pray.
