A message from the Diocese: Sudan Emergency Relief Appeal
The Sudan Link working group want to thank all who so generously responded to the appeal; £70,000 was raised. It has not been possible to thank every donor personally, but we want you to know how much your gift has been appreciated and is making a difference to people’s lives. Thank you.

Our prayer for today:
you long for the world’s salvation:
stir us from apathy,
restrain us from excess
and revive in us new hope
that all creation will one day be healed
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Praying you all have a blessed, peaceful week – and hope to be able to pray with many of you at 6pm at some point during the week.
