FOR YOUR PRAYERS:

- at Eastertide we pray for all Christians throughout the world joining to celebrate the resurrection, as Eastern and Western churches celebrate on the same day. We remember especially those who face daily the threat of danger for being Christians. We pray for our sisters and brothers in the Coptic Church in Egypt, mourning the loss of loved ones in the Palm Sunday bombings.

- for peace and stability in our troubled and broken world, praying especially for Syria following the recent reports of use of chemical weapons and escalation in air strikes by the US. For other places where there is ongoing conflict, and where tension seems to be rising: North Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, South Sudan. For those fleeing their homes and taking risky journeys to seek refuge, that they may find food, shelter and safe places to live, and that before long all may be able to live in peace and security.

- for all affected by the terror attacks in Westminster and Stockholm, for the families of those who lost their lives, for all those injured and traumatised, that all may find the comfort, strength and support that they need.

- for the negotiations towards Brexit, that in this time of uncertainty all concerned may work together in peace, harmony and understanding for the good of all people, regardless of their nationality and economic status.

-  for this parish: for those living in Ashgrove, Bolton Close, Low Road, Parsonage Close, Poplars Close, Roman Close, The Leys, Tunbridge Close (Burwell), Chapel Lane (Reach).

- for those in our community receiving home communion on a monthly basis, “we being many are one body because we all partake of the one bread.”

- for those who are unable to meet with us, who are now in residential care, including Hazel Heathershaw, Pam Westley, Anita Chilvers, Lysbeth Grant, Phyl Sanford.

-  for those in special need: Tracey Fradd, Danny Pickard, James Hickish, Vera Lawrance, Freddie Claydon, Margaret Morley, Eleanor (Ella) Lee, Jennifer Harrison, Neil Fleming, Jackie Cross, Elisabeth Everitt, Norma Ellingford, Barrie Bushell, Barbara Mercer, Louise Smith, Charlie Thompson, Mike Quick, Evelyn Payne, Joan and Hugh Leadbeter.
