Fri 15 May
is today's Daily Worship. We pray for ancillary workers in our hospitals and the invisible front-line of cleaners and other workers across society who put their lives at risk so that our lives continue as normal and safely as possible.
We also remember Rev Peter Holmes, Vicar of St Peter's Norbiton and Chair of the Joel Community, whose funeral takes place at 11.40 this morning. Our Joyful Noise
is one of the hymns from his funeral service. This is the final verse:
When our hearts are wintry, grieving, or in pain,
Jesus' touch can call us back to life again,
Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
Love is come again like wheat that springeth green.

Join the global wave of prayer calling all Christians to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know the love and peace of Jesus Christ - May 21 – May 31 2020.
We are each encouraged to think of and then pray for 5 people who we would like to see come to Christ. The focus this year is also around ‘Prayer and Care’ with practical action accompanying prayer for others. Our THiS Team daily worship resources during this time will be based on material provided by TKC.
There will be a daily TKC Zoom prayer meeting at 7pm from Friday 22 – Saturday 30 May for 20 minutes lead across the Team (more details to follow) and a Team Ascension Day Service of Holy Communion led by Rev William Allberry with Rev Carolyn Lucas preaching. This will be available from the website on Thursday 21 May at 8.15pm.
