Prayer for Schools

As our schools are now back in action following so much disruption and uncertainty, we offer these prayer points (as suggested by the Bible Society):

  • That children will settle well in their new classes

  • For the mental health and wellbeing of children following long periods away from school and their peers

  • For the confidence of young people returning to education after exams were disrupted, perhaps having received unexpected results

  • For energy and enthusiasm for teachers

  • For protection as school leadership and teaching and support staff work tirelessly to follow government guidelines and make the school environment safe for everyone

  • For parents and carers as they support the children in their care and adjust to new routines

  • For Christian children and adults in education to be courageous witnesses – a light and encouragement to their friends and colleagues

Heavenly Father, Please pour out Your blessings upon our whole education community in Alnwick – teachers, pupils, administrative and support staff.

We ask this in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

WANTED: New leadership for Mighty Oaks

Mighty Oaks Alnwick is a Christian outreach project providing a fully equipped coffee van which is manned by volunteers and deploys in the town centre on Saturday evenings. This offers hot drinks and a friendly point of contact for youngsters and other town centre visitors.

Due to Covid-19 this has been suspended since March 2020. We would like to get this back up and running soon – but to do this we need a new person or persons to take the lead on maintaining the vehicle and equipment and coordinating the team of hardy volunteers. The key tasks involved could be shared amongst a couple or more people.
