Prayer Request

An Emergency Call to Prayer
for the City of Mosul
Samaritan’s Purse is calling on churches across the UK to take part in an emergency call to prayer for the Iraqi city of Mosul, ahead of the proposed offensive to retake the city from ISIS.

Mosul is Iraq’s second largest city and the primary remaining stronghold of ISIS in the country. As preparations are made for the offensive the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) warns that at least 700,000 residents from Iraq’s second city and surrounding areas will need urgent assistance in the form of food, shelter, water and medical support.

A recent report from  the UNCHR highlights the struggle these people will face whilst leaving the city:14-year-old Ali and his family fled Mosul recently, in a group of 23 people. The group were attacked and he saw his neighbours shot dead. Only five of the group made it out, the rest were captured or killed.

This story is, unfortunately, an increasingly common example of the lengths ISIS are going to in order to retain their grip on Mosul. The city is becoming increasingly fortified, with lines of defence consisting of booby traps and suicide bombers alongside ISIS gunmen. It is also becoming increasingly clear that ISIS intends to use trafficked women as human shields.
Samaritan’s Purse teams on the ground have been told to expect up to 200,000 people fleeing Mosul in need of assistance and protection within the first 24-48 hours. As such, our teams have been working non-stop to pre-position supplies in order to respond to the looming humanitarian crisis and provide critical compassionate and life-saving assistance to families in Jesus’ name.

Please take a moment to lift up the city of Mosul and the nation of Iraq. Pray for God’s guiding hand on the offensive and for the safe movement of families fleeing their homes.

'Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful' Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV)

May God Bless You,

Morning Celebration - 9th October 2016

This Sunday we have our Morning Celebration service, which as usual will be modern and informal and will include refreshments both before and after the service.

This month, with the help of any willing volunteers, we will be acting out the story of the 10 lepers, who were all healed, but only 1 remembered to say thank you.   We will be thinking about all the things in our lives we are grateful for, so hopefully it will be an uplifting service which you will leave with a smile on your face and a glow in your heart .

Do come along, we'd love to see you.
