This week, in our groups, meetings and homes, Give Thanks for those who accompany human rights defenders in Colombia.
Give thanks that their presence reduces the threat of violence against our partners, and Pray for the day when they’re no longer needed because their lives are no longer at risk.
Give thanks for the peace agreement signed in 2016. Pray that the government will fully commit to the final Peace Agreement, and will prioritise the protection of human rights defenders. Pray that everyone in Colombia will work to build peace in their country. [From the Christian Aid Prayer Diary.]

10:30amRev’d Malcolm Lorimer with Worship Leader Karen Foster ~ Holy Communion. The Communion Collections are used by Sandbach Methodist Church to make donations from its General Charity Fund to causes which it supports. This month the collection will go to support the work of All We Can.

If you are making a donation to the Food Bank, please would you consider items from the following list, which are the items we are most in need of at the moment:
tinned meat; instant coffee; long life fruit juice; UHT milk; sugar; tinned custard; jam (sorry we can’t take home-made); tinned fruit; tinned meals; tinned potatoes. Thank you.

Due to both Ruth and Ned Hilton’s continued medical treatments, Rev. Rob Hilton’s period of compassionate leave is to be extended until the end of November. Please continue to hold the Hilton family in your prayers at this difficult time. In the intervening period, Jeremy will continue to be acting superintendent.
Please see the letter from Rob on the Wesley Centre notice board.

Methodist Prayer Manual: The 2019/20 edition of the manual will be out soon, for use from September. It includes prayers throughout the month for Methodist congregations around the world, and also prayers for each UK Methodist District (including ours on the eleventh day of the month). It usually costs around £4, and if you’d like a copy, please ask Ann Horsfield, who has kindly agreed to order them.
