Deanery Prayers this week

Whiteley Church

Vicar : Philippa Mills
Pioneer Minister : Amy Adeniran
Churchwardens : Vikki Potts and John Foxwell

They invite us to join them in giving thanks to God for:

  • work started on a new Cornerstone C of E Primary School;
  • continuing expressions of communal church life through online worship, telephone calls and distanced visits;
  • positive responses to the handmade butterflies, placed around woodlands and paths, and in the shopping centre.

Please pray with them as well for:

  • Amy and her family as she begins her maternity leave;
  • consultations and plans for ordering their new chapel, to be incorporated in the new Cornerstone School building;
  • deeper engagement with the wider local community through the church’s “Hopes & Prayers” initiative.


Sunday 5 July
Patronal Festival of St Peter

The Church is open for private prayer every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 11.00 am until 3.00 pm.
There will be someone there to welcome you and explain the arrangements to facilitate social distancing and strict observance of ‘Covid-secure’ regulations.

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
