CIRCLING THE CITY
This year’s Christian Aid walk is a little different. In place of the rolling hills of Kent, we will be marching around the churches of the City of London. We’re walking to raise money for aid projects in 37 countries. There will be a sponsor form in the church hall or you can give via Just Giving. As usual, Paul will be able to get matched funding so put your name down and double your money!

THY KINGDOM COME

You can do this by joining in with local prayer events or praying in the comfort of your own homes or on-line at www.thykingdomcome.global for more details). We will start these 10 days with the Deanery Ascension Day service on Thursday 10 May, 8.00pm at St John’s Church, Meopham. On Thursday 17 May, 9.00am at The Parish Room, Church Centre, Hartley there will be a Prayer Breakfast (need to book (01474) 704972 – donations for Christian Aid as it is also Christian Aid week) – all welcome. We’ll also have some resources to give out during this period. A big focus is praying for others to come and know Jesus in their lives so please make that a particular focus for your prayers. Rochester Cathedral is open daytimes for prayer and you can see our Deanery display. You can pray for your 5 in prayer for Called Together during this period, choose 5 people that you know in your life and prayer for them to come to faith. For those who were not at the service at Longfield, Ridley and Fawkham and Hartley, please either come to the service for Called Together at Ash on the 13 May or speak to your clergy team to find out more.
