ENVIRONMENTAL MISSION TRAINING DAY 8th June 2019 10am - 4pm St Mark’s Church, Harrogate
God’s creation is in trouble and consequently so are we. People are speaking up: students coming out on climate strike; councils such as Leeds, Kirklees, Otley, Harrogate, declaring climate emergencies; Extinction Rebellion protests; even David Attenborough has spoke up and called for action. But what would Jesus do? And what can my church do? Join us for a day designed to inspire and support you in this area of mission and ministry.
DAY RETREAT AT THE MIRFIELD CENTRE led by The Revd Prof Jessica Malay Prayer life and engaging in prayer. Friday June 14th 2019 10.00am-3.30pm £22.00 including lunch and refreshments

For our Prayers this week
The Archbishop of York’s Prayers for the European Union
God of eternal love and power, save our Parliamentary Democracy; protect the High Court of Parliament and all its members from partiality and prejudice; that they may walk humbly the path of kindness, justice and mercy. Give them wisdom, insight and a concern for the common good. The weight of their calling is too much to bear in their own strength, therefore we pray earnestly, Father, send them help from your Holy Place, and be their tower of strength. Lord, graciously hear us. Amen.
