Please join us in praying for Christ Church Balham, led by Andy Palmer...
Give thanks to God for:
- Remarkable growth over the last year, even during lockdowns. We're increasingly conscious that we're at the awkward stage of growth from small to medium sized church - pray for staff and elders as they lead the congregation through some organisational changes in response to our changing size.
- One part of that is everyone in the church being encouraged to discuss with others what their gifts are and where they might be able to serve the church community and the local community we're seeking to reach. Pray these discussions would lead to much joyful service and fruit.
- Growing us considerably in diversity in age and background and ethnicity. Pray that we as a church would display the beauty and wisdom of God in our diverse community as we reach out to the lost in Balham with the gospel.
Please Pray for:
- Our Connect Group leaders as they gather for a training day on 4 September - ask God to equip them with power to love their groups like Christ. Pray for Helen Thorne kindly visiting us to deliver some training on pastoral care.
