Please join with us in praying for Becontree Church, led by Rob Newham…
Praise God for:
- The wonderful way God has faithfully kept his people during this time of physical separation.
- The comfort that Jesus is with his people, even when we can’t see him (Matthew 14).
- His provision of two new and mature Christian families, just when we were set to lose Mike and Debbie, back in February.
- Rob and Hannah happily expecting twins... due in January 2021. Much church family excitement!
- His word challenging one of our teenagers about living a double life.
Please pray for:
- Matthew’s gospel to continue to grow our confidence in Jesus, through adversity, to be followers of him.
- Us to resume our visiting as the lockdown eases. Though usually this is a weekly activity, even short breaks from it make us feel ‘rusty’.
- God to be preparing us, even now, and getting us ready.
- Us to employ an assistant by the end of this year, initially to work with us for the next 3–5 years, and then to lead a new church plant to the new developments being built as part of the London Riverside Opportunity Area (https://www.london.gov.uk/what-we-do/planning/implementing-london-plan/opportunity-areas/opportunity-areas/london-riverside)
- Our new ‘cluster’ Bible studies in gardens (born out of the lockdown) to continue to disciple people to follow Jesus in every area of life
