Please pray:


  • For us all to use Lent well;
  • for each of us as we pray over how God might be calling us to serve him;
  • for the work of Tearfund;
  • for all who suffer because of wars, terrorism, harsh rule and natural disasters;
  • for those who live in Winfrith Flats & Winfrith Way;
  • for all our PCC members;
  • in our Romsey Deanery, for the churches of the Test Valley Benefice (Stockbridge & Somborne area).
