From 25th-29th July a group of 89 young people (51 older, 38 younger) and 20 leaders from across the partnership churches will be heading to Cuffley Camp for Connect! Throughout the week will be teaching about how God is at work in a messed up world through the book of Ruth. We would really value your prayers for Connect this summer for the following things:
- Safe travel as campers and leaders arrive independently.
- For the practicalities of using a new site.
- Good integration and friendships as the young people from across the partnership spend time together.
- That those teaching the young people would know the Lord’s help and proclaim the gospel clearly.
- For the hearts of the young people to be softened and there to be some young people who trust Jesus as Saviour for the first time.
- For those young people who already follow Jesus to be strengthened in their faith.
- For safety during activities.
- For good sleep!
- For energy and patience amongst the young people and leaders.
Then through the week please pray for the following:
