Today we've two events:
All Saints Church in Dedworth, Windsor (SL4 4JW) at 12:00noon
St. John's, Egham (TW20 9HL) at 8:00pm
Today our prayer focus is our Reception to Year 6 Projects – Clewer Green, Trinity St. Stephen’s and Homer (Windsor); Iver Infants and Junior (Iver); and Town Farm (Stanwell)
One thing that we’ve learned through our work over the past 20+ years is the value of early intervention, and the difference it can make in the lives of those we support. In the past year, we worked with 226 children, young people and families on a short-term basis, where an early intervention made the difference between resolving issues and them becoming long-term, needing additional support. Our work across school years R-6 is testament to the value of early intervention, helping support children and families, ensuring they are best placed to thrive and grow, despite the challenges they face. Please pray for:
Encouragement for our team in schools, especially for Raj as she settles into the Iver schools
The teaching staff at schools as they manage the balance between work and home life
Pray for those children who find school difficult, including those who are fearful of the transition from first to middle or primary to secondary school
Pray for those families east to west supports – pray that we’d be able to help them in whatever areas of support they need
Pray for wisdom for Raj, Alisa and Tracey as they seek to bring hope to those they work with.
