Prayer Focus:


Trustees play a vital role at east to west, not only keeping our Senior Leadership Team on track and holding them accountable, but also in holding the wider view of both what the charity is doing and what the future may hold. We are so blessed to have a wide mix of skills and experiences within our trustee team, who all care deeply and passionately about the work we do. Please pray for:

  • Each of our trustees by name

  • Pray for wisdom as they lead the charity and seek God’s direction for east to west

  • Pray that they’d feel encouraged and empowered in their roles, especially as they share east to west outside their trustee roles

  • Pray with thanks for Gill and her role as Governance Manager – pray that she’s be blessed as she blesses others

  • Pray for our trustee’s families, who play an active part in providing the secure base our trustees need to be the best they can be
