TO ALL SUPPORTERS OF  THE SCHOOLS CHRISTIAN WORKER PROJECT 

Dear Christian friends, 

As you will understand, because of the national emergency, our regular breakfast-time prayer meetings for the Project are cancelled until further notice.  That does not mean that prayer will cease, and we are still grateful to all those churches who had kindly agreed to host the meetings.

If you have seen the prayer diary which Jane, our Schools Worker, published for April 2020, you will know that she requests general prayer for four groups together with prayers for specific schools.  She writes:

Please pray for

  • Young people as they get to grips with learning from home and not seeing their friends.
  • Teachers that are still working in the schools, providing sessions for those whose parents are key workers.
  • Parents who may feel inadequate to help their children learn from home.
  • Young people with learning difficulties who may be struggling with anxiety and change.

Lakelands School, The Marches School, St Martins School, North Shropshire College, Weston Rhyn Primary School, Morda Primary School, Selattyn Primary School, Trefonen Primary School, Bryn Offa Primary School, Whittington Primary School, The Meadows Primary School, Criftins Primary School, Cockshutt  Primary School, Moreton Hall School, Oswestry School, Ellesmere Primary School, Welshampton Primary School, Gobowen Primary School, Holy Trinity Primary School, Woodside Primary School, West Felton Primary School, Kinnerley Primary School.  

Thank you for your continuing support. 

May God bless you

Alan Braddock, 

Breakfast Coordinator
