Sunday 31 May is Pentecost SUNDAY

We are all invited to a Zoom Prayer Meeting for an hour at 2pm

Join Zoom Meeting

Meeting ID: 825 3822 7335
Password: 9thsFj

A few of us have decided to mark Pentecost this Sunday (31st) by a time of prayer for the world and invite you to join us in a Zoom meeting to pray at 2.00 pm, across all our churches . The websites of Christian Aid and Tearfund give lots of ideas and even ready- written prayers for us to share. Do look them up! Christian Aid's 'Please pray for us' link We suggest that we come prepared with a theme or written prayer and join together for an hour. Among needs that require our prayer are: Bangladesh and area recovering from storm with 85 deaths, Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, flooded in places with mud and the threat of Coronavirus, the displaced in Syria, refugees near and far, Southern Sudan, Malawi (hunger), suffering Church, world leaders, children, and what a return to normality might mean for us, the climate and the poor. We do hope you will be able to join us and take part. Click the link below, ready for a 2pm start. Do pass this on to others who may be interested.

Contact with specific questions. Even those church buildings that are normally open have been closed. All church buildings are to close for public worship and private prayer. there are no exceptions and no ambiguaity.. But as Bishop Nick says the worship of the church continues. It is being done differently. Through the prayers of clergy and laity, through prayer in homes and families and social media we still meet, pray, care and worship.

Note: Settle as a whole has a Community Response

We offer prayers for all who are caused distress in the current situation: whether due to not being able to visit relatives in palliative care, or who are seeing their jobs and incomes vanish, or have extra work and responsiblilites

What are churches nationally and locally around Settle doing about climate change? Find out by Downloading the paper that Judith Allinson wrote in Feb 2020 on this topic .. But shouldn't we be doing a lot more? .

The UN Secretary Genreal, Antonio Guterres says the fight against climate change is far more important that hte pademic and yet global fossil fuel companies are still subsidised with 300bn pound each year. Guterres said - "I call on everyone - from government, civil society and business leaders to individual citizens - to heed these facts and take urgent action to halt the worst effects of climate change." (See pictures at end pf this page)
