Week of Prayer
The EBA Regional Team are encouraging churches to share in a week of prayer from 26-30 May in the lead up to Pentecost Sunday on 31 May.  Click on their website to find family activities, prayers, scriptures and downloads following the theme for each day:
Tuesday 26: our homes and families
Wednesday 27: our communities
Thursday 28: our frontline workers
Friday 29: the vulnerable, those affected by Covid-19, those who have lost loved ones
Saturday 30: for God's Spirit to break out in our churches, our communities, our nation and our world.

All are invited to join a Zoom time of prayer at 9.00am for 30 minutes each day.  Contact us if you would like the invite info to join these sessions.
New recruits needed!
We are so grateful for the skills, know how and hours of time and commitment that our rapidly assembled tech team for lockdown have poured in to making things work for us in recent weeks.  They could do with some help in the areas of Youtube, filming, recording, making short videoclips, editing, managing our online presence in various ways and anything else you may be able to offer!  Please contact us if interested and we'll put you in touch with the right person to explore this further.

The Girl in the Drawer
Many of you know and love Dee Larcombe, but most don’t know the story of her life.  Starting with a childhood spent in captivity and ending with reconciliation with her captors.  To encourage and uplift us all, Dee has ‘opened the drawer’ on some painful but amazing experiences and her walk with God, who has led her through them.  In so many ways now is a good time to be reading this book, so if you would like a copy then email Geoff Collett gdcollett@yahoo.co.uk who will ensure that you get your copy, whilst complying with social distancing guidance!  The cost is £5.
Prayer and Praise points have gone out today to those signed up to the Rehoboth distribution list.  Let us know if you would like to receive them and we'll add you to the list!  You can also opt in to communications about the other missions we support and also to our weekly pastoral prayer e-mail.
