CHURCH FAMILY NEWS
A PRAYER FOR THE FELLOWSHIP based on Philippians 1:9-11.
Dear Father, as I picture and bring before you..............may their love overflow more and more; may they keep on growing in knowledge and understanding of what really matters so that they may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. May they be always filled with the fruit of their salvation – the righteous character produced in their life by Jesus Christ - for this will bring much glory and praise to God. Help them to model godly character and to show it in relationships on their frontlines with both non-Christians and fellow Christians and especially those in fellowship at Seedfield. Amen.

BEFRIENDER SCHEME
Would you like to be part of a new scheme right at the beginning? The befriender scheme is starting up in the area. If you could spare an hour every now and again to go into a local care home and be a friend to one of the residents, this is for you. It maybe something as simple as having a coffee and talking about 'the good old days'. If you would like to even consider this and would like more information contact Mary Smith 07928 520337 or Rev'd Gill Barnett 0161 971 6318
