Prayer List



Can we remember this week:-


1) Derek White. Derek is one of our popular evening service organists. He had a nasty fall some months ago & has been in & out of hospital several times since. Progress has been very slow & he is currently bed-ridden & unable to walk at all.


2)  Continued prayer for Terry Keeling & family as Davina’s funeral approaches.

(Tuesday 10/11 at Stafford Crem.).


3) The Smith family (Moreton Street). Sadly - and following our celebration of the safe arrival of baby Alice on last week’s prayer list  Dave’s dad ( Emma & Scott’s grandad) passed away at the weekend. Our prayers go out to Dave, Paula & all the family.


4) Ann Matthews who continues in considerable pain with eye & various other problems.


In terms of Circuit- wide concerns we remember:-

1) Rev Bas Siddons & Doreen - both of whom continue to struggle with serious health issues.

2) Mary Mills ( Peter Mill’s sister-in-law) suffering with Myeloma ( a type of bone cancer).

3) The family of Jean Pedley  (a life-long member of our Upper Landywood  Chapel)

who passed away last week.


.....finally some good news for thankfulness & on-going prayer...


a) Peter Beaman (local preacher) who has suffered from Parkinson’s for some time is returning home today following a long period in Abbey Court. He will now have a ‘live-in’ carer.

b) Rev John Bates -  a very good friend of Chadsmoor. John & wife Pat celebrated their Golden wedding recently. Unfortunately following medical advice ( & indeed the advice of  Methodist Chair of District) they have been largely in isolation for many months. Speaking to John this week he particularly asked to be remembered to all the Chadsmoor family.....& as we do so we also remember both he & Pat in our prayers.


....& very finally... but very importantly... can we remember in our prayers ALL those ( and there are many) for whom this   return to ‘Lockdown’, necessary though  it is, will nevertheless  create particular problems...anxieties...concerns & worries of many kinds.
