Thy Kingdom Come -10-20 May
he Archbishop of Canterbury is once again urging churches across the world to use the 10 days leading up to Pentecost to pray for people to come to faith in Jesus Christ. Sign up to get involved and encourage everyone in your church to pray especially for five people.

Prayer for Peace - Saturday 4 August
Could we set up several events around the Island for this national Day of Prayer? - On 4th August 1918 King George V called a national day of prayer; 99 days passed and on the 100th day the war ended. In 2018 we will be marking the 99 days before Armistice Day on Sunday 11th November 2018, praying for peace in the world but also peace in the hearts of men and women, that they might be reconciled to God through Jesus.

Pray for Newport
I went to the ‘Shaping Newport’ Business Workshop last week, where there was a lot of common sense and some good discussion. No massive surprises, but as well as the predictable subjects (parking, traffic, general tattiness, lack of things to do, too many empty shops / charity shops / betting shops, etc.), there was a general feeling that Newport has lost its heart / vision / sense of purpose. Apparently, some holiday coach parties that come over (and still love the Island) now ask to be taken to Bournemouth on day trips in preference to Newport!
It seems to me that this loss of vision and purpose is a valid matter for prayer / thought / engagement in some form or other, particularly for Newport churches.

Please Pray for ‘Community Spirited’ 
A care agency with a big heart. It was born out of faith and the love of God. We are very family orientated and are having trouble recruiting the right people who want to make a difference. The people who work for me are not all Christians but they have a very caring nature.
Our services are in demand, we would like to recruit carers in the local areas of East Cowes and Wootton to cut the travel time for them and us.
We are also preparing to reach out to people with our community group called ‘Community Spirited Cafe’ - a place where the vulnerable people of our community can feel safe and valued. Where we can work together for a much more positive future.  Where we can do God’s work.

    Why call it "Pipeline"?
    On one special occasion last year we met with Steve Lee who has been working extensively in the former Calais Jungle and amongst the potential immigrants into the UK. During his visit he made us aware of the amazing PLUTO pipeline which was laid across the Chanel from the Island during the war to fuel the defense of  freedom in Europe. There is we believe great prophetic significance in that pipeline which is why we have named this Prayer Newsletter "Pipeline". We want to see the oil or fuel of the Holy Spirit released and the purposes of God fulfilled in the Island and abroad. Take a look at the Video.

    Why a Prayer Newsletter

    The Wight Church Network has hosted and encouraged prayer opportunities over the last 5 years including Prayer in the Minister and latterly TNT where we have been able to gather from across the denominations and across the Island asking God for Transformation in our Community. We have also prayed regularly for local ministries, mission initiatives and community agencies within the Urban Trinity. There are many important things to pray about and we have now started this Prayer Newsletter to pass on to each other the information we need to pray wisely and strategically.
