Alton Webteam: June 2019
Congratulations to the 12 walkers who braved the weather and set off from Rowledge Methodist Church to walk the 10.6 miles to Alton on the last stage of the Circuit Prayer Pilgrimage.
In the 9 days between Ascension and Pentecost Rev Chris Blake visited all the churches in the Circuit and was thrilled that 92 people joined him on at least one of the walks. Many others generously provided refreshments and were on hand at the end to transport the weary walkers back to their cars.
Thanks to the very useful prayer booklet put together by Rev Philip Simpkins, even more folk within our congregations were able to join in this global prayer initiative. Let's continue to pray for ourselves and our churches "Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done Lord"
