Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is the title coined for a worldwide prayer movement between Ascension and Pentecost. These days have always been infused with expectation and anticipation — as He ascended, our Lord Jesus Christ promised the gift of the Holy Spirit to enable the disciples to be witnesses. As those first followers waited for the promise to be fulfilled by constantly devoting themselves to prayer (Acts 1:11), so the renewed call across the church is to set these days apart to pray. In the gospels we read again and again how people would bring friends, loved ones, family members, and children to Jesus. This is the focus for our prayers in these next days — most particularly to bring to God five individuals, that they might have an encounter with Jesus Christ.

**Coronavirus Support**

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with Mary or Pauline if you need any support at this difficult time.

We have had many offers of help - have done 154 shops, 58 pharmacy collections, 2 "click and collects"  (15.05.20) - but more importantly supported the lonely and bereaved with numerous phone calls ...... providing reassurance and a listening ear. If you know anyone who would benefit from a bit of help please do let us know!

------------------------------------------------------

**Black Country Foodbank**


The foodbank will be under great pressure at the moment - inundated with requests - yet not receiving the usual donations.

The foodbank is accepting donations of food or money - please see their website for details of how best to give - www.blackcountryfoodbank.org.uk

Each Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning we deliver donations to the foodbank.

The response since the start of this particular appeal in April has been remarkably generous with 60 bags this week alone..... 3 large car loads... and a total of over 200 bags so far! (15.05.20)

Message from Joy Moss - from Replenish the Stourbridge branch of the Foodbank:

"Just to say a huge thank you to everyone from St Peters Church (and the wider community) for the tremendous amount of donations since lockdown. Just from May 1st up to yesterday (19th), 536kg of food and 107kg of toiletries has been given. Half a tonne of food in just two and a half weeks, from one church, is unbelievable! Please pass on our thanks and I will give a further update at the end of the month. Many, many thanks, Joy from Replenish."

 

Any food or non-food donations can be left in the porch of 128 Ham Lane, or, to arrange for collection please ring 01562 720393.
