As we have some time off to recharge and rest, please pray that we can “switch off”. Thank God for Grace, John, Sadie, Joe, Susanna, Eddie, Justin, Michelle, Louise, Livvie and Hepsi; for their sacrificial commitment to every Wednesday afternoon to invest in the young people of Gt Yarmouth. Thank God for the provision of Lorraine and pray that she will be excited about this new job. Pray for peace for her as she transitions both financially and from a job where she is comfortable and confident, to something new and unknown. Pray for Ali and Lorraine’s relationship, that it will be honouring to each other and God and that they will use their strengths and gifts to build each other up and support and encourage each other
Please pray for all the school staff; those who are new and those who have been here for many years. There are still even more changes in the pipeline and some challenges continue as we finally become an Academy after all these years. Please continue to pray for positive conversations and a smooth final transition period
