Praying for the next Vicar at St John's
On Thursday 2nd May, interviews will take place to discern who God is calling to be the next vicar at St John’s Felbridge. What a privilege it is to be part of this momentous occasion by praying together. 

Wednesday 1st May
Open Prayer (2-5pm): The church will be open for anyone to come and pray. 
Prayer and Praise (8-9pm): As we gather as a church family, Luke will lead us in singing songs of praise and there will be the opportunity to pray together as we seek God's guidance. Please try to come in person but if you can’t then join us via Zoom (link to follow). 

Thursday 2nd May (Interview day)
Pray through the day (10am-4pm): People can sign up for hourly prayer slots so that the candidates and those on the selection panel can be prayed for throughout the day. Family prayer packs will be given out on the previous Sunday so that children and families can pray together. The church and hall will be in use all day for interviews so please pray from wherever you are!

John & Carol Evans, of Jubilee Church, is delighted to be hosting another "People Who Have Changed Our Nation" Guided Walking Tour in London on Saturday 28 September 2024 from 10.00 until 16.30. 
London's Christian history is amazing, as you know: people like Wilberforce, Whitefield, Tyndale, Wesley, John Newton, Elizabeth Fry, John Bunyan and many others have history in London, within walking distance of each other. Meanwhile, in the British Museum, there is actual Bible history: artifacts associated with Abraham, Hezekiah, Daniel, Isaiah, Paul and many others. 
The invitation is to folk at St John's to join this, one-day (10.00 - 16.30), guided walk through London's Christian history. We are very pleased that Ben Virgo, of Christian Heritage London, has agreed to lead this guided walk through London's Christian history - a truly unique opportunity to discover how the gospel has changed the world. Ben has been leading these Christian-focused tours since 2014. He spent years researching prominent Christians, learning how to tell their stories while walking the streets where these men and women lived, preached and served. 
For full details of the tour please click here
Christian Heritage London makes a charge at the end of the walking tour of £25 per person.

The EG World Day of Prayer team had a good follow up meeting discussing the success of this year’s recent services that had 105 people attending the two services despite the wild wet weather, and even more watching the live stream at the time or catching up when it suited them.
Thanks to all who supported the event - almost £600 was received in donations - which will be used for charities funded by WDP  (listed in next year’s booklet).
The next World Day of Prayer will be on Friday 7 March 2025 hosted by St John's and we will be praying for the Cook Islands.
There is still time to book for Bible by the beach. Click on this link to find out more.
