Prison Chaplaincy

Mission in Ireland, Chaplaincy

Rodney Cameron serves as chaplain at Maghaberry and Magilligan Prisons.

Pray for Rodney as he visits prisoners and seeks to share the good news of the gospel with them, bringing them the possibility of a new life in Christ. 

Pray for those prisoners who have given their lives to Christ and that they will continue to grow in their faith and love for the Lord. 

Moldova

Global Mission

A team of 12 people from various Presbyterian congregations returned home on Saturday (19th August) after serving with the charity 'Vision of Good Hope’ in Moldova. They were involved in community outreach, delivery of food parcels to poorer families, maintenance of village houses, visiting an old people's home, running a Bible club for children in an orphanage, and visiting a local church.

Give thanks for the various outreach activities that the team was involved in.

Pray that many of those they met will have witnessed the Lord at work through the words and actions of the team. 

Give thanks for the good health and safe return home of the team members.

 

Dementia

Social Witness

The number of people suffering with dementia is increasing. People with dementia often experience feelings of loneliness and isolation, something which can be helped by social contact.

Pray that we will all be more aware of our neighbours or members of our church family who are feeling isolated and that we will look for opportunities to be more inclusive.

Pray that carers will feel supported and receive help to deal with the emotional and physical demands of caring for a loved one with dementia.
