People in our fellowship who are ill but not mentioned by name in the list below.

Caroline Gilmour-White
Caroline, ex Living Stone, plans to move to a nursing home in September.  She would value prayer for energy to ‘stay the course’ and manage all the changes that need to be made before the move.

Lesley Osborn
Lesley has sent us an update: “I am being prepared for when I need dialysis. My main prayer request is that I can manage without it for as long as possible. I have been well enough to have a short holiday for which I am very thankful.”

Sarah and Richard Gough (returning members of St John’s)
Update: Sarah, Richard, Isobel and Eleanor have now found a place to live in Harborne but are still waiting on a Yr 1 school place for Isobel. They would value prayer that this is resolved in the near future.

Father of Pat Brydon
Pat has asked us to pray for her father, aged 89, who has been diagnosed with bowel cancer and is awaiting surgery. Please pray for his health and wellbeing, for healing and a good recovery, and that he would know God’s goodness and love for himself personally.

Christiane Neumann
Update: Christiane is grateful for our prayers.  She continues with chemotherapy, with two more treatments prior to surgery.  She would value on-going prayer for healing but says she is generally in good heart and thanks God for that.

Alison and Leonard Browne
Pray Alison and Leonard Browne following the recent death of Alison’s mother. Pray for Alison, Leonard and her father Tom at this sad time.

Pray for Leonard and Alison, and Alison’s father as they settle into the vicarage and to life in Harborne.
