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

Brian Martin
Please join Brian and Christine in thanking our Heavenly Father for Brian’s quick return home and clean bill of health from the Cardiologist following what turned out to be a vasovagal attack. Thank you so much for praying. We were very conscious of God’s love for us through you.

Katharine Spellman
Katharine would like to thank everyone for all the cards, flowers and kind thoughts following her husband David’s death. The church has been so supportive in so many ways including helping with the arrangements and assisting at the funeral. Thank you for everything you have done.

Jean Evans (friend of Rosemary Kennedy)
Rosemary writes: “My Christian friend Jean has completed 5 chemotherapy sessions and ended up in a cancer centre, short term. She had a terminal diagnosis and had many Christians, praying for her and prayer on several continents.  Jean asks me to pass on her very grateful thanks to St Johns for praying.  The answer is above all we ask or think and the result is that she has very little cancer left and this may resolve.  She believes that the Lord will heal her now. She hopes to have her 6th Chemotherapy treatment 6 at the end of the month.  Please pray for this.”

Sid Ball (father of Sarah Ball)
Please pray for Sid who is shortly due to have an operation. Also, Sarah has experienced some answers to prayer regarding her energy levels, which recently have been better than normal, but she would appreciate continued prayer for healing as she struggles with ME.

Robert Bridge (brother in law of Debby Bridge)
Please pray for Robert who had a significant heart attack on Saturday 9th September. Following this he had four stents fitted. Pray for good recovery for him and pray for his family, who have been quite shocked by the event.

The Moore Family
Peter and Lesley Moore would like to thank everyone for their prayers following their recent bereavement. Pete’s Mum’s funeral took place on Wednesday 6th September. Please continue to pray for them and Pete’s wider family as they come to terms with their loss. Continued prayer for their daughter, Sarah, would also be welcome as she is still very fragile and lacking in energy following on from her recent stay in the QE.

Elizabeth Brown (mother of Helen Van Vliet)
Helen writes: “Thank you to everyone who has been praying for my Mum, Elizabeth. She has made a miraculous recovery and is now at home. She can walk with a stick, and is working towards a complete recovery. Please continue to pray for perseverance and courage as she works at rebuilding her strength, and that she would be able to sleep well, and join with us in praising God for His clear hand in all of this.”

Parents of Andrea Mason
