Let’s Pray For Social Witness
Pray for all the home managers within CSW as they continue to work through the most challenging period in the life of the Social Care Sector – that they may guide their teams with renewed energy into this important transitional time of returning to more normal routines. Give thanks that we are blessed with managers, who have shown great dedication and compassion over the past 15 months.
Council for Public Affairs
Following a recent meeting of the Council for Public Affairs pray for Rev Daniel Kane
in his role as convener and as the Church seeks to have its voice heard clearly in the public square.
As congregations in Northern Ireland plan ahead for summer activities, pray for guidance for

Council for Training in Ministry
Three lecturer posts are vacant in Union College due to recent or pending retirements, and through colleagues moving on to new roles.
