Prayers for Parliament and the Nation: Friday, 28 September 2018

" I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. "

- 1 Timothy 2:1-4

  • St Nicholas Church in Bristol, which closed after suffering bomb damage during the Second World War, will be reopened on Sunday with a vision of making Jesus known to the city's young adults and vulnerable people. Rev Toby Flint, formerly a lead pastor at Holy Trinity Brompton in London, will be leading worship at the church.

  • The cost of filling up with petrol or diesel could hit a record high within the next few weeks. Rising oil prices and the volatility of sterling due to Brexit negotiations, are threatening to push up pump prices.

  • Police have lifted their cordon on a church caught up in the nerve agent poisonings in Wiltshire earlier this year. The vicar of Amesbury Baptist Rev Barry Davis, said members were "relieved and delighted to return home” after what was a "troubling time.”
