The Gospel is central to everything at St Thomas More and therefore prayer for our school is high on the “to do” list.
More Prayer Time…. is a new gathering of parents and teachers who meet for approximately one hour every half term to pray for the needs of the school.
We are registered with Pray For Schools and further information about this organisation can be found on their website: www.prayforschools.org.
We are currently a small group but look forward to meeting with more parents and teachers in the future.
Our next meeting is:
We will meet again in the Autumn Term – date to be agreed
More Prayer Time – May 2017
Psalm 127 (NIV)
Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labour in vain:
We prayed for the current school finances and for provision for the coming year; for the Governing Body and the newly elected parent governors; for staff recruitment and for the school building.
Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain:
We prayed for the pastoral staff and cover supervision; for the mental health training that North East Counselling Service are providing for sixth formers, to be able to support other students; for the physical health of students and staff.
In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat – for He grants sleep to those He loves:
We prayed for the Senior Leadership Team, for annual reviews taking place; for students preparing for and taking exams; for all staff with busy timetables and workloads; for the ‘next year 7s’ preparing to start in September, for the appeals taking place for those who did not get a place at the school.
