David Goodall: May 2016
Lynne Graham and Julie Woodford from Prudhoe Methodist Church are undertaking a prayer walk from the source of the River Tyne to the Sea from 8th to 17th June followed by a boat trip to the sea on 21st June. They believe that this time of walking and prayer each day will be a real blessing to them and to the work of God in Tynedale.
Lynne and Julie would be delighted if others would like to join them and Casper the dog for a days walk during the Every Step A Prayer Walk or for a time of prayer each morning. If you would like to join them for the walk please contact Julie by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (07795 325393) or to join them for the prayers please just turn up.
