Pray for ‘Spruce’, a gardening and landscaping training project to help long term unemployed people in Durham to get work experience and be helped into work. It has been set up by Handcrafted Projects with support from the Church Urban Fund.
Pray also for the growing links between ARC (one of CTC’s Pentecostal partner churches) and churches and College chapels in Oxford University – which are deepening understanding across very different parts of the Body of Christ. Young people from ARC visited Oxford last term, and will be singing at a special Eucharist in one of Oxford’s city centre churches in May. In addition, three students from Oxford have served as CTC interns at ARC, with one going on to work there as a Church-based Community Organiser.
