Bermondsey prayer walk

Today as part of our Week of Prayer we had a
prayer walk along the boundaries of our two parishes.

From St James's Church we walked down to the river (the parish boundary goes down the middle of the Thames), and then via West Lane and Southwark Park Rd into St Anne's parish.

After stopping off for refreshments at St Anne's we went back into St James's parish walking along Neckinger to the boundary with St Mary's parish at Dockhead before returning to St James.

 On the way we prayed for the city of London as a whole and its new mayor (looking across the river to the City); for the work amongst elderly and retired people (outside Bluegrove Care Home - above); for Fresh Expressions of church outside St Crispin's, and for schools, outside the City of London Academy (left).

Whilst all this was going on, St James's Church was being got ready for Tim and Florence's wedding this afternoon.

And the sun came out just in time.

Every blessing to you both as you begin married life together.
