End hunger fast day

DAY OF PRAYER AND FASTING in solidarity with the half a million people in the UK who needed help from food banks in the past year. Friday April 4th. Part of the End Hunger Fast campaign:

endhungerfast.co.uk/ follow on twitter: #fastapril4th

* Pray –
God of mercy and of plenty,
your Son fasted in the wilderness
and shared food with the people in a desert place: give us courage to resist the injustices around us, the will to end the hunger that shames our society and a share in your vision for a new world
where all shall have a place at the table of the feast; through Jesus Christ, the Bread of Life.

There will be a near-silent Eucharist at 6.30pm to end the day in thoughtful worship and prayer.

* Fast –
for the whole day, or miss a meal. Pledging to join the fast (forms at the back of church) helps to call on the government to act to improve the situation.

* Act –
The church will be open from 4-6.30pm to receive donations of items for the food bank.
