Kashmir Catastrophe

Posted on 17 October 2005
The Church was open this week for three mornings to provide ‘space’ for prayer and reflection following this week’s earthquake in Kashmir. This was in addition to the usual cycle of prayer for world needs and the community that occurs on a daily basis at 8.45am each weekday morning.

Stephen Dray, the pastor of Ferndale Baptist Church, commented: ‘Disaster often leaves people with a sense of guilt and helplessness. Sometimes the opportunity to pray and reflect is a means of helping find the way forward… perhaps even to a new relationship with God in Jesus. We believe it is important to make provision for these felt spiritual needs in the community and to offer such support and guidance as we can.’
