Prayer Life

Lord, because you have made me, I owe you the whole of my love; because you have redeemed me, I owe you the whole of myself; because you have promised so much, I owe you all of my being. 

I pray you, Lord, make me taste by love what I taste by knowledge; let me know by love what I know by understanding. I owe you more than my whole self, but I have no more, and by myself I cannot render the whole of it to you. Draw me to you, Lord, in the fullness of love. I am wholly yours by creation; make me all yours, too, in love. Amen.

– from Anselm (1033 – 1109)

Volunteer Opportunities at ICM

Kid’s club Specialist help needed. We have around 30 – 40 children that come to Kid’s club every Saturday. Teams from our partner churches help out but we have 3 children who have very specific special educational needs, which are proving to be challenging given our constraints.  We are in need of an Educational special needs specialist who could a) come and train our staff in better ways to facilitate these children or alternatively b) who could train a small volunteer team from your church to help with these children on a monthly rota. 

 

Please contact Cecilia or Martin for more information.
