Placement Student
Next month we will be welcoming a placement student from the Willesden Ministerial Experience scheme, who will come and work with us at St Stephen's for the academic year.  His name is Enoch, he is 23 and currently living with his family in Harlesden, but will be moving into a community house with others on the scheme.  Enoch will be getting experience of lots of areas of church life - please make him welcome and offer him your encouragement and support.

Prayer for the Week
Lord God,
your Son left the riches of heaven
and became poor for our sake:
when we prosper save us from pride,
when we are needy save us from despair,
that we may trust in you alone;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
