Public services in our parishes Week commencing 7 February

Police

  • Although the police offices are not in our parish areas, much of the work that the police from Garshake do probably is! Policing has changed a lot over the years, and there have been changes too to the sort of crimes that they are called to deal with (cyber crime, hate, abuse etc have come much more to the fore). They still, however, have to deal with sensitive situations where people are hurting or vulnerable, requiring sensitivity and kindness
  • Give thanks for the work of the police locally
  • Pray that they may be kept safe, may always strive to do what is right, without cutting corners, and have the humanity that vulnerable people need

Fire brigade

  • We hope that we never need them, but we are glad that they are there
  • Pray that they will be safe when they go about their work, and pray for the people they assist

Criminal justice service

  • Give thanks that we live in a country where we strive to have ‘the rule of law’
  • Pray for all those involved in the criminal justice system – judges, juries, lawyers, court officers, victims, witnesses, and those in the dock
