Exam Season is fast approaching!! With that in mind, we have set up an area at the back of the Church to remind us to taketime to pray for our young people at this important time in their lives. We have a book available and we invite you to write the names of all sitting exams over the coming weeks. This article discusses prayer for exam success.
