Welcome to Life Church Petersfield Online
We are part of the Church in Petersfield, a market town in Hampshire, UK. You have found a place to encounter God and people who care about you just as you are. Our prayer for you is that you will come to know Jesus and receive His love and forgiveness.
We know that there is a lot of individual prayer going on in the church, and within Life Groups, but it’s also good for us to gather together as a church from time to time, and for everyone to know that they can bring prayer requests to the church if needed. This appears to be particularly pertinent as we are in such unknown times with many people concerned about do much. So we have now set up some virtual prayer rooms throughout the week. These are opportunities for us to gather together to pray for individuals’ needs and wider issues, for example Pete Greig’s call to pray at 7:14 twice a day for God to heal our land and awaken us spiritually. So if you want to join in praying with others from Life Church Petersfield, or have specific requests that you need prayer support for, join one of the following sessions:
Tuesday 7pm hosted by John Callaghan
Friday 7am hosted by Pete Thomas
Sunday 7pm hosted by Mike Gibson
Each prayer room will be open for at least half an hour, with the
actual duration determined by the demand and desire at the time. We will use the church’s account for Free Conference Call, which is very similar to Zoom, with a few advantages. Whilst it is pretty intuitive to some people, here are the instructions for its use for these prayer rooms:
If joining by phone (no Internet or computer needed), you will need the number and access code which can be obtained from the Life Church Office or by asking one of the Hosts (above).
If joining by computer or tablet (no special apps are needed) click on
the link, which you can get from the Church Office or the meeting
Host, or type it into your usual web browser:
If it’s your first time, accept the terms & conditions, type in your name and an email address (you don’t need to set up an account)
Click on the “Join” button
Click on the picture of a telephone – if asked whether to dial in by phone or use your computer’s microphone, choose the latter
Click on the picture of a video camera to start video (if you want)
So let’s respond to the call to pray for healing and awakening, whether personal or national.

Becca, Pete and Martha
Beautiful & expertly made masks from Belinda.
The first is the type used in hospitals with pleats that open up to cover a lot of the lower face.
The second photo shows a different design which comfortably fits over the nose and mouth.
They all have ties. They cost £2.50 each.
I told them it had slipped my mind
They asked what else I had forgot
They clearly thought I had lost the plot!
I phoned my wife again to ask
She reminded me of this special task
“I need some flour to bake a cake
With all that cream you made me take”
“Ah yes, I recall” I had to lie
I dare not ask what flower to buy
But then I saw them at the tills
A bunch of golden daffodils.
I wandered lonely as a cloud
Two metres from the maddening crowd,
When all at once my name was called
To enter Waitrose hallowed hall.
This was the pensioners special hour
I’d gone to get a bag of flour
But I forgot -
What I had gone to Waitrose for.
The Waitrose staff are extra kind
Update from In Ministry to Children, Colombia
Since the national lockdown began in March, the informal economy has virtually shut down, which has greatly affected the families in the communities most in need as they tend to be day labourers and street sellers. The social emergency is as pressing as the health emergency -
The red cloth in the window has become a sign for passers by to come and help, a petition for support and food, but is also a symbol of protest against social inequalities which this crisis has deepened.
Thanks to God and to our donors, the team in Colombia have been able to provide generous food parcels to numerous families during the quarantine in La Guajira, Fusagasuga and Bogota, taking a bit of pressure off the families in this difficult and worrying time where they find themselves with no money and no employment.
As the lockdown continues, please pray for the team as they reach out to many vulnerable families with pastoral, spiritual, educational and financial support.
