Five URC Churches in the Dales

Welcome to the Tees and Swale Mission Partnership Website

We are a group of four churches of the United Reformed Church in Darlington, Northallerton and Swaledale that work together with a common aim. Explore this website by the tabs above to find out more about us.

(see below for our continuing worship provision options during the pandemic. Individual churches may have further options - please see their pages.)

A Prayer of Intercession for the week

Come and see,
and join in praying for the people of the world waiting to hear good news.

Loving God, we pray for the states of America to be united in the days and weeks ahead.
We pray for an end to violence, for wisdom and protection for President-elect Joe Biden and all who will take office in a few days' time. We pray for those threatening to disrupt the inauguration, and for the police force and those entrusted with keeping the law and peace.
Lord, hear our prayer and draw us all closer to you.

We pray for those around the world at the mercy of extreme weather conditions.
We pray for the people of Japan, of Indonesia, especially those rescue workers who died trying to save others, for those bereaved in the plane crash, for those in our own country without power and heat. We pray for those tackling the climate change challenges of our time and for our own response in our day to day lives.
Lord, hear our prayer and draw us all closer to you.

We pray for all who are pushed to their limits at work and at home, for Intensive Care Staff, for all in the emergency services, for GP's, teachers and school staff, for parents and students, for all whose mental health is at breaking point. We pray for our Government and all whose decisions affect millions of lives. And we pray for one another as we respond to the restrictions locally and nationally.
Lord, hear our prayer and draw us all closer to you.

We pray for those whose businesses are closed, whose shops are locked up, whose rooms have no guests, for those whose money is running out, for those on the brink of despair.
Lord, hear our prayer and draw us all closer to you.

We pray for your church, entrusted with the good news of Jesus, and charged with serving all those in need. We pray for hospital chaplains, for those ministering to the bereaved, and for one another as we seek to share our faith and our hope in Jesus Christ.
Lord, hear our prayer and draw us all closer to you.

Amen.
