Prayer is conversation with God and we can communicate with him in lots of different ways – through words or music, in silence, on our own or with others. It can be liberating to remember that we should pray as we can and not as we can’t.
One way and another, there is a lot of prayer going on. One group of people is committed to praying specifically for the church, its leaders and current events. From time to time, we hold special prayer days or a week where we offer opportunities to pray round the clock.
Prayer ministry is offered after all our main services and there is also an opportunity to receive prayer for healing at the 10.00am service of Holy Communion, in church, on the second Sunday in the month. Those involved in prayer ministry have received training and are authorised by the Rector for this task.
Are you concerned for young people, their place in our church family and their developing faith?
If you are, then you will be interested to know that “Prayer Fest” exists to pray for the needs of our young people – including those who have gone off to University; taking a gap year or have entered the world of work.
Research indicates that young people between the ages of 14 -24 years of age are most vulnerable to leaving the Church or abandoning their faith. During this period in their lives they are often under a great deal of stress and pressure – from a variety of sources.
With this in mind “Prayer Fest” endeavours to support our young people by praying for them and their needs. We meet each third Sunday of the month in the Church Centre from 5.00pm for one hour of concentrated prayer. This is followed by light refreshments before the Evening Service at 6.30pm.
If you have young people in your family or share a desire to support our young people in this way you are very welcome to join us.
