Talking to God.
We believe that prayer is a vital part of the life of a follower of Jesus. As a church family, we encourage one another to build a habit of regularly talking to God throughout daily life.
We also believe that praying together is important.
There's no need to wait for an organised event or meeting to pray with others but we do have a couple of regular large-scale prayer events for everyone to get involved in (see below for details).
We also make space to pray together as part of our Sunday morning meetings and there's Wednesday Morning Prayer (7.30am - 8am) every Wednesday in term-time. A link to join this is sent out in the Sunday email. There's also usually a City Group (or several!) who meet weekly to pray together.
A global prayer event.
ENOUGH is organised by a team from Relational Mission (our family of churches) and is an opportunity for us to pray in community with churches and individuals from over 40 nations.
The next ENOUGH event is on Friday 13th November. Everyone is encouraged to join in at 6pm in their time-zone and pray alongside everyone else, creating a wave of prayer and worship that travels around the world.
Resources and links to inspirational videos to guide your prayer will be emailed out in advance. To receive these you will need to register on the Prayers of Many website, where you can also find out more about the vision behind the events.
There are three two ways to take part:
As a household (or group of households) online.
Sign up using the link below to be sent the resources and work through them at your own speed.
With church family in person.
Due to the change in restrictions we are no longer holding an in-person prayer meeting.
Week of Prayer.
A week focusing on prayer.
However, wherever, whenever.
Because prayer is important, we set aside three one-week blocks each year to particularly put prayer at the top of the agenda.
Our next Weeks of Prayer are:
Sunday 10th January - Saturday 16th January 2021
Sunday 18th April - Saturday 24th April 2021
The exact format and timings of the organised sessions vary but the Week of Prayer is likely to include several one-hour events praying together, an extended time of communal worship, and an all-age, activity packed session of praying together (usually on Saturday afternoon).
