Special times of prayer
IT’S GOOD TO TALK
Many Christians struggle with prayer; many Christians feel guilty about their own prayers. Yet prayer is an amazing privilege. In prayer we get to talk to the Creator of the Universe; we get to talk to God. Most important people in the world never talk to me or would not answer the phone if we called. The Prime Minister never talks to us, yet God does.
Prayer very simply is communication with God. In the words of an old B.T. advert, “it is good to talk.” We do not have to use clever language or old fashioned words; we just need to be real and be open to what God will say to us.
Within the church there a number of Prayer Groups held both at Church and in homes.
Groups at Church
Prayer and Praise – Every second Monday at 7.30pm for about an hour.
Prayer Breakfast – 8.30am – 9.30am
Our Prayer Breakfast is held on the first Saturday of the month at 8.30 a.m. We share a meal sometimes of cereals, bread rolls, jams, fresh fruit and yoghurt and at other times cereal, bacon butties and fruit.
We then join together in prayer for our church fellowship seeking where God is leading us, for our community and for those concerns that are on our hearts finishing about 9.30.
Groups in homes
The second Thursday in the month mainly for Overseas Mission at 2pm for about an hour.
