These are clearly challenging days – unprecedented times of national and global emergency. In the midst of these circumstances, our need for God has never been greater. We echo the prayer with the Psalmist, ‘My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God,’ - Psalm 84:2. And so we pray: together, remotely, boldly and persistently, trusting that God will hear our prayers and answer. ‘The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles,’ - Psalm 34:17.
We warmly invite you to get involved with these new prayer opportunities.
24/7 Prayer Room (online) 14th - 20th September
'Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.' Isaiah 43-19
Join with us to pray for a fresh outpouring of God's Spirit in our lives, the lives of our neighbours, local communities, city and nation. As we seek to live by faith and not by sight, let's fervently and unceasingly pray, listening to His voice for fresh vision, direction and courage to join with Him in all the places He is already working. With prayer all things are possible, because with God nothing is impossible. Sign up below for an hour slot (or more) on your own, with a friend or with your group.

Prayer Ministry Training (online)
Online Prayer Ministry Training aims to equip and train you to pray effectively in the power of the Spirit. We are passionate for everyone in the church family to become confident to pray in this way, whether in groups (and in this season in groups over Zoom), with friends or at church. The course is a mixture of both theory, and time to practice. It requires attendance on two consecutive Thursday evenings, 24 September and 1 October. Register HERE or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
