The Church held a Prayer Space this month, over two days. This was a new initiative which provided lots of creative ways to pray. Members and friends dropped in and took part in the various activities including a prayer tree, weaving prayers through a frame and identifying a country which needs prayer. Children and adults alike participated.
Monthly prayer gatherings are held on the first Sunday of the month at 7pm when we spend some time praying for our church and its various activities as well as topical matters around the country and beyond.
A House of Prayer on Monday 10 June in Church Hall beyond. A further opportunity to discuss the book Dirty Glory by Pete Greig. This meeting will discuss what practical steps we can take to make our church a house of prayer and to encourage one another to be a people of prayer.
Fireside Fellowship is an hour long weekly prayer meeting alternating between morning and afternoon on Wednesdays where we pray for people and situations within the church.
Upper Room prayer time is held prior to every Sunday Service in the Session Room above the Vestry, from 10.00-10.30.
PrayerNet is our monthly prayer sheet intended to promote a network of praying people. Allan Webster compiles the Prayer Net and he will welcome topics for prayer and inclusion in the PrayerNet. You can download the latest version here.
Our Prayer Promoter is Inge Samwell who, as well as promoting prayer within our church, ensures we are kept abreast of the Presbytery prayer initiatives, Women’s World Day of Prayer, our missionaries and World issues where Christianity and Christians are being suppressed and persecuted.

You can do more than pray, once you have prayed – but you cannot do more than pray, until you have prayed. Let us pray!
