Week of Prayer


We’re starting the Autumn term with a week of prayer. The goal is to encourage each of us to spend time where we can come into God’s presence. We want to encourage everyone to engage wherever we are during the week. 

 

Prayer Space: Mon - Fri

Network House will be open 9am - 4pm to use a variety of interactive prayer stations in the dedicated prayer space.

 

Evening Meetings: Mon - Fri

There will be evening prayer and worship meetings from 8 - 9.30pm culminating in an all church prayer and worship night called ‘The Presence’ on Friday from 7.30 - 9.30pm. This will be a great chance for the whole church to gather to worship, pray and seek God together.

Daily themes

Each day will have a different theme to focus on:

Monday - Thankfulness
Tuesday - Alpha, unreached family & friends
Wednesday - Families, children, youth & students
Thursday - Local, National, Global
Friday - The Presence

 

Commit to Praying

We’d love to be able to cover the entire week in prayer so we’re asking everyone to commit to praying for at least an hour. We’ll be doing this in the church prayer space, at home, in our cars, office canteens, any nook or cranny available will do!

We have created a virtual prayer room where we can all sign up to commit to praying for slots during the week. Follow the link below to find it:

Fasting

When Jesus talked about fasting he said ‘when’ not ‘if’, so as we deny ourselves for the purpose of drawing near to God, he promises to draw near to us. We want to encourage each of us to fast for a day during the week. 

The week has been split so that each community can fast for one day.
Monday - North
Tuesday - South
Wednesday - Central
Thursday - East
Friday - West

Connecting

We will be providing resources and sharing stories of what God is doing and saying throughout the week. So check out our website and other streams on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to stay connected and let us know what’s going on too!
