Week of Prayer


OUR WEEKS OF PRAYER ARE DESIGNED TO HELP US ENGAGE IN PRAYER NO MATTER WHAT OUR EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN BEFORE.

Easter is a really special time of year - a time when we celebrate the life, death and resurrection of our Saviour, Jesus. In the week leading up to Easter Sunday, we're running a Week of Prayer. It'll be a chance to engage with God in prayer - by yourself, as families and as a community.


Prayer Space

To help us cover as much of the week in prayer as possible we will have a 24-7 prayer space open for the duration. This gives you the chance to sign up to pray during slots of an hour (with the resources below to help you), you can pray on your own, with your family, friends or even your small group!

You can sign up to a slot at bvc.so/prayerspace 


Prayer Resources

All through the week we will be emailing resources to help us pray around the day's topic, we'll also release them here each day for easy access:
