OUR WEEKS OF PRAYER ARE DESIGNED TO HELP US ENGAGE IN PRAYER NO MATTER WHAT OUR EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN BEFORE.
For this Week of Prayer, our focus is the theme ‘Refresh’. During the week we are going to look at a number of different ways we can engage with God in prayer. The idea is to be bold and try a way of praying you haven’t before.
As we explore this together we will be hosting a different themed evening during the week to help each of us to have a go. Each evening there will be several different prayer stations which come under the same theme. The details are below.
Monday – Creative/The arts – Workshops in painting, photography or calligraphy and songwriting
Tuesday – Contemplative – ‘Be still and know that I am God’ (Ps 46:10). A time to do just that!
Wednesday – Prayer walking – We have two options
City Centre Site - Meet here to join us for prayer walking with Tom
John Lewis steps (back of Grand Central, near The Electric Cinema) - Meet here to head out and chat/pray with people we meet.
Thursday – Words – The power of words and how we use them to bring our prayers to God. Workshops in using poetry, liturgy or newspapers to direct our prayer.
Friday - Shabbat - Starting 8pm join us to see how we can use the tradition of shabbat as a way of connecting with God. This is also the first hour of our 24/1 prayer space!"
All of the these will be held from 7:30 - 8:30pm in G1 at City Centre Site. So come along to any of the events and try some out!
On Friday 21st Sept, until Saturday 22nd, we'll be running a prayer space for 24 hours straight. You'd be welcome to come for as long or as short-a-time as you want to. We'd love to fill the whole 24 hours, as a church, with prayer.
Friday will see the start of our 24/1 prayer room. We'd love to be able to be praying as a church for the whole 24 hours. So, book on to an hour using the link below, come along to City Centre Site, and use the prayer stations to engage with God in prayer. You can sign up here: https://www.24-7prayer.com/signup/84087d
If the slot you wanted is full and there aren’t any free ones, do feel free to join someone else, there’s plenty of room for many people to use the space at the same time!
To finish our 24/1 prayer room, we'll be meeting together for The Presence. This will be another 2 hours of worship and prayer, giving glory to God and drawing close to Him. We'd love to see you there!
Look out for a video each day during the week, explaining more behind each day's theme.
