Growing in Church and Community  TONIGHT at our Informal Evening Service we will  be focussing  on prayer for our church and community.  We want to see our church grow numerically – that more people will come to know Jesus, and that our church will grow spiritually – that each of us will deepen in our relationship with God. We also want to pray for our community – asking God to bless homes and families, neighbours and friends, schools, care homes, shops, farms and businesses.

The service will begin with songs and hymns of worship and a Bible reading, followed by time to listen to God and to bring our church and community to him in a time of prayer. We hope to have specific prayer focusses each month, and open prayer, as we respond to the Holy Spirit’s leading.

Please join us in this as we take time to wait on God and seek his blessing together. Revd. Emma

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain.
Unless the Lord guards the city, the guard stays awake in vain.
