We are following the same format this year, as it was successful last year. If you delivered envelopes and flyers last year we are hoping you will be able to again this year. If you cannot deliver could you please let Angela Herring know on 023 9226 3215 or 07890 995 327.
Growing in Church and Community
On the third Sunday of each month at 6.00pm, beginning on March 18th, our Informal Evening Service will focus on prayer for our church and community.
We want to see our church grow:
- numerically – that more people will come to know Jesus
- 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.
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.
