Hi ,
our prayer weekend is coming up quickly. It is this Saturday 7th November between 8am and 8pm. There are still time slots available if you want one. There is one morning slot left, and 7 afternoon slots, and the early evening. So get in quick to get your preference.

This is a great opportunity to explore creative prayer with your family or grandchildren. Come and enjoy. We pray that God will bless you during this time.

Angela & Dion

Prayer Day - Sat 8th November 8am - 8pm

We will have 12 hours of continuous prayer from 8am to 8pm. Book your time slot in the foyer or below. We can have multiple people in a time slot, the idea is to have continuous prayer for these 12 hours. The day will open with morning prayer at 8am, end with night prayer at 8pm. There will be a prayer area setup in the downstairs lounge with quiet music, lots of candles, low lighting.

You will have an opportunity to explore prayers stations and pray:
  • Water - living water, what do you long for?
  • Wailing wall – special prayers written on paper and stuck into cracks in the wall
  • Church – images of church, worship, people, prayer for St Mary’s.
  • Images to reflect on – what image are you drawn to? Why? What does it remind you of or speak to you about?
This is an opportunity for you to take 1 hour out, and to spend it in the presence of the Holy Spirit, and to actively nurture your life.

May God bless you through this.
