This time of vacancy is a demanding time for many people in the church, but it is also an opportunity, to take hold of God’s purpose for our church going forward. But we cannot take the opportunity unless God helps us. “Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain”. God’s help is not necessarily automatic, we need to ask Him. And God wants us to ask Him for what we need.

In such a circumstance, the most important thing we can do is to pray. Although many people are praying for the vacancy, when lots of us take time to pray together, in the same place, at the same time, it can have a powerful effect. With this in mind, the prayer team have organised a meeting at the start of the week in which the next round of applications will close.  Each hour will start with organised prayer and worship, followed by free time for prayer. Come for however long you have time.

The prayer team would love to invite you to join with us in prayer on Monday 1st October, 6 – 9 pm in the Reid Room.
