Praying for our church

May 6, 2021

Join us tonight from 7.30pm (just ask for the Zoom code) as we look at Ephesians 1:15-23 and think about how we pray for each other as a church.

Revd Tim shared three questions from this passage last Sunday to help us in our conversations – do think and pray about them even if you’re not able to make the meeting:

  1. Where do we need wisdom as the church of Jesus Christ right now?
  2. What does it mean for us to be a community of hope in Stoke and Devonport?
  3. How do you think the Lord wants to work in power among us?
