Prayer party update

June 13, 2018

Prayer party June 18

We’re starting to get excited about our prayer party tomorrow and very much hope you can make it.

We’re going to start with food at 6pm. There will be fresh bread supplied, please bring along meat, cheese, salad etc. and something to drink.

Then at 7pm we are going to consider the questions Rev  Tim posed at the end of the Sunday sermon:

If Paul was writing a letter to St Michael’s and St Barnabas…

…what would he thank God for?

…what would he pray to God about us?

… where would he encourage us?

…where would he challenge us?

Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.
(Habakkuk 3:2)

Small groups – Lent

February 19, 2018

During Lent this year, our Thursday evening small group, which meets at the Vicarage, is following a Lent course from 40acts.

40acts is the generosity challenge for Lent, created by UK Christian charity, Stewardship. For seven years, 40acts has asked a question: what if Lent could be about more than just giving stuff up? What if it could be a time of radical generosity as well as spiritual discipline?

Over the years, 40acts has become a movement of over 100,000 people on a mission to impact their communities with generosity – during Lent and beyond.

You can find the study guide here – join us for the discussion at the Vicarage on Thursdays at 7:30pm 🙂

The persecuted church

February 7, 2018

Tomorrow – February 8th – at the vicarage our Thursday evening group is having a special session looking about the persecuted church, how we can pray from them and what we can learn from their faith. Come along at 7.30pm to find out more.

We are focusing in particular on the work of Open Doors UK and hearing from a pastor in Syria describing life in that country.
