Jesus taught his followers to pray. The earliest church devoted itself to prayer. The apostle Paul even challenged the young church to ‘pray without ceasing’!
Prayer can be anytime and anywhere;it may be silent, sung or spoken; with others or alone. It may find many other expressions.
At Wellspring we shall be setting aside some time and space to pray together. Our chosen banner ‘Prayer Zone’ suggests that the times and places will vary, and they may even be beyond the confines of our building. Our Prayer Zone will be when and where we are together in prayer.
To begin with we dedicate 9.30 a.m. every Tuesday to pray together for our church family, our local community and beyond.
All are welcome to meet upstairs ‘in the corner’, and if you are not able to join us then perhaps see if you couldset aside this time for prayer at home. Following our 30 mins or so, Kevin will be available for personal conversation and prayer for anyone who would like this.On the second Tuesday of the month we will share in Communion as usual.
Tuesday 4th September - Prayer
Saturday 8th September (9.00 a.m.) - Prayer Breakfast
Tuesday 11th September - Communion & Prayer
Tuesday 18th September - Prayer Walk
Tuesday 25th September - Prayer
Tuesday meetings are at 9.30 a.m. upstairs ‘in the corner’ and the Prayer Walk will start here as well.
We believe our community will be blessed by the church praying for its life and needs at significant positions around the town, so we shall be organising regular ‘Prayer Walks’. We anticipate being out for about 25 mins and finishing at one of the town’s coffee shops.
Prayer Vigils and special times of reflection
Recognising that it is good to mark certain moments in the Christian calendar such as Advent and Holy Week,time and space will be set aside for contemplation and reflection.
We will continue to meet monthly once a month on a Saturday morning to share breakfast and prayer with friends from Wellspring and other fellowships.
And there will be more… maybe a Prayer Diary, a Labyrinth or whatever creative idea we may come up with!
I do hope you will feel you can be part of our growing together in prayer and we will know God at work amongst us.
