Prayer is at the centre of all that we are, and all that we do as a church family. We take prayer seriously. We believe that prayer is both a natural instinct, and also the reason for which we were created. We were created for relationship with God, and one of the ways we can speak and listen to God is in prayer. As well as seeking to encourage and equip our church family to make prayer a pattern in their own life, we also create spaces for people to come together and pray for our church, our community, and our world. Whether prayer is something new to you, or something you know the power of, we would love to see you at one of our prayer gatherings.
Prayer Focus Every Monday - 10am -11am - at The Beacon Prayer focus is our weekly prayer meeting. It lasts for an hour and is an amazing opportunity to pray together for our church, community and world.
Reflections Twice Monthly - 10am -11am A twice monthly session for those who like to listen more than talk. People can come and listen to a bible reading and spend time reflecting on what God is saying through it. It's a powerful experience, so check the calendar for the dates and times and come along.
Sunday Prayer Meeting 1st Sunday of the Month - 6:30pm-7:30pm - at The Beacon On the first Sunday of the month we gather in the evening to spend time in prayer together. This time is often themed for specific topics of prayer, and usually includes time to seek God's face and will for our church. However, we also pray for our community, our country, and our world.
Multi Sensory Prayer Room Room Three - at The Beacon Room three is our dedicated prayer space for all ages. It is a space where anyone from our church family or our community can come and be still. You may wish to sit in silence and pray, or you may wish to make use of a number of prayer stations set up to help you pray creatively. These prayer stations change regularly throughout the year depending on any particular theme or topic we are encouraging prayer for.
Pre-Service Prayer Every Sunday - 9:45am-10:15am - Room Three The most important preparation we can do for our church gatherings is spending time in prayer. Anyone can join us for this open time of prayer. You don't need to stay for the full half hour, most people drop in and out. Come and prepare your heart for worship, and pray for a move of God's Spirit, and fresh encounter, amongst us all.
Prayer Ministry Every Sunday - Following the service When we meet together for worship we are expectant that God will speak to people. Sometimes we also come to church carrying issues, anxieties, fears, or doubts. Sometimes we need help processing that, and sometimes God call us to respond initially by being prayed for. Prayer is the heartbeat of a healthy church, and we want to make prayer as open and accessible as possible. As well as making it a normal part of our church culture. After each service our dedicated and sensitive prayer team are available to pray with you. They can be located by looking out for their orange lanyards. You can share as much or as little as you want with them, and they will be happy to pray with you.
