Friends of God

Our monthly meetings at St. Sabinus' Church, to explore prayer together, are continuing on the following dates:

Sessions start at 7.00 pm and last about an hour - everybody welcome, no expectations!

 

Thy Kingdom Come

As in previous years, this is an initiative, sponsored by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, to encourage us - and help us encourage others - in the life of prayer. "Thy Kingdom Come" runs from Ascension Day (May 30th) to Pentecost (June 9th). Here are some things that will be happening in our parishes:

Thursday May 30th        9.00 am:     Ascension Day Communion at St. Mary's, Mortehoe

                                        7.00 pm:    "Friends of God" - Exploring Prayer at St. Sabinus', Woolacombe

Sunday June 9th             8.45 am:     All-Age Service at St. Matthew's, Lee

                                          10.00 am:     All-Age Service at St. Sabinus', Woolacombe

                                            6.00 pm:     Songs of Praise at St. Mary's, Mortehoe   - with speaker Rev. Mike Clark, followed by refreshments and discussion

In addition, each church will have a Prayer Tree, on which you can attach your prayer requests.

And - as last year, we will be giving out "Praying for 5" cards, so that you can pray for 5 people.

And - as a new thing, we will be encouraging everyone to do a Prayer Walk - individually, in your own time - to pray for residents and visitors, homes, businesses, shops pubs & hotels, school, Medical Centre, Fire Service ... everything, basically. In all the churches on Sunday May 26th, you'll find guidance on how to do a Prayer Walk, in a leaflet giving all the details of "Thy Kingdom Come".
