Date: 12th – 1st February

It is essential to start our year with prayer. As we were reminded at our New Year’s Eve service ‘Except the LORD build the house we labour in vain’ We have chosen to start 2020 with 21 days of prayer as we acknowledge that we can achieve nothing of eternal significance without God at the centre of, around and within everything we do.

Prayer Schedule

Monday to Friday at 6am

Saturday at 9am

Sundays – As part of church service
