Using Scripture to aid our prayers
NEW Monthly Prayer Meeting
6:00pm On the first Sunday of each month, currently on Zoom.
I am writing to tell you a little more about the monthly prayer meeting that we are starting this week. As Howard Cunning-Smith said in our Zoom Service, a number of the All Saints’ family have felt for some time that it would be good to meet together in an informal way to pray and seek Gods direction for our Church and Community. You may be wondering why we are suggesting another meeting outside of out normal church services and it’s simply an opportunity to put an hour aside each month to pray together with a particular desire for God and the Holy Spirit to work in our lives and in our Church. In Acts we read how “They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus and his brothers”.
We are going to gather for approximately an hour in the church hall. Everyone is welcome to come and pray along with us.
The structure will be informal with some worship but we will start with the following framework to help us pray and listen to God.
We hope that many of you will be able to join us as we pray. Some people will be happy to pray out loud but there will be no obligation to do so. There will be times of silence as we listen to God and are lead by the Holy Spirit. I hope that people will feel free to read words from Scripture and share things that God has laid on their heart. No one will be put under any pressure to participate in any way that makes them uncomfortable. God will hear all our prayers and petitions whether they are spoken out loud or are in the silence of our own hearts.
There are three ways that we can join together in this new venture
We trust that God will speak to us at this meeting and we will feed this back to Charlie and those in Leadership Team for their consideration and encouragement. If you have any particular prayer topics that you think should be included then please email/telephone the Church Office and someone will get in touch with you.
Due to the current Covid regulations we would really appreciate it if you could let Yvonne and Peter in the Church Office know if you hope to attend in person so that we can ensure safe distancing.

Prayer ministry is an important part of the church life here at All Saints' and we believe that of course every person can pray for another but there are some people, who have a particular and special gift in this area. At the end of each service we offer prayer ministry for each and every person, on a confidential basis either with the vicar or another service leader or a member of the prayer ministry team. Just let one of us know and we would be happy to pray with and for you, whatever the issue.
