Monthly Prayer Meeting

Monthly Prayer Meeting 

6:00pm on the first Sunday of each month,

now back in Church.

I am writing to tell you a little more about the monthly prayer meeting. 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 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.

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.

October 2021

These are the prayer topics which we will be praying for at our prayer meeting, 3rd October at 6:30pm.

All Saints’ Church and its people
As our church and community as we navigate our way out of Covid restrictions:
We pray:
• That God will be ever present in this transition. That all of us will experience renewal and refreshment in our Christian journey and experience a fresh vision of God’s power and grace.
• That we, with the power of the Holy Spirit, will move forward with unity, show patience, listen to one another and have love for each other. 1 Peter 3:8.
• For the future plans to meet the needs and challenges of church and community. What might we change, what might stay the same?
• For Godly inspired decisions across all areas of ministry as we adapt and gather again and that we will show love to each other as we go through this period of adjustment.
• For Kate and the Older Peoples’ Ministry, that it continues to go from strength to strength. Pray that Faith & Fellowship may help people connect and reconnect after the difficult times of isolation and share the love of the Lord together.
• For neighbours, church and community. That they will meet with God in a new way.
• We pray for our family service that it would be a place of
refreshing, joy and a safe space for new people to be welcomed into.
• We give thanks for Dale, Hannah and the Family that the Lord has provided accommodation as well as a school placement for Elijah at Oceans Academy. We pray that a school place can be found quickly for Micah.
• We pray for families engaged in our church, those families returning to All Saints’ and for Families not yet reached. 

A Call to pray from the Acting Bishop of Salisbury, Karen Gorman “Gracious God, We ask that you send us a new Bishop who loves you, is faithful and prayerful, who will teach your Word, who has a real love for people, who will lead your church effectively. Guide all who help find this person, lead them not to the one we think we want, but to the one you know we need. In this whole process, may your will alone be done. Amen”

We pray for at least 340 million Christians worldwide who experience systematic discrimination, unfair treatment and persecution. For those who are remaining to further the Gospel in their neighbourhoods. And for those who will
find Christ in the lands they have fled to. We pray for SAT-7, Open Doors ,TWR, Barnabas Fund and other agencies supporting the persecuted church and propagating the Gospel.


At 6pm on the 1st Sunday of the month.
