24 hour prayer for 'Building to Serve'

24hr Prayer - 8th-9th October - with rescheduled 1st Priority Prayer in the Old Bank

Drawing together in prayer, after our month of looking to Jesus and listening throughout September, we will be holding a 24hr Prayer event from 9pm on Tuesday 8th October and as a climax, at the end of the 24hrs, we will gather together in the Old Bank at 7.30pm on Wednesday 9th October for this month’s 1st Priority Prayer (delayed by a week from it’s usual time on the first Wednesday).

Sign up sheets will be available over the next three weeks in the church, or you can sign up right here! Let’s raise this whole project before God with a real sense of urgency. We need him to build our house, or we will be labouring in vain!
