Some of you will have been at St Mark's for the 24/7 Prayer Encounter we held in Sept 2019 ... well, we're doing it all again!
21st - 28th November 2021 - please pop these dates in your diary.
The church will be open for prayer from the morning service on Nov 21st until the morning service on Nov 28th. The whole week will be divided into hourly slots, and some hours will contain led sessions - morning reflections, worship, creativity, Scripture reading, etc. However, the vast majority of the time will be free for you to come and pray as the Lord leads, either on your own or with family/friends. Don't worry. There will be lots of resources for you to use, plus five or six prayer stations set up to aid your prayers.
What better way to take a step back after this crazy and challenging Covid season, to take a deep breath, and listen for God's still small voice? We have specifically sandwiched our Prayer Encounter between the end of the 'Ruthless Elimination of Hurry' series and the start of Advent, a time of preparation.
HOW CAN I HELP AND PARTICIPATE?
Here are just some of the ways you can be part of this project:
Help with practicalities - set up / packing away / checking the tea & biscuit supplies.
Volunteer to 'man' the church for a few hours to welcome people (always a minimum of two people). We will have 168 hours to cover.
Consider leading an early morning reflection or evening compline.
Bring your gifts to the fore by leading an hour.
Well, that is just a very brief overview. Any Questions?
We would value hearing your thoughts. We would love to be inundated with volunteers.
