    Week of Prayer

    • Monday 2nd September – Friday 6th September 2019, 7.45pm-9.15pm (Woburn Hall)
      (as per last year we take this opportunity at the beginning of a ‘new season’ or academic year to bring stuff in prayer to God – beyond our normal prayer meetings, etc. In particular we can focus on those we know, our friends and family, who have yet to commit their lives to Christ. Also bringing before God those in special need through ill health or otherwise and anything else.
    • The theme, the year, being picked up during the week to help focus our prayers is the Armour of God, found in Ephesians 6:10-17

      This year, especially on the Monday night, we will echo the Evening of Prayer being held in St. Anne’s Cathedral focusing on the new abortion & marriage legislation being imposed on Northern Ireland

      We hope this opportunity to come together corporately will encourage us as individuals and groups to continue and develop our prayer lives throughout the year.)

    Annual Alpha Course will take a break in 2019 & instead we will run the “Just 10” Course by J. John looking at the Ten Commandments (NB as per the Alpha Course course this will be held in St. Patrick’s Church, Millisle)
