Prayer and Bible Study Meeting

Christians view personal prayer as crucial to their spiritual life and the prayer meeting is a vital part of the life of the church. Anyone is welcome to join us.  

Our Tuesday evening meeting starts at 8pm and usually lasts until about 9.15pm. We begin with a time of Bible study, where we look in some detail at particular passages to understand their teaching and relevance for us. There is always time for questions and discussion about the passage being studied, or other related matters. Thus, we hear from God before we speak to God in our prayer.

The prayer time is our opportunity to come together into the presence of God to praise Him and to thank Him for who He is and for all that He does. It gives us opportunity as well to bring our requests to Him about matters in the life of the church, or to pray for the needs of individuals and families, or for wider concerns beyond our immediate circumstances.

The Bible study is normally led by our pastor, or one of our other preachers. However, everyone is welcome to participate in the discussion, or to ask a question in connection with the Bible study, or to pray. We realise not everyone may feel able to participate like this, at least to begin with, and it is fine simply to listen.
