How to... pray

 

To ask the question why pray? is a bit like asking the question why breathe? One is essential to physical life; the other is essential to spiritual life. We pray to stay alive as Christians. “We breathe the oxygen of Gods presence and love”. John Pritchard, Beginning Again, 2000, SPCK).


Why does prayer matter?


•Sharing our lives with God, letting God in constantly.

•Getting to know God, living with God to explore God's Kingdom.

•To express our love to God and receive God's love.

•To express our love and commitment for others.

•To share our needs with God.


The Heart of Prayer


•NOT a secret language for the especially holy!

•NOT about learning a clever technique or magic formula!

Instead, think of prayer as like relationships and conversations:

•Just getting on with it - ordinary life continues, but against the backdrop of God's presence.

•Chatting - sharing with God in brief and simple ways a host of thoughts and needs, letting God in on our feelings.

Bible Study, Join Us

One aspect of church life is the study of the Bible.  At present we have set up several study session on various aspects of the Christian Faith each lasting 4 or 5 weeks.  

In the future we plan more of these especially around the times of main Christian Festivals.

Because the bible is central to our faith it is important to learn and understand what the bible teaches.  We try not to give our opinion on any subject but to pass on the truth of scripture because we believe it is the inspired Word of God.

In time we hope to set up home groups where we can enjoy each others company and learn together about God’s Word in an informal setting.


Details of our plans will be posted on this web site under the “What’s On” section.  We pass on an open invitation to anyone who wishes to join us.

Later we will add links to useful web resources which we believe will be of interest to everyone.
