Wave of prayer for Evangelism 8th to 15th May
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have asked for a great wave of prayer in the lead up to Pentecost. We have been asked to pray that the life transforming love of Jesus Christ will overflow from our churches into our communities so that more people will be drawn to faith in him.
Prayer booklets are available in church to guide you for nine days of prayer (a Novena). These are free but you can give an offering towards their cost for yourself and someone else if you wish. They cost £1 each, part of which goes to the Archbishops’ Refugee fund.
On Saturday 14th May after Mass at 9.30, there will be silent prayer in our church before the blessed sacrament from 10-11 a.m. Come and go as you please. You do not have to stay for the whole hour.
Additionally if you want somewhere different to pray, St Peter and St Paul Chaldon will be open daily from 10-4 as usual or you could go and walk the prayer labyrinth in the grounds of St Lawrence Church.
And finally a lot more information and ideas for prayer can be found on the website http://www.thykingdom.co.uk, and do catch up with Archbishop Justin’s message about the wave of prayer on his FaceBook page or YouTube.
