Prayer across our Benefice 2021

There's so much we can't do at the moment, but we are always free to pray! Prioritising prayer must be a key focus during the year ahead, and I'd love to commend to you these opportunities to pray...

Prayer Walking

Walking in pairs (2m distance) and pausing to use suggested prayers as we lift our communities before the Lord. The January prayer walk will be on Friday 29th January in both Frittenden and Sissinghurst. Please let Tim or Pete know if you'd like to join with this.

Midweek Home-United groups - Saying Yes to Life (Based on Ruth Valerio's book)

In these daytime and evening sessions we will set aside time to pray about the things we're learning. It can feel odd praying via zoom or on the phone,but we always come away encouraged, and the more we do it the easier it gets… Wed 20th January 8pm and Thu 21st 10am via usual Zoom or dial-in. Please see our newsletter for Zoom link details.

Moving Mountains Prayer Breakfast 2021

This is an additional virtual monthly opportunity over breakfast (of your choice!) as we catch up and share prayer requests before bringing them before our God who hears and answers, and specialises in Moving Mountains! The next one is Monday 8th February 9.00am and all are very warmly welcome… thereafter the second Monday of each month - always via usual Zoom or phone-in.

‘Keep Praying’ with Bishop Rose

Join Pete on Thursday 21st January 7:30-8:30pm for a Canterbury Diocese-wide opportunity to pray together around the theme of God as the light in our darkness, reflecting on its meaning for us and using it to prompt and guide our prayers for mission and renewal.
