NATIONAL PRAYER WEEKEND 24th and 25th September.
We as a church have opened our doors and joined the National Prayer weekend, when churches around the country got together to pray for their local communities. On Saturday the church was open for prayer with tea and coffee being served. Many folk from the community took the opportunity to come into the church. Sunday morning worship was led by Margaret Havers continuing the theme. The weekend was concluded when Deacon Glenda Sidding led a meditative Free 2B with four prayer stations around the church representing worship, travel, hobbies and nature, although folk were asked to put their own take on the subjects. During a time of meditation they were encouraged to write a short prayer prompted by what they saw.
Ann Hadley was moved to write the following poem as she moved from table to table:
The beauty of God is all around you,
It is given to you freely
Help us Lord to give thanks back to you Lord
For giving us so willingly access to the Bible
Which gives freedom and light to all.

Lord we seek you everywhere
Right around the globe
May our roots grow in you Lord
So that we have even more to share
of your knowledge given to us.

Thank you Lord for nature
One of the components of your heart.
Give us eyes to see things
When others fall apart.

Let us learn your Post Code Jesus
and learn it off by heart
From the alpha to the omega of your word.
