What’s on at St Stephen’s?
Play your Part – starting in September
Sunday 1st September will be the first of a 7 week series of services when we shall be thinking about what we are actually doing when we meet together for worship. We will also be considering whether we are all ‘playing our part’ (i.e. the part God wants us to play) in the life of the church. On 1st September there will be an information pack available for each person to collect and take home.
Monthly Prayer Meeting – Wednesday 18th September 2019 7.00pm
In the Gospels, Jesus calls us to pray so we have set up a prayer meeting in church at 7.00pm for 30 minutes on the third Wednesday of each month, with the next one on Wednesday 18th September.
The prayer meetings will be led by one of our own church family and follow the pattern of compline. There will be opportunities to take part either aloud or quietly, whichever you are most comfortable with. The important things is that we pray. So come along and let’s hear what God has to say to us and do with us in Elton.
