Monthly Prayer Meeting – Wednesday 19th September 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 19th September. They 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.
