Join us for an eight-week journey that will help us to grow and deepen our prayer life. This course is a simple guide to prayer that fills in the blanks we may have as we learn to pray with confidence and clarity. The course will kick off on the 21st of February. Small groups will meet on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 8pm and Friday mornings from 11.30 am. Check the church calendar for dates.
How to Pray
The video-based course is led by Pete Greig, who is the founder of 24-7 Prayer and pastor at Emmaus Road in Surrey. The eight session will evoke a passion for prayer in everyone—the committed follower of Jesus, as well as the sceptic and the scared. The videos are engaging and easy to understand. Pete demystifies prayer, helping us to find prayer achievable and enjoyable, and ultimately life-giving and life-changing.
The Prayer Course offers a simple guide for normal people; for anyone who wants to learn more about prayer, including those who are just starting out.
