What arrangements do you need to do to get a holiday and time away from all the busy-ness of life? Do you have a boss you need to clear time off with? A family you have to coordinate dates with? A travel company who have messed you around? Then there's all the hassle of packing, we have a dog this year for the first time and all of a sudden i need a dog guard to divide the boot and a roof box to carry the stuff that used to go in the boot!!
What we really need is access to the highest power. The one who is the boss's boss, the top dog, the organizer of everyone's diaries, the provider of all the need, the one who knows what sort of holiday we need in the first place. "If only we could", i hear you say, but we can. We have always been able to. That is one of the truly amazing truths that the Bible reveals. God wants to talk to us; He has since the very beginning been in conversation with the human beings He made. We read that He walked and talked with Adam and Eve in the Garden and met with many who descended from them after that. Then in the day of Jesus Christ, God the Son Himself came and walked and talked with many; some privately and sometimes in groups. God speaks to us in His Word and tells us He is listening to us when we pray.
So do you pray? Given God is listening it is rather silly not to!
Perhaps you don't know what prayer is like or should be like. Well our summer preaching series and Prayer Services are just the thing. As the summer holidays begin (July 28th) and until schools go back in September (1st) we will be studying some of the great prayers of the Bible together in our morning service (10:30) and our evening services (5:00pm) will include a briefer study followed by prayer. It doesn't matter if you haven't been to church for a while, or ever before, we will do everything we can to make you welcome and in the evenings there will be a wide variety of prayer to try or just to listen too. On August 25th we will gather at church at 5 pm but then leave to walk and enjoy our prayer and worship along with food in God's good creation, we'd love for you to join us, for a whole evening together.
Services last between 60 & 90 minutes and refreshments follow.
