New 24-7 Prayer Week coming soon.
We will update you very soon with the details of the new 24-7 Prayer Week!
Sunday 20-27 February 2022
We have set aside the week of 20-27 February 2022 as a week of prayer at St Bs.
How does it work?
We are using 24/7 prayer's model for this week of prayer, there is an online schedule that you can log into and sign up for a slot of prayer. This can be on your own, or with a group such as your 2-4 group.
There will also be OPEN SESSIONS throughout the week led by members of our congregation where anyone can come along to pray - no booking required. Just join using the Zoom link in the e-Bulletin.
We would love as many people as possible to sign up for an hours slot during this week and feel free to sign up for multiple slots over the week if you can.
Where will we be praying?
You can pray on your own, online on Zoom, or in our Prayer Room at St Bs church building!
Zoom Prayer Room: We have a zoom account dedicated to prayer throughout the week. Join us there for the times of led prayer, or book a slot and invite friends to join you in the Zoom prayer room at that time.
Pray where you are: Book a prayer slot and pray wherever you find yourself at that time - God isn't limited to location.
Prayer Room: We have a prayer room at St Bs on the 1st floor. A space set apart for prayer and intercession to God. This room is able to be accessed for the 24/7 prayer week. It's filled with prayer stations and resources to help you pray.
Please use hand sanitisers, wipe frequently touched surfaces, and limit numbers to 12 at one time. When meeting with those outside your household, please give each other space, face masks are optional. We encourage you to do a Lateral Flow Test before you come. Please do not come to the church building if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been told to self-isolate. Air circulation with UV filters will be operating overnight, but not heating. Toilets are available on the first floor only.
Once you have signed up you will receive an email 24 hours before your slot with detailed instructions on how to access the building/Zoom account. Please lookout for this email as you will need it to get to the prayer room online or in the building!
What are we praying for?
Our theme for the week will be announced soon.
Each and every one of us will have particular issues and dreams that we want to bring before God our heavenly father. So this week is an opportunity for us all to engage with God for our own personal lives.
These are led prayer sessions which you are encouraged to come along to where you can pray with others for specific themes and topics.
More details coming soon
Other ways to join in
We encourage everyone to engage in and sign up for an hour or prayer, however, there are other ways you can participate.
Daily prayer: Try to set aside a period of time each day to take yourself off to a quiet place and pray. This could be 10 minutes or an hour depending on what you are used to. Pray for 5 people you know to come to know Jesus, for the church to be equipped by the Holy Spirit for greater works of evangelism, and pray the Lord's prayer "Thy Kingdom Come, thy will be done in earth as in heaven."
Try Fasting: The purpose of fasting is to deny ourselves something as a way of telling God that our desire for Him and for His purposes in our lives is greater than even our normal human appetites. This helps focus our attention and bring a greater weight of importance and urgency to our prayers.
Central Prayer Meeting: Wednesday 23 February 7.45 pm
Come along to our termly prayer meeting where the whole church is encouraged to come and petition the Lord together as a community.
Keen to keep on praying?
As well as our Sunday prayer ministries, we have a number of prayer networks and small groups which regularly meet to pray.
