Making Him Known to Others

Prayer Trail

Following on from the success of the Prayer Room in June, it has been agreed that there will be a trial of some of the prayer ideas from the Prayer Room in the church. These are all quite visual and physical ways of engaging in prayer, and will be placed in discreet corners of the church. Please do take the time to explore these opportunities yourself.

To help with this project, we wonder if anyone has a small world globe that they would be willing to lend us. We are also looking for a small collection of buttons! If you can help, please contact Alison Miller 01506 844992.
