Upcoming Church Events

Holy Week – The Way Online Prayer Group

We proved in our first online prayer meet that praying together online while in isolation is possible!

When we come together in prayer and in worship the Holy Spirit annoints us. We can pray in the power of the Holy Spirit online together for our neighbours, friends, family and anyone who is in need. There are so many in need and, in faith, our prayers for them are always heard. Prayer is a vital weapon in this battle that we find ourselves in.

We next meet online on Monday in Holy Week, 6th April at 8pm GMT/BST.


All are welcome. All you need is a computer, mobile device, tablet or even a land land phone. Full details and the access numbers are here:

Distance is no object, come and join in and let’s pray together.
