Week of Prayer and Fasting

We are having a week of prayer and fasting from Monday March 27th until Sunday April 2nd. We suggest giving up breakfast and lunch each day and using the time to come before God in prayer. A list of suggested areas for prayer each day will be available nearer the time. Not everyone will be called or be able to fast in this way but we would encourage everyone to set aside time each day that week to come before God in prayer. For those who have fasted, there will be an opportunity to share a simple meal at 3.00pm on Sunday April 2nd. (Please sign-up on the sheet at the back of the church for catering purposes.) This will be followed by our monthly prayer meeting at 5.00pm (not the usual 6.00pm) which is open to everyone as usual.


We are looking for someone to run the Traidcraft ministry at Priory Street. Please speak to Julie King if you feel this is something in which you would like to be involved.

Midweek Service

The next midweek service will be held on Wednesday 15th March at 2pm followed by tea/coffee and home-made cakes. Please speak to Eric Seager if you wish to know more about these services.
