Jesus Christ calls every person to follow him. As Christians it’s our duty and joy to share that invitation. That’s why the Archbishops of Canterbury and York invited every church in England to join a week of prayer this Pentecost for every Christian to receive new confidence and joy in sharing this life-transforming faith. Many churches across Wokingham Borough seized this opportunity to hold prayer events in their churches and communities; here are just a few examples.
St Paul’s Wokingham had prayer stations set up in the church for people to come and use in their personal prayer through the week.
All Saints Wokingham encouraged church members to use the prayer booklet “Conversations at the Crossroads” Nine Days of Prayer. They then ended the week with a service combining the celebration of Pentecost with the start of Christian Aid Week.
St Nicolas Earley encouraged their community to come and place a prayer on their prayer board, light a candle or pray the prayers on the Sunday Sheet. They started the week by facilitating a prayer zone in Loddon Primary School on the Monday and completed it with a celebration of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
The congregation at St James Woodley were thinking about their preschool and praying for the youngest children in their community.
If your church joined in with Thy Kingdom Come then get in touch, let’s celebrate the active prayer presence throughout our communities.
