PRAYERS FOR THE CHURCH AND OUR WORLD
We praise you, God, for your Church across the globe. In particular, we lift to You our church partners who are faithfully serving You. So many have continued to share your love in practical ways throughout the world. We pray for those missionaries who endeavour to set people free from their chains for your glory. Lord we pray for all those who are affected by natural disasters and in particular those who are victims of wars ,that you will continue to give them comfort and above all hope, We pray they will come to know you as their saviour.
In the name of Jesus
OUR GOD HEARS AND ACTS
There are many Psalms and text in the bible which tells us, and all the nations about God, His character and His actions. Psalm 18 is one example. "The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge"(18:2) God hears and if we have faith He answers when we call to him.
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" (Mark 11:24)
Millions of people around the world have been praying for peace in Israel and Gaza. For those who have prayed in the name of Jesus for a cease fire, hostages have been released and much needed provisions allowed into Gaza .The Lord has heard those prayers.
PRAYER OF THANKS
Father, we give You thanks that You hear and answer prayer. Thank you that some of those taken from their homes on October 7th are now safely back with what remains of their families. We pray for their recovery and for the healing of the terrible scars they now have, both physical and emotional. We continue to seek Your mercy for those who remain in captivity, that they too may come home. Father we know there will be no lasting peace until the coming of the Prince of Peace. We pray for wisdom on the part of those who have decisions to make that will affect the lives of so many. Teach us to pray according to Your will that our prayers may be answered. We pray for peace, the shalom, of Jerusalem in the name of Him who is the Holy One of Israel, Jesus our Saviour and their Messiah.

In our studies, we all share equally in reading the chosen passage of Scripture and discussing what it means in its historic setting as well as its relevance to us as 21st Century believers in Jesus.
We are continually amazed at the richness of God's Word and how it relates to our situation.
You can see what we are currently studying and learn more on our Bible Groups page here.
Jesus told his disciples to remember Him and his sacrifice every time they shared bread and wine together.
We do as He told them on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, as an integral part of our Morning Service.
All who love the Lord Jesus and know Him as Saviour are welcome to join us in this simple meal.
