You are invited to join in with a
District Day of Prayer and Fasting
13:00 on Saturday 10th September
13:00 on Sunday 11th September
As last year, circuits, churches and individuals are invited to join in a day on which we will focus particularly on prayer together. Everyone will join in different ways, but you are invited to plan something in your own context. It might be:
· Prayer stations in your church
· A prayer walk around your neighbourhood
· A watchnight or vigil service
· A Sunday service focusing on prayer
· A prayer meeting
· Inviting friends to pray in your own home
· Commit to pray individually 5 times during the day
· A 24 hour prayer event
Our theme will be
Praying for All-Sorts
We will turn our prayers outwards to pray for the many and diverse people who live around us, in our neighbourhoods, and in the global village. The focus of prayer could include:
· Racial Justice Sunday
· Refugee Action
· World Church connections
· Inter-faith relationships
· People who are excluded within our own neighbourhoods
· For our churches to be open and inclusive
Further information and resources will be available in due course, but you don’t have to wait for that. Talk together, decide what you’re going to do, and let everyone know by posting your plans on the Facebook page:
Most people from Bridge are scattered around the usual Sunday services that most churches hold. At Bridge however, we gather together at 6pm on the third Sunday evening of every month at Edgeley Community Church and finish by 8.30pm and sometimes we gather together at other times too!
Our time together starts with a shared meal which enables us to share not only food (and washing up) but our dreams, our fears and our struggles. After food we look together at what it means to be a person of faith in our modern world.
You may find yourself connecting through art, connecting through video, connecting through prayer, connecting through conversation, connecting through meditation, connecting through games it doesn’t matter how, we just want you to find a connection.
We meet next on Sunday 19th June please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to come along just so we can make sure there is something for you to eat!
Please download the leaflet for more information.
