This small group meets the first Tuesday in the month from April to approximately November (depending on the severity of winter).
Initially it was set up to invite those who are unable to attend church through perhaps poor health, poor mobility or no transport, yet still want to be a part of our church family.
It has developed into a lovely small informal group that welcomes all who wish to come and join in fellowship with each other. On average 8-10 people attend and we are blessed with a team of willing helpers.
It is a real joy and privilege to share the love of the Lord with these people through prayer, hymns, a short message and of course tea and biscuits.
God has no "age barrier" all are welcome.
Anyone who wishes to attend will be made most welcome and need not worry about transport or any other problem they may think will stop them from coming.
God is a welcoming God and we give Him Thanks for such meetings.
This group is open to both men and women. If you know someone who might like to join the group or for more information please contact either Margaret Boston (211548).
'My house will be called a house of prayer for all people" - Isa. 56 v 7
We have been meeting to pray together for approximately 10 years.
We bring to the Lord concerns of Marshside Road Methodist and Crossens Methodist Churches. There are representatives from both churches at our meetings.
We give thanks to God for who He is and what He has done.
God is so faithful to His word, 'When two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there'. He hears us and there are always answers. Not always as we thought, usually better! Every healing is miraculous, every difficult situation has a solution and we have been reminded again and again how powerful and loving is our Lord.
We undergird everything that is happening in our churches with prayer. We pray for our Ministers and we remember all the meetings that take place, especially the Sunday services and those who are leading them. We pray each week for a different country overseas where Christians are being persecuted for their faith. We are thankful that we are able to meet together in freedom to pray.
We now have homes taking it in turns to hold our meetings, which is encouraging. We always have room for more to join us. People are ringing to ask us to pray for families, neighbours and friends. Whatever is shared in the meeting stays in the meeting. Confidentiality is a must for a prayer meeting.
We do feel that the church and everything that happens there should be secured by prayer and it is a privilege to stand 'in the gap' for others.
