Day of Prayer at EMC: Wed 9th Jan
As we start 2019 with all its busyness, we want to dedicate one day as a Day of Prayer and Fasting, as we seek to know God’s will for us here at EMC. Any time from 9:30am, you are invited to come and make use of the 5 areas within the church with their Bible readings and Prayers.
10:30am Midweek Communion and Bible Study will happen as normal
At 7:30pm there will be a Time of Gathering for Prayer and Praise - all in the church.
A sheet with more information is available at the back of the church to help us each think how we can be involved.
Prayer Ministry after Sunday Services
We are pleased to offer Prayer Ministry after both the 9:00am and 10:30am services every Sunday.
This is an opportunity to bring an issue to God, whether it be great or small and pray with a member of the Prayer Ministry team.
If this is something you would like to be part of, please just come along and join us for all or part of the time, as we seek to see more of God at work here at EMC this year.
"God does nothing except in response to believing prayer" - John Wesley
As a church, we would love to see God working in us and through us as we come together in prayer.
Jesus said, ‘When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure I’ll be there.’ Matthew 18:19-20 (The Message)
Praying Together on alternate Tuesdays at 10am
Usually every 1st and 3rd Tuesday morning at 10am in the church, (alternating with a House group that meets in the church)
Here we can pray for each other, the work of the church or the needs we see in the world around us.
A Prayer Pyramidoperates throughout the church for urgent prayers
We have about 35 people involved with the Prayer Pyramid so that when the Church receives an urgent request for prayer, it is possible to get these people to pray very quickly for the situation.
The white perspex box for your Prayer Requests is on the table near the church entrance
Ecumenical Prayer Service at St Martin's
