National Prayer Weekend
Friday 29th September-Sunday 1st October
This is an annual event, spearheaded by CWR, Hope, 24-7 Prayer and other Christian ministries, which encourages churches all around the country to pray for their local communities. To make this more meaningful, we are invited to obtain prayer requests from our respective communities (eg via groups who use our premises), with a promise that they will be included in the NPW.
Some Churches in the Circuit are open for prayer:
Friday 29th Bamfurlong 10am — noon
Friday 29th Culcheth 9am — 9pm
Saturday 30th Bedford 11am — 1pm
Saturday 30th St Johns 10am — noon
Sunday 1st Oct Bag Lane 12noon — 4pm
NB: You may be aware that the Methodist Conference has urged every Circuit to begin its new year with a day of prayer and fasting (in response to the continuing decline of the Methodist Church). This can be included within the NPW eg Saturday 30th September can be a day of fasting. Alternatively, a date separate from the NPW can be identified.
