The Prayer Course

On one occasion after Jesus had been praying, his disciples came to him and said "Lord, teach us to pray" (Luke 11:11). There was something about the way Jesus prayed, that the disciples wanted to learn, and in response to their request Jesus taught them the Lord's Prayer. Prayer is at the heart of our relationship with God, yet if we were being truly honest, how many of us would say we are truly satisfied with our prayer life?

The Big Quiz

We are inviting you to take on a quiz like no other for charity
Get together with your family and friends, and take part in Tearfund's Big Quiz Night on Saturday 14th November at 7.30pm to raise money for the charity’s work in some of the world’s poorest countries.
The quiz (which will last no more than one hour), will be hosted on Zoom, and will include rounds on music, food & drink, sport, geography, current events, film, history and the natural world.
We will be inviting people to make a donation to support the work of Tearfund. Money raised will go to help change the lives of people living in poverty - like Alaya, her husband Bazwell and their three young children in Malawi. They rely on growing maize to survive, but the weather patterns that have guided their farming for generations have changed. And it’s putting everyone at risk of sickness and starvation. Frequent flooding brings diseases like cholera and damages their home, washing away what little food they have. With Tearfund’s partner, AG Care, Alaya and Bazwell are learning new ways of working the land under these tough conditions.
Simon Bickersteth is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
