We’d hoped by now to be at stage 4 of the National Unlocking Plan, and to be free to meet more normally on Sundays as a church, with kids work and freedom to sing again. Sadly this has been delayed for four weeks and (whether we agree with it or not) it’s frustrating for us all 😮
During Lockdown we regularly used the first Sunday evening of each month to hold an online communion meeting, and these have been great. This Sunday – 4th July – we’d planned instead to have an in person “Encounter” worship evening, where we’d be free to sing, worship and pray for one another again. Sadly the delay to unlocking means this can’t go ahead as planned because restrictions are still in place.
We could have put an online communion meeting back in the diary, but rather than hold another online meeting I will instead be opening up the Welcome Church building this Sunday evening for prayer, which is something we are absolutely allowed to do.
I’m going to be there from 7pm to 8.30pm to pray and I want to invite you to join me. I don’t really have a formal plan for the evening, just a deep desire to get before God to pray for our church, our town, our nation and for revival, starting by asking God to do his work of revival in me/us. I also want us to listen to what God might want to say to us.
2 Chronicles 7v14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
I hope some of you will join me to pray.
