Some Things To Pray About – April 2023

There are some key things coming up at Welcome Church that we would love you to know about and to pray about:

The Welcome Kids Weekend Away

This weekend (28th – 30th April) is the Welcome Kids Weekend Away . This year they will be at Walton Firs Activity Centre in Cobham. This is the first time we’re using this new venue and we’re hoping for a fantastic weekend of fun, games, activities, worship and teaching. The theme of the weekend is “Get to know God”.

60 children from school years 3 to 6 will be attending, along with 25 leaders. Here are some things to please pray for:

  • Pray for good weather because lots of outside events are planned
  • Pray that the children stay safe and have a good time
  • Pray that they meet with God and that their faith in him grows
  • Pray for the leaders who are giving up their weekend to serve this event
  • Pray that everyone gets some sleep

Don’t forget: Welcome Kids will still be running on Sunday morning to serve all the children who are not at the weekend away

The Alpha Course

Our next Alpha Course starts on Wednesday 10th May. Each week Alpha creates a brilliant opportunity for people to explore the key questions of faith over a nice meal. Obviously we love it when people invite friends to Alpha, and you are welcome to attend yourself too – just let us know.

Please pray:

  • For people in your life who you would love a chance to invite to Alpha
  • For lots of people to accept invitations
  • For people to meet with God and grow in their faith
  • For the course leaders and table hosts
  • For all the practical details, including the meals

  • Compassion UK are with us this Sunday (30th April). Please pray that lots of children are sponsored and set free from poverty
  • Our ‘Freedom In Christ’ course starts on Thursday 11th May. It’s not too late to sign up for this. Please pray for people to encounter Jesus and find new joy and freedom in their relationship with God
  • Mike Deavin and myself are meeting with the architect of our building later this week to talk about future possibilities that could give us more space. Please pray for wisdom as we meet
