"Prayer is an offering up of our desires unto God, for things agreeable to his will, in the name of Christ, with confession of our sins, and thankful
acknowledgment of his mercies." Westminster Shorter Catechism
Our congregation continues to follow the practice established since before the birth of our denomination, of holding a weekly gathering - specifically for prayer and bible study. While this would normally be a Wednesday evening meeting, during this challenging time of lockdown our congregation meet in groups, utilising the blessing of modern technology to come together.
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God". Philippians 4:6
