"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people." Ephesians 6:18 (NIV)
Here at St Stephens with St Paul's we offer a variety of ways to offer our prayers up to the Lord
We meet every Wednesday morning to pray for situations around the world, our community, the sick and ourselves.
We focus our prayers on healing on the 1st Wednesday of the month.
Meetings usually last for 45 minutes. Refreshemnts are served afterwards. Everyone is welcome.
For more personal prayer we have a team of trained Prayer Ministers that are available to pray with you after the service on a Sunday morning.
Whatever your situtuation is that you need prayer for; nothing no matter how big or small there is nothing that God cannot do.
