The Prayer Course is great course for those who already pray – and for those who wish they knew how!

Even if it was in a moment of desperation, I am sure that at some point in our lives most of us have prayed, whether we believe in God or not!

Let me assure you that this is the most natural thing that you can do as a human being, because God created you to communicate with Him.

I want to invite you to join us in an eight-week course, starting on Sunday 18 August at 10.30am, that follows Jesus’ reply to a request that his friends made of him 2,000 years ago – ‘Lord, teach us to pray’.

I know that August can be a busy time for people so don’t worry if you are unable to attend every session. You can catch up with the talks online via or contact us and one of the team will gladly sit down with you and go through the session together.
