- What's On
1st December 2015
Back in September 2015 City Hope embarked on ‘40 days of prayer’ which included an intense week of prayer right at the beginning. This was a great way of stirring up prayer, both corporate and individual, in the church. In January we have another week of prayer (not ‘40 days’ though) to encourage us all to gather together and seek God. There is plenty of opportunity for every one of us to get along to something. Please stir your heart, spirit and body and get along to a meeting or two! A pdf timetable of the week is available here.
We are encouraging people to plan a day or more of fasting alongside praying during the week. If you have never fasted before why not try skipping one meal. Get together with others to fast - this encourages you to finish what you start!
Prayer Meeting Venues
Unless otherwise stated overleaf all the prayer meetings will be at our building on Drummond Road (SE16 2JY).
3rd, 10th & 17th January: Sunday sermons
On the Sundays running up to and just after the week of prayer we will have a sermon series based on Paul’s prayer found in 1 Thessalonians 3 v9-13. We will also be praying this prayer ourselves during the week.
Family Prayer Meeting for primary school aged children (Wed 13th, 3.45pm-4.30pm)
Please come straight from school. Doors will be open from 3.20pm and refreshments will be available. A great opportunity for our children to be involved with the week of prayer. Adults must stay to supervise their children.
1st September 2015
After a great Summer meeting back at our building on Drummond road (with some excellent sermons being given) City Hope will be back at HAB from the 6th September. On this day we will be launching our 40 days of prayer, a season for the church to be especially 'seeking first his Kingdom and his righeousness' at the start of the academic year. It will be great to see as many people as possible there on the 6th as we launch into this season of prayer and seeking God.
The 40 days run from Monday 7th September to Friday 16th October. We start with an intensive week with a number of planned prayer meetings across the week. It is not expected that many (if any) will get to everything during the week but hopefully everyone will get to at least one meeting, if not more. The remainder of the 40 days will have a few prayer meetings and a diary with suggestions for prayer and the dates of all the meetings will be given out on the 6th. Below is a list of those meetings. (All prayer meetings will be at our building on Drummond Road unless otherwise stated)
