Worshipping communities and individuals in and around Gloucestershire are invited to join in monthly prayers on Zoom for the work of the church in this area.
“Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Prayer needs to be at the heart of all we are and do, so as we continue to live our LIFE Together in this diocese, there will be a monthly online prayer gathering over Zoom. This is an exciting opportunity for us to gather across our many different local contexts and to discover new depths to prayer together.
Bishop Rachel writes, “The intention is that this is a time of prayer for anyone and everyone, regardless of age, story, church tradition or familiarity with prayer. All that is required is a willingness to join in with what God is doing, as we bring our thanks and desires to God. No expertise or previous experience is required, and no one will be asked to speak unless they wish to do so.”
The prayer gathering will last no more than 30 minutes and will be scheduled for a different time each month so as to be accessible to different people during the course of the year. Bishop Rachel or Bishop Robert will be present to welcome people, and each gathering will be led by someone different.
- Monday, 7 February, 5:30 pm, led by Bishop Robert, from St Barnabas Church, Gloucester
- Monday, 28 March, 10:30 am, led by Bishop Rachel
