If we want to make our verse for the year 'Freely you have received, freely give' (Matthew 10:7-8) a reality then we need to be intentional in starting conversations with the people of our City. However we often we get stuck on how to start a conversation. To help us we are holding our 'City Connect' once a month, at each site, on a Saturday. On our City Connect Saturdays we will, through various initiatives, aim to demonstrate and communicate the love of God to our neighbours in Stratford and in Manor Park. Each initiative will help us start conversations. There will be training, prayer and it should be fun! Our next City Connect will be from 10.00am -12 noon on Saturday, 7 May, at our Stratford site. Let the conversations continue!
Anxious, unwell or grieving? Has life become complicated, scary or messy? On City Connect Saturdays we will be opening up a monthly Prayer Room, with an opportunity to meet with a site pastor or a member of the pastoral team to receive support and prayer on any issue. It will be a chance for you to share your burden and we trust that you will leave having received God's healing presence and peace.
Our next session takes place from 10.00am to 12 noon, on Saturday 7 May, at Manor Park. If you would like to book a place then please email email@example.com for Stratford, or firstname.lastname@example.org for Manor Park. We also offer prayer ministry at our Sunday services, at both sites.
