Fulwood FMC’s first Prayer Away Day took place in January at Tabor Retreat Centre on Sharoe Green Lane. As it was such a success, we’ve organised a second day – some similarities, some differences. You’ve had the date – now it’s time to sign up.
This is for anyone, top teens and above. Every Christian needs to cultivate and refresh their prayer links with God, whether you’ve been a Christian for years or just new to the idea of prayer and wondering where to start.
Prayer is one of the underlying principles of our faith. Communicating with God is an amazing privilege which can have powerful results but most of us struggle with it to some degree. This day is to encourage, inform and equip us to grow our prayer lives.
Sadly, Tabor Retreat Centre is closing down at the end of July so we have had to make other arrangements. This time it’s a trip into the country as we will be using Crown Lane FM Church as our base. Plenty of space inside and out and the chance to picnic in the great outdoors, weather permitting!
What will we do?
One of our main aims is to help us understand that we are all individuals, with different characters and therefore different ways of coming to God in prayer. As well as worshipping, relaxing and having lunch together, we will have the chance to engage in two different workshops. There will be a choice of topics, but in each there will be an introduction and explanation followed by plenty of time for you to have a go yourself. But – and please take this on board – you will not at any time be asked to do anything you don’t want to or would find embarrassing. There will be total freedom to join in what you want to, or just to disappear off into a quiet space on your own.
How do I sign up?
Use the form in the link selecting your preferred workshops (outlines for the workshops are in the link also). There’s no limit on overall numbers but if you have a particular workshop you want to sign up for, you’d do well to get in early. If you have any questions, do have a word with a member of the Prayer Team.
And, by the way, there is no charge for the day, but you do have to bring your own lunch.
