Our prayerful response to the Coronavirus
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer - Romans 12:12
Prayer is one of our key areas of focus in 2020/2021 as John shared in the vision talk, and we recognise that it is vital for us in this season of difficulty and uncertainty. Throughout January in 2021 we will be joining with VCUKI in committing to 21 days or prayer, click the link below for full details.
21 days of Prayer
10 days of constant prayer
Since 2011, the Church across Nottingham and Notts has joined together in some form of fervent and constant prayer during the 10 days between Ascension and Pentecost.
We're going through the strangest of times - times that need fervent prayer maybe more than ever.

How can we pray in this season?
Alongside personal prayer and praying with your online group remotely, there are other ways you can get involved in prayer, inviting God’s power and presence into the challenges we are facing. If we want to see our lives and communities transformed it starts in prayer…. As Billy Graham said, ‘To get a nation back on its feet, we must first get down on our knees.'
Arrange to pray virtually with one or two others in your online group regularly, perhaps once a week or once a month. If you're praying regularly on a personal level we'd recommend groups are made up of people of the same sex. If you're not in an online group click here to connect with us.
A prayer for this time written by Debby Wright is a useful resource to unite in prayer as the body of Christ around the world. Also, take a look at Dave Miller's great talk all about prayer.
Light a candle
During Covid-19, Debby has also encouraged us to join together in lighting a candle and praying or being silent on a Sunday evening for a few minutes. Pray for God's light to break into the current situation, that His kingdom would come bringing hope, healing and transformation.
Sunday prayer meetings
Join us to pray over Zoom before both of our online Sunday services. The groups will meet at 09:30 and 18:15.
