BAPTISM

Would you like to be one of the last to be baptised on our current site?!
The chapel pool has seen thousands of believers celebrate their new life in Jesus through baptism: could we celebrate this with you?  Do get in touch if you feel this could be the opportunity for you! We’d be happy to explore the significance of baptism, and prepare you for this significant step in your faith life.

PRAYER - Into a New Season!

Father we thank you that you make all things new.
Thank you for all that we have experienced in recent times – the comfortable things, and the more challenging!
Thank you that you remind us constantly how much we need you and how much we rely on your Holy Spirit filling us each and every day.

As we have stepped over the threshold into this new season, we pray that your Holy Spirit will lead us, equip us, empower us every step of the way,
and that we would be eagerly looking to you for this leading, equipping and empowering!

Thank you that you know the path ahead of us.
Thank you that you are always with us.
Thank you that you are all-powerful in every situation we face.
Thank you that you know us through and through.
Thank you for your incredible compassion, mercy and steadfast love for each and every one of us!

We pray that our families and friends, our neighbours, our colleagues, local residents, fellow nationals, and fellow human-beings around the globe
would increasingly be aware of, open to and impacted by your presence.

May we each play our part in ‘your Kingdom coming, on earth as it is in Heaven.’

‘Not to us, Lord, not to us, but to your glory – because of your love and faithfulness to us.’
