As the Methodist Church in Scotland prepares to be involved in new ways in the Connexional Evangelism and Growth strategy we have been encouraged to pray, perhaps finding new and varied ways to pray together.
As one small offering towards the wider prayer menu of the whole district, Andrew and Jill Baker plan to offer ‘Prayer in the Evening’ on each of the following Saturday evenings – and if you would like to join us on Zoom to share in that, you would be very welcome.
- Saturday 31st July
- Saturday 7th August
- Saturday 14th August
- Saturday 21st August
A Zoom link (the same for each week) is available from either of us or from the District Administrator, Sue Marshall-Jennings.
Our hope is that different people attending the prayer time would read/lead various sections of the worship. The liturgy will be based on the one found at pp15-25 in the Methodist Worship Book and will be posted in the chat for each meeting and sent out with the Zoom link (although any printed copies must be destroyed after the meetings for copyright reasons).
The whole service takes less than 15 minutes; the Zoom room will open at 9pm on the dates above, allowing a short time for conversation/sharing concerns for prayer and the liturgy will begin at 9:15pm after which participants will depart in silence, with the meeting closing by 9:30pm.
So do contact one of us or Sue if you would like to give this a try on one or more of the Saturday evenings over the summer period.
With all good wishes,
