St Albans and Welwyn Methodist Circuit

24 hours of prayer and fasting

St Albans And Welwyn Circuit 24 hrs of Prayer & Fasting

The St Albans and Welwyn Circuit is holding 24 hours of Prayer and Fasting from 6pm on Friday 15th March through to 6pm on Saturday 16th March.   The theme of the 24 hours is Talents, Time and Tithes.

The 24 hours have been divided into slots of an hour.  Each church has been allocated one – three hours for prayer.  You may want to join other circuit churches while they are open for prayer too.  See the list below.

Our churches slots are: Friday 15th March at 9pm – 10pm and Saturday 16th March at 7am – 8am - Oxlease

The hours between midnight and 6am will be done by Skype. Can you sign up to ½ an hour or an hour to skype or call other people in the night?  We need a minimum of 12 people, but 24 people would be better.

Each church will be provided with suitable material to assist groups in prayer.

The 24 hours will start with a service of Prayer and Praise at Ludwig Way Methodist Church at 6pm on Friday 15th.  Come and join in the praise and help us to pray together for our circuit.

There will be Prayer Stations at Birchwood Church from 11pm to midnight on Friday 15th and 11am to noon on Saturday 16th.  This will be a time to drop in and experience prayer in an interactive way and at your own pace in a calm and relaxed atmosphere.

The last two hours of the 24 hours will conclude at Hatfield Road Methodist Church Bread Prayers at 4pm.  This is a time to use dough to help us pray and bake bread for the communion service and light meal together.

Holy Communion led by Revd. Rosemary Fletcher will be at 5pm and finally at 6pm we will celebrate our time together with a light meal to break the fast.

Further details will be forthcoming. Please book the date and support this venture.
