Prayer Ministry Training Day

Developing a Prayer Ministry

Saturday 18th April - 10am to 4.30pm

David Betts, a speaker from New Wine will be leading the day with his team.

There will be the opportunity to hear about why and how to pray for others, and during the four practical sessions we will have the chance to practice praying for one another in a safe and encouraging environment. The aim of any prayer ministry is to get more people praying more and strengthening one another.

September 2015

Dear Friends,

I receive a variety of daily readings and thoughts via the computer each day. The following is an extract which I really wanted to share with you ( if you would like to subscribe to the readings which are free then go to Premier Radio, and find BE STILL AND KNOW.) 

God Bless
Rev Michelle Ireland

 

Genesis 37:5 NLT

"One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever."

Joseph, the favoured son of Jacob, dressed in a fine coat, dreams what appears on the surface an impossible dream. His dream stirs up resentment and bitter opposition from his own brothers. They see his dream as nothing more than vain boasting and take offence at the thought that they must bow in acknowledgement of their ‘little brother’.

A dream like that is only ever an anticipatory intuition of some future reality. To invest oneself in such a dream takes courage and conviction. There can be little evidence of the success of the dreamer at the start of their pursuit of the dream. Yet, many of us carry dreams within our hearts. Dreams no doubt seeded by God; dreams for which we are the bearers and the means of their realisation. In a cynical age of criticism and rationality, it is increasingly difficult to live the dream.

However, no one can realise the dream save the dreamer, and the path to its realisation can, in fact, be fraught with difficulty. Joseph was to be tested at every stage of his dream, and throughout he had to discover the nature of both God’s provision and God’s timing. A dream cannot be birthed ahead of its time, yet if neglected can die with us, never having been considered worthy of investment. Much like the talent buried in the ground, it never matures and therefore offers no return to its principle shareholder, God.

God invites you to dream and to accept responsibility for that dream and to seed it through declaring it and prayerfully inviting God to fertilise it with his spirit. Where such a dream will carry you cannot be known at the outset. Yet to pursue it with a humble faithfulness is perhaps the greatest step of faith you may ever initiate.

With September marking the beginning of a New Methodist Year and also a time to celebrate Harvest Thanksgiving, we are reminded of the opportunities, privileges and necessities of sowing seeds and dreaming dreams. Let’s go for it, let’s reach further than we have ever done before, in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus. AMEN

24-Hour Worship

From 10:30am on Saturday 5th Sept
until 10:30am on Sunday 6th Sept

On 5th of September at 10:30 a.m., members of Peasedown Methodist Church and other surrounding churches will be starting a 24-hour time of worship. We are hoping this will be an amazing time of continuous prayer and praise.

It is a completely open event! Anyone (at any time) can come in and worship, pray, wait in God's presence, share testimonies/words or just come in and listen and see what its all about!

The 24 hours will be split into sessions with different worship leaders, band members and styles of worship! Information regarding this will be released nearer the time.

'Strictly Worship' (a worship event that we hold on the first Saturday of every other month) coincides with 24 hour worship and will last for an extended time of 2 hours between 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. on Saturday evening!

The event will draw to a close at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday 6th of September, which will lead straight into our Sunday morning service.

Psalm 71:8 "My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendour, all day long!"
