Prayer is at the heart of everything that a church is and does. This is true for us at Cornerstone. Prayer is central in our worship services, at weekends and through the week. There are opportunities to pray quietly on our own and together with others.
As a church we are praying for God’s vision for our future. The specific invitation is to join together in prayer, wherever you are, on Thursday evenings, between 9.00 and 9.30 pm. You may have time to sit and pray. You may be able to light a candle. Of course you can pray for God’s guidance for us at any time.
One specific opportunity is Prayers for Peace on Fridays: a half hour time of informal prayer together for peace in our world and peace in our lives. This takes place in the Chapel at Cornerstone. All are welcome.
Another opportunity for prayer is the Revival Prayer Group, which meets in the Chapel 7.30–8.30 pm on Wednesdays (starting on 5 February 2014), led by Krou Assoua and Tabitha Douglas.
The Chapel is open through the week for private prayer – occasionally there are short services and prayer groups, but you are still welcome to be there, even if you don’t want to join in.
You may want someone to pray with you. Throughout much of the week there is a Pastoral Worker available to listen or to pray. The Ministers are also available to pray with you. Ask the Pastoral Worker or Receptionist.
There is a basket for written prayers in the entrance of the Chapel. These prayers are included in services on Sundays and through the week.
Cornerstone has an email prayer network of people who will pray for anyone who asks. If you would like prayers said for you through this network, then contact Maggie Greaves (whose contact details are available to church members on the This and That website).
We add prayers for the day or for the week to our facebook page (not individual’s prayers). If you want to receive these simply go to Christ the Cornerstone’s facebook page and tell us that you like us.
You can also request prayer through the ‘Send a Prayer Request’ link at the foot of this window.
