Small Groups and Prayer—We are putting an emphasis on prayer over the coming months that will culminate in us participating in a national prayer initiative called ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ in late May. To support this the teaching in our small groups over the next few months will be on prayer using material put together by Pete Greig and the 24/7 prayer initiative and HTB in London. I am sure we are going to be helped and inspired by this teaching and look forward to God continuing to shape our relationship with him.
