Stilton Prayer Focus Now
held on a Tuesday
8.00am - 8.30am
Why not start the day praying for the needs of those in our parishes, our communities and further afield as well as giving thanks for prayers answered.
This group has been meeting since January 2008 – prompted by the New Year’s Eve Hope service in Peterborough Cathedral.
We use 'God's Little Book of Love', the Bible, the Stilton Church Prayer Box and the Declaration of Hope to focus us in our prayer.
If you have a prayer request, please put it in the prayer box in the Church porch or let Richard or Stuart know. If you wish to join us to start the day just come at 8.00am; we aim to finish by 8.30am.
You are most welcome to join us in Stilton Church Meeting Room.
