This Big Wednesday, we are going BIG.
We are hosting 24 hours online prayer from 10pm Tuesday (23rd) through to 10pm on Wednesday (24th) June.
Now more than ever, we need to seek God in prayer.
Jesus leads the church, and one of the ways that we work that out is when we gather to pray, worship and tune in to what he's saying to us.
Join us for any time slots during the 24 hour period which will be filled with the unpredictable except that we can predict that there will be lots of worship and prayer.
