Since there’s no special news this week other than building work, I thought I start a series of ‘thought for the week’ (don’t worry, I’ll get other people to do them too).
“The prayer meeting is the most important meeting of the week”. That’s one of those sayings that you hear thrown around a lot, but when you turn up to a meeting like the last couple it really starts to feel like it’s true.
Unfortunately in many churches, it’s often also one of the worst attended meetings of the week. We’ve really picked up on attendance at our meetings over the last year, and the effects of regular prayer together are starting to show in the people who are attending. Once God gets hold of you things really start to get scary, but it’s never a bad thing. If we can take some of the spirit that turns up in the prayer meetings (i.e. the Spirit) and carry the momentum through to the rest of our church life and our everyday lives, there’s no limit on what can happen.
I think we’re really going to start to see things rock in Springbourne this year (and I don’t just mean the music).
Get in on the ground floor. Get in to the prayer meetings.
