Haslingfield – Week of Prayer
Haslingfield Christians are offering a Week of Prayer to our village from 5th-11th March 2014.
Haslingfield Christians includes All Saints’ Parish Church, the Methodist Church, Roman Catholic House Group and Christians who worship at other churches in the city and in other villages.
There will be 9 places in the village for you to ‘Pause and Ponder’. If you are unable to join the Guided Walk on the 8th March, just walk around the village and pause at each one a moment to read and reflect.
We want to pray with you, and for you, as we seek to strengthen our community and support each other.
Throughout the Week of Prayer:
All Saints’ Church will be open as usual – inside you will find aids to reflection and prayer; some of our praying will be still and silent, some will be creative and expressive.
As you walk around Haslingfield during our Week of Prayer you will find invitations at familiar spots to pause, ponder and pray.
If you have any requests for prayer, please drop a note in to either church. You do not have to include your name and address and the requests may be personal or general. We will pray in response to these requests at the public services, to which everyone is invited.
