We hope you are keeping well.
There is still lots going on, and lots of ways to stay connected. If you would like prayer for anything, please email it in to email@example.com
A couple of things to keep you updated about.
The Marriage Course - Starts 24th April 8 pm
Sign up here
Alpha Online - Who will you invite?
We want to be a praying church, and this is something that it feels like we need to be doing more than ever.
We are running 24/7 prayer all throughout this period of lockdown. We would love for you to sign up for a slot - the Virtual Prayer Room on Facebook is a great place to encourage one another and pray 'together', but you don't need to be on Facebook to sign up to a slot!
Do also join us for the 6 each week, as we gather for 'A Call to Prayer'. This week we will be praying into our vision.
Please be praying all through the week, and feed any words and pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org
Other ways to pray:
Join us for morning (9am) or evening prayer (5pm) each weekday - stjohnscrawley.com/dailyprayer
11.02 am and 3.16 pm - join us in setting your alarm at 11.02 am (from Luke 11:2) and 3.16 pm (John 3:16) to pray for God's Kingdom to come, people to come to faith and for God's love to be known across Crawley.
Let's pray and see things shift in the lives of ourselves, families, friends, town, nation and world!
Our 'Love Your Neighbour' campaign is up and running, and we are already seeing the number of ways in which we can all play our part to reach out and offer much-needed help to those who are most isolated, vulnerable or unwell.
At 'Love Your Neighbour', we have partnered with the Crawley FoodBank Collective providing an emergency food and supplies bank to get essential supplies to those in need. We are also gathering volunteer helpforce teams to sustain regular contact with those in isolation and to assist with vital errands on their behalf.
We'd love as many people as possible to get involved!
We need people to:
- Give to our emergency food and supplies bank
- Become a phone friend
- Join the Helpforce team
- Rep Love Your Neighbour
