Dwell 24 hour Prayer Event, 17th-18th April

Dwell imageSharon Bryant shares the vision of ‘Dwell’ on behalf of the Alpha Team:

‘Dwell’ will take place in the Upper Room at church from 6pm on 17th April to 6pm 18th April, the weekend before the launch of our next Alpha course on the 21st April.

‘Dwell’ has followed on for a similar event the Alpha Team ran last year, however this time we will be looking at praying for St John’s, Birmingham and the World as well as Alpha!

Please do come along during the day to support the event and to pray. You are all welcome any time, both Friday and Saturday! (Apologies that some of this event will clash with the men’s breakfast).

There will be specific times set aside over the 24 hours for a more structured corporate led prayer, as well as other times set aside for quiet reflection (see programme below for more details).  Also a dedicated time for children and families.

Also please do let me know if you are able to pray for an hour over night (from midnight – 7:00 a.m.) and I will sign you up and send you some specific prayer pointers beforehand to help you pray in the night … if you are away for the weekend this is a great opportunity for you still to be involved in the event!

Looking forward to seeing you there.
