Wet wet wet. It rained all day including between 2-4pm when we normally go out on Edgbaston St to pray for passers-by. On a rainy day, usually the pattern is that the rain stops between 2-4pm when we are out praying – not on Feb 6th! Despite of the wet, wind and cold we went out with plan A – We would put the chairs under cover and all would be well. No, it didn’t work. Plan B – half of the team would be out on the streets inviting folks to go inside the church for prayers. The other half of the team would be there to pray for them. It didn’t work either. Plan C – All 42 of us from the team took shelter in the church and we prayed for one another. It worked perfectly and we realised then how much we all benefited from such an encouragement from one another.

We got the group who came in the wet to

But what about doing something extra? What about spending more time talking with God?
10th Feb-27th March 2016 Pathways to God Wednesday 17th February 2016 Wednesday February 17th Lent 2016 This year during Lent we are encouraging everyone to use the season to explore different ways of encountering the living God in Jesus Christ. Our services, sermon themes, and study courses have all been designed to help us do this and you are welcome to join in as much as you can. This is the first of our Pathways to God lent sessions. Each week there will be refresh-ments from 7pm. We then begin with worship and prayer together before going off to our different groups. Please make sure you attend the course you have signed up for! If after the first week you feel you want to change courses you can join a different one next week. But this is only possible this week. We hope you will stay with the group you have decided to join. By sticking with a course you will get more out of it and others will be able to learn from you. Thank you. Opening Worship Together we say our prayer for Len
