From Ascension to Pentecost, Christians of all denominations are joining in with this worldwide prayer initiative. From 13th to 23rd May we are encouraged to engage deeply in prayer and especially to pray for people to come to know Jesus.To visit the Thy Kingdom Come website for more information, special videos, multiple prayer resources, children’s activities or to sign up to the special app – click on the image above.At St. Martin’s, the church building is open for prayer on Thursday 13th and 20th from 2-4pm; Saturday 15th and 22nd from 2-4pm; and Sunday 16th and 23rd from noon till 2pm – and at each of these times visitors can make use of special prayer stations and other resources to encourage our conversation with God.
After prayerful consideration, it has been decided to temporarily close our building for worship and prayer. We appreciate this decision will be disappointing and frustrating for some but our concern is to support the government in restricting the spread of the coronavirus, and encouraging us all to stay at home.This decision will be under constant review and as soon as it feels sufficiently safe and appropriate will once more re-open the building for worship and prayer.Please join us in praying: for our nation and the world;for our health services and care workers;for all who continue to work for our benefit;for those who are unwell and those who are bereaved. In the meantime, you can continue to join us for worship each week on the St. Martin in the Bull Ring page on YouTube – just click on the image below.
Each week there are three opportunities to join us for prayer via Zoom:Mondays 9.30am – Morning PrayerWednesdays 9.00pm – Compline/Night PrayerFridays at 12.30pm – Lunchtime Prayer We spend so much time educating businesses on marketing to-dos, but we don’t want to leave out our friends with religious organizations. We see so many companies neglect their web presence and faith-based groups like churches are no exception. It used to be that having a website was just a necessary tool for getting found; however, organizations like churches, who have learned how to use their website to engage their members through digital content, have learned their website can be much more than a place to just discover the address and church service times. Here are three reasons why it is important to have a modern website for churches and other non-profit organizations. Older websites may not have all of the sharing tools that a modern website will afford, if you are working on a budget
Each Sunday, at 10.30am, there will be a simple service of Holy Communion at St. Martin’s. However our online worship will continue on the St. Martin in the Bull Ring page on YouTube, but for those without access to online worship this is an opportunity to gather for said worship, with scriptures, simple sermon, prayers of intercession, and sharing in communion.
Every Thursday and Saturday, between 1-4pm, St. Martin in the Bull Ring is partially open for private prayer. Right in the city centre of Birmingham, come and find a place of peace and rest where you can quietly pray, reflect or meditate. You may wish to light a candle in our prayer chapel. In order for us all to stay healthy and safe, please follow the guidance of our volunteer team.
