***PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO SILENT PRAYER THIS MONTH.*** The next Silent Prayer hour will take place Sunday 30th June
SILENT PRAYER HOUR
An opportunity to come and sit in the Church and ‘Just Be’ with God in silent prayer. There are no hymns or spoken words, just a peaceful prayerful space for time with God. Some occasions may include reflective music played in the background, other times the Church may be in silence. This prayer time is available for the hour, but people are welcome to come and leave at anytime during this period and stay as little or as long as they wish. This invitation is open to everyone regardless of who you are… It is open to anyone from any Church and those who would not normally attend a Church. Everyone is welcome in God’s House.
Last Sunday of each month @ St Francis Church, Leigh Park
NEXT SERVICE: The next Silent Prayer with God Hour will take place Sunday 30th June 2019 6pm-7pm

We continue to hold in our hearts the people who ask of our prayers
