48 hours of nonstop prayer!

On the 12th – 14th June, St Gregory’s Church, Sudbury are hosting 48 hours of non stop prayer with the idea ‘that every household in the parish of St Gregory be given the opportunity to have prayer said for them’. You are invited to pop in at any time day or night to light a candle, explore the prayer stations, walk the labyrinth or just spend time reflecting quietly. There will be occasional services taking place throughout the weekend (see below for details), which all are welcome to attend. They will be held in the top part of the church and the rest of the church will remain open to visitors during these times.

Rev’d Helen Mitchell of St Gregory’s, explains the Prayer 48 promise:

“We have always prayed for the community, but we want everyone in and around our parish to know that, and to know that we are listening to what is on their hearts, so they know that God, too, is listening to them.”
“We promise that will pray for every request we receive and that there will be some-one in the church praying for Sudbury and its people every moment, day and night, for the whole 48 hours. ”

 

If you are unable able to make it along to the church for the prayer time you can always pick up a ‘prayer request postcard’ from St Gregory’s Church, simply fill it in and return it by posting it in one of the special green boxes at St Gregory’s Church, the Library, Roy’s, Waitrose, and Aldi. You can also request prayer exting 07754 869171, email , twitter or facebook
