Prayer and Bible Study

The Ascension Prayer Group meets on the second Monday of each month at 8 pm, at a variety of venues. If you would like to join them, you will be very welcome – ask for details or check the noticesheet. If you would like the group to offer special prayers, prayer cards are available in the pews and can be left in the box on the tract table.

New Daylight is the title of the Bible reading notes that several members of the congregation use daily, and find helpful. It costs £4.30 for four months. Val McFarlane would be very happy to show you the notes and order a set.

We meet for Bible Study, usually having a series for a few weeks, then a break, then another series. In Advent 2016 we studied “The Promise of His Glory”, looking at the readings we use every year for Nine Lessons and Carols. In Lent 2017 we were part of the Allestree Churches Together series of studies. Groups met at Clive and Gareth’s and at the Vicarage.

We used “Thy Kingdom Come”, the Archbishops’ Prayer Initiative at Pentecost 2017 to work on the prayer life of the church. Peter produced this leaflet – thy kingdom come. We are now saying Evening Prayer together most Tuesday afternoons at 4 pm, and there are plans for a Prayer Walk in the summer and a new Prayer Group in the autumn.
