From the beginning of Redeemer, we have made it a priority to pray. We do this collectively as a church at various gatherings. Together, we want to learn to pray and be equipped to help others pray. This page has links to helps, resources and outlines of our current prayer gatherings.
We have a general pattern of prayer across the year, which looks something like this;
Spring (Jan - Mar)
Jan week of prayer, Feb night of prayer, Mar ‘Enough’
May night of prayer, Jun ‘Enough’, July night of prayer
Winter (Sep - Dec)
Sept month of prayer, Nov ‘Enough’, Dec night of prayer
Half Night of Prayer - Termly
Once a term, all the churches that are part of our network gather in 'hubs' (groupings of churches) for a half night of prayer on a Friday. Last year saw around 3000 people gathering at once!
On Sundays we have a pre-service prayer - this is an unstructured time where anybody who would like to pray may. Some folks like to sit quietly, others pace around singing or simply lie on the floor! Small groups may gather and pray together. At some point a designated leader may gather everyone to pray together for a short time.
We believe God's word is powerful and brings encouragement, challenge and comfort. He is a good Father who knows us intimately and calls us to repentance to be free of anything that hinders us enjoying that intimacy and glorifying Him. After our services we leave some time for folks to minister to one another and the leaders would also love to pray with you.
We provide links to various resources that we may not agree with in their entirety but still see value in them, please use your discretion and discuss them in your local church community.
