Services and Prayer
We believe that in all circumstances everyone and anyone can turn to God in prayer.
We believe in a God who listens to our prayers and sometimes that doesn't always feel like the case and it definitely doesn't mean we get the answer we want to all those prayers.
We can have confidence in a God who loves us and is listening.
"Wanting to pray is the beginning of a relationship with God that can grow and grow.

Don't just look for results. Don't give up when it gets hard. Trying to pray is praying.
Remember, God is present even in the darkness.
Praying can be woven into everyday life. Prayer is not just something done in church. It is about praying with others, praying alone, at any time and any place. It is living life in a relationship with God.
When we pray, there are millions of Christian people all around the world also praying; daily in churches, in their own homes, in their cars, at work. You might not hear them. You might feel very alone in your prayer; but you are not alone.
There is no such thing as private prayer because when we pray we are caught up in something much bigger than ourselves. There is no “my” prayer. It is, as the beginning of the Lord’s Prayer states, “our”.
The conversation starts here."
