Prayer is a healthy and natural expression of our dependence on the grace of our heavenly Father in all that we do.
We try to set aside time regularly in the life of Grace Church that is devoted to prayer. We do this for a number of reasons:
to express our reliance upon God,
to help one another in the discipline and priority of praying,
to seek God's glory in all that we do as a church
to learn to pray from one another (a key way we learn to pray is praying with others).
Once a month we have a prayer meeting for the whole church on the 16th - 'PRAY 16' - so there is no excuse for forgetting!
These usually take the form of a prayer supper - but depending on the day of the week we sometimes do brunch or breakfast, and once or twice a year we commit a 'half night to prayer'.
Weekly prayer breakfast
Every Friday morning we hold a prayer breakfast at the Vicarage (163 Colney Hatch Lane) from 6-7am - early enough that those who commute to work in the city can join us. Bacon, toast and coffee make up for the early start!
