Diocesan Day of Prayer – 8 December 2022

‘Prayer is where the action is!’ – John Wesley

‘Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.’ – Psalm 31:24

Living in a time of rapid change and uncertainty in our world, we are seeking to faithfully to discern the vision God has for our diocese. We believe it is foundational to prioritise prayer and thanksgiving during this process, to create space as his church to seek his face together.  

We have designated the second Thursday of every month a special diocesan day of worship and prayer and look forward to our next day of prayer on 8 December 2022. We do hope that you will come along to one or many of these gatherings, as we wait on the Lord in expectation for his guidance, refreshment and renewal.

These days of prayer are led by the bishops, archdeacons and local church leaders gathering in different locations across the diocese and throughout the day, culminating in Southwell for Evensong in Southwell Minster at 5.30pm and contemporary worship and prayer in the State Chamber at 7.45pm.

A simple supper is served at Bishop’s Manor after Evensong for those who would like to stay on or who might be arriving straight from work for worship and prayer. (Sign up for supper here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/simple-supper-at-bishops-manor-8th-december-2022-tickets-476521838647)

You are very welcome to come along to any of the gatherings! We hope that some might wish to come as a church group or a leadership team, using this as an opportunity to receive, to be encouraged and to be blessed by time together with God.
