Prayer is simply conversation with God. It’s about spending time with Him and building a relationship by talking and listening to Him. God wants us to talk to Him about everything, and to share our concerns for ourselves and those of other people.
When we pray we open the door for Him to come into our problems and situations and work on them. Prayer makes us partners with God. Although we cannot change people, God can minister to their hearts and reach them.
At FBC we have great faith in the importance and power of prayer. Together with our times of worship on a Sunday, we have various opportunities to pray for and each other.
We see prayer ministry as an opportunity to come alongside those who need prayerful support.
Anyone wishing for prayer after the 10.30 am service on a Sunday can go to the Minister's Room. Two people will be available to pray for and alongside that person, bringing all their needs to God. On occasions we weep with those who weep, for needs sometimes too deep to express, but still God sees and hears our cries to Him and He comes to help and heal.
Please be assured that every request is treated with confidentiality and sensitivity.
Early Morning Prayer
Every Wednesday morning at 7.30 am, a group of us meets at FBC to pray for the needs of our church, our country and the world. Everyone is very welcome to join us.
FBC POST (Prayer Offerings Shared Together)
Each week people who have signed up to the FBC POST receive an e-mail with prayer requests from activities and groups within the church (and some outside of church, that our members are involved with). A different group is prayed for each day.
For more details or to ask to receive FBC POST in the future, please contact us.
Confidential Prayer Chain
This is a group of people within the fellowship who believe in the power of prayer and find it a privilege to pray for others. Confidentiality is respected at all times.
If you are in need of prayer (either for yourself or for someone else), please do not hesitate to email Sue Stillwell or contact us and you will be put in touch with Sue.
