Easter Week (10th-14th April)

…. a week to dwell with God,
tarry a while with the King of Kings

We believe that PRAYER is the engine-room of a fruitful church.

Building upon the successful Prayer Week held in January, we would like to encourage everyone at GSFC to spare an hour during Easter Week to join others in prayer for the life and work of GSFC in the community as well as in the wider world in which we live..

The church will be open from 9.00am until 9.00pm Monday/Thursday (light meal & Communion service at 7.30pm on Maundy Thursday) culminating in the Good Friday celebration at 11.00am.

The theme for each day will be different (see the sign-up sheets). Guidelines for each theme will be available to assist you during your time of prayer & reflection.

Please sign-up on the relevant sheet(s) below indicating when you would be able  to come into church and pray.
(Please note that there is no limit as to the number of people who can sign-up within each slot.
Also, feel free to sign-up for as many slots as you feel led.)
