We believe that prayer is the fuel that fires our church and keeps us moving forward. We're passionate about prayer and it is what changes cultures and shapes society. We pray regularly for the sick, each other and those visiting on Sundays. We pray in our missional communities and life groups. We believe in the power of individual prayer, gathering of intercessors (a person who prays on behalf of someone or something else) and corporate prayer as a whole church family.
Our corporate prayer life is focussed around our Thirst events.
Thirst Weekly: Every Friday morning (in term time) we will gather to pray between 7am-8am at Kings House. These meetings will be themed around praying for specific areas we are passionate about seeing breakthrough in. Each week will be hosted by leaders with a particular passion to see God bring breakthrough in these areas.Week 1: RevivalWeek 2: Bedfordshire and King's Arms Church.Week 3: The NationsWeek 4: Government and world leaders.
Thirst Monthly: Once a month we will gather to pray for an hour before our evening service between 6pm-7pm at Kings House. These times will be Holy Spirit led, full of worship and prophetic direction as we seek God for an increase of His presence and power in our life as a community.
Thirst 24: Once a term we stop everything else we do as a church and focus on gathering together to seek God for a 24-36 hour period. During this time we will often have a dedicated prayer space for use during the day with interactive and creative ways of engaging with God. Thirst 24 concludes with two corporate prayer settings: first, our all age family hour between 6-7pm with loads of fun, noise and activity! Second, our evening prayer celebration between 7:45 - 9:30pm where we worship, celebrate and call on God for our community. Not to be missed!
Thirst Pre-Match Prayer: Every Sunday morning we have pre-match prayerbetween 9am-9.25am as we ask God for the outpouring of His presence on all thathappens on our Sunday gatherings.You can find more details in our calendar.
