We have a new pattern of prayer for 2017!
On Mondays the team commits to pray for anyone who requests prayer but we do not meet to pray.
On Tuesdays the God at Work Group meets, this is a small group for those who are in full time work or education. This group meets at 7 pm to 8.30 pm every fortnight. During Lent we will be studying Dethroning Mammon, the Diocese’s recommended Lent Book. Email us for more information.
On Wednesdays we will meet to pray at midday in Zuri Coffee, 37 Lichfield Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 1EQ.
On Thursdays we meet to pray at 9 am in Zuri Coffee.
On Fridays we will meet at 10.30 am for Breakfast and Bible Study, the venue for this will change from week to week so you need to email us for more info.
If you would like us to pray for you please use this link to email us your prayer request in confidence. You can also send a Message on Facebook: Wolverhampton Pioneer Ministries or Twitter: @wolvespm or Instagram: wolvespm.
We use the Community of St Chad prayers. You can find the prayers for each day using these links: morning prayer and evening prayer.
What will 2017 bring? What do you hope for? What challenges have you set yourself? What promises have you made? What will be different?
We started the year at Vitalise on 1 January 2017 listening to God’s question to Adam: Where are you?
We thought about this verse in the light of the beginning of the Gospel of John and the Christmas story: John 1:1-4 and John 1:10-14. We thought about the question “where are you?” in the light of what these passages tell us about Jesus.
We reflected on where we are emotionally, spiritually, physically. We thought of God in Christ constantly asking us where we are and calling us back into a relationship with Him and one another.
We committed to ask each other throughout the year “where are you?”
We’ve spent the summer as a community thinking about baptism and confirmation and how we live as disciples of Jesus. We’ve spent the early autumn thinking about the choices we make as followers of Jesus and how our faith impacts on the day to day things. This series will continue until Advent.
We are really excited to share with you details of our service of Baptism, Confirmation and Membership which is on Sunday 23 October at 6 pm at St Chad and St Mark in Penn Fields.
We’ve got two candidates for baptism, those candidates plus six more for confirmation and all those candidates plus one more being admitted into membership of the Methodist Church. Please do join us as we celebrate faith, belonging and commitment!
