Christ Church Sandown
The church considers prayer to be a very special part of a Christian's relationship with our Heavenly Father. Prayer is important both to individuals and the church community as whole. Currently the following opportunities for prayer exist as part of church life:
Every Saturday we meet for prayer online. Anyone can join in with the Zoom link being included in Mark Williams's weekly email (please contact Mark if you are not on the email and would like to be). We welcome prayer requests if you are not able to be there so use the contact form on this website to send a request via Mark. On Saturdays we pray for forthcoming church events, individual people and world concerns.
After each service the opportunity is provided for people to be prayed with. It can be very helpful to know that someone else is aware of and is praying with us for a particular situation and it might also be that we need God to touch our lives with His healing. We believe that God continues to heal both bodies and minds today and would be glad to pray with anyone as requested.
If outside our normal times you would like prayer or someone to visit you, then please do contact Mark. Likewise, in the event of an urgent prayer request, we can ensure a number of people are praying for your situation.
There are currently five home groups. Three home groups meet fortnightly on Wednesdays (in the morning at 10.45am and in the evening at 7.30pm). One home group meets weekly on Thursday evenings. The other home group meets fortnightly on Fridays (in the afternoon at 2pm). If you would like to join a home group (which meet in people's homes) then please contact Mark.
The purpose of the home groups is to provide support to their members and to allow more time than available on Sundays to look at the bible, pray and generally encourage one another. Refreshments are also provided!
