THE LIFE OF THE CHURCH

 

PRAYER TIME  AT  ST. JOHN'S

The Prayer Group has continued to meet on the 1st Friday every month with a small but faithful  attendance. It is a great opportunity to gather in God's name to pray for the world around us. And there's coffee and biscuits afterwards! I look forward to seeing you there! Even if you can't commit to every month please join us occasionally.
