Wednesday Prayer Meeting
Dinner and Prayer
Every Wednesday we eat dinner together and then we talk to God. Our prayer meeting is open to everyone - you do not need to be a member to come, we'd love you to join us.
Eating dinner together is a part of Gabalfa family life. One of our members will cook and serve dinner at 6.45pm, giving us a great opportunity to talk to each other and check in on how everyone's week is going. It will also give us a chance to get to know you if you are new to Gabalfa. Then at 7.30pm we officially start our prayer meeting and we close the meeting at 8.30pm.
We sing, pray and listen to God's word at prayer meeting.
Will I need to pray out loud?
We pray out loud so that we can hear each other and be encouraged but there is absolutely no pressure for you to do that.
I love coming to prayer meeting because not only does it give a great opportunity to catch up with other members of the church in the week, it also helps me teach my kids that being honest with Jesus is ok! They get to see that sharing our struggles and our joys with Him and with one another is a massive help to me, and to us as a Church. And they see different people praying in different ways – I am not their only example and believe me that is a good thing! It’s also great not to have to think about what we are going to eat that night.Naomi
As prayer meeting is held in the middle of the week it is a perfect opportunity for me to be strengthened until we meet again as a church on a Sunday, something which I desperately need after a busy start to a week. Coming to prayer meeting reminds me of Jesus’ gospel again, means I can have meaningful fellowship and communion with my brothers and sisters, and get the opportunity to pray and be honest before them and my heavenly Father, which is so encouraging! Its helped me grow as a Christian and I am confident that God will continue to use it to do so!Aron
I always feel better after prayer meeting. When our brothers and sisters pray for each other I find it very encouraging. It has helped me so much to become more open, pray and ask Jesus for help! Coming to prayer meeting has helped me to control my worries and nervousness during the week.Davoud
