Sunday Morning Prayer for the church
All who want God to bless St Matthew’s are welcome to seek Him and His will for us, 9 am to 10 am in the prayer room. Come for all the time or part of the time. If the room gets too small, let’s rejoice and find a bigger one. Nothing is achieved for God’s kingdom without prayer.
