National Prayer Weekend 23rd-25th September 2016

NATIONAL PRAYER WEEKEND 23rd – 25th September is ‘a weekend to initiate a wave of prayer over our nation – one life, one street, one community at a time.’
Churches Together in Woodingdean are registered to take part in this and a programme of events has been organised by each church.
DBC has two three-hour slots during the weekend:-
Saturday – 10am-1pm at DBC Community Greengrocers
Sunday –     1pm-4pm at DBC Community Greengrocers
The “wave of prayer” will culminate in a united Prayer and Praise service at Holy Cross Church on the Sunday from 5.30-6.45pm.
It is hoped that as many people as possible can attend at some point and get involved in this fantastic initiative to impact our community. TryXPraying
