We are developing a real passion for prayer at GC Youth under the banner "24" and we are discovering how to pray like never before! We believe prayer works, it draws us closer to God, helps us to focus on others and we hope that from the prayer we offer we will see God do astonishing things.
In addition to prayer in our Youth Services, homegroups and bible studies we have set aside some other times and ways to pray.
Every Sunday at 10.30am some 30 minutes before youth church the youth team and young people gather in the Lighthouse to pray for just 15 minutes (if you arrive earlier you can have tea and toast). During this short time we are seeking to press the re:fresh button on our lives, to set ourselves up ready to encounter God during youth church, to commit ourselves to him, the programme to him and each other to him.
We are developing a new prayer text service, where young people can register for prayer alerts to be sent to thier phone during the week. Some of these will encourage the young people to pray for others, but they will also help young people to focus on thier own lives and thier own relationship with God. To recieve texts email us with your number.
24 - Holy Ground:
We are also developing prayer events, whole evenings, days, rooms and events to prayer under the banner Holy Ground. The purpose of these events is for us to hear from God and pray for others. Using various interactive approaches to pray Holy Ground takes prayer to another level. Holy Ground events will be detailed here and we also have a dedicated Holy Ground room at our weekend away and Festival.
