Seven Minutes with God


If you would like to grow in your friendship with God, how about beginning each day with God, reading a bit of his word (the Bible) and praying to him?

Pick up the card at the back of church entitled ‘How to have a daily prayer time: 7 minutes with God’, as an aid and download the monthly sheets from our Notices, Newsletter & Prayer Diary page below as a guide to which passages to read daily.

As you read Philippians think about these 2 big questions:
1. What does this tell me about God? Why do I need to hear this?
2. What does tell me about myself, or about others I know? How should what I find here change the way I think or act today?
