NPT Circuit engaged in a variety of prayer events during April 2019. All who attended were enriched by their experience of sharing together in prayer for the Circuits in the Wales Synod, our local communities and the wider world. Some of the prayer activities in the Churches are continuing.
JERSEY MARINE – We used a prayer leaf to represent a different Circuit for which individuals prayed during the week.
TAIBACH – The focus of our prayer stations were the events of Easter and the empty tomb. We prayed for the distressing situations in our world and asked God to bring to these the victory of the empty tomb and the hope of the resurrection. We each prayed for three people we know who don’t yet know Jesus as their friend and Saviour asking that he will touch their lives and hearts. We committed ourselves to pray for these people every day that they may feel the renewing power of the Holy Spirit.
SANDFIELDS – We hosted a Circuit ‘share prayer’ event and events for families and young people.
NEATH – We visited Gnoll Park Estate and prayed over our town centre and the churches in Neath.
SKEWEN – We held a prayer walk on Good Friday passing through the local park to Ty Santes Ffair Commumity hall for an ecumenical open air service.
NORTH CORNELLY AND CYMMER – We organised a prayer diary for the whole of the month.
GLYNCORRWG AND GLYNNEATH – We engaged in prayer during weekly Sunday Worship.
This years Easter offering dedication service will take place at Taibach Wesley Church, Incline Row, Taibach on Wednesday May 22 2019 at 7:00pm
Speaker – Reverend Rosemary Davies
As part of Prayer Month, Neath Port Talbot Methodist Circuit are holding a “Share Prayer” event on Saturday 6th April at Sandfields Methodist Church, Western Avenue, Port Talbot. Doors will open at 9:30 am, with refreshments being served until 10 am. The session will finish at 12:30 pm..
This will be a morning of exploring different ways, and purposes, of praying through interactive workshop sessions.
Workshops will include:
- pastoral prayer, where there will be an opportunity to practise praying for, and with, others;
- silent/ meditative prayer, where there will be an opportunity to explore the use of music, pictures and objects in prayer;
- and a prayer station workshop which will explore setting up and using prayer stations to focus prayers; We will be creating a prayer station which focuses on Christianity in our lives as a whole. For this, there is an invitation to bring along an object which is symbolic of your life within the church, and another that is symbolic of your life outside of the church.
