Overflow Prayer Gathering
Wednesday Night 7:30-9PM, 29 March 2023
Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. (Col 2.6-7)
St James has embraced a 10 year vision of becoming ‘an overflowing church’: a gathering of God’s people marked by overflowing joy, overflowing impact, and overflowing growth.
We know this will only come about through the work of the Holy Spirit in answer to our prayerful dependence on God, and this is the source of our confidence! We are committing to gather regularly, to bring to God our praise and worship, our thanks, and our requests and longings for the overflow of the gospel in our lives, in our church and in the Inner West.
In describing the vision we have said we want to ‘live prayerfully as ambassadors for Christ’, to be ‘quick to recognise and celebrate God’s good work among us’. As an expression of this, our gatherings will be times when we:
- Praise God in song
- Confess our dependence on him to grow us in Christlikeness and to grow his gospel in the world
- Hear and celebrate testimonies of his overflowing work in people’s lives
- Pray wholeheartedly for the an overflow of joy, impact and growth
Come along for a time of gathering with humility, delight and dependence on our heavenly Father. Overflow Prayer Gathering is for St James Regulars from all congregations. We don’t currently have a kids program available, but kids and youth are very welcome. This night will be held in the church building, starting at 7:30pm and concluding at 9pm.
Come along with your Growth Group if you meet on Wednesday nights.
