Please join with us in praying for Grace Church Beckenham, led by Matt Dew-Jones, as they continue to partner with Christ Church Bromley and build towards a full launch (God willing) in September 2021.
People – Praise God for growing a great leadership team and a launch team (of around 30 adults and 15 children) with a lovely mix of gifting and age, and an evident passion to serve Jesus. Pray a few more would join as we move towards September.
Venue – Pray the Lord opens the right doors and gives us wisdom in our decision-making. Alongside ongoing conversations with local churches, the council have asked us for a formal ‘expression of interest’ as they look for a new leaseholder for Beckenham Public Hall.
Reaching out – Pray for a new mums’ ‘support group’ that got off to a great start last week. Please pray for the 10 new mums coming along and for the Christians in that number as they look to speak of Jesus. As personal evangelism has grown harder and harder in Lockdown 3.0, pray for renewed boldness and opportunities as restrictions begin to ease.
Discipleship – Please pray God establishes a few new believers amongst us and saves a few people who are seriously looking into the gospel. Pray as we equip the church for works of service.
