Night Prayers

6 April 2017, 4/6/17 20:00– 4/6/17 21:00

All Saints Church, Buncton, Water Lane, BN44 3DX

Night Prayers

Once again we gather in the lighter evenings to pray, to engage, to listen, and be moved by the powerful love of God in the midst of a dysfunctional world.

Our prayers represent us, and as we gather we do so in the knowledge that we can only bring ourselves. We are the very essence of our prayers.

These night prayers teach us to listen and wait for the light of God illuminate our next step.

Start 8pm – Finish around 9pm
All Saints Church, Buncton, Water Lane BN44 3DX.

It promises to be a little damp, so bring a wellies, and a torch for when you leave.

I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

John 8:12

Larry Littlebird – Pueblo Elder

The Voice in the Land is a bi-annual gathering with our friends Larry and Deborah Littlebird at their home Hamaatsa, in the high desert of New Mexico. Our 2016 gathering promises to build on our growing relationship in Christ. This five day retreat will allow us to gather in the solitude of the desert, listen to the Voice of God and continue to walk the narrow path together. The song of our ancient origin in the Creator calls us all to connect with the true source of all life. It is a song of hope, liberty, freedom and most of all the Divine love in Jesus Christ, a song from the heart of God calling His/Her children home. When we sing with creation all of heaven listens to our voice and our Father is happy to bless us.
