Prayer and Spirituality
Without prayer, we are nothing more than another social service. We must hit the ground kneeling rather than running.
We so often try to run ahead of God, forgetting the reality that God is more than a central partner in everything that we do. Church and Community wants to help you as you place prayer at the top of the priority list and explore the importance of your Christian spirituality. We want to help you to find new ways and a new energy to cry out to God for change in your community and your world. Please explore this page to find resources and organisations to help you to deepen your Christian spirituality and strengthen your dependency on God.
