On Sunday 30th June, we left Thatcham behind to spend a day together in the serene setting of St Cassians, Kintbury learning how to improve our prayer lives.
The day began with worship lead by Phil, before Mark brought us a potted version of How to Pray by Peter Greig
We learned that to be effective prayers, we should
- keep it simple
- keep it real
- keep it up
and we learned a simple format for prayer based on the Lord’s Prayer:
- P – Pause
- R – Rejoice
- A – Ask
- Y – Yield
We then spent the rest of the morning putting our new prayer skills into action through a variety of prayer based activities before breaking for a picnic lunch.
The afternoon was spent watching a film, doing arts and crafts, playing games or the now annual rounders match.
A great day spent together as a Church and together with God.
