Join us for our 2024
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Ephesians 6:18-19 (NIV)
Redeemer Church has started 2024 with a theme of prayer. This theme runs like a thread through the history of the church with the first gatherings of this community almost 20 years ago being devoted to prayer. It is also one of our church values – Praying with Faith. The aim of this prayer week from the 12th to the 15th of February is to grow in our practice of prayer. We want to develop better prayer habits in our personal devotion. We want to learn from each other as we pray in small groups and we want to call out to God together in a corporate prayer meeting.
Prayer reminds us that we are dependent on God for everything, The act of prayer helps us to take advantage of the access we have to our Father in heaven. There are so many ways to pray – each one a gift from God. We can pray prayers of repentance, prayers of gratitude and worship, prayers for breakthrough and cries for help. Our hope is that this week, each one of us, will learn a little more about prayer and will be inspired to keep growing in prayer long after the week is over.
If you have any prayer requests, or would like to know more about the prayer week, please send us an email on email@example.com.

A Day of Personal Prayer
On Wednesday, the 14th of February, we will have a day of personal prayer. You can spend time throughout the day praying for whatever God puts on your heart.
Here are some points to guide you as you pray throughout the day:
- Thank God for every prayer he has answered in your life.
- Ask God to teach you how to pray better (like the disciples did).
- Write down things you feel God has been speaking to you about this week.
- Pray through a scripture (like Psalm 23) turning each verse into a prayer of gratitude or a request for God to do that very thing in your life.
Thursday - 15 February 2024
Prayer & Fasting
On Thursday, the 15th of February, we will have a day of Prayer and Fasting. This will be followed by a Prayer & Worship Meeting in the evening at the Church at 19:00.
We look forward to seeing you all at the prayer meeting and hearing about how God has spoken to you throughout the prayer week.
We have prepared a guide to assist you if you are new to fasting. You can find a copy of the guide here.
Over and above the Prayer Week events, we will also have our usual weekly prayer meeting on Friday morning at 6:30 am on the church premises. We would love for you to join us.
