Prayer, talking with a sovereign and personal God, is crucial to who we are in ASC and what we seek to do. Convinced that gospel ministry is a supernatural struggle against evil, we acknowledge our utter dependence upon the Lord and the importance we give to prayer is a reflection of that trust.
A monthly prayer meeting is held with the focus on evangelism and international mission and each Sunday prior to the Morning Service, we also hold a short prayer meeting. The Growth Groups devote prayerful attention to the pastoral needs and concerns of members.
A weekly prayer diary is produced on the back of out notice sheets, with prayer points for each day. There is also a Prayer Chain which provides intercessory prayer for those who are very ill or going through difficulties in life. Confidential Prayer Ministry from Prayer Counsellors is also available after certain Services for those who wish to draw upon it.
