What’s happening at Eastwood Parish Church…..
Prayer Space – 2 x 12 = 24 hours
‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place’ Mark 6v31
Sometimes we just need to be given a little help or a reason to help us focus, free from the hustle and bustle of daily life, to go somewhere we can take time out to be alone with God, to connect with God in a quiet, peaceful place.
Our target is to fill the space with continuous prayer and quiet contemplation for the 2 periods of 14 hours. We will provide a space to help stimulate visitors to read, think and pray for a variety of things; for themselves, for family and friends, for the community, and for others around the world.
Our last ‘Prayer Space’ held in October was supported by 25 adults and 7 youngsters accumulating 51 hours of prayer and contemplation. Watch out for our next period of ‘Prayer Space’
