Prayer at Alabaré
During all our prayer times we intercede for our friends, families and those who have requested our prayer. We believe that God not only hears but answers prayer , but not always in the way we might expect.
If you would like prayer for yourself or a friend then please e mail us your request. If you would like us to pray with you then either telephone for an appointment or join us on a Sunday evening at 6.30 p.m.
On Sunday evenings we meet from 6.30 p.m. to 8.00 p.m. You are warmly invited to join us at our Charismatic prayer and praise meeting. We begin by singing our thanks and praise to God, opening ourselves to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This normally is followed by a reading from scripture or prophecy when we reflect on Gods word and when we each have an opportunity to share if we wish. The meeting draws to a close with intercessions and ministering to people in prayer if they request.
Anyone is welcome to join us and we would encourage musicians to bring their instruments. The meeting is followed by tea & coffee with an opportunity for fellowship.
Exposition / Adoration
Every morning Monday-Friday from 7.00 a.m – 7.30 a.m. the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for silent adoration, meditation and prayer. This is a practice which is common in the Roman Catholic tradition. This is an opportunity for listening to the Lord, reflecting on his word and giving thanks for his great mercies towards us.
We meet for prayer every day of the week at differing times and in differing styles.
From Monday to Friday we meet between 7.00 a.m. and 7.30 a.m. The first half hour is in quiet meditation. At 7.30 a.m. we pray the Prayer of the Church when a group is present which is made up of a hymn, psalms, a reading and intercessions. You can join for any part of the prayer and there is no need to stay until the end.
On a Saturday, when groups are in, we meet for Welcome to Sunday at 5.00 p.m.
Welcome to Sunday
Sometimes at 5.00 p.m. on Saturday evening we gather for an informal liturgy to which everyone is welcome. This is a short service which reminds us that the Lord’s day has begun and should be kept holy. We light a candle as a symbol of Christ the Light being present among us and read the Gospel of Sunday to prepare us to receive God’s word. This is followed by the sharing of wine or grape juice and the breaking of bread giving thanks to God for the fruit of the earth. At the same time we give thanks for the blessings of the week that has passed and with thanksgiving pray for the needs of the coming week. Children are welcome at this short service that lasts about 25 minutes.
