We are running a series of training days, as in previous years, to equip local Church members and ensure that they have good quality and relevant Bible teaching from experts in their fields, using interactive presentation styles.
Saturday 4 March 2017 – ‘Why don’t people come to church like they used to?’ (Revd. Charlie Kosla)
Saturday 13 May 2017 – ‘Why do bad things happen to God’s good people?’ (Dr Sam Gordon)
Saturday 4 November 2017 – ‘Why should we care for God’s creation?’ (Green Christian)
All sessions run from 9.45am to 1.00pm and there is a suggested donation of £6 to cover expenses and refreshments.
All training days will take place at Rayleigh Evangelical Church, Eastwood Road, Rayleigh, SS6 7JQ. Free parking is available.
The UEC arranges a number of prayer meetings around the region throughout the year. Future dates are:
- Tuesday 18th March 2017 – 7.30pm – Great Wakering
- Wednesday 28th June 2017 – Strawberry Tea at 6.30pm followed by Prayer at 7.30pm – Cressing
Each year the UEC sets aside a week to specifically pray about the future direction of our Church family and the individual challenges that Churches are facing. The 2017 Week of Prayer is from 21st to 28th May.
The UEC publishes ‘Prayer Focus’, a booklet full of items to give thanks for and to pray into, to assist individuals to know how best to pray. This is published in March and September each year.
