Soaking Prayer

Soaking prayer is a time to rest and wait in God’s presence, it is a time to listen and receive. As we draw close to God, He promises to draw close to us. We have been deeply encouraged, strengthened and healed as we have taken time to be still before God. You are warmly invited to come and join us, no need to book.

‘Come , all you who are thirsty, come to the waters…listen, listen to me…’ Isaiah 55

‘Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him…’ Psalm 37
