What is Share & Prayer?
Share & Prayer is a group for women of all ages who want to explore what it means to follow Jesus.
- We look at the Bible together
- We discuss the Bible’s application to us
- We share our lives, the joys and the struggles
- We encourage each other
- We pray for one another and others known to us
Where and when does Share & Prayer meet?
Share & Prayer meetings are starting again from 9th September 2021. The group will be meeting on Thursdays at 10.30 a.m. in the church building in Cowl Street.
Meeting dates tend to align with Worcestershire school term dates. This term, meetings will run from 9th September to 21st October, then from 4th November to 9th December.
What plans do you have for this term?
The first meeting will be an informal re-grouping after our sumer break. On 16th September, one of our young people will join us to speak about action she is taking ahead of COP26; see https://ukcop26.org
On 23rd September, we will continue a Bible study started in the summer term.
How did the group run across lockdown?
Until mid-March 2020, Share & Prayer met on Thursday mornings at the church. These were regular meetings, with around 14-16 people and involved conversation over tea/coffee, around 45 minutes studying and discussing a Bible passage, sharing prayer needs and praying together.
Once the Government announced the ‘Stay at Home’ policy in March 2020, we had to think of different ways of keeping in touch with each other. WhatsApp, group emails and, in late April, Zoom were wonderful channels for staying in touch, encouraging each other and sharing prayer requests. We soon settled into regular Share & Prayer weekly meeting to include a reflection/meditation, sharing prayer needs and praying.
Our group continued to share and meet online until June 2021 when we were able to hold our first post-lockdown in-person meetings in the church.
How did members find the virtual S&P experience
Share & Prayer has been a life saver. I’ve had support from fellow Christians all the way through the pandemic.
Share & Prayer has enabled me to meet in small groups with the ladies and support each other in our life in Christ. We have talked about fears and struggles without fear of rejection.
One thing I remember from Share & Prayer in 2020 is…
…the warmth, love, companionship that shines out.
…the commitment to pray.
…being brave and joining in.
