What is Share & Prayer?
Share & Prayer is a group for women of all ages who want to explore what it means to follow Jesus. Typically, there are three parts to our meetings:
- Settling in over a cuppa, biscuit and chat
- Bible study — bible reading and leader-guided discussion
- Sharing any prayer requests and praying through these together
Where and when does Share & Prayer meet?
Share & Prayer meets each term on Thursdays at 10.30 a.m. in the church building in Cowl Street.
Meeting dates broadly align with Worcestershire school term dates. In Autumn 2023, meetings will run from 7th September to 26th October, then from 9th November to 14th December.
What plans do you have for this term?
The first meeting will be an informal re-grouping after our sumer break. We will remind ourselves of topics covered in the last meeting before the summer break and will pray for Evesham Baptist Church – particularly the move to the new church build – and pray for each other.
We are currently using Tom Wright’s ‘Acts for Everyone’ to guide our Bible studies.
We hope to cover chapters 14-18 by Christmas. We’re spreading each study over two weeks, making the most of Tom Wright’s questions and explanations.
There will also be a couple of flexible sessions – to be agreed by the group – and a Christmas social on 14th December.
What feedback have you had on the group?
Earlier in the year we took a good look at Share and Prayer as it is and how it could evolve.
Group members said how much they valued the opportunity the group provides to connect – with God and with each other – to continue to learn what it means to follow Jesus, and to be in a supportive, open and non-judgmental culture. It was widely agreed that, whatever was going on that day, people left feeling better for having attended the group.
“Go home feeling better, uplifted, inspired, always helpful to be together”
Those joining recently have appreciated the way in which the group has helped them get to know others and settle into church more easily.
