Praying for the building project

Prayer Week and Gift Day

The results of the Gift Day on 1 July, following our Week of Prayer  (25 - 30 June), were announced on Sunday 8 July. By the end of the first week, an amazing £160,000 had been given or pledged for the building project by the congregations of St John’s, Riverside and St Faith’s.

It's still not too late to give as part of the Gift Day.  Our target is £300,000.

Please continue to use the prayer diary over the coming weeks and months to pray for the ministry of St John’s, Riverside and St Faith’s.

Copies are still available in church or you can download the diary here.


Please pray for the project:

  • Give thanks for God's provision of this building and for his timing.
  • Give thanks for the monies received so far, for the generous donations which enabled us to buy this building and pay the professional fees to date, and pray that funds will be provided to complete the work.
  • Pray for wisdom for those making decisions about what to cut from the plans to remain within budget.
  • Pray for the work of the architects, the engineers and all those who will undertake work on our behalf, and for the selection of the building contractors.
  • Pray that, when completed, the building will be well used and will bring glory to God.
  • Pray that, until the conversion is completed, we will be able to accommodate our overflowing meetings safely and practically.
  • Prayerfully consider how you can help.

“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain.”
