Teach Me To Pray course – starts 11th September

  We are instructed as Christians to pray continually but not how to pray. The way we pray in church is not the way we pray at home, nor how we might pray walking down the road. There are lots of ways to pray and there are techniques we can use to make prayer easier.

Whether you are a new Christian or a long time believer there will be something here for you.
