Day of Prayer and Fasting


Sunday, 17 March 2019 (all day)
Highfield Church, SO17 1RL

We’re holding a Day of Prayer and Fasting this Sunday, a pivotal event in our sermon series on Galatians.

The main focus will be an opportunity to reflect prayerfully upon our lives (and the life of our church) in the light of the Fruit of the Spirit. 

Aside from our normal services, church will be open throughout the day - there will be extended times of silence, as well as some shorter times of sung worship to aid us in our prayers. 
Prayer stations about the Fruit of the Spirit will be in the South Aisle and the Chancel to encourage reflection and prayer. A questionnaire to help you reflect will also be available.
Members of pastoral staff and the prayer ministry team will be around throughout the day should there be a desire for a pastoral conversation or some extended prayer.

Fasting often helps us sharpen our spiritual attention. It doesn’t have to be from food - particularly if you suffer from certain conditions (such as diabetes) or you're pregnant. It could be from social media or TV for the day. But setting aside extended time to seek God has often been a way that God’s people have sought spiritual breakthrough and fresh direction.
