Church Life

Prayer

Prayer is the heartbeat of our church life. We have seen God answer many prayers, both large and small, and prayer will be part of every gathering we have together. However, we are always asking Jesus to teach us how to pray more effectively, and have lots of opportunities to grow at prayer meetings for the Forest Hill congregation and for the wider Ichthus movement.

We meet monthly to pray as a congregation on the fourth Wednesday evening of each month at 7.45pm at the Ichthus Prayer House. For more details, ask one of the Ichthus Forest Hill leaders on a Sunday. We also have a prayer time at 10.15am at the Bonhoeffer Church where we meet, before our normal Sunday meeting to ask for an outpouring of God’s Spirit as the whole church gathers.

The Ichthus Movement hosts a Prayer Community that meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Prayer House from 10.00am – 1.00pm and later from 7.00 – 8.15pm, and again on Sunday afternoons from 5.30pm – 7.00pm. There is also a monthly Prayer Day on the third Saturday of the month from 10.00am – 3.00pm or for as much as you can make of it. These times are open to members of any of the Ichthus congregations across London. For more details see the Ichthus website
