Prayer is at the heartbeat of who we are as a church. Put simply, we are in a conversation with God, and that is incredibly important in releasing our own feelings to Him and hearing what He wants to say to us.
To the Christian, prayer is a part of everyday life, but we know how setting time aside to join together in prayer is really helpful. Connect on events or Facebook to see where we are praying together this week.
We often have a time to pray specifically for our town and it’s leaders
On the first Thursday of the month we gather at the Life Central Rooms 7:30 pm with a Praise | Prayer | Prophetic heart. We call this time The ‘Lighthouse’
On Sunday – at St.John’s primary school, Priory, Wellington – Before we start our Sunday gathering, we take some time to set our selves in the right direction usually about 10:10am.
All these times are open to anyone. If you are not used to being involved in prayer, that’s fine, just come along and observe to see what happens – we have nothing to hide.
This is where we are breaking the mould… in churches you often get ‘home’ group style meetings that are centred around teaching, but here we are centred around relationship. In fact, these groups are not just a side thought on the big picture of church… they are the very heart of where Life Central meets – this IS the Church! In this there isn’t a set of tasks to achieve or teachings to deliver, instead we want people to get to know each other – properly – and that takes time. So we have have a vision to meet in each others homes to BE together. That might be around a meal, a cuppa or a chat… we don’t mind, but the purpose is to really build our relationships, and from that place be able to love one another as Christ loves us. We know this will then spill out into our community – sharing fun & food with friends and neighbours naturally. It may find other expressions of God’s love for our community – but that’s for you to find out with the people you have build good friendships with. Life Groups are not led from ‘the front’ they will be led by the whole church as we grow together, and then as a body we can resource and support what you are doing… join in and have fun discovering ‘Life in all its Fullness’.
‘Girls just wanna have fun’ sang Cyndi Lauper… and at Life Central they do that and a whole lot more!
We are gathering the women on an occasional basis to meet, eat and learn together. That could mean watching a DVD or exploring some thoughts together, but it certainly means enjoying good company and having a great time.
The women also get to conferences and events such as Colour (the Hillsong conference for women) and other fun things planned on an occasional basis
Keep an eye on our diary for future events for the girls.
At Life Central we love to eat when we meet… it’s just more enjoyable that way! And our time for the guys is no exception so check the diary & you may well find a breakfast or BBQ coming up
