In May 2012 Sutton Village Church took part in the year long Merseyfest prayer initiative. This involves churches in Merseyside taking a prayer diary for one week and praying for their local community, the Merseyside area and the church that will receive the diary the following week.
On Sunday 6th May SVC received the prayer diary from CLC in St.Helens. Pastor Dave Hanratty presented us with the diary and prayed a blessing over us for the coming week.
During the week SVC prayed over many aspects of the local community. We prayed for the many activities that take place every day at SVC. We also prayed for St.Marks at Haydock who received the prayer diary the following week.
On Saturday 12th May, our youth club hosted a special prayer event in the church. They met for a prayer, shared a meal and then created a piece of artwork. The theme for the evening was Matthew 5:14, this was suggested by Megan, one of our young youth leaders.
